  1. Yeah, I'm still around Firon. I don't have time for forums and such anymore (I'm always busy as hell) but I still try to keep myself up to date with the software releases. Anyways, great job with uTorrent, guys. This is one of the few bullet-proof programs out there, it just never fails me. Amazing!
  2. Old timer here. Thanks for everything, uTorrent. :cool:
  3. Last I heard, it was gonna be v.1.6, as the WebUI and the other stuff are "big" additions/changes.
  4. Slimy: uhm...yes we have, although it's private.
  5. Careful...I'd be very, very wary of installing that "µTorrent v.1.6"...any build not distributed through www.utorrent.com should be treated as hostile. :/
  6. G is 54 Mb/s max, <= v.4 had Linux firmware, v.5 is VxWorks, GS can achieve higher throughput (can't recall exactly how much), but only with the same equipment (meaning if you have another D-Link/Belkin etc. router crap, it won't achieve speeds > 54 Mb/s), GL is 54 Mb/s max and is guaranteed built upon a Linux kernel. I'd go with a GL, if I were you.
  7. Hosfhi: it's probably the leaked 439 build...don't worry about that, it's about to be superseded anyway...
  8. I always love hearing people get better speeds...thank you!
  9. Damn it. Just when I thought it would be safe to move to Linux...hopefully the next version will fix it. :/
  10. 1.) Because people keep complaining that µTorrent "ramps up slowly". Well, the patch fixes that and still allows enough connections for aggressive surfing/multiple downloads (FTP etc.) at the same time. You can lower it if don't think you'll need that much. The guide is not the end all be all. 2.) Yes, that's what I use and on most torrents I get great speeds. Too many connections will steal your bandwidth because µTorrent has to keep communication with all those peers, most of them which you'll not receive anything. It's better to have a few peers uploading to you @ > 5 kB/s than dozens of peers @ < 0.3 kB/s... Then again, if 55 peers works better for you, hey, nobody's stopping you. Use what works for you.
  11. Yeah, that's more like it. The first test was probably just a fluke. Enjoy µTorrent.
  12. It's known that ZoneAlarm can block legitimate packets from getting through, which means things have to be re-sent over and over again. That's the only thing I could think of.
  13. It could have been a bit faster (like around 200 kB/s), but I don't know if you had anything running in the background that could slow it down. The OOo torrent usually maxes out most connections. In either case it's certainly not a bad speed...
  14. It's not recommended, since Tor doesn't have the bandwidth to handle stuff like BitTorrent traffic, not to mention you could screw up everything for everyone if the onions go down. Don't be a jerk and ruin things for people. :/

    Weird. MPlayer plays every file I've thrown at it so far perfectly... :|
  16. I've put away my baseball bat. You can come out now. 1.) Ignore the warning. If you've port forwarded manually, there's no need for UPnP, hence that "error" message. P.S. make sure you've unselected "Enable UPnP port mapping (Windows XP or later only)". 2.) You can safely ignore that warning as well. They've put it in there for people who don't know what they're doing, but since you and I do know what we're doing, that warning does not apply to us.
  17. I think your spamming is reason enough to join...you could do something productive for a change...
  18. aoetwo: sorry for not getting back to you sooner, but I had tons of things to do. Saying that, I'll go straight to the point: 1.) Do you see a green light in your status bar or not? 2.) Have you enabled Protocol Encryption (not Forced) and DHT/PeX?
  19. Directrix: I'm also willing to test the Web GUI extensively. As you know, I'm always idling in the IRC channel and if/when I find a bug with either Firefox, Opera or IE, you'll be the first to know about it.

    And the codec wars continue... Heh, just wait 'till Firon chimes in...

    KoolPlaya with your favorite codec pack (CCCP, FFDshow, etc.). I keep them in the odd case that I need to play a weird format file.

    http://mpui.sourceforge.net/ That's a cool front-end (nice site too, IMHO) for MPlayer. Keep in mind you still need to download the back-end from the MPlayer site. On an unrelated note: I can finally uninstall VLC since Mplayer can also play .BIN files (something no other player has been able to do, including KoolPlaya + codecs).
  23. Yeah CyberChaos, I love your work!
  24. Well the TCPIP.sys patch is only for Windows XP SP2, and not everybody has that specific version. The built-in speedguide also has some optimal settings, though my settings are often called "insane" or "excessive" compared to others. We'll see.
