hiya, how are you doing? good, glad to hear it.
I have recently started using bittorrent (shadows client) and have had some mixed results, the first time i used it i dl'ed something from filesoup and my speed was good after the first couple of hours -started at about 10k/s and finished at about 50k/s which i was very happy with, but when i got something from supanova i was connected for over 24 hours and uploaded over 200 meg but only downloaded about 20 meg yet some of the peers where downloading in excess 100k/s now i understand that your d/l speed is proportional to your upload but my share rating was over 10. then i thought it was because i havent seeded so i went back to filesoup where i have seeded about three times the size of the original file i d/led and my upload and d/l speeds were about 2k/s. i dont mind leaving a torrent window open for as long as it takes to d/l and then seed but this is ridiculous, a 1.5 gb file from supanova is going to take nearly 2000 HOURS!! any advice would be very welcome.oh yeah, nearly forgot, what does manual and external announce mean? cheers.
