I was just wondering what was the preferred bit torrent. I've used a couple so far, ABC was my last one, but now I'm trying out the Bitlord, I'm not sure what the difference in them is besides their appearance. Anyone have any input?, it would be greatly appreciated. Also, how many shows can you download at the same time? Is it best to do one at a time? Thanks!

I use "burst!", it's a little funky when you start it up because most of the time it starts other seeds I've done in the past that I don't want to seed at the time, so I have to close them. I don't know if it's me or the software, but it's not annoying enough for me to do anything about it.

I admit I sometimes download two at a time, but it depends completely on the situation. Like when it's two shows with only a couple of seeders, like to increase my chances of getting one of them. LOL. That's really the only time for me, because if I'm just doing one, it down and uploads both, faster. Your upload bandwidth contributes to your DL bandwidth in most situations.

I also use BitTornado.
Azureus is supposed to be quite popular (though I think DaD doesn't allow the newest version).

I still use the original -- BTGUI. I see no reason to change.

I download 2-3 shows at a time without much problem. It depends on what you want to do with your PC while your downloading. If I have 4-5 shows going it slows down my net surfing. Other apps run fine. I have a Dell with 512 megs of memory and a 2.66 GHz Pentium 4 processor. So it can multi-task pretty well. Sure wish I had a gig of memory. Uploads are capped by Road Runner at 43 Kb/s. I think that's plenty as I have had downloads in excess of 500 Kb/s (lots of seeders -- it's not the norm).
