Title: Getting the "How Evolution is Scientific" DVD
Post by: spiralofhope on February 14, 2012, 11:23:51 AM
Two DVDs are listed in the store:

Neither is in the lulu catalogue:

http://www.lulu.com/content/digital-video-disc/how-evolution-is-scientific---blu-ray/7163053

I tried downloading the torrents, but neither is seeded.

Shane, if you're still seeding these.  Could you edit the trackers and make sure you're using live trackers.  the Pirate Bay took down their trackers a long time ago, and are relying on Trackerless DHT now.  Switching to open trackers may help.

udp://tracker.openbittorrent.com:80/announce
udp://tracker.openbittorrent.com:80
udp://tracker.istole.it:80

Alternately, it's quite possible that the only seeders are behind firewalls, and so am I and we can't connect.

If all else fails, I wonder if I could get the blu ray edition carved up and send via:

Man, I hate Lulu's video section. Doing books with them has been great but DVDs has been nothing but a nightmare. I don't even see them in my projects list anymore!

As for the torrents, I see seeders on the openbittorrent.com tracker, so I don't know why they wouldn't be visible to you. DHT is also active. I've made sure my seeds are force-started, and my port is publicly open, so you should at least be able to get to me.

OK, something went kablooey with the Blu-Ray torrent (no idea what, no one ever tells me when these things happen), so I recreated it. Try this magnet link: magnet:?xt=urn:btih:81E4E729F1E12093FB84EE6FC727C4C53DEA1464&dn=How.Evolution.Is.Scientific.Blu-Ray.iso&tr=udp%3a//tracker.openbittorrent.com%3a80/announce (http://magnet:?xt=urn:btih:81E4E729F1E12093FB84EE6FC727C4C53DEA1464&dn=How.Evolution.Is.Scientific.Blu-Ray.iso&tr=udp%3a//tracker.openbittorrent.com%3a80/announce)

Sorry to hear about lulu.  Downloading a torrent is a good alternative for me.

Clicking the magnet link from the forums won't work because it prepends http:// to them.  Copying-and-pasting didn't work because my browser will try to use a default search engine.  Opening a URL directly with my BitTorrent client didn't work.  I ended up just hand making an html file, pointing my browser at it and clicking it.  Yay technology!

Well I've connected to the updated Blu Ray torrent and it's starting the download.

Don't forget to post comments in your older torrents referencing the updated Blu Ray torrent.


Thanks for your effort..

No problem. There's a couple more downloaders for the new torrent, so I put it in Initial Seeding mode so it'll go out faster. I just wish I could upload faster.

Does anyone know if this is available through any streaming sites?
