Re: how many shows to share at the same time?

There's only so much you can squeeze down the pipe.

The combination of your ISP, your torrent client, etc. will dictate how much data you can send. Let's say this peaks at 100kB per sec

If you're seeding one show, you can potentially deliver 100kB of that show to the leechers on that show every second.

If you're seeding 10, you can deliver 10kB of each to the leechers for each show every second.

The more shows you pile in, the slower it will get for those leeching, surely, because each show will get less of your available data?

(Any techie feel free to correct me if I'm off the mark with this...)
