    Thanks.

    BT and eMule for older and more rare stuff definately. Newsgroups are extremely fast however they only tend to have newer stuff and requests. There are binary groups dedicated to almost everything though, you might check around.

    Bt and Newsgroups are good if you can find the right places. I'd say emule is the best because alot of people have big share folders of just about anything from along time ago and they never stop offering them.

    Newsgroups are gret if you can get a server with good retention rates, and you have to pay.

    But the easiest and free way (although a bit slow at times) has to be eMule.

    Should I join private BT groups, or just public groups?
    Do private BT groups offer more rare/old stuff?

    Personally I think it is quite hard to find rare stuff in BT. For example, I'm looking for Bufferzone, Sandboxie (registered), Prevx1 (registered). I couldn't find any in BT. It may be either it is not offered or it is in somewhere else.

    Did anyone notice most public big torrent sites seem to contain what other have? When one thing doesn't appear in several BT public sites, there is very little chance it may appear in other BT public sites. If it appears in some BT public sites, many of them will have it.

    By the way, it seems BT is the most dangerous one due to its nature.
    We know the IPs for all peers and seeders. Someone just need to join the stream and can gather all these IPs.

    I thought Newsgroups are just for super new stuff since old posts keep deleting.

    How could I find true non-fake non-mislabelled non-infected files in eMule?
    I have installed PeerGuardian. Is that enough to find the true quality files?
    Should I use the search provided by eMule? Reliable? Can search for the whole network?
    Where's the best places to spot these ed2k links?

    Hmm... So what's the points of using newsgroup?
    It has to be piad to access to the binary newsgroups.
    Which binary newsgroups will try to contain everything (new or old; popular or rare)?

    It looks like you should use newsgroups only if you are very impatient and wish to get the files as fast as possible. Otherwise the files will leak out and spread worldwide. It's just a matter of time, right?

    Or does newgroups contain some rare stuff which can only find there?

    Any good places to spot good ed2k links, and find rare/old stuff on ed2k network?

    How about other P2P networks - limewire, Ares, WinMX etc.?

    How about IRC?

    If you want new and old music you should check out soulseek. It has a lot of users, and tons over tons of content
    I miss the days of random nut '03
    Click for more activation options, then activate by telephone. Run the keygen.
    if I call them, aren't they going to get me? (you know, down there)

    Torrent Harvester can yield some nice results from time to time.

    for really rare stuff, i like emule. In the past i've gone onto several torrent sites and newsgroups and couldnt find what i was looking for. I knew that amongst the masses, someone must have it. And indeed there were. On emule and 9 people sharing it. a simple search is all it took too instead of site hopping. I only use it as a last resort though as its slow.
