I could Invite you m8. No Probs.

Back in the days, they would open registrations once a week or so. And i had worked hard to get on there when they were open.

For stuff I'm not in a rush to get:
Piratebay, Mininova, Demonoid, EZTV

For stuff I want ASAP:
RevolutionTT, Torrentleech, Midnight torrents, SceneAccess, Digital Hive

...and a couple of private pr0n torrent sites

I've got about 50 torrent sites in my bookmarks and maybe 10 more private sites I rarely ever used (too hard to keep a good ratio everywhere) but torrent sites come and go so you gotta keep those bookmarks up to date.

I'm not in a big hurry for much of anything, so I find Piratebay, isohunt and xtvi get me pretty much all I want.

I was on demonoid there about a month ago and noticed registrations where open guess it was luck, i don't use torrents much though usenet is much better.

Usenet you have to pay for but the speeds are much faster and usually have a better choice.

Problem is tho you only get a set amount of downloads a month and its easy to go over it.

Personally USENET isn't worth it.

Giganews is $24.95 a month for unlimited bandwidth.

Usenet does not file share, no uploads and your dl speed pins instantly and stays there.

Another reason why I switched from torrents to usenet. No ratio! You don't have to waste your bandwidth to keep a good "ratio" with a torrent site so you can keep downloading.

Some usenet services do have bandwidth limits, and most offer unlimited.

Giganews is one of the most expensive, but well worth it in my opinion. Not only do you get unlimited bandwidth, 20 SSL connections but the use of newsleecher for free as long as you are subscribed to giganews.

it is private but they allow DHT, so it is damn near as bad as all public trackers.

I use Torrentleech. Only thing I d/l is TV shows and it always maxes out my connection even on old torrents.
