should be able to find alot. ive heard from friends that those college networks tend to have tb's of data that you can pilfer from. music, movies, everything...

but yeah, if they have torrents blocked, theres really no good way to take advantage of that unless youre using some form of pay service.

like they can tell if you're torrenting and they come knock on your door and block your computer from using the internet ever again. I've actually heard of it happening to people too.

as i understand it, they monitor how much data is being transferred from your port, not that you are using torrenting software. my roomate freshmen year had the IT people call his cell phone and ask him if he was torrenting. he said no, said he was online gaming, and quickly closed out of his torrenting software. they said, hey that's weird, youre data usage just dropped a whole bunch.

after that, he just limited it to downloading one thing at a time. if you arent downloading a bunch of things at once, you should be fine. ive torrented at both colleges i went to and never had problems because i would only download one or two things at a time. they tended to go after people using limewire and whatnot more. no guarantees though, its always a gamble torrenting on campus.

this is 100% legal if you want some live concerts:

they're probably using the same monitoring service as my school, i havent found a reliable way around it due to lack of time on campus with my laptop but i have a few ideas in the works

Use rapidshare/megaupload downloads instead of torrents.

I don't use them often, but they seem to have just as much stuff as torrents.
