i got bittorrent to work, which entailed piercing two firewalls. me and iptables should really become better friends, but we're definitely closer than last time i tried this.

i like the concept of bittorrent -- both the load distribution, and its tit for tat speed adjustment (if you don't share, your download speed will suck) are pretty good ideas for p2p services. i also found a much better client than last time -- azureus packs lots of power, and how can one not like a program named after the blue poison dart frog?

i have a big hardon for p2p -- the idea of decentralised sharing of stuff just really works for me. i am sitting here, watching 80% of my upload bandwidth being used, and it makes me happier than the fact that i am finally sustaining a pretty good download speed too. i never leech on p2p networks; the whole point for me is to share stuff i like with other people who might also like it.

so now i have a collection of 1980's abandonware games, and a couple of scanlations for manga i bought in japanese. once i come up for air from cleaning images, that'll be fun to dig into.

Got the torrent file. Not sure if anyone's seeding right now, but that's not your fault. Thanks!

i just forced it to seed again since it had dropped down in the queue, but have to cap my upload speed at 48kB/s, or i can't get any work done. i see two people jumped on it right away; this seems a really popular torrent (my share ratio is at 7.5 even with that low an upload speed).
