Hi All

This Bit Torrent stuff is crap!!

I have been downloading a 1.66GB zip file since Tuesday, the dam thing has 
been on all day and all night the average speed has been 3KB the best 
download I've seen so far has been 9KB

From what I can see, if I understand it correct I'm getting the download from 
one peer only and the whole of Asia is getting it from me. I've tried 
limiting the upload rate as I don't see why everyone should get it faster 
from me when its taking so long for me to get it!

I limited it to 2KB upload but Ive seen the bloody thing jump to 5KB, so far I 
have 87.8% with 208MB remaining.

I thought this Bit Torrent stuff was supposed to be quicker and kinder? I mean 
for gods sake 'Torrent' my arse I'd have been quicker using FTP

I was gonna play with the download last night, no chance, OK I thought its at 
78% it should be done for Friday morning (Today), you must be kidding so I 
wont be playing with it tonight or Saturday or Sunday I just hope its done by 

As soon as its finished guess whats getting un-installed
