Two different animals. Joox hosts their files on a server and torrents are completely reliant on the number of seeders and leechers on the tracker you have chosen. Each seeder and leecher sends you a little piece of the movie at between 1-10kbps and the speed you end up with is determined by how many of them there are. This is why it is so important that you spend some time searching for the movie you want at all the various torrent sites until you find the one with the highest numbers.
Wolf, that's not what peer guardian does lol. It blocks your computer from connecting to know Ips from several types of anti piracy coporations. If you use IRC to download everything, you don't ever have to worry about being caught.
Well not exactly. I have been using PG for many years, and now PG2, and what it actually does is blocks incoming TCP/IP connections from entering your computer AFTER they have acquired your IP. It works by compiling lists of IP's from RIAA watchdog groups and blocks any IP on the list from entering your computer to look for pirated material. It also blocks them from verifying that your computer is actually online and what you have been downloading, because all they receive is a "failure to connect" notice. I have been a contributing member of phoenix/meth labs since the beginning and some of my design ideas are implemented in PG2.
It is not a failsafe method, if they really want to investigate you they can and will, but it is far better than using nothing at all. By the way, the RIAA just won in court the right to place "IP loggers" on almost all of the large torrent sites. As soon as you log on to the site, your IP is recorded. They don't have the cash to convict the average "small-fries", but are concentrating on users that download hundreds of titles a day and show signs consistent with being a commercial pirate.
