I download torrents everyday and the wealth of interesting stuff that's made available really astounds me - it's a dream come true. For example, being able to listen to a certain Aztec Camera gig in Milano that I couldn't attend in october 1984 (cos I had a maths test the morning after....) is simply amazing. Plus, it's a nice (virtual) social thing, you get to interact in real time with all those guys from all over the world, you see all those nice flags....
BUT torrents are terribly slow when compared to rapidshare (or other similar providers). Having to leave your pc on for days on end means: 1)you get a higher electricity bill 2)certain parts of your pc (especially hard disks) will have a shorter lifespan. whereas with a rapidshare premium account [10 euros a month =pretty cheap] you can download a entire DVD in a couple of hours. Don't get me wrong, I don't work for them or anything - it's just that I am perfectly sure that having a message board where you post links pointing to rapidshare files [like many warez boards already do] would be a faster and cheaper solution than torrents. If we all chose that method, our only problem would be having too much stuff to watch/listen to!!!! (and we wouldn't have to leave our computers on night and day...) Am I wrong? If so, please, WHY? cheers everyone

I'm afraid you'll have to download it again - I did it myself just now and the .rar file seems to be okay. Remember never to pause/resume the download. Email me if you keep getting errors and I'll... more
