Re: what is it and what does it mean?

I'm not sure what you are talking about exactly, but is it a circle next to each torrent that you are downloading? On Azureus and uTorrent, they use the circle colors to indicate whether the 'health' of the torrent. If this isn't what you are talking about, perhaps a screenshot would help. You might also try the bittorrent site where I am sure they have a FAQ for the application.

Well, without a picture I really can't guess. I'm on a mac and I don't see anything like that in my client. here is the faq: http://support.bittorrent.com/cgi-bi...v=1.2&p_cats=2

Re: what is it and what does it mean?

maybe you're talking about bittornado? they have a button you can hit to explain the colors. Green=good, Yellow=firewalled, Black=not connected at all, Blue=under 100% available at the time, cannot complete unless a seed joins (IIRC)

try the buttons, one of them will pop up a window telling you what they mean

also watch out if you are using bittornado, last I heard it had a bug where the process isn't ended properly, so if you stop and start it ten times you will have 10 instances running draining your cpu until you restart unless you kill them manually in the process list.

edit: maybe you're talking about the official client? I don't think it has that bug but the color meanings should be the same.
