Re: Ultra-High-Quality Monthly Update Video Torrents

Big thanks to all the seeders! Are earlier updates available in high quality or youtube quality? I could fetch them from youtube I guess, but BitTorrent is so much better. I've been seeding all for over 2 years. However, all of the original trackers seem to be offline or blocked, so I guess that my...
