  1. Does anyone else use NordVPN?

    Hey guys it's been a while! So I've had a subscription to NordVPN for almost a year now. I've never had a single issue with speed, connectivity, etc....until now. This past week, I've tried to download a variety of files via p2p. These files (varying in size--some rather small ones @ about 6gb) have yet to finish even after 9 days downloading...which leads me to ask if anyone knows anything that I don't. If you're not aware, Nord has a client gui that will allow you to select your server with ease. It has specialty servers for p2p, etc. Regardless of which server I select--be it a U.S. based close to me, or a server in another part of the world, I get really good speeds for only 20-30 seconds and it drops to a measly 50-80kbps! It will stay this way indefinitely. I have contacted them at least four times now. They directed me thru the process of adding their dns addresses, etc, etc...typical stuff that I had already done a LONG time ago, but I did it again just to be positive. I have contacted my ISP, and since--of course they say "they don't throttle"--I'm at a loss for what to do. It's gotten so bad I'm just avoiding p2p at all costs..which is unfortunate because some content can only be found via p2p. So my tl;dr here is: Does anyone know if they're (Nord) just lying to me and maybe they're having service issues they aren't telling me about? Are the servers they use typical ones that are used by other VPN companies? Maybe it's just traffic that's heavy for some reason? Do you have any tricks I can try? Edit: I am using Windows 10 Pro. I have, of course, reset my modem and router, rebooted my computer, etc. I have already tried some typical Windows command line network resets, e.g--netsh, winsock, etc. I have tried multiple torrent clients.
  2. Chowder (720p Hulu Rips)

    Ah my mistake. Thank you for the correction!
  3. Chowder (720p Hulu Rips)

    In case anyone is looking for this, there's a more consolidated option for those that can download torrents and are on Spleen. They're 720 rips from Hulu: http://www.myspleen.org/details.php?id=28760 I can try and upload them to Mega when I'm finished, if anyone is interested--although it might be a while because I'm on a shitty ISP.
  4. Will be 30 soon. Cartoons have always been a love of mine and my father's. A lot of our time we shared was watching cartoons so it's not only nostalgic but comforting.
  5. HELP ME REMEMBER THIS OLD CARTOON?!

    I don't remember if it was Nick because I've already looked at the list of practically everything Nick did except for all of those shorts that didn't even get enough love to have a fan base. Otherwise I have no clue.
  6. Do you have a piercing?

    I sure would love to have the money for more right now
  7. Do you have a piercing?

    I've had about 32 in my day (counting things being re-done from closing up!). The only things I still have are my nipples, 1-1/8 ear lobes, and a 5/8 septum, and my tongue is just open enough to still get something in there but I don't wear it often anymore.
  8. HELP ME REMEMBER THIS OLD CARTOON?!

    @DabDeity710 Any clues man? I'm going nuts!
  9. Guys.. I have been wracking my brain trying to remember an old cartoon I just had randomly pop in my head but I remember so little of it. I can remember a kid that would always wear a hoodie or possibly a cloak with a hood, I think purple or some kind of maroon? He had a friend that always wore a mask, I think. He had a hideout that was inside the doghouse out back, and when he went in, it was massive, kind of like how Dexter's Lab was. It was 2D animation and I think I remember it looking like the style of animation for the Wild Thornberries or Ahhh! Real Monsters. E: I forgot to specify that I THINK it aired in early 00's but I can't be positive. I also remember, somewhat, the supporting character calling the protagonist "Hoods" like it was his nickname. I have looked at everything from Klasky and Csupo's production lists and I don't see it there so I'm REALLY hoping you fine folks can help me :3
  10. Yu gi Oh; Duel Monsters

    Duel Monsters was the only one I liked. Obviously it was an anime geared toward children but I loved how Pegasus was eccentric and dark and crazy but they sort of made him pityable and lovable because he did it all out of desperation for his love. It's relatable.

    Bro...the saddest thing.
  12. Which Studio Ghibli films are worth watching?

    Castle in the sky is enchanting. I've never enjoyed Lupin for some reason, although I can say that the film was done well. Basically anything they do is going to have to do with a return to the beautiful nature around us and I can relate to that. That's always been my favorite part about Mononoke and Totoro; the simple past, innocence and adventure in the untouched wilderness, and Mononoke with the "we are destroying the Earth and need to revert our shit" trope. Personally, I didn't care for Porco Rosso but still, of course, respect it. I guess I just don't care for anime comedy aspects. Anywho, watching all of it will not be a regret in any way.
