BlankHello, I have installed this and went to a site to try it out. I must be missing something with jfw in the settings screen because I can't seem to change my upload/download rates. A file I tried to download said that I had 35 days time remaining for a download? Is this right? or, is jfw not focussing on a settings button? Thanks...Keith ----- Original Message ----- From: chevelle To: jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Saturday, June 25, 2005 3:29 PM Subject: Re: Bit torrent? Hi torrents are used to download big filees from otheer people. It doesn't work quite like kazaa and otheer per to per sharing programs. What happens is you are getting bits of a file from other people who are downloading thee same thing. So, the more people you have downloading the same file as you, the faster you can get the file. Also while you are downloading a file someone else is getting bits of the file from your system as well. You use bit torrent program to download these files. All you havee to do is install the program bit torrent. Then you find torrent sites that have trackers to connect to in order to download thesee files. Example, I went on a site, and was ablee to find Star wars Revenge of thee Sith. I downloaded it, and played it using the vlc software. You can go to bit torrent. Oops You can go to www.bittorrent.com to get the program. Jaws speaks all the install prompts. Once thee program is installed, you don't need to do anything else with that program, just find torrent sites to go to. ----- Original Message ----- From: Chris Chaffin To: jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Saturday, June 25, 2005 4:15 PM Subject: Bit torrent?
