View Full Version : Computors - Huh!

Why is it my PC "Chooses" which site to upload to above another when seeding. Mine likes "The demon" (where ratio`s dont count ) more than here, and as for Dime, I still haven`t got a 1-1 ratio after 3 yrs!

Your PC isn't choosing anything. It all comes down to what sort of pipe other people, and you, have, both for u/loads and d/loads.
If you have good speed then it will move quicker. If you have a few with good speed it will move even more quicker (bad grammar).

I come across this problem all the time at different sites.

Because the Demon has more traffic on a constant...

You can join or start a seed, leave it on 24/7 @<hidden> demon, & you'll get 2000 people who latch onto that seed in a week. On dime, here & other specific torrents, you are lucky to get in the hundreds over a week's time 24/7...

Of course, the other differences are that, while you get such large numbers, you also get less quality. You'll get more hit & runners @<hidden> demon/pirate & you'll find a mish mash of files, ranging in various qualities. Places like here, you'll get more people who will try & seed for a 1:1 ratio & you know that for the most part quality is assured...

Hi Malcolm, this might help. Cap the upload speed of the torrents you're referring to. You can also change the number of upload slots a torrent is using or change the priority level. Use a 'normal' client like uTorrent, Vuze, or Transmission, keep your PC (torrent client) running for as long as possible and last but not least, make sure you're not firewalled.
