    Yo,

    I've just downloaded a file from the ed2k network which happens to be in .rar format. However, the idiots who released it have set a password on it, and it's not the common p/w such as their web address (w/ and w/o www etc...)

    Does anyone know a way to get into the file using some sort of 'brute force' method. I seem to remember someone posting about it a couple of months back.

    that's what i thought, but think of it this way...

    you have a problem with some software / hardware and the only place you can see an answer is in a registered forum.

    why register, to make no posts at all, when bugmenot can get you in, get your answer and leave without any trouble?

    it's a godsend. why would i ever need to register for a german forum for? i wouldn't post there so it would not be worth it.

    but its true. A lot of the entries at bugmenot is all fake. This is why u register using those one time use email addresses like the ones at http://www.mailinator.com
    Just give any email using the @mailinator.com and go to mailinator.com and check that email box without registering or signing in or anything. Its my second choice when Bugmenot fails.
    blah blah blah... whatever...
