That'* where I did it form, but it said I need a torrent since it is a torrent file.

Sounds like you clicked on the wrong link. I know there is a direct download link because I just used it this morning

Yep. You must have downloaded from the botton link (Download via P2P) instead of the big green bar at the top

Newsgroups are the way to go. Super fast compared to torrents etc. I use a program called Newsbin pro and it works like magic.

I soo didn't realize that was a link. i thought it was just like a banner thing on the top telling you what that page was for.

I found that my ISP "throttles" subscribers who use limewire so,I switched to ARES. It handles everything that is needed to get it up and running,even the firewalls on routers I swear by it

My ISP eventually throttles everything but newsgroups which is the reason I use them. Being called newgroups throws people off since people use it mostly to swap music and files lol
