I always feel so guilty whenever I stop seeding. I've got a bunch of stuff that's been seeding for over a month.We would love it if people could leave their torrents open as long as possible, for weeks or months even, to keep the files alive.
74 torrents, but not all are active.I always feel so guilty whenever I stop seeding. I've got a bunch of stuff that's been seeding for over a month.
On a side note, about how many torrents does everyone have running at once? Just something I've always been curious about.
It is! I have about 10 max on really rare occasions, usually 1-3 at once. I usually seed until I see that there are enough people seeding the torrent anyway so that my leaving won't have much effect.Thanks for the input guys! I thought having 30 at once was a lot. :lol:
Many hosts do not allow that- specifically shared hosts(Dreamhost, 1and1, HostRocket, etc.). Just throwing a warning out there..I have a 100Mbit connection at my disposal. It's from my web server, I had to pay an extra amount to get it to that 100Mbit, but it's there.
To use that 100Mbit connection for BitTorrent, you could it up using TorrentFlux.
You will need PHP and MySQL. Plus, I would recommend doing this ONLY on a dedicated box that YOU own. You can then point this towards Final Gear's Top Gear RSS torrent feed (We do have one right Viper?) and once the Torrent is downloaded, TorrentFlux takes over and starts up and gives the rest of the clients it's full 100Mbit connection.
(I would recommend capping it to 90Mbit, or you might not be able to connect to your own server to shut it down, or insure that you don't go over your own bandwidth limitation. [My server's bandwidth is around 1.0 TBs]) Make sure you don't go over it, you will be paying though the nose.
