It's interesting to note in a purely hypothetical manner of course that today is the last chance that anyone would have to download anything they are legally entitled to from a certain UK television tracker

On September 1st, the torrent section of the website will be deactivate

RIP TheBox.
It's been very useful over the years.
I have a current ratio of 1.33 so I'd better get downloading

The mods there were a pretty stuck up bunch !

A few years ago I uploaded the 1979 Xmas TOTP recorded off air on my newly acquired Panasonic NV-8600B VHS VCR - and it was still very good quality after 30 years on a VHS tape. I have an excerpt on YouTube ...

The mods instantly deleted my upload saying it was a duplicate - it wasn't - the other copy was an inferior UKGold re-transmission. When I dared to challenge their decision - they summarily deleted my account.

I had an account on there which was blocked due to the extremely strict "no proxies" rule. I was trying an add-on
called FoxyProxy in SeaMonkey, specifically to access US based geo-IP blocked video streams on CBS.com
and Hulu. I forgot it was installed until they blocked my account due to unauthorised use of proxy servers.
