*sheepishly raises hand*

For those of us who've never used Torrent... what do we do?

*sheepishly raises hand*

For those of us who've never used Torrent... what do we do?

1) Download a .torrent client. I like Tixati.

2) If you have SOME of the files that you got from my Dropbox before others(*) deleted it, create a folder called "All the MOVs!" (exact case) somewhere, and put all the MP4s you have in there.

3) Either download the .torrent file I linked, or click this Magnet link to add the .torrent to your client. The .torrent file should be faster to start and has more trackers, but if .torrent files confuse you, just click the Magnet link and it'll work.

4a) When the .torrent client asks where to save the files, point it to the folder ABOVE the one where your "All the MOVs!" folder is. If you created the folder under Videos, point the torrent client to Videos, it will find the "All the MOVs!" folder and continue from there.

4b) If you didn't have any files from my Dropbox, just tell the .torrent client to save wherever you want. It'll start from zero.

4c) If you HAVE some files, but you told the torrent client to save them somewhere ELSE, click the "Stop" button to pause the torrent, copy all your MP4 files in the place where the client is downloading them, and then right-click the .torrent, select Local Files, then Force Re-Check. This will make the torrent client "see" that you put some of the files in there.

5) Once you're done donwloading it, you can leave the torrent going for a while and it will be "Seeding", that is, giving the files to others so they can download it as well.

(*) If, once you were done downloading files from my Dropbox, you MOVED them away, you automatically deleted them for everybody else who was trying to download them from my Dropbox. Three people who shall remain nameless did that, and that's why, if you were on my Dropbox, I can't guarantee you have all the files, even though I put all of them in it.

I will take responsibility for my particular eff-up. I hit "move" when I intended to hit "copy". I also "copied" the files right back as soon as I realized it. To make amends I'm pulling one of my extra computers out, getting her on line, loading Tixati, downloading the torrent and seeding it. That computer will be online 24/7 for the foreseeable future and I've got a fair good internet connection so the download should be good for anyone downloading from me. I generally get a 42mps upload and a 38mps download.

Errr... not sure if I was one of the three - but if I was, I apologize for being a moron.

Downloaded the torrent client, moved over the ones I already had, forced the re-check, and am now at 40% downloaded.

Six hours and counting to go on mine, as of 5pm PST.

I'll be one of the other seeders, but I haven't started yet, so expect that in about 2-3 hours ( ' :

Yeah, I had a power failure so as the only seeder, everything died. I'm back online now.

downloaded everything Leandro put up on Dropbox, merged that with the torrent download, rechecked it and am now downloading the other files. Presently looking at about 14 hours before the torrent is complete.

Downloaded/installed Tixati. Initialization complete, 5% downloaded, Time remaining: 34 hours.

The options tab under the seeding button is set to "Constant seeding", Standby-que if no seeding slots are available (which was the default). I do not know anything about torrent or seeding, does this help or does this setting need changed in some way?

Thanks for all the work on this, it is much appreciated. I would like to help in return if you just let me know what I need to do.

While you're downloading, you're always seeding, so don't worry about it.

Once the torrent is complete, if you are not going to be downloading anything else, it'll seed automatically. Seeing how you've not used torrents before, that's probably what you'll do.

WOW. That was a quick answer. Thanks.

My computer is almost always on (including overnight) so hopefully that will help in the distribution in some way. If there is anything you know of that I can tweak in the program to facilitate, I am all ears....  O_O

After a false-start due to silliness on my part, currently seeding 100%.  Presently 9 are connected and downloading.
This machine will likely be on for several days, so download awaaaaaaaaaay ( ' :

I've started downloading.  I see 2 seeds and 14 peers.

Since we've moved into Netflix viewing time, speed is extremely slow.
