  1. Didn't think it deserved a new topic... but OMG! I can't believe it! I finally got a feature named after me! Yay! After all the *counts... 1... 2...* handful of little bug reports and feedback I've submitted a couple years ago... yay! I dunno if I can use it just yet, with many private trackers blocking uberbeta versions of uTorrent (and I imagine they've got good reason to block a centralized web-access version of uT), but hey. If I can put in one feature request... keep the name the same Now it just needs a kickass logo to go along with the kickass name, and it'll be all-around a huge load of kickass.
  2. Yay, hopefully this resolves the crash-sessions I sometimes encountered. Also noticed in the log that the local peer disk congestion problem is finally addressed... I quit using uT for local torrents because the problems were so great with it eating up all available (and in the case of having swap enabled, unavailable) memory then crashing, when the network was faster than uT creating huge new data files. Such a pain in the rear, that bug was! Thanks much!
  3. Lord Alderaan: Yeah, that's pretty much what I have to do to keep uTorrent from eating up every last byte of system memory automatically. I found that enabling the cache - my bug is with the cache disabled which I want on a controlled LAN torrent - actually fixes the problem. I just decided to set it low, like to 8mb, instead.
  4. Cool, cool. I figured that was a very obvious glitch to be fixed soon, no sweat. But the disk cache thing? I can hardly use uTorrent with that problem... >.<
  5. Bug in the latest 1.7 beta found... by curious accident. LAN torrent, very high speed, at least 5 computers running it (I'm trying to get the others started). I'm getting progress on other computers but no traffic being reported by the torrent on my laptop (the seed). Absolutely no upload is being reported by the speed limiter (it's going full LAN speed), status bar indicators, or torrent details. Download is registered though. I also seem to be unable to connect my single 1.6.1 client to any 1.7 peers on the LAN torrent... =\ edit: Oh... also... the computer's got two LAN adapters - internet goes in from wireless, then is shared with ICS onto the LAN. It could be looking at only one network connection... edit: Another bug... I disabled read/write caching on one computer - the two default read/write checkboxes unchecked - in order to reduce RAM usage on a LAN torrent - and what do I find? OMG! It crashed the system with a massive, massive, uncontrolled "cache"! edit edit edit: Strange, it shows Disk Overloaded 100%, yet it continues downloading, increasing RAM usage like crazy as the HDD gets distracted by swapping, until I pause it and it writes the data to the disk... ugh. Attended downloads = SUCK.
  6. At least a full year later and UPnP is stiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiilllllllll broken... T_______T With absolutely no clues whatsoever as to what it was doing and why it failed... even lesser so than 1.5's UPnP! Just "Something went wrong"! Come on, Microsoft! Tell us something more useful... C'mon, can't we have an XP UPnP fallback?! It worked in 1.5 with the XP UPnP... And whatever happened to utorrent.com's "The lightweight and efficient BitTorrent Client"? "Powerful BitTorrent Client" sucks! Lightweight and efficient is the epitome of everything uTorrent stands for, and the reason I use it... now it's just Azureus?
  7. Waaaaahhh... UPnP still doesn't work. T___T (and the error reporting is still DISGUSTINGLY terse! Come on, can't I at least get my IP address and port mentioned in the log?) Windows XP UPnP fallback, anyone?
  8. I would, but I get banned too often. =P
  9. A good ol' %(%*@#$(*@!734982759#*$&@$#(*&%#(*$$##*()$@... What?!! O_O (FWIW, I'm no noob to coding... really.)
  10. Oh cmon, can't I be considered above "public"? I'm a little smarter at beta-testing than the idiot "ugh why my rar does are not play" grunting public... edit: oh... well, I forgot... uT isn't developed by a person anymore, it's developed by a corporation. I don't have a chance in hell. =(
  11. Not to mention regex is a bitch to get anything done... you know how long it took me to figure out how to tell mod_rewrite to rewrite /s.php/i/foo.gif to /s.php?i=foo.gif? It's like building an airplane or something. So much easier to just do search and replace or something...there has GOT to be a more understandable alternative to regex. >.< BTW, I may be falling off the face of the planet in a few months and I would really like to try uT 1.7 before my life essentially ends...
  12. I LOVE YOU!!!! Can I be the first to beta it since I've probably been the most vocal asshole about it? =P (Oh, and if you must, you -can- email me if you don't want a wild uprising of idiot n00bs asking for beta invites "plz"... )
  13. Never thought I'd say this, but here I am in Ubuntu with the ugliest-ass version of uTorrent I've ever set my eyes on... working. Had to fuck around with a few different options... funny how Wine emulates disk drives. At least I was able to painlessly move my torrents over from the Windows versions of everything... kinda nice seeing teh U running under teh Tux. BEHOLD! SCREENSHOTTY! Isn't it cute?
  14. It must have been changed to "on by default" then, because I fired up the new beta expecting a bug-fix release, and found this new bar on by default! It kicks ass, but I'm wondering why it wasn't mentioned in the changelog because I moved from 426 to 427 and voila, a change!
  15. WOW, okay, the new beta (427) has an awesome new feature, that little "category" bar off to the left side... ... My only question is... why wasn't this noted in the changelog?!
