    it's quick, but you haven't lived until you're downloading off bit torrent at over 1.5 megabytes per sec in the comfort of your own home ;)

    Errr - he's downloading off a newgroup server (by the look of it - could be FTP) so will likely be doing 100% of line speed 100% of time - no worrying about what peers are available with what connection speed :D

    Currently on an LLU line that only syncs around 4500 but gives a solid 450KiloBytes a sec from giganews :)

    Edit: that is obviously FTP now I look at it properly but meh :D
