  • How old are you?

    I entered the torrent world quite early on, I was about 13 when I discovered them and at first I hated them! I didn't understand seeds/ leechers and why I was uploading faster than downloading or the other way round. The only thing I used torrents for were Anime (DBZ)

    A few years on I am in love with torrents! I'm not exactly a master torrenter as I am constantly learning new things but having been a torrenter for so long I can't imagine my life without it! The majority of the people I know are in the 15-24 age range so I think that maybe that is the same age range that will dominate here.

    How old are you and when did you discover torrents?

    Pretty sure we have had about ten thousand of these same threads.

    But I'll answer the poll for participation's sake.

          Ahaa, that's for certain!

          So far it seems I was right in predicting that 15-24 year olds will dominate in this category

              Dragon Ball Z was my childhood fixation! I literally ran to the screen at about 5pm when Toonami play my episodes with my sister. Good times, although never got why I was first exposed to DBZ first then later Dragon Ball. Either way, I loved DBZ and the movies too! Toonami was really missed, I practically stopped watching all cartoons period when Toonami went off the air. Now I just watch a little family guy here and there.

                  But the question is how are those of us of this generation, living that ethic out in the early 21st century

                    LOL Cinema! :L

                    Chemstudent, Toonami was the best, I used to be on that channel every day, I watched shows like Samurai Jack and stuff, part of me died when the channel became Cartoon Network Too :-( I have watched the entire series of Dragonball to Dragonball GT at-least twice, best anime ever dude!

                    Me too Splendid, I hated the idea of torrents as I wanted top speed all the time, but once I understood its true awesomeness there was no going back :-D

                      I'm a month older than the last time I took this poll. The one where the top bracket was "30+" then, too.

                        I discovered BitTorrent in 2001 when it had only been "out" for a month or two, and the "official" site about the protocol and how it works was the only site around pretty much. I thought it was super cool, I made some torrents (one for each track of an MP3 album :p) and helped a friend download the album from me. We were impressed, but also convinced it would never catch on because people were too lazy and would just keep using DirectConnect and KaZaA. Seems I was wrong, when's the last time anyone used DirectConnect? :>

                        I'm 26, and this thread makes me feel old. :)

                              Haha I'll just straight up copypaste my answer from the previous one:

                              24 this year. Btw groupdividing overlaps so...next year I'll be mysteriously and simultaneously in two groups (like a ninja)

                              Edit: discovered at 15. A guy showed me "a new way" to DL anime and KazaA and Limewire quickly went byebye.
