I dunno - It has been a bit more than an hour and a half and I've gotten three
of the iso's downloaded. I'm just about to start on iso4 and five.

go figure.


I know a lot of people who have given up on the Torrent system.
Myself included. This, despite optimising the uploads and downloads
as stated. I now tend to wait a few weeks and then download via good
old fashioned ftp. I leave it those few weeks so as not to overload
any servers.

Yes, I have tried the Torrents after a couple of weeks or so too.
Supposedly there are more seeds then.....hmmmm, not here there

I am only human, please forgive me if I make a mistake it is not deliberate.
PLEASE DON'T drink and drive it's not clever, it's just stupid.
