need help again with downloading torrents

Hi there, I'm still dealing with a problem. I read all the FAQs and infos but still can't get it done.
I cannot decode the torrent files I downloaded earlier. I used both Traders Little Helper application and Front End 1.7.
This is how I did it: I saw a file I'd like to have:
THE BLACK ANGELS, 2008-05-20 THE LEADMILL, SHEFFIELD (FLAC)

1)So I clicked on the thumbnail of the attached file below and saved it on my pc (which went very fast - normally it takes some time to get my flacs on my pc)
2) I opened Traders Little helper in order to decode the flac files. But is continueously says: there is no file! Does TLH not recognise .torrent files to decode?

I'm getting kinda messed up with this system. Can anyone help me out with this? Probably I'm forgetting something or doing something wrong, so hopefully there will be people laughing out loud! :-)

Thanks again and hope it wil work this time!
Sanne

You need a bit torrent client.

You can't just save the thumbnail file.

That file is what you download as a path for the flacs.

Limewire is a file-sharing program, but NOT a bittorrent client. It's also been targeted by the copyright police.

I should also add as I am who put up the Sheffield show, that for what ever reason I have been unable to seed this show, I am sure I uploaded the same way as I have in the past but ending up getting a fair amount of torrent rage over the weekend trying to sort it out.

As a result I am getting a friend over and we will probably re upload.

Sorry for messing everyone around.

Actually, Limewire (poorly) supports bittorrent.
