Even the T1 connection in EEE is not spared from the vigilance of Dilnet. One thing great with EEE's internet connection is that it has great speeds... most especially at night. Among my favorite pastimes is to watch movies, and these I readily download from the internet. Not only that I get to download movies for free, most of it are in DVD quality. I get these movies from a forums site wherein I a member of. Some of the members upload the movies in upload sites such as megaupload, rapidshare, sendspace et al.
A typical xVid - DVD quality movie file is about 700Mb; with EEE's internet speed, I can download it for as fast as 1.5 hours with a download speed of 2000 kb/s! This is one of the reasons why I don't usually go to moviehouses nowadays. Going to the mall in order to watch a movie is impractical for me; not unless the movie would be a future classic.
I guess I have to kiss "downloading movies for free" goodbye now, since Dilnet already blocked my favorite uploadsites from now on. I can't blame them for doing that. Though I have to admit, they are 'killjoys'.
Anybody who knows a workaround for the filters, I'd be glad to hear from you. ;)
