Dare I suggest that considerations of 'during the day' and 'overnight' might not enter into it, when there seems to be a good number of sharers here in Europe and other territories as well as the good ol' US of A....?

I leave mine running overnight, and you Yanks are all at work, college or suchlike....

Have the moderators got a picture of the TTD demographic? Users classified by country, etc...?

Regards, Graham
are you stating that you dont have daytime or nighttime in the UK ?
or are you stating that daytime and nighttime are not politically correct terms ?!

Re: New To This

I wasn't trying to bring in time zones, I was just saying that I run my torrents at full speed at night cuz I don't have to worry about sharing the bandwidth with my family at that time. It has nothing to do with sharing during any specific hours with others.

As for demographics, this site is predominantly Americans. I do find that a bit odd.

Just timezones; leaving a torrent running overnight to max out on seeding, it won't necessarily match with the leechers' night... and might not therefore get the desired result.

are you certain that your statement doesnt sound ridiculous ?
timezones are for trains - not the internet
