They use two different trackers, tracker.prq.to for 2005-11 and 2005-12, conspiracycentral.net for all the others. The two that use tracker.prq.to work OK for me, but I get random timeouts on the conspiracycentral.net ones while seeding them.

CEB has updated all the torrents to new trackers.  We should be good to go.  FTL now recommends Utorrent:  http://utorrent.com

In the past few months, I've tried at least four torrent clients, bittorrent, bitcomet, one I cant remember, and finally settled on Azureus, which seems to work best for me.  (also limewire, which is a piece of shit, I dont even count it among the list)

I like Azureus for two reasons, it seems to be more stable and doesnt suck down all your ram causing a crash or a half-crash, where everything is just fucked for a few minutes until it catches its breath.(I've found Firefox more gentle on simultanius web surfing/torrent loading, as opposed to IE) 

Two, people sometimes block clients based on reasons I dont fully understand, it seems some clients announce themselves in a hacker method, or they unfairly seed to other people who use the same client.  Apparently, Azuerus doesnt do that, and is accepted by the web-geek community, thus no blocking.

Opinions, comments ?  UTorrent users want to chime in on the stability issue, or the blocking ?

I belong to several private trackers and they've all banned uTorrent for the reasons described. Azereus does have some issues (its java based and can hog your ram at times) but overall it is my favorite and has alot of 3rd party plugins available to extend its functionality.

Ya, I didnt mean to suggest Azereus was flawless by any means.  It does the ram hog thing once in a while, but it recovers, unlike Bittorrent acted (for me).  I'm strictly amateur, so I'm behind the learning curve.  The bittorrent crashes surprised me, cause I heard it was pretty good, due to its size, and the fact they are the "origional creators" (or so they claim).  I'm pretty sure it was bittorrent, their logo is a black ball.  I might not have had Bittorrent configured properly.

The latest versions of BitTorrent are pretty conservative in their usage of RAM and other such resources. I've never actually liked any other BT client than the original.

How much RAM does it take up? I guess I've had a few problems in the past and never thought that they might be memory-related. Generally, I've had good performance since I started using Azureus, and I typically leave it running for a long time.

I dont know the specifics of ram usage, I just know it becomes unstable when you multitask (launch IE while doing a download, and seeding, for example)  It would probably help if I defrag'd and freed up a few gigs of memory from old useless shit.  Sometimes if I have AOL up (I keep it for the kids, and mail, surf with firefox) AOL blows goats.  AOL is a blight on humanity.

I think it may have more to do with the multitasking thing. I have 2G of RAM. XP still does paging, but it shouldn't be that much. And Java is notorious for requiring different versions for different programs, or vice versa. Still, Azureous performs well and doesn't usually cause problems for me.

OK, looks like a ps output, but not a format I'm familiar with. Which column is RAM?

RSS is resident set size (what's in RAM); everything else is shared libraries, etc., not loaded up.

may torrent:
01.07.2006 19:50:38 - Bad data from tracker - bad bencoded data
but then proceeded to download. slowly.
april torrent:
01.07.2006 19:55:05 - Bad data from tracker - bad bencoded data
01.07.2006 19:56:36 - Rejected by tracker - need info_hash
and has not proceeded to dl.

seems my client (ABC, not very good) cant get stuff from the main seeder/tracker/whatever but is able to connect to one or more of the other people downloading the same file ?

Either theres something wrong with the latest torrents / the tracker, or i should change client :P

Edit: speed skyrocketed when more users came online ^_^ - all done

I'm trying to constantly share all of these torrents now, and I have a 9MB cable connection.

The torrent links are cut off at August 2005. I got a folder of July 2005 shows from a torrent that I listen to whilst playing games.
