Question Not sure if this is the correct forum for newbie help . . .

I've never done a "Torrent" before which is kind of amazing since I build my own computers and dabble in VB & C++. Perhaps I should qualify that as "I've never completed a Torrent before" because the only thing I remember about attempting it 10+ years ago was someone somewhere in the ether commenting "okay, who's holding back that seed". The whole thing seemed so alien to me!

Erm . . . Is there a newbie forum/stickie for Torrents -or- conversely, could you recommend a favorite site/link to walk me through Torrents? I don't even know if the phrase peer-to-peer is still being used it's been so long! Thanks.

There's an FAQ accessible from the front page of the site. Maybe start there?

There are a few I could recommend and some that I wouldn't, but the important thing is to explore all options available. If you get stuck the best option is a general Google search so keep this in mind.

If you don't get any luck with torrents then peer to peer may be the way to go.

It can't be that hard...judging by some people I have met on torrent sites.
