they are almost like file sharing.. you can download programs.. and files.. u need a torrent prigram.. like azerus or bitlord to run the .torrent files.....to search the torrent directory u can use isohunt.com or torrentreactor.net or torrentspy.com.. u use those sites to search for something.. movies programs etc.... and then download the file displayed in the search result.. and open it with one of the piorgrma slisted above for torrent files. hope this helps u.. i also find that theres less iruses on the torrent network compared to file sharing programs...

bittorrents can be used to share files (usually warez). careful what you say otherwise you might get this thead locked.

Totally non-program related also...

I just can't understand why it will eat your rom?if you mean to say it takes a lot of loads to your memory,well it doesn't. mine only uses 4% of memory usage...
