    Hmm. I was not counting on this. The Tor proxy for the bounce page is having issue. It's just loading a blank page. If anyone has the x10 link, that still works. If the bounce page does not come back up soon, we will switch to plan B. Please don't PM me about it being down. I know. :D

    It's still down, so time for plan B.

    For everyone who got a PM, in that URL is this massive random letter/number mess between the / and .
    Take that mess and past it after this.

    http://is.gd/

    So it should look like this.

    Now to get plan C ready. :D

    I almost didn't post this response but I'm a bit confused by this thread. It says it's for torrents but I don't see any nor can I find any good torrents via internet searches. Youtube seems to have all the good coverage and it's freely available, quickly searchable, and fairly good quality. Last year I downloaded SBS coverage via torrents...it was good stuff. I'm not sure what I'm missing here.

    :confused

    Can someone explain to this clueless fellow what this thread is all about? Is someone posting torrents or not?

    Thanks

    Spreads the load.

    I am a bit surprised the videos are sticking around on YouTube. They banned my account for uploading a video with music in the background, marking it private, and sharing it with one friend. It has 5 views. :huh If YouTube works for you, stick with it.

    Some of us like having the video files to play back on other devices, along with HD quality stuff. We are also a backup because last year the normal sources died and left us without coverage. So we are keeping on top of it this year.

    Due to legal "Fight Club" reasons, you have to PM me for more info. Nothing more will be posted here.

    Some friends and I get together every 4 or 5 days to watch the race. UTube isn't reliable (they tend to disappear), but a file sitting on my hard drive is.

    Yea, Bummer no doubt. I thought I had found a better way to watch/download the rally instead of BT until it was gone this morning when I looked for stage 04.

    A lot of those videos are official from the Dakar channel. They post up a bunch every day.
