First, if you use Firefox, download and add NoScript. Then, keep checking Demonoid.me until registrations are open and register. If you get a virus, enter safe mode and use Malwarebytes, Dr. Web CureIt, and AdAware.

But don't commit piracy because it is illegal and immoral.

For those who don't know, you can also read new york times articles for free by deleting everything in the URL after the question mark, including the question mark.


Stickin' it to The Man
and now
the Girls

Equal Rights does have a purpose after all.

Yep, and on the FireFox NoScript - just give the site TEMPORARY access so you don't open any doors you want closed later.

I've used NoScript for years and it's one of the few programs worth donating to.

First episode was on youtube and I have to say I am a fan of Lena Duhnam now. The joke about "invaluable" and her asking for $1100 a month from her parents are right on target, which is probably why people are upset.

Doesnt look like there is a hulu option and I am not going to subscribe, so it looks like I am going to have to wait to watch the show. I am not going to pirate stuff.

For free tv shows, I prefer streaming video sites to torrents. The video quality may not be that great, but it's much faster.

If you pirate Girls, you are a value transferer, which, in your economic ideology, is worse than Hitler.

I've tried to watch a couple of Pay-Per-View boxing matches on streams and each time the quality was atrocious. Not that I really had much right to complain.

"Most viruses get in through plugins like Adobe Flash which are full of bugs and security loopholes."

Yep. I got infected a couple of years ago through Adobe Flash. Malwarebyes was the only thing that would clean it off. It's a great program and its free.

After I got hit I switched to Firefox and added: Adblock Plus, BetterPrivacy, Ghostery, NoScript & Redirect Remover. I highly recommend them. Not only do they block viruses, super cookies and ads which is a good thing. But by doing so they also improved website speed. Websites today are so script intensive that blocking that crap makes them run faster.

JL-- which sites do you recommend for streaming. love to check this one out and catch season 2 of game of thrones

If you prefer to stream video, as I do, I would recommend running your browser sandboxed by a program called Sandboxie (lightweight and free to use).

You will need to keep plugins enabled to stream video, but any malicious activity that happens inside of the sandbox will stay inside of the sandbox, unless you are dumb enough to manually recover a malicious executable from the sandbox and then run it. I've been using it for over a year and am now so confident that I don't even bother to run real-time antivirus software, although I still keep Malwarebytes installed and updated just for peace of mind.

I've found this approach to be extremely effective and convenient, so I don't know why so few people use it. Although, if sandboxing becomes too widespread, malware producers will have an incentive to find a way around it.

As it is now, it is practically a silver bullet for web browsing security, allowing full use of scripting and plugins with less risk than you would incur using a bunch of resource hogging antivirus programs that can only play catch-up with the constant stream of malware that is produced.

Also, the show is pretty good, despite the fact that the characters are all quite unlikable. I think Shoshanna Shapiro is actually the most attractive of the bunch. She's the only one who doesn't have a bit of that mannish, lantern-jaw quality that I find to be a huge turn-off.

Of the four girls:

Hannah would make the best wife.
Jessa would make the best girlfriend.
Shoshanna would make the best daughter.
Marnie would make the best business partner.

"Hannah would make the best wife.
Jessa would make the best girlfriend.
Shoshanna would make the best daughter.
Marnie would make the best business partner."

If you want to avoid getting HPV, Shoshanna might make a better (and better looking) wife than Hannah. Although Hannah might be a better conversationalist.

Marnie would definitely make the best business partner, unless she decides to screw you over for some reason.

"If you want to avoid getting HPV, Shoshanna might make a better (and better looking) wife than Hannah. Although Hannah might be a better conversationalist."

Being married to Shoshanna would drive most men stark raving insane.

As for the HPV issue, this is one area where the show doesn't quite make sense. Hannah acts as if having HPV is like being infected with Ebola. In fact, something like half of all sexually active women in their 20's have it at some point, and in the overwhelming majority of cases it goes away on its own and causes no ill effects whatsoever.

"As for the HPV issue, this is one area where the show doesn't quite make sense"

That's the joke.

"How to watch Girls for free"

More accurately, how to watch *everything ever made* for free. Really, this is the only option for most movies now that Netflix killed off all the video stores.

But even the biggest rental stores had nowhere near the options of a torrent site.

Always authenticate eztv for all kinds of time sucking tv crap without the fakes.

so much for my mad html skillz...

I would like to point out that if you have updated java,flash,browser and you don't click on random flashy you-won-an-ipad box then you are very safe on torrent sites.

adblock is still very good, and so is noscript. noscript is actually better because it will protect you from drive-by attacks, but it requires more user input.

on torrent sites, the best way to check the torrent is legit is to sort by seeders. the one with the largest number of seeds (for tv show that just came out 1000-10000+ range) is most certainly legit.

also once your computer is compromised, you can never be sure it is safe. you should flatten and rebuild.

and never pirate. it is illegal and "immoral" and wrong.
