    Look like ill b one of the first for torrents only 3-4 at 100% pleaz seed, its only fair it reduces hak5 costs if they can save bandwith from the direct ftp download, plus it a lot faster 🙂

    I am using FireFox 1.5, is this just my browser or is anybody else getting this issue.

    Great episode. But, what’s the deal with the counters on the scavenger hunt pages? It seems that there should be a steady decrease in the number of visits as one progresses, but some of the later pages had higher counts than the earlier ones.

    I would use the poll, but it didn’t have this option for favourite segment: Wess hitting his elbow on the podium. 🙂 That was great!

    The stuff you guys sacrifice for internet TV! Blood, sweat, tears, and funny bones.

  • Matt

    LOL! Wess hittin his elbow was hilarious! I honestly watched it over and over and laughed my ass off each time. Anyways, great show guys! Keep up the funny Microshaft commercials and awesome segments. hak.5 is one of the greatest IPTV shows I have ever seen, it has opened up my range of knowledge and made me thirst for more. Thanks for bein awesome!


  • Wess
