    So im going off to college in the fall . . . in the states

    looking for advice about how to get my shit I know there have been similar threads but they're mostly directed at p2p. . .

    I've learned to stay away from torrents and now I mostly use direct downloads (ie. megaupload etc.) and usenet once in a while

    I realize that newsgroups are a must, especially with the SSL encryption, but im researching other ways to cover my ass. I don't know if my university will be monitoring the use of direct downloads but I would prefer not to find out.

    Is setting up a VPN, such as through HotSpot Shield a good idea? Or maybe should I try to sniff out a connection? (I really dont have any expertise in this area)

    I would highly appreciate any advice you guys can contribute . . .so what ever you got though it at me, pleeze!

    Ummm......it could be cheap.
    If you happen to have some spare money, get a dedicated server[seedbox]. You can install utorrent/rtorrent/what-ever-torrent and some ftp server thus allowing you to use torrents and download the files though FTP [you can use encrypted connection]. ( Don't know why you learned to stay away from torrents... ) This way you only connect to your seedbox.

    Well I got a warning from my isp for doing a torrent once, so that set me back permanently. . . sorry I'm really unfamiliar with the whole seedbox/torrent thing. But if ur doing a torrent through ftp are you still seeding? Anyways I heard private trackers are a real pain and you have to contribute all the time - I'm more of a pick and choose downloader and I wont be able to be spend much time messing too much with what ever is needed. Also it would be wise to stay away from any kind of uploading in college.

    . . .maybe you could elaborate a bit on what I would have to do

    Depends where you want to leech from. It can vary from $0.00 to $100.00 month.

    It's probably the best option for you. Usenet maybe cheaper.

    Wow looks like your a real fan of that graboid
    (sorrry i cant pm yet)

    could you go in more detail in how it works? I didn't see much about where the downloads come from or how they are downloaded and if there is any encryption

    . . .and this is solely for movies right?

    btw, that lifetime of free leeching does sound pretty appealing
