I'd second Delerium Vault.

I have a Bit Torrent question, though. I'm using Azureus on a Mac and it's giving two problems: When I download the torrent (not the file itself), somehow the full-size of the file appears, before I've even begun downloading it. And if, for whatever reason, I have to force quit or reboot, the files will start from zero %, even though the total received might be nearly %100. Any hints as to what might be up? I've been using the straight ahead Bit Torrent client for months now and wanted something with a bit more control. Azureus seems to work, save for these annoying glitches.

Guymauve (Guymauve), Sunday, 7 November 2004 21:50 (fifteen years ago) link

seems delerium vault is not taking new registrations, any idea when it might start again?

p-t, Sunday, 7 November 2004 22:02 (fifteen years ago) link

Wow, Delirium looks really cool. I wish they were open for registrations. Jack Battery-Pack, would you mind asking in the forums for us when/if they're accepting more, or if we can get registrations?

Dan I. (Dan I.), Sunday, 7 November 2004 23:22 (fifteen years ago) link

I use Tomato Torrent on a mac, Guymauve.

Alba (Alba), Sunday, 7 November 2004 23:23 (fifteen years ago) link

Audiofarm is great for all kinds of music production programs. Sequencers, VSTs, sample discs, even electronic versions of Sound on Sound. They have mac stuff and PC stuff. Don't be put off by the German on the intro page. It's almost all English inside.

delirium looks like an exclusive club

RJG (RJG), Sunday, 7 November 2004 23:29 (fifteen years ago) link

Haha, I'm a meber of Delirium-Vault - lots of interesting stuff, even if it does come across as a bit elitist. Someone put the Merzbox up early on...

Kevin Gilchrist (Mr Fusion), Sunday, 7 November 2004 23:31 (fifteen years ago) link

I hate those kinds of things. The guys at Mutant Liberation Front are the worst for that kind of shit. They like to pretend their private tracker doesn't exist and ban anyone that even mentions it. It's like, bitches I don't want to be a part of your geeky fucking "community" in order to get comics and share mine with you!

Dan I. (Dan I.), Sunday, 7 November 2004 23:33 (fifteen years ago) link

You guys that have memberships at Delirium, did you join any time recently? Any idea if memberships are closed for good, or is it temporary?

Dan I. (Dan I.), Sunday, 7 November 2004 23:35 (fifteen years ago) link

I'm also bemused by people who think that the authors of the things they are sharing should have no control over their distribution, but ban people who post their torrents on Suprnova - What right do you have to these things, if their creators have none?

Kevin Gilchrist (Mr Fusion), Sunday, 7 November 2004 23:36 (fifteen years ago) link

in a world gone mad it's hard to think right

RJG (RJG), Sunday, 7 November 2004 23:38 (fifteen years ago) link

I got into Delerium at point where they'd open the floodgates, so it seems. I'm not happy about the attitude of many people in the community there. However, it's a good source for films, videos, etc., that are not so easy to find in Finland, or elsewhere for that matter. And I actually use some of these in my lectures (the Debord film, for example). So I'll take the crunchy with the smooth, in this case.

Honour among thieves, indeed.

Guymauve (Guymauve), Monday, 8 November 2004 06:23 (fifteen years ago) link

And Alba, sorry, I'll try Tomato torrent. This Azureus thing is a, ahem, bit maddening.

Delerium were taking registrations up until two days ago...

They probably hit their user limit and need to purge some dead users before opening the gates again (my guess).. Most trackers seem to do this from time to time..

Chewshabadoo (Chewshabadoo), Monday, 8 November 2004 14:48 (fifteen years ago) link

ok folks:

* how do i configure things? i'm on mac os x, using internet connection sharing thru an ethernet cable in order to get my connection (the primary computer uses a shitty USB dsl modem to connect)

1) in Azureus do i set incoming TCP listen port to some random number, or use the default 6881?

2) in "enable tracker on http port" in the tracker server prefs, do i set to 6969, or some random number?

3) in my sharing preference pane, in the firewall section, do i make an exception for both these port numbers?

if i do these things right i ought to be "connectable," yet relatively safe, right?

so, like, the number of peers i have keeps fluctuating wildly between and i'm only sending tiny sizes at a time.. i feel that something's wrong even though downloading is a snap (this is w/torrents from shuntv)

Port forwarding is a headache.

Casuistry (Chris P), Saturday, 13 November 2004 22:08 (fifteen years ago) link

I can't even figure out how to *use* bittorrent!

Orbit (Orbit), Saturday, 13 November 2004 22:23 (fifteen years ago) link

It's, uh, pretty easy. You open the file, and the program starts downloading whatever you're trying to grab (if there is anyone "seeding" it).

Casuistry (Chris P), Saturday, 13 November 2004 22:49 (fifteen years ago) link

Maybe no one was seeding, because nothing happened.

Orbit (Orbit), Saturday, 13 November 2004 22:51 (fifteen years ago) link

Well, if it wasn't that, then it was something annoying that involves firewalls and port forwarding. That is a headache.

Casuistry (Chris P), Saturday, 13 November 2004 22:52 (fifteen years ago) link

Milo, the next best thing is that Crazy Mazey's place linked to at the top. It's mostly horror, but there's lots of other stuff too. I got a Bunuel movie and a Jodorowski movie there.

Dan I. (Dan I.), Sunday, 14 November 2004 07:01 (fifteen years ago) link

I don't think "port forwarding" is my problem, because even with all my ports open (on both my computer and the one I'm sharing my connection with), I get the same behavior.

Unless somehow my ISP has a firewall set up? I don't think that's possible.

Thanks anyway folks.

gah, fucking azureus worked great until it did a self update, now, it no longer gives an option of where to save torrents, it just dumps them into it's own folder. What kind of stupid idea was that?

your confidence is misplaced, darraghmacson

checked out thegeeks, looks good. no danny there either though. seems somehow the publishing industry has won and a solid source of pirated ebooks simply doesn't exist. guess it's kinda good in a way, keeps artists/writers going. (but in this niche instance it's a right pain in the arse)

Emperor Cos Dashit (Adam Bruneau), Tuesday, 8 January 2013 21:27 (seven years ago) link

hmm the readme.txt in the .rar archive is trying to get me to link to a dodgy site to get the passwords, i'm beginning to smell fish off this tbh

let's bitch about our stupid, annoying co-ilxors (darraghmac), Tuesday, 8 January 2013 21:33 (seven years ago) link

I would purely hypothetically conjecture that someone like myself might never have had any luck with "enter the last word on the 5th line of this dodgy website" passwords actually working even if they foolishly decided to go to the dodgy site in question.

They also may not have had any luck with the RAR password cracker they might possibly have tried on a few occasions, because the password is probably not actually a word but e.g. ~~~d0dgy-webs!tez.com~~~ and it'd need to try every combination of between 1 and 48 characters to find it, which would take... a very, very long time.

That hypothetical person would probably suggest looking for a different copy elsewhere tbh.

I like how the uploader mentions his "50-inch LCD" - not once but TWICE!!! LOL Like he's obviously just soooooo proud of it. Like it's just so huge no human could ever comprehend owning a humungous 50 inch TV!!! Gosh, I didn't even know they made TVs that big. "Hey everybody, look at me! I got a 50-inch LCD. Jealous much?" So ridiculous.

such an iconic and well curated site of the early torrent period and often had unique and rare content. None the wiser to what happened to Deimos, but it certainly sounds like a sudden and unexpected event that killed him - RIP.

Do the best sites require accounts? Do I need an invitation? Can I get a witness?

Miami weisse (WmC), Tuesday, 24 March 2020 13:17 (two weeks ago) link

I'm sure the "best" sites require accounts and invitations, but I have no idea what the "best" sites are these days. I just know I have yet to be stumped looking for something on the broader internet, and I really have no fear that, like, a documentary about dub music or Bill Frisell or even, for example, some Hitchcock film will be a vector for a malicious virus or whatever. (That said, if there was an invite site that is full of stuff I'm missing out on ... ).

the grateful dead can dance (anagram), Tuesday, 24 March 2020 19:49 (two weeks ago) link

i'm over it, ok? i'm fucking over it. the bbs scene when i was 13 was fucking scene rats trading games that weren't any good and that nobody had time to play anyhow, and all these private prestige trackers, same shit different day. fuck digital capital, give me digital potlaches. what's the point of digging up some incredibly rare digital transfer if it's only available to an "elite" cadre of seedboxers whose primary concern in life is their ratio? the ones who hoard what they have are worse than the ones who steal everything that aren't nailed down and give nothing in return. upload it to youtube, or fuck, even just fucking sell it, ok?

Kate (rushomancy), Wednesday, 25 March 2020 01:19 (two weeks ago) link

well, if you don't want to see yahoo serious' first film, a documentary about the effects of the coal mining industry on australia, that's your problem

if on the other hand you have found a high-quality rip of "coal town" out in the open i would love a link

Kate (rushomancy), Thursday, 26 March 2020 20:13 (two weeks ago) link

Just doing some deep googling, and ... is there a chance that it has never even been released on home video in any format? I can barely even find mention of its existence, period.

Josh in Chicago, Thursday, 26 March 2020 20:28 (two weeks ago) link

(btw, I totally saw Young Einstein in the theaters.)

Josh in Chicago, Thursday, 26 March 2020 20:30 (two weeks ago) link

Coaltown doesn't seem to be available on any of the private trackers so yes, it's probably never been released.

In general though, if you're interested in anything vaguely obscure or underground you're not going to find it on public torrent sites. Those interested in Shinsuke Ogawa, for example, aren't going to get hold of his films anywhere except on KG or PTP.

the grateful dead can dance (anagram), Thursday, 26 March 2020 20:34 (two weeks ago) link

I miss the W sites and was not cool enough/missed my chance to be on their successors, but tbh 95% of my listening these days is NTS radio and I should spend more on bandcamp (and then there's also spotify and 20 years of accumulated mp3s and 30 years of accumulated CDs), so what do I actually want to download GBs more music I'll never listen to for

a passing spacecadet, Thursday, 26 March 2020 20:53 (two weeks ago) link

ogawa's a good example, there's so much cultural bias (anglophone in particular) implicit in what hits public torrent sites and what doesn't. i see the unavailability of certain works as a cultural barrier to be overcome, and the people on the private trackers behave more like it's a form of currency to be accumulated.

well, i'm not here to fix the world's problems, i don't even have time to watch narrative media these days, but i'll always find time to bitch and moan about things on the internet!

Kate (rushomancy), Thursday, 26 March 2020 21:03 (two weeks ago) link

But it's only the people who are seeding Ogawa's films on private trackers who are overcoming that cultural barrier by making them available to other members. It's nothing to with "currency to be accumulated". I've built a healthy ratio on private trackers but I don't have a seedbox and never have.
