    Posted in the Stanley Cup Final thread, but more of a computer issue ...

    So, forgot to DVR Game 1 and it's killing me. Anyone able to point me toward a copy online? I pretty much don't know anything about torrents, other than I just downloaded bittornado. Is that any good? Did I just fark my computer? WTF should I be doing?

    1) Click on the .torrent file in the "Download" row.

    2) Click "Save" when the window pops up.  You might have to select the destination for the .torrent file afterwards

    3) Once you've saved it, go to wherever you've saved it and double-click on it.  Then, you'll have to select the destination for the actual .mpeg or .avi file.

    4)  Wait.  There's only one seeder of this file, so it should take a while to download.  Might take you a day or so.

    And I use bittornado also. It's OK. I hear that Azureus is better but sucks more RAM while it's running.

    Thanks a million, Fat Dom. Wasn't sure if it should be taking so long.

    Torrents rule. Just discovered them a week ago and have been d-loading old Deadwood episodes, entire CDs, etc. It's a beautiful thing.

    As stated earlier, there's only one seeder. So sit back and relax and just let it download. It's going to take a while, probably a day or two.

    Torrents are golden, discovered them a few years ago and I've never looked back. Beats the heck out of the Napster-ish programs out there. Though I still use DC++ almost every other day as well.

    Hm, I thought there would be at least two people to chime in on how we're stealing from the actors, production companies, etc... At least that's the case when it's about music. Carry on.

    It's great for those of us in Canada who can't see Rescue Me until the fall.
