Re: BitTorrent OSX?

I've got a 800 MHz G4 iMac with 768 MB RAM, and I use Azureus and I really like it alot. I mention my specs because some people say it's a real memory hog (and I agreed with them before I got this machine). Oh, I'm running 10.4.3 also.

Then it devolved into this thankfest thing that, while stroking the uploader's ego, is absolutely useless for any real purpose.

This whole 'thanks whoring' thing is a fairly recent phenomenon, and is in fact a bastardization of what the feature was intended for.

Personally, the # of people who download one of my uploads tells me far more about whether or not I did good than any number of 'Thank You!s' ever will.

Re: BitTorrent OSX?

Azureus is definitely the most customizable client there is. So if you want that you should use it.

Never heard of Transmission before.
