    btjunkie slow download

    I have been using btjunkie a lot lately and have downloaded a ton of stuff which has done so at speed. A 1gb file took only a couple of hour max. However, recently anything i download from here is terribly slow at 5kbs, sometimes 0.4kbs.

    Is there a reason for this? My friend seems to think it's because i'm not seeding.

    isohunt is fine, so how do a rectify the speeds with bt?

    Thanks

    btjunkie is simply a tracker search engine .

    clue to your problem is the number of seeds and peers the torrent your downloading has .

    Why don't you seed? You don't seed for others and then complain about slow downloads, The irony.

    OK smart ass! Let me re-word it. As i'm not familiar with what seeding was or is. My friend explianed that because i delete the file after downloading, this could be the issue as it isn't seeding.

    If you download a torrent, then you should always at least re-seed it to a ratio of 2.0.

    Common decency dictates you should seed. Only leech scum don't

    You don't need to do anything to seed, just don't delete the torrent when your d/l has finished.

    Your speed issues will be related to the peers you're connected to. Nothing else (unless you have a static IP and you've been blacklisted for not seeding).
    "Slavery is the daughter of darkness; an ignorant people is the blind instrument of its own destruction; ambition and intrigue take advantage of the credulity and inexperience of men who have no political, economic or civil knowledge. They mistake pure illusion for reality, license for freedom, treason for patriotism, vengeance for justice."-Simón Bolívar
