The best just got even better!

I haven't been here lately but just happened to stop by when you uploaded 1.6. :D

I've been having some trouble with my hd so hopefully the new stats graphs and settings help.

The only complaint I have is that 1.6 reset my columns.

Thanks. :)

I'm shushing...

BTW - there is some odd behavior in multi-files torrents. couldn't put my finger on it yet... it happens when adding a new file from the list. It sometimes errors, or asks for recheck...

The only thing I can point out now, is that the network icons needs to be more clear.
