torrents are GREAT way to get bandwidth off of your site,
but they SUCK in that my poopy aDSL connection uploads
at a max of 16kbytes/sec but it downloads at a decent
200kbytes/sec. so BT limits your DL based on your upload
rates..rrrrr....

i'd love maybe a $5-10 fee for say a year's worth of FTP
access

Yeah, none of the videos will be on my server (don't have the bandwidth) and they'll be on a server provided by http://www.hosting.ca/ however, at the moment, there is a user limit (to keep speeds high), so many are getting a denied error. I'm going to see if I can get him to switch to like 100 users or something, but we'd end up with Racing Flix speeds. :(

Yeah, that's fine, as long as they don't cap the BitTorrent packets.
