Filesharing with Bittorrent

Interested in finding out more about bittorrent but you don't know where to start? This tip comes passed along to me from (e:shawnr). Gettign started with bittorrent is east with the azureus client which is pretty easy to use and comes in wndows, linux, and mac os x flavors. However, it does require java which you most likely already have, if not you can get it from the azureus link.

[size=m]How do I get started?[/size]
1. Download java JRE and install it if you don't have it. You can get it at the Azureus site

2. Download the azureus client for your operating system. Same above

3. Go to the web and type whatever you want to download plus the word torrent into your search engine. Links to torrent sites will come up. WHen you find what you are looking for download the .torrent file and open it with azureus. It will start downloading to your hardrive.

4. You can also share your own video, art, whatever using bitorrent. Maybe (e:shawnr) can do a tutorial on that.

Here are some sites where you can search for torrent files.
Pirate Bay -
Bogaa -
Seedler -

[size=m]How does it work?[/size]

With BitTorrent, files are broken into smaller fragments, typically a quarter of a megabyte each. As the fragments are distributed to the peers in a random order, they can be reassembled on a requesting machine. Each peer takes advantage of the best connections to the missing pieces while providing an upload connection to the pieces it already has. This scheme has proven particularly adept in trading large files such as videos and software source code. Quoted from: BitTorrent - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Talk about swiftness. I am getting sometimes upwards of 700k per sec downloading suse 9.3, same with many other programs and files

OS X on PC

In case anyone missed this news, OS X is being ported to PC hardware by apple. A bunch of you wrote about this a whiole back. It turns out that people have alread hacked the OS to run on non-apple PCs now. In fact there is a whole wiki with directions and information about getting this up and running . There are a bunch of mehtods for install including one for dual boot.

I know that this is gogin to make (e:uncutsaniflush) crazy unless he has already done it!!

Here is a blog with more instructions, some imagery and video of it running on vaio laptop.
