I used to do heaps. But then I realized i was getting stuff that I was never even using or songs I didn't even like and cut back as it was a waste of time.

not enough seeders?
I limit my Upload speed to 50kbps and i end up DL faster than i would upload 100kbps. I think the Leechers makes us go slower, so limiting your upload might give you a better DL speed. Though it doesnt always work.

i think that it means out of 225 possible seeds, you are only leeching off of 13 of them.

i also thought about capping my upload speeds. but think about it, what if everyone capped their uploads then everyone's download would slow down. so i just left it unlimited. im only seeding 14 out of 113. how do i get more?

If I don't cap my uploads to like 25kb/s, my internet disconnects a lot.

I started using azureus again after building my current computer, since it didn't really matter that it took up more resources.
