I'm pretty near constantly downloading something. Right now I'm downloading Shrek 2 and the DVD rips of Futurama season 1 (I already have the DVDs, but I want to replace the videos I already have on my computer with better quality ones). Yesterday I downloaded the last episode of Harvey Birdman Attourney at Law. After I finish my current downloads I'll download more Futurama DVD rips, and when those are done I'll download something else.

Do you download a lot? Are you downloading right now? What are you downloading? Are you on dial-up, you sorry sod?

I love the fishes 'cause they're so delicious.

Well, I used to ALWAYS be downloading something, then I lost all patience I had (I have dial up and always have), but now I'm getting back into constatnly downloading as of recently...I spent the last 3 days downloading a bunch of music videos.

I remember I used to have so much patience. I downloaded a 715MB movie file...over dial up, I downloaded every episode of X-men Evolution, Serial Experiments Lain, F3, Sailor Stars, The MAXX, and Cowboy Bebop (about 130MB per episode). I also downloaded Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie (350MB), Orgazmo (655MB) Death to Smoochy (715MB) and Adolescene of Utena (550MB)....and then a ton or music videos which are usually around 50MB, and tons of other stuff I'm sure. Now I must remind you this was all OVER DIAL UP...now I have trouble waiting half and hour, which is about how long a good quality MP3 takes me to download which is about all I download anymore, and I must wonder...where the hell did all my patience/insanity go?

I used to download music, anime, and other things. Nowadays, I just download stuff, like programs I usually need. :P

When I first got broadband, I'd always feel the need to download something, even if I didn't really want it that badly. I'm pretty sure I'm past that now, though.

I occasionally download music, but I don't really know where to download actual cool stuff from. 'Cept weird places like Kazaa lite or whatever, but for some reason downloads take AGES from there. Like, slower than a 56k would (I have ADSL or whatever the hell it's called)

I download lots of things. I have 19 episodes of a Japanese show, called Kamen Rider Blade, downloaded and I used to have 25 episodes of Kamen Rider Faiz downloaded. I also have an Inu-Yasha movie downloaded.

I'll download... somtimes... :D Actually, no. I constantly download trailers, episodes of anime and other stuff and music of Kazaa. I think that's what's making my computer really slow and bad. xD

I paid for the DVDs I'm downloading, and I paid to see the movie I'm downloading. The cartoons I downloaded are just as legal as recording to VHS. If they go after the likes of me they're just big stinkers. >:p

I used to download a lot, but I don't anymore. I probably should, I got 180gigs to kill.

I bought the Kamen Rider Faiz box set that has all of the episodes and I plan on doing the same with KR Blade, so I'm not doing anything illegal.

let me think..... the last time i downloaded somethink was last night, and the time before that was over 2 years ago. I guess you can blame it on my slow computer. I was downloading at 3.8kb/sec last night. lol

I upgrade my OS and all my installed applications about once a day, and that usually involves downloading rather a lot of source code.

I download way too much. Usually a couple things evryday. Which is why I'm always getting stupid viruses. :shoot:

I should really stop, but when I see something I want, like a traielr, or music...I just can't help it.

Take a break from downloading and upload your not-as-messed-up-as-mine FFX OST to my FTP, then. Please? (PM if yes, flame if no. :D)

Don't dload too much, but I did download a 4GB DVD once on dialup. Yeah I know, crazy.

I only download music from OverClocked Remix and VG Mix these days. The majority of "Popular" music doesn't appeal to me, and if I want to see a movie, I'll go to the cinema to enjoy the experience with friends, as opposed to downloading it and watching it alone.

There. That sounded pretty convincing, don't you think?

I'm downloading something virtually 24 hours a day using Bit Torrent. Movies, Music, Games, and Software. I only use Bit Torrent, I quit using Kazaa because Lately every file I've downloaded from them has been a dud. [Like the music files that are supposed to be a song but turn out to be 20 minutes of silence]. Besides with Bit Torrent you can download entire discographies, which is pretty convenient. I also get a lot of concerts using it from sharingthegroove. Besides that I mainly use Suprnova.org
