Every now and then, I like to dabble in some parts of the underground world of cyberspace. Last night, while dabbling, I decided I wanted to download Quake 3 since the CD I had went corrupted and didn't want to restort to day longs queues of IRC or the evils of Kazaa when someone told me that there was a new concept called torrents. I went ahead and tried it, the program can be found at http://bitconjurer.org/BitTorrent/ I've personally never tried Kazaa myself but I'm told the concept is similiar. But I was wondering if it was entirely safe. I know I had to give up some system resources but it was only for 2 hours. I need an expert opinion if this is in fact a safe alternative to Kazaa? Ran Spybot, Ad-aware, NAV-- all came up clean. I haven't installed it yet. Am waiting for an expert opinion before doing so. Kudos to the wise!
