    Request for a torrent section.

    A Torrent section to share these hard-to-find programs to run our little dream machines would be a great idea. Maybe on a already established torrent site if the owners are worried abuot copyrights and scary lawyers...
    I personally like thepiratebay.org
    I have things to contribute as well but it would be nice to have a trade program so i can aquire programs I need. If the moders and owner don't like that idea but anyone else who does like it, leave me a msg and we will organize something.

    We can't be seen to be openly endorsing pirate software sites

    we had a DC++ hub goin on a little while back, but that wasn't really affiliated with mp3car.com exactly. Probably not a good idea to be posting this suggestion though, we need to support developers that develop commercial things like mobile GPS and such, because without them, what would we have?

    2 Kicker Comp 10"
    Epia M-9000, 256 MB DDR, 120 Gig HD
    Lilliput 7" VGA Touchscreen
    Check it out?!

    As far as I'm concerned, knowledge belongs to the world. I'll donate, but I refuse to pay up to 200 dollars for decent software.

    with that atitude what's to inspire developers to investing huge time & resources to development? how many people you know that work for free?

    stealing is stealing, no matter how you "justify" it....

    Nothings free in this world, only MP3CAR forum membership

    If you've never paid for expensive software, pressumably you have downloaded stuff via NG's Torrents, P2P etc... In which case you know the sites and how to do it, so why the request for a forum on here that will attract lots of attension, probably get the torrents closed, and will certainly alienate this forum from the likes og IG, Powerloc, etc. It will ultimately make software harder to find, not easier!!!

    agreed. If Nike spends $5 to make a pair of shoes and sells them at $200, it still doesn't give you the right to steal them. You can choose not to buy the shoes.

    And it's that mentality that drives up software prices for those that actually do purchase it.

    The knowledge isn't the issue. It's the multitudes of hours spent putting that knowledge in a usable form that belongs to the person or group that codes the software. Why shouldn't someone that creates a product that is wanted by others be compensated for the work they put into it?

    You don't work for free. Why should programmers?
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.
