Mises torrents 4.0 available

March 27, 2012 by

As part of our effort to share Austrian Economics with the world, we announced the first version of the Mises.org torrents in 2009, 2.0 in 2010, and 3.0 in 2011.  These torrents allow you to download the content on Mises.org for offline reading and sharing.

Version 4.0 is now available in a new user-friendly format. We have completely re-organized the files and focused on only including the books and media featured on the website. In addition to the books and media themselves, the torrent now includes links to purchase physical version of books and to the latest version of the file on Mises.org. Download them here: books (8.6) GB, media: (114 GB), and journals (4.3GB)

You will need a bittorrent client such as uTorrent if you don’t already have one to open these links.

Update:  the 2013 books and media torrents are available.

I am curious to know if the “re-organization of the files” is what has disabled the RSS feeds for media such as the “Audio Mises Daily” which used to be:

“http://mises.org/Feeds/media.ashx?categoryid=108″

..but now the link shows (while also no longer working in my podcatcher program):

“http://mises.org/Feed/Media/?categoryid=108″

Any assistance/information on how to resolve this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Much thanks.

Thanks for reporting the problem – it is fixed.

FYI the ‘torrent’ file format is trying to be ‘phased out’ by some due to the reoccurring Internet censorship threats. Magnet Links are a ‘safer’ and more decentralized way of doing things.
The .torrent file format can be blocked by some providers and Magnet Links keep working even if the tracker goes down.

Thanks for making it easy to DL! I’ll be seeding this for a long time.

Thank you for fixing the problem I reported earlier.

Now that I’ve returned home from work & have had a chance to start downloading the new .torrent’s, I saw how you’ve done such an amazing job organizing all of the content.

You are amazing and wonderful.

The knowledge Mises.org shares will continue to make this world a much better & more free place to live.

Thank you Thank you THANK YOU.

Respectfully,
~Cody

Thanks, David!

I’m curious what and how much has been left out of 4.0. Could you elaborate?

David Veksler March 27, 2012 at 9:06 pm

The media includes 114GB out of 274GB out of 8.6GB out of 9.8GB for books.

In order to provide the nicely organized torrents, I had to rely on the information in the Mises.org database. Unfortunately over the last 16 years, various files have become “orphaned” – they were uploaded but not added to the document database or not linked at all. Hopefully someone will eventually go through these files and figure out what to do with them.

Thanks, David.

It does look like the PDF Journals have been left out of the 4.0 torrent. When I have more time I can compare torrent 4.0 with 3.0 (which I downloaded last fall) to see what other portions of content were not included.

So for anyone looking for content beyond the books & audio/video media, I would suggest downloading the 274GB 3.0 torrent.

The new organization of the 4.0 torrent though is still fantastic for browsing.

This just what I have been waiting for!

You should create a torrent based upon the file type so I can download all available books in the epub format.

Thanks.

Ryan April 5, 2012 at 5:53 pm

thanks for this! I just finished downloading the media a couple days ago. Can I get permission to upload to youtube?

Erik April 5, 2012 at 9:03 pm

I can’t seem to pull the Journals torrent. I get an HTTP 406 – Not Acceptable error.

(tried with Firefox, Chrome, IE, … even wget)

Our media is Creative Commons licensed so you don’t need to ask as long as you link back to the source.

This is absolutely magnificent. Thank you.

Raymond Embry April 10, 2012 at 4:44 pm

This is fantastic! Thank you for providing this.

The Media download is quite large. Perhaps it would be better to break it down further to separate audio and video.
