Bit Torrent

Author: Cool Snoops | Filed under: File Sharing, Mac

Bit Torrent has become the most popular way to share files, whether they be small or very large. It’s great as long as you can get decent speeds. Unfortunately, speeds can never be guaranteed. One day you can get 50k, while the next you can barely scrape out 1k. Just make sure there are lots of seeders if you want fast speeds. I recommend limiting your upload speeds. You decide how much depending on your connection, but I limit mine to 30KB globally if I’m doing other stuff on the net that requires bandwidth. I also limit my global connections to 20. That will prevent your connection from being overloaded and not being able to download anything. My favorite application is Transmission because it doesn’t hog your computer’s resources. If you are looking for torrents, then check out the links to the right. The key is to be patient. If you haven’t learned that by now, then just forget about file sharing…
