Thread: I should really know this but i don't!!

  1. #1
    Hey guys,

    i really should know this by now after a few years in the torrents scene, but really i don't!! So you can fall over laughing if you wish but here goes!

    What is a seedbox?
    Do i need a seedbox?
    Why should i get a seedbox?
    Which seedbox do i need?

    I would have answered these questions using search but for some reason the search just freezes on me right now!!

    no worries m8, and seeing your connection, your download really outnumbers your upload so think about a seedbox IF you can and are willing to pay for it (I am not).

    thanks for that link man!! Now i see how these guys seed the shit out of torrents!! So reallisticly if my goal was to just fix my ratios i'd only really need to use a seedbox once in a while correct? Are there any sort of like shared programs where maybe 2 or 3 people all chip in to pay for a seedbox and make use of it? If there is can you name a few and how they work?

    Why share? There are several companies listed on that offer small packages for just a week or a month for maybe 5 to 10 bucks.

    Personally, I have 2 dedicated servers running to keep up on the private tracker I'm on. This way I can maintain a good ratio every single day of the year and enough online storage & speed to serve the peeps leeching there. I think the total bandwidth on that tracker (just 8000 members) coming from staff-seedboxes is around 2Gbit or 256MB/s. You can imagine you won't be able to keep a nice ratio if you're uploading on your Virgin-account with about 80KB/s.
