    I have Bits On Wheels, and it works well, but it doesn't work with oink and I need to find a way to upload 7 Gigabytes within the next 7 days

    They all suck, but Tomato Torrent sucks the least in my experience.

    Have you guys found one that'll let you download part of a torrent, btw? I haven't specifically downloaded 'em all to look for that feature yet, but not having it bugs the shit out of me.

    on that note
    does anyone know any tweaks for tomato and/or OiNK for seeding at a higher ratio? I downloaded one torrent with the highest need for seeders and it still uploads at a slow as rate (2-10 kb/s). Does anyone know a solution?

    If you are talking about only downloading specific files in a torrent, azureus does that, pretty easily too I might add.

    Azureus does use more RAM then most simple BT clients, but I wouldn't want to use anything else even with that.

    Leave it to them to write a program in Java that has all the disadvantages (slow, bloated, memory hog, etc) but none of the advantages (runs on multiple platforms without modification) :mamoru:

    :werd: I absolutely can't stand the fact that it is in java, but even so, I haven't found another client that I like better, even with it's bloated self
