I have the following incomplete torrents - can anyone help me finish these off by seeding these for a while?
These are the names of the torrent folders / bittorrent files:
- "Queen84-09-02.shnf" - originally shared in April, I was never able to complete the download - I have just 3.6Mb.
- "1975.12.24 Hammersmith - complete show" - originally shared in May, again I was unable to complete - I have 2.8% complete.
- "Queen_EarlsCourt_Video" - only a few weeks old I believe, but not going anywhere - I have 15% complete.
- "Queen_OSAKA_82" - from April - I have 44.5%.
- "Queen-in_the_lap_of_the_gods_Rainbow-London-1974" - again from April - I have 65.9%.
- "Hammersmith Odeon_1979_(CBR 2300 with CCE).mpg" - I have almost nothing of this one, but the bit I do have is being seeded!
I'm uploading on most of these, so some other people must be in the same position as I am!
I'm not sure how it works, if it's just a case of people opening their windows to these, or if the tracker needs to be online aswell?
If anyone would be kind enough to share these shows again/ resume the original torrents that would be wonderful. I'm keeping my windows open on everything I've got so hopefully I'm helping somewhere along the way.
Not sure if it's relevant, but I'm using Azureus 184.108.40.206, with 512kps downstream: 128kps upstream.
At 128kbps (the upload speed is generally the limiting factor), you probably don't have enough bandwidth to be on a bunch of torrents simultaneously. I would download only one or two torrents at a time, and stay on them as long as they are still going until they have completed. Also, as a courtesy to others, after your download is completed please keep your torrent open until the amount uploaded approachs what was downloaded.
Thanks Felix Ibex for reseeding Earls Court video.
I always keep my windows open for some time after downloading, usually at least a week, my rule of thumb being to upload the equivalent of the whole show at least 4 times over so that it helps with speading the torrent to everyone else.
Does anyone have the others available?
I'm making progress on Earls Court Video at the moment - thanks Adam (ETA 3d1h according to Azureus) but no joy yet with the others - mainly getting the familiar "Torrent is not authorised for use on this tracker" error.
Royal American Tour 75 - uploaded 533Mb / 2x full show so far.
Rainbow 74 - seeding but no takers at the moment.
Is anyone else here thinking that there are too many torrents coming along every week? I think so because, I'm on broadband and because I haven't started downloading these straight away, I'm a little late to it and I'm having trouble getting these torrents. I think the seeding is being spread too thin with the people downloading all sorts of other torrents. Not to mention those who download and run.
I believe things would be better if there was a slowdown of the amount of torrents being posted.
I've not come across SuperNova before. Just had a quick look - sounds interesting. Has anyone used this much and is it good value?
I agree though - anonymous submission of material generously shared here is far from fair.
