Yea there has been a massive crack down on them. Haven't used one a while now so would be interested to see what other people are using

Downloaded some photo editing software from kickass over the weekend.  You have to go via a proxy site.  First time in a good while right enough.

What's the latest with using torrents?  I haven't had the need to use them for ages having switched to Kodi for all TV/movie content, however I need a piece of software and had real difficulty finding and accessing the usual sites like piratebay and kickass because of the new google restrictions and my internet provider blocking them.

Are they as good as finished or has something else replaced them? What have people switched to?
I was looking for an audiobook of Born To Run* on a Pirate Bay proxy the other day and there was bugger all on it.

*In my defence I have the hardback book your honour.

Audible.com will give you a free download of your first audiobook, if that's any help ...

slightly off-topic-ish.
Anyone know where I could download a copy of Microsoft Project etc?

unless you're paying for the software, you're bang on topic!

Kickass would prob be your best bet. Google kickass uk proxy, click the 2nd or 3rd link and connect to it via a proxy site

if you are having trouple accessing the torrent sites just google "unblocked" and use the top link (it changes quite a bit).  At the minute it is https://unblocked-pw.github.io

Born to Run  -
 ebook  http://ul.to/d6idnkg5
audio book
http://rapidgator.net/file/3041e13b90328bbc002933863efa78c7/_Born_to_Run.rar.html

For file sharing of all content under the sun, warez-bb.org still rules the roost and if what you want isn't there then bolt.cd is very good for tv shows,  e books and audio books.

For torrents probably ET torrent, but navigation is disturbed by a plethora of those pop up windows, for peace of mind I use an add on called no script, however that doesn't work so well with sport stream web pages.

Yer behind the curve lads. KAT has been gone for a while - it got raided in 2016 and was shut down. The 'proxies' (they have nothing to proxy anymore) are just taking the old KAT torrent database and a few new torrents, if that. Seeder to leecher ratios tend to be very poor on those imitation sites.

If you want a general use torrent site this is by far your best bet - https://rarbg.to/torrents.php

If you like porn, rarbg might stand out as being the best, but that's just a wild guess.

 It is limited when it comes to films/tv content  that are out of the mainstream, however, even the popular 2016 Korean film Handmaiden  is only available in large files with out of sync subs and a popular Danish Film  Krigen 2015  is not available at all.
Audio books and ebooks are limited there.

You'll notice I said mainstream. Most movies and most US/UK tv shows are available on it. That covers 95% of peoples' needs.

http://audiobookbay.me/ for audiobooks.

But continuing using the KAT copies - you'll have fun with them copying a database that was acquiescing to DRMAs in its later days, meaning it has absolutely massive holes in its catalogue.

1.8gb photoshop cs6 downloaded from kickass on sat in less than 15 mins. The seed count was low,  but no complaints from me!
