    Re: Torrent

    First, some info on what bittorrents actually are: BitTorrent (protocol) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    You need two things:

    1. A bittorrent client, I personally use the official client, but there are others, and its really a preference. Stay away from bitcomet though, bad bad joo joo.

    2. A website to get torrents off of that have the stuff you're looking for. Up until this point, bittorrents are legal, as its just a means of transferring files between computers efficiently. Its the stuff you're transfering that is questionable (IE Piracy). I will not give, nor should you ask for a torrent site on AO. This is where you have to go out on your own and find a torrent site for you to use, trust me, there's a lot of them out there.

    uTorrent is the best torrent client out there to use.

    ĀµTorrent - a (very) tiny BitTorrent client

    THE RULES!

    I'm on my grind in search to find whats on my mind, its one of a kind!

    Re: Torrent

    I honestly never did much research on what client to use, but I heard good things about uTorrent and have been using it for almost 2 years now, I can attest to its quality.
