    Nathan that is FANTASTIC!!! I don't have to troll all over the Net, risking bombarded with Viagra ads or Chinese ads that have me scratching my head.

    Nicely done!

    And where do you think these came from? Credit as to the source is given in the post.

    I only do this since many people are not comfortable with torrents and some ISPs are now shaping traffic to prevent or provide very low priority to torrent traffic.

    And so is everybody else's bandwidth.

    But as I always tell my networking guy in the office, "bandwidth is there to be used AND abused" :D

    Nah. I'm very mindful of the office bandwidth. I've got them all on a portable HDD.

    Besides, our office network is f-ed up. Sitting here in Bellevue, WA, our external access is backhauled to Helsinki, Finland, before it actually hits the "intarwebz". We really want to get a local fiber connection instead.

    Yeah, macs and some avi's are not good friends. See Playing AVI and DivX files for solutions.

    There is a version of VLC that is available for Mac users.....VideoLAN - VLC media player for Mac OS X

    Thanks again Nathan, didn't mean to imply there was a better source just wanted folks to know they could actually get the whole seasons packaged together and available w/o using your bandwidth.
