    Hey guys I used to be into cracking and stuff a few years back, I was an admin on a board called the EWB. back then downloads and things like that were all done via FTP. In the past year or two tho I sorta lost track of the goings on and recently i've started getting back into it. however, i've noticed FTP is basically gone and these torrent things now seem the new way. so can any1 provide a short tutorial or explanation on how these work? olso, keeping within the forum rules of course, provide info on were i could find them? i've had a look through a few forums but all i can find is patchy info. thanks in advance!

    sorry, the patchy info is due to the fact that it is illegal. Unless of course you own the original, then i think it is ok. That's why no one can really say much, but if you do a search of the word torrent i figure you'll find plenty of stuff.
