It's almost fun to watch the number of DHT peers climb. Nothing like Azureus, but I guess that will come in time. :D

Sweet! I've been watching this forum for about a month now, eagerly awaiting DHT. It's the only thing that kept me from switching from BitComet.

I have a question though. About "watching the number of DHT peers climb" - where is that exactly? I *think* I found it. Is it anyone in the "peers" tab that has "Mainline" under their client??

Or are you watching somewhere else? I figured it would show up under the trackers, as BitComet's does, but I didn't see it. Just happened to take a peek at the clients. So, is that right?

Ps. this is way faster than BitComet, and it doesn't freeze my connection either ;)
