ABOUT







Torrents

Torrents are the post-2004 way of downloading files of any nature. They operate on the basis of distributed computing. Files are cut into small pieces, and these pieces find their way to the computers of many users, none of whom being aware of what exactly there is on his/her computer. Communication is done via certain protocols that insure that all pieces wanted by a downloader eventually make it home safely. One needs software like Azureus for this, as well as a google-like search tool to find torrents, although increasingly google itself (use "torrent" in the search line) can be used for that. An example of such a google-like "search torrent' is "a href="http://thepiratebay.org/tor/3357124/A_bunch_of_typefaces">Pirate Bay (for an example, see this), but there are hundreds of others. The companies, such as Linotype, are reacting against this with legal action.
