Introduction: How to Be a Cyber Pirate!

I am not responsible for any legal issues ;P

Step 1: Download and Install a Torrent Client

I don't know which one you want personally I prefer uTorrent

Step 2: Searching for a Torrent

The biggest problem with torrents is that people don't always seed, these people are referred to as leechers.

I usually go to www.thepiratebay.org or www.mininova.org


once you get there pick something you would like to have; software, music, movies, books, "illegal" documents(i.e. The Anarchists Cook Book - yes its technically illegal because you have to put yourself on a registrar upon purchase.), etc

Step 3: Selecting Your Torrent

in the image below we have several options, your best two options are outlined in red.
First off we choose our best options from the title of the torrent, the two I have selected both have detailed titles, one even going so far as to explain how it was made, the other giving the authors name (which is accurate), both give the title of the book and the year it was published.

to narrow down our choice we then look at the seeds, this is highlighted in bright green, and the leechers which is hilighted in blue

The first torrent: The Anarchist Cookbook by William Powell(1971){badluck13_7} has 7 seeds, and 0 leechers. This is okay, but before we select this torrent we will check the next

The second torrent: The Anarchist Cookbook (1971 book scanned) the ORIGINAL book has 43 seeds and 0 leechers, this makes the second torrent your best choice. dclick the torrents title

On this screen you will want to read the comments for any complications with the download

Step 4: Downloading

Click the download link, and it will download the .torrent file which should automatically open with uTorrent, or your chosen application, and begin to download. Congratulations, you just downloaded your first torrent and are on your way to being a pirate. Now Remember seed do not leech

    Download the stuff WARNING : Don't Upload or you will be in cuffs

    Pirate:Any last wishes

    Suspect : I just want to tell that I seed torrents

    Pirate: Bye :)

    People, it's very, very, unlikely the cops will be at your doorstep if you do this.

    They go after the guys who distribute copyrighted things in mass amounts, not the guys who download them.

    Hey I downloaded the anarchy cook book a few years ago and found it full of lies.
    I'm not saying its a bad book, its just over half the stuff is outdated and the rest either doesn't work or is useless.

    just say'in...

    Yeah,,, just think of the peeps thats spent GOOD money for that (also some of the stuff is Dagerous becuse they dont tell you enough !!!!!!!!!!!!

    Screw it being illegal! If every country was fair to each other, we wouldn't need to pirate to get some good stuff. (Also, FYI, it's okay to download a torrent, iso or rom of something you have, like: If you have an origial Castlevania Symphony of the Night, then you can download and keep the iso.)

    Don't you think that that is a tiny weeny little bit illegal? P.S. I don't wanting authorities turning up at the doorstep only because I downloaded something

    They don't turn up, but it is way illegal.

    thought so... lol

    But it is free. So is stealing, but what happens if you put your jewels out the front door for people to model their cuff-links off of them? That is torrenting.
