And I'm pissed off cos I cant find any ways around. I have other torrent sites but they don't have a specific ebook I want. Suppose I may have to borrow it from the library. I'm poor I cant afford to buy books. :)

Stick the address of the site in the box at the bottom of this page. Should get you round any blocks

I don't know why they bother blocking. Total waste of time. UK traffic to Piratebay went up after the block, because of all the free publicity the blocking gave them. Talk about backfiring.

hidemyass was a bit hit and miss, mostly miss. Nevermind, come.in is working again, at least for KAT, TPB and Isohunt. :) Got my book just. :) And a few others to keep me going. :)

I'm a member of a smallish site, which has its good points, but the biggest downside is you have to seed back at least 1:1. Wouldn't mind but everyone that wants that torrent has already got it by the time I get to it and I'm left with no one to seed it to. :shrug: You get points for seeding even if there's no one to share it with though, so that's good, just takes longer.
