The New Nova?

"Daddy...? Where were you when Suprnova went down?" Listen guys... its not my fault! I know you all come complaining to me that Suprnova has gone - but really... get a grip... and most importantly... "DON'T PANIC". There are plenty of alternative sites out there. Not all as good as "The Nova" but still acceptible. My current choice is http://www.torrentspy.com as it allows you to click a link just under the search field to see the most recent torrents published. It gives you a list a bit like Suprnova was - but it does appear to be a little slower though. Probably getting hammered at the moment as the world searches for a new site - just like we are! Also in the Taoski News today, i have just updated to a new Anti-Spyware program. Even being a super technical guru i get Spyware and Adware on my PC every now and again. Not that i spend my time surfing porn sites or other dodgy areas of the net. But i do download and install quite alot of little applications that i check out and then delete when i realise that they are crap. This leads to other Spyware being installed on my PC. I have heard good things about Giant Anti-Spyware in the past and when i read over at http://bink.nu that the company and the software had been bought by Micro$oft.. i realised that it probably was as good as they say it is. So, i got a copy and tested it and it looks very good! I had recently ran Ad-aware and cleaned up and also a new one that Mr Cookie sent me which found more than Ad-aware. I then ran Giant and it found much much more! After the clean up i rebooted and my PC seems alot more responsive! I'm impressed. So, my current Xmas A-List is: Torrent Site (for games/apps/movies): http://www.torrentspy.com Torrent Site (for comics scans): http://zcultfm.com Torrent site (for XBOX stuff): http://xbox.udp.at/ P2P Application for single songs/files: http://www.warez.com Anti Virus Software: Symantec Anti-Virus Corporate Edition Anti Spyware: Giant Anti-Spyware Browser: Firefox
