I'm back folks.

Night/Morning Chass, I look forward to more Tori in the future superthreads!

Hey André, any luck finding a good torrent site to replace Oink?

Daniel, have you bought the BOctoWar remasters yet?

And no, I've found no suitable Oink replacement. I do find Sordo rather useful, though. Not torrents, admittedly, but a good source.

Nope, I saw them in JB Hi Fi, but I haven't really considered making the purchase yet.

Don't buy them from JB. You'll fork out over $150, while Amazon's hocking them off for US$64. Our dollar's about on parity. I'll probably be ordering two, one for myself and one for the Maj. and splitting postage costs with him.

I've always wanted to get into using torrents but I just never have. I still have an old version of the P2P file-sharing system Ares that I use. And it works pretty damn well actually.

Ah Coolio, sounds like a plan. Well I'm not that mad keen, like I really really need to get them, so I'll probably give them a miss.....sign of the times

Don't want to jump in on what the Maj. and I are doing then? I think a third set wouldn't fuck me over at customs. Just checked it, and at the moment, the Maj. and I will each be paying AUS$75. In other words, less than half what you'd pay at JB! So much for Aussie music retailers. Ripoff merchants, more like it.

Honestly, if it were Achtung, Zooropa, and Pop, I'd be giving it a miss. But I love U2's early days, so I can dig this.

Can't claim credit for that one - some of the others have been using it previously on the Superthreads, though I forget who first coined it.

Torrents are pretty easy if you've 1. a good connection and 2. some computer competence. Nowadays, though, I prefer to use a site like Sordo with things uploaded to file transfer sites like Media Fire. It's even quicker and easier than torrents.

Hmmm, Nah I'll pass. I'll just download the extra tracks if I really want 'em. Thanks for the offer though.

Our quickest thread ever! Kilbrittain, Ireland was finished in 3 hours 36 minutes.

One day, we're going to visit Speed, Victoria (it's near Mildura) and make a concerted effort to finish it as quickly as we possibly can.
