So this past weekend I thought I'd check out this whole bittorrent thing. I read some faq's, downloaded the "official" app from http://www.bittorrent.com, disabled my Windows firewall, opened up ports 6881-6889 on my router and signed up with one of the more popular torrent sites, torrentspy. After poking around for a bit, I thought I'd try to download some tv shows, specifically Nip Tuck. I picked the torrent that seemed to have the best balance between the smallest file size and the most seeds and started the download. 5 hours later, I cancelled the download. My download speed NEVER got above 0 mb/sec and torrent app estimated it would be DAYS to download the file. Any specific tips and tricks for getting a decent download speed (besides what I mentioned above)? Is there a better app than the one I tried using? Is this technology really as hit and miss as it seems? Everything I've read says that its the best file sharing technology, but if it takes days to download a 350mb file (over a cable modem), then I'm gonna have to pass.
