Re: Which Bit Torrent Client Do You Use?

I hope this isn't what you mean (fingers crossed).

I like that fact that I can fine tune the up/download speeds for the individual torrents. That's a good feature for me.
No, with Bit Tornado (or with any client for that matter) you don't have to restart from the beginning. Unless your pc crashes and you have the flush data to disc option turned off. It will usually start back up straight away without having to process the files again, both when downloading and seeding. Sometimes it seems to forget where it was and has to check the whole lot again but it only takes a minute or two.

BTW I found out how to set individual upload caps in Azareus so that's one less reason to use Bit Tornado now.
