Bittorrent

Recommended Posts

I'm new to the bittorrent thing, I hear it's the wave of the future, BUT,

 

I can't figure out what the fuck to do with it.

 

1) I have anatomic p2p, I don't know how to use it.

 

2) I keep getting slowwww downloads and it slows my computer way down.

 

3) I can't find any good porn.

 

YEEEEP!

im also new to the torrent thing, few things i have learned are,

 

If you download porn i have a problem with a license thing i think the videos are encrypted cos they play all funny unless ure licensed (i dont want a license for porn :S)

 

Secondly if you download it will begin to get faster as it goes on.

 

 

i use torrentspy.com it tells you how good the link is as well the more full the bar is themore chance you got of a good download really

 

Good luck Milton

Check your port as well- I believe Soulseek (the best p2p music host IMO) uses port 15034 on my computer. Set your download limit to one- that will also help things to move along, as will not running programs that require a lot of memory. I normally keep my virus scan on when I'm DL'ing to be on the safe side, even though it slows down the entire works, but fuck it. Running MS Office or Abobe anything (other than Acrobat) will make things crrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeeeeep. Also, you may want to do a virus scan twice a week just to make sure you haven't gotten burnt. I've never had a problem, but I am vigilant when it comes to what I DL, too....I ONLY get mp3 files. Anyhing else with a different extention gets deleted right away.

 

That might speed things up, and help you out a little.

since I discovered torrents, I've gotten all the adobes, other software, video editing shit, quick time pro, movies etc etc so awesome but...

 

when I finish dl'ing, I unzip it to a folder and then run a virus scan just to be safe before I open it...I caught a few things so far...

Im good with the bittorrent thing but at the same time there is something i dont understand. I can be dling from like 20 people and they are all sharing with me at like 1kbs. But when i start to upload to people im cranking out like 27kbs. Why doesnt everyone share at this rate?

I think it has to do with the number of people in the torrent.

 

I need to reformat my comp to deal w/some of the porting issues that go along w/bittorrent. Same thing happened to me. One time, it took me seven hours to DL a 90 minute movie at <3kbs.

 

I guess the concept behind the torrent is that multiple users download different parts of the file/app as you need them....so, logic dictates that the more people that send you packets of data, the faster the DL will be.

im starting to feel weird because i dont even know what a torrent is.....

 

 

actually, that could be a good thing

 

 

A torrent is a very small file... that merely points a program like bit comet in the right direction to find the file you want.... so you download a torrent and it's kinda like a digital roadmap, so to speak.... and then your program opens it, finds the file, and downloads it. Very simple, fast, and reliable.

One more question:

 

I've downloaded a game from bittorent. What do I do with it. I mean, it's 2 gigs, so I probably want to put it on CD somehow right? But I don't know exactly how to go about doing that and whatever. Plus, when I'm playing it akses me to put in the CD and I don't have a CD. Word

On my mac, on bittorrent, the downloads dont actually download, they just sit there, nothing. Any ideas?

You need to get a program called antiblaxx, go search for it, I don't know how it works but I know that's what you need.... also Alcohol 120% is another program you will need. Good luck.

That's odd..the Mac version of BitTorrent is one of the easiest to use.Maybe you

have an outdated version? Or maybe you're trying older torrents with no seeders?

 

And a BIIIG bump for Empornium.us been using it for just about 2 years..it rules.
