I bow to your expertise.

It only looks like I'm beating my head on the ground, honest. HELP WITH TORRENTS/SEEDING, PLEASE.

#1: I'm using bit torrent, the latest release, 5.0.1. #2: I've hosted a torrent that has since been deleted from my computer due to inactivity. #3: I've since recreated the torrent using the same file, name, etc. and uploaded the torrent to two torrent hosting sites.

PROBLEM: No one can seem to leach the file, nor does anything show that I'm seeding. What the hell, LJ? Anyone have any clues? (Torrent made with MakeTorrent 2.0, if anyone knows of issues there.)

Oh, and because in the long long ago I used to manage a help desk: YES I've rebooted. YES I've restarted my torrent program. NO I'm not firewalled on this port. I'm drawing down another file, so the program is working in that respect.

I'M TRYING TO GIVE AND THE WORLD WON'T LET ME!! Any advice, tips, etc. using my current software (or you'll really have to convince me to switch to another program) would be GREATLY appreciated. It appears that Azureus did the trick! Stupid BT. not to be confused with Bt. Which I'm probably the only one that would confuse them. [/dork]

Hahaha, I knew what you meant!

I'm looking at Azureus (sp?) - but I had hoped to expidite this matter faster by not having to install new software... Ergh!

Girding up my loins...

Um, only n00bs and dorks use bitcommet. It makes you vomit. It makes your mouth turn green. bitcommet tastes like vasoline.

Guys that play World of Warcraft for 22 hours a day swear by Azureus, and you aren't HONESTLY SAYING that you know more than uber-geeks? DO YOU HAVE CARPAL TUNNEL FROM GAMING, BETH? DO YOU?

I second the notion to use something other than bittorrent itself; I've never successfully made that work. Utorrent's pretty good, so is bitcomet. Play.

Btw -- we cooked on thanksgiving to your spander mix and the sue mix, and while I have known and loved your mixing skills for a while, that? That made cooking PERFECT.

I bow to your awesomeness :)

I've successfully used bittorrent for two years, hence the frustration. I'm thinking changing software may be the key. BAH.

And hooray for music!! It always makes me happy to hear that people like those mixes. So far, only Sue and TKP have told me that... *adds you to the list with stickers next to your name and written in sparkly pens*

They should be bowing to the awesomeness, really. Forget about how well you pick the songs (which you do so, so well) for the subject -- just the *range* of songs, and the fact that you love the Roots as much as I do, and the eighties and ... yeah. Perfection, my darling :)

THE ROOTS ARE THE BEST, JERRY. THE BEST.
D'awwww. :)

In other news, my satellite is hooked up with HD and my TV is so ridiculously huge and WILL FERRELL IS ON MY SCREEN LARGER THAN LIFE and I am so happy about that, I could die. Now, if only CouplingUK came through in HD, I could truly die a happy girl...

Have you sacrificed a goat?

I WORSHIP GOATS, I don't kill them.

Unless the dark lord commands it. (It seems I need to adjust the post - I think I've got it working now...) See? you SCREW the goats. you don't kill them, D.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
