    Google up the "unofficial bittorrent client" or the Sharezza version.. i think those allow you to adjust your upload/download ratios

    Yes the Sharezza version does allow you to adjust the ratios.

    Here is the link to dowmload the Sharezza version and people that where having slow download rates have said this version really helps speed there DL rate up greatly.

    Ah well at least trackers will keep record of people and probably start blocking leechers ips!

    Well use both eMule and Bit Torrent Man! Both are great!

    I use both Bit Torrent and Emule. I use Bit Torrent for the new popular files and Emule for the older rare files. Bit Torrent is faster, but it is designed on the fact that you download and you uplaod. So I think messing with the upload speeds to much will definitely effect the download speeds even more.

    I'm new to BitTorent and i have been tryin to download a game.....I tried to resume the download and on all three of the downloads i am trying to get it says:
    "ERROR (time)
    Problem Connecting to tracker - (10061,'Connection Refused')

    Then under the estimated time left it says "connecting to peers"....I've been waiting for a pretty long time now and nothing happened yet....does anyone know what is wrong?

    Thanx

    It may be that the torrent is no longer 'hot' and the files have dissapeared. Espcially with this suprnova thing....

    A good idea might be to visit #suprnova.org on irc.irchat.tv to get the latest torrents on their bots

    Is there any way to download songs without having to download the whole album using Bit Torrent?

    they worked......i figured out that it was because of the suprnova.org thing.

    Depending on how many seeders there are and how new the file is I get between 200-300 k/s through BT. If you are behind routers or firewalls it slows this down. I'm on a T1 line at college.
