Default DVD Lady

Afternoon folks,

I used to get a DVD woman to come round and sell me some good, some dodgy copies when I lived in the Marina.

Since moving towards Downtown I haven't even had one knock on my door.

Does anyone have a number for one of these women that I can call that serves Business Bay / Downtown?

Thanks

Scampwantslatestreleasesnow.

Are you sure its the latest releases you want? My colleague, who lives in the Marina, had one such lady knock on his door; he said he'd buy 10 if she assisted him with some, er, hand relief. 100 dibs for the 10 dvds, and 50 for the extra service. Brings a whole new meaning to the question, "Were you satisfied with your home delivery service?".

(And yes, it was my colleague.)

Here in AD there's a Chinese girl called Toto who comes round to the office hawking DVD's

She's also rumoured to offer "extras" for a negotiable fee.

"Toto" in West African Pidgin means "pussy"

I never asked or was offered extras....feel left out now.

Definitely just the latest releases. I'm sure when one comes round she'd be told where to go by my mrs if she offered extras.

Collegue who lives in the Ranches has very recently had the service (no not the hand relief) 10 Dhm for 1 12 for 100 Dhm. Myself I'm a tight sweatie and download everything off of bittorrent, using Du broadband and never had a problem :-)

I’ve lived in Downtown for 2+ years and never had a squiff of anyone selling DVD’s (or anything else for that matter), and to the best of my knowledge known of the guys I know who live around there have either.

In my experience the door/reception staff in the downtown buildings tend to be a little more professional than those in the Marina, so I’m guessing the anyone selling anything doesn’t get past them.

Who buys dodgy DVDs when you download better copies?

I hate to think where you are downloading them from. What films are you after? There's a fair chance Mr Meow has them and if you ask nicely he'll transfer them to your own memory stick/hard drive.

Off the likes of Piratebay / UK Nova. Always caused me issues historically.

I just want to flick through loads of films and take 10 every couple of weeks or whatever.

not that I think I should advocate piracy....

kickass torrents has always been good. recently blocked here though but using a vpn will get you better download speeds anyway.

Check the downloader comments on the torrent and also check the files before you download. Never download a zip or RAR file. Also get a decent virus checker.

Concur, check the comments before you download. There are many free virus checkers like AVG out there.

I must be doing something wrong, I always lose about 60% of speed through to Veep.

I'm on Du - 16 mbps broadband. If I torrent without a Veep I'll get a max download of approx 100kb/s (I assume it's throttled) - if I turn on veep to LA or New York it'll regularly be 15 times faster.

We've had this conversation on the board before and seemed to be no definitive answers - but that's my experience....
