Bit Torrent

Thanks to davegrrr, I've become a big fan of Bit Torrent. It came about after I missed a favorite program last Monday due to too many conflicts with TiVo. In this case, 24 (season finale). So, I finally installed the software (first Bit Torrent and later went to Azureus) and found the last two episodes I was looking for.

After some more browsing I found one of my favorite shows, Fifth Gear (UK show)! SpeedTV used to carry it, but stopped over a year ago. So, I've been happily catching up on last season and watching the current season soon. They're all large AVI's, so I just load up VLC on the PowerBook, hook-up the s-video connection to the TV and I have my shows in fairly decent quality.

It's very cool looking at how bit torrent clients, peers, seeds, trackers and all of this stuff on the network comes together to distribute such huge files rather efficiently. It tries my patience (downloads of some programs can take days), but learning to adapt.
