I buy used pc games on eBay.

Even without CD key.

Cause its dirt cheap.

Then I go to and grab the patched executable so it bypasses the need for online.

For games that require steam, you can download the nosteam dll you swap the nosteam "steam.dll" with the original and now enjoy game without needing steam.

And download another dll that redirects multiplayer so you can play online using free shards


FBI Informant: Ray Bradbury's Sci-fi Written To Induce Communistic Mass Hysteria 282

v3rgEz writes: The FBI followed Ray Bradbury's career very closely, in part because an informant warned them that his writing was not enjoyable fantasy, but rather tantamount to psychological warfare. "The general aim of these science fiction writers is to frighten the people into a state of paralysis or psychological incompetence bordering on hysteria," the informant warned. "Which would make it very possible to conduct a Third World War in which the American people would believe could not be won since their morale had seriously been destroyed."

While I use the adblock plugin on Firefox, I do have automated blocklist downloaded on my router. It's nice having ad blocking at the router, so when I'm on my tablet I don't get any ads on web or games. :-P

But apk guy cracks me up, I've seen him tagging just about every article remotely related to networking with his huge rant about hosts file for at least the last 2 years, if not longer.

It's like Slashdot's own 'phantom of the opera'

You can't win

I had a YouTube video removed over similar issue.

I filed counter claim. I got served by some law office , I don't have money for lawyer, I tossed their paperwork in trash, I kept filing counter claims, I got a court date in California, but I'm in Ga. :-P

I just ignored them, eventually YouTube got tired of taking down then restoring then taking down then restoring so they deleted and gave a strike on my account which a strike bans you from monetizing for 1 year.

Oh well

instant content, categorized with the torrent plugin full drm free content

and best of all AD FREE! No shitty spam tv advertisings.

Funny when 1 hour tv shows without ads are only 30 mins

i got rid of spam tv back in 2001.

been a ftp/newsgroup/dcc/rapidleech/torrent user since on all my tv's, tablet, etc.

plus with dd-wrt firmware on router I installed adblocklist that blocks all ads online for all my devices including it blocks ads on mobile apps
