Re: Does Downloading one song hurt your ratio?

How's that work? If I DL a 25mb file, or whatever size, and seed it until what I've DL has been UL from me, my ration would be 1.0, right?
Shouldn't it be 1 for 1 or is this some weird math I don't understand?
No weird science here. I guess that what Lynne meant to say is that happydog500 has a current ratio of 1.98, so in order to keep that ratio of 1.98 he has to seed 1.98x25mb (or almost 50 mb). If one has a ratio of 1.0 and one wants to maintain that ratio, it would be enough to seed the amount of data downloaded (in this example that would be 25mb).
Dubbin' is a must. Strictly add music!
