Been a few days since I have seen it connect, and one of the torrents is a very popular one that people have been awaiting for weeks.

Just regular peers connecting which is going so slow.

I connect to the cache for most new anime episodes I download that have been around for longer than a day and are quite popular.

Hmm, things have completed during the day ok. Im wondering if the cache can only handle a single machine on the connection torrenting as my friend who has moved has left a machine here to download on while he is sorting stuff out with the move.

Yep that's the same cache that comes up for me also (is there only 1??). It seems to be there for most things.

I was connected to the cache the other day, but unusually it was only contributing about 5KB/s to the pool. Usually I can max my line on the cache alone, let alone other over-seas seeders.

if using Utorrent most people dont go past version 2.2.1 as this was the last version before they started to change things and made it worse . google it and you will see why.




Common sense is not as common as you think.

I think they also tried to make a premium version.  People were criticizing them for it.  Most of their clientele download uTorrent so they don't have to pay :D

I'm aware of this but also a little lazy and incredibly OCD about ensuring everything is running the latest version, Bar this latest issue I have no real complaints about the newer versions and even like a few of the newer updates.
