    I'm looking for some help with torrents...

    I'm running Win Vista Ultimate, Core2Duo, 3gb ram, 250gb hdd.... got uTorrent, using Mininova...

    BUT, it's taking FOREVER to download movies/tv shows/etc...

    everywhere I look , talks about seeds/leeches/leechers/seeders/etc...

    WTF???

    Can someone throw me some tips, on how to get this shit to download faster, What can I do ??

    Thanks guys!!

    You need to find torrents that have a high seed number and a lower leech number.

    If you see something that has 10 seeds and 100, 10 or even 5 leeches, it won't be fast.
    Find something that has 800 seeds and 200 leechs and you'll be blazing.

    Seeds essentially being the number of PCs that are hosting the file, while leeches are the number of PCs / people trying to download the file. It makes sense.

    When I search the torrents I always organize the search so it displays the results with the most seeds at the top.

    That's the ticket!

    Yes, all of the above is correct. Especially the port forwarding part if you are using any type of router at all. Make sure you keep the connection open once you finish downloading so you can become a 'seeder', someone with the complete file who is spreading the 'seed' to other folks.

    Try connecting directly to your modem if you usually go through a router. I have to do that sometimes. Maybe you are dl-ing something we/i have and can seed?
