    It's entertainment software. I already graduated so I don't get student discounts anymore.

    There are numerous Torrent client programs... I used uTorrent for years.
    It is no more difficult than installing anyother software.
    WARNING:... today ISP providers look for software/media pirating. Especially on the upload side, which people not familiar with torrenting have no idea they are uploading the files they copied 24 hours a day to all comers.
    I have pirated 100's of movies before the industry made a viable streaming alternative available. Now I rent them legally.
    My advice,,,, don't do it. It isn't safe anymore for those not familiar with the process.

    Thanks. Those won't do. The Kepler program has treasure maps unique to just that program. Nobody else has it.

    People make copies of CD's they have purchased most of the time. Some make them for friends, an illegal act.

    Copyright infringement is serious and the use of a torrent can only be explained as a desire to steal someone's work without paying for it.

    Now that I've covered the ethics of torrents...

    I disavow any knowledge of them.

    :biggrin:

    I have burned many movies years ago.
    I still have two case things full of them. At the time I justified the act because there was no good alternative available other than paying thru the nose to buy a movie, go see in theater and be disappointed yet again, or wait months for DVD rental.
    So I pirated instead.
    Now of course there are multiple streaming options available...so I rent legally.
