i've just managed to get signed up and the first dvd is on its way quite quickly - the trick is to stay online and every few minutes refresh the account registration page. they have some automatic system where inactive accounts are deleted to free up new ones.

Cheers, got it coming down at a nice speed.

Over the years of watching dodgy pre release and cam shot films i have always had the conclusion that : -

1 - You can watch a dodgy picture if the sound is good.

2 - If the picture is 100% perfect but the sound is lacking you will find it difficult to through.

Many thanks.

Top Tip

Download a program called FairUse Wizard 2 , this will allow you to compress your DVD's to a 700mb .avi file with no loss of quality.

Not seeing any seeders for Cardiacs Vid II, i also see you have a couple of upload problems with it.

I will keep an eye on it. Maybe pick up the seeder in a while.

Got a decent speed, between 60 - 100 kb on the first dvd, the other one is just dead i think. Dreek needs to do a bit of tinkering to get it working.

Hey Folks, Just woke and found my 'puter had shut down overnight! Thats why no seeder...Hope I haven't a nasty inside!

I was trying to post the torrent earlier but Dime banned it for not having a setlist for Islington.

DVD will be pretty slow to come down for 2-3 days then around 40-50% it'll speed up. should be finished by next weekend. (it better be, I'm off to China)

Having traded VHS for many years and seeing the quality reduce after copying many generations, I am a big fan of the Dime requirement that things are posted in as original and high quality as possible. So I will stick with the DVD transfer. What happens after that, well people wil do what they do....I saw and AVI on Isohunt a few days ago but no seeder.

Enjoy!

Oohh you scary the fairy with that mask Mr. BC!

Yes, any sane person would be preparing for the next new store opening in June, but I am back to Canton for 17 days of buying Xmas stuff and trying to run the business by Email.

It becomes so that when someone asks "you want Chinese food" you shudder 'cos you know the meat or fish is surrounded by gristle & bone you have to suck & spit out after removing what protein you can get.

At leat McD's & KFC have hit town, or there's always the "Bruce Lee" brand chinese fast food. (Coming to a food fair near you!)

And yes yes, I'll get these discs off before I go, I promise!!!!!!!!

I had a job in a Chinese restaurant back when I didn't have any standards about what jobs were supposed to be like, etc.
It was a great celebration day when one of the cooks brought in the bloody corpse of a rabbit he'd just run over with his car! Rabbit goood

Spent a bit of time in Hong Kong, just before the handover. The docks stank but it didn't stop people and me eating from a street side wok chef ( one man and a wok ) who had just got his catch of the day.

I remember seeing pedigree dogs in cages that were ever so small, ready to take away and cook yourself.

Some pretty low standards and disturbing sights.

I stuck to the breakfast noodle bars, totally satisfying at 8 in the morning just before you went to bed.
