Yeah, those videos are well worth getting aren't they? And I've got to say, I LOVE the sound of that white RS that features in many of those videos, and it goes pretty well too by the looks of it!

I'm glad the links I provided are appreciated, and of course, if anybody stumbles across anymore, please add them to this thread.

They certainly will, as long as you've installed the DivX codec. Easiest way to do this is to head to http://www.divx.com/divx/download/ , enter your email address there (only if you're interested in receiving emails about future developments of DivX, otherwise untick the "Yes, I would like to receive notices of new DivX versions and other DivX news" box), select your operating system from the possible choices, then click the big download button.

Once you've installed the DivX software, you can view DivX encoded content in any media player you might have installed on your system.

Default Look what I found!

Hi all
Check out this link...

http://www.torrentspy.com/torrent/10...VID_VIZARD_pdf

File info:
Size: 43.13mb
Adobe v5.x + PDF document

You need BitTorrent or a similar torrent download client to get it.
I've found it very handy... you can use acrobat reader to search the entire book. (it beats flicking through pages then reading until you find what you need).

Yeah... My brother DCC'd it from some guy on IRC about a month ago.
I just thought I should share the goodness

Is the torrent working? Has anybody tried downloading it yet?
This is my first attempt to share files with BitTorrent :(

Yeah I've tried via BitComet and so far after letting it go for 2 hours I have download a total off 500b!! So basically no I don't think it's working. Will let it go over night and see what happens!!!

No offence but you are uploading it aren't you? As you are the only seeder?

I think the torrent is working, I have 2 peers downloading it.... but since I'm the only seed and I'm on dial-up it's gonna be slow until others DL & seed it :(
Not to worry.... I'll keep seeding so the torrent doesn't die.

No worries!

I'm still seeding the file and about 7 people have completed the download, so you should be able to get it a bit faser now

Torrentspy now says there are 4 seeds so hopefully they keep seeding it.

that 253 kw sr20 is insane. a little riced out for my taste, but it would be one fast esky

and man that intercooler is disgusting... i wouldve done a water to air cooler somewhere inside the bay.

thanks for the links! handy!
