Speeding up Utorrent

Has anyone seen the following link in Utube? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UA9md-JxgQI. It's a tutorial video with step by step instructions on how to speed up Utorreent. It's basically a visual walkthrough of which settings and values to change. I followed the video & made the suggested changes. My question is.... Did I actually speed up Utorrent or did I open my computer to hackers?

From what I've heard, that guide tells people to set their half open limit really high...which is a disaster for those on marginal networking hardware and/or software.

Forwarding 1 port on your router, especially if it's a port >30000, isn't particularly dangerous.

If you used DMZ on the other hand or don't have a router...then you BETTER have a good software firewall that is enabled or your computer's probably ALREADY infected.
