There is a part for them to play!

The post whores and trolls are there to amuse us at work, and those who bullshit on lineage either give us stuff we otherwise wouldn't see, or they emphasise just how important it really is to get it right by showing us what it sounds like to get it wrong.

Everyone has their place in the cycle of life. Now we can all hold hands, and no giggling at the back there.

How about you?

vlad, if your ratio has stayed at .26 for the last year, that means that you have kept a .26 on all your torrents for the last year. If you were sharing at 1.0 for the last year, your ratio would be going up, not staying the same.

You're right. I guess I'm just used to playing by dimeadozen rules.

Wouldn't it mean he's been sharing at exactly 1:1? That is, his downloaded amount & his uploaded amount have remained exactly proportional?

uploaded / downloaded = ratio?

In order for his ratio to rise, wouldn't he actually have to seed beyond a 1.0 ratio for a particular torrent, with the excess beyond 1.0 increasing his ratio? Of course, provided he wasn't downloading to counteract the increase.

No.

26/100 (starting ratio) + 30/100 (subsequent seeding) = .28 ratio. That is, if you seed at a ratio higher than your current ratio, your ratio will rise.

Let's change the subject. How about my Buffalo Chicken Wing Sauce recipe? Or what are the best beaches in the Seychelles? Something I'm better at.
