Whats up to all the seed freaks and snatch master's? (haha guess that second one has two meanings )
I have been thinking about putting this topic up for a few days and haven't really figured out how I was going to word it, but tonight I figured I would just start typing and see where it went.
What I mean is this...
Do you find yourself aimlessly searching your trackers for files you think should be seeded more and download them to seed them?
Do you spend hour's researching seedbox's to find out which one is best for your needs?
Spend time in your tracker's forums just to get your name out there to show people you care about the site?
Build relationship's with people on your tracker's and help them move up in class by snatching your/their uploads?
Freak out when you move seedbox's and some of your file's get corrupted in the transfer?
Spend hour's on this site finding unique things people have posted, or find secrets that exist on your trackers web page?
These are just a few things that I do, and I enjoy it a lot. A few months ago I made a life style change to get off drugs and alcohol and this torrenting hobby has been a great way to keep me out of trouble. I find things I can watch/listen to during periods of the day I'm worn out or going to bed. When I'm not at work and itching to do something I can search the forums on this site or my tracker's for something to talk about or research and keep my mind on positive things.
I can remember when I was 12 or 13 years old and kept my Kazaa client running 24/7 for a week straight at my dads house while I was at my Mom's for her week ( my parents were divorced with week on week off custody) and the reason I did that was not for ratio or to move up in class. It was so people could get the files that I enjoyed so much and felt other people should have the same opportunity to download them like I did! Needless to say that month apparently 250gigs had been uploaded from our household internet connection and my Dad got some outrageous bill (this was 12ish years ago unlimited wasnt where we were at)
Now I always got a seedbox going, seed as long as I can, and try to gain more knowledge and techniques of file sharing/torrenting and just technology in general. I wouldint have learned so much about computer's and how they work or operating systems if I hadnt become part of some tracker's
Anyway, maybe you could share a funny story or something you gained from TI or a tracker? Maybe what you feel your dedication to the cause is?
