Yeah, I've been in that situation too, but downloaded an entire GoodSNES set because it was actually easier than trying to find a site where I could download a single ROM. The ESA's doing a brilliant job of stopping video game piracy, don't you think?I know that better download the entire set of ROM than play with single files. But at this time I needed was just one game.
Transmission should be good. I personally use KTorrent myself, but I've ended up looking at rTorrent since my use of torrents is so massive. Still, if you ever end up thinking Transmission is too basic, Deluge is the one to go for.At the torrents: I know µTorrent but I use Ubuntu Linux and on it Transmission program.
I generally recommend Deluge because it's GPLed (we'll likely never see the source code to µTorrent), available for multiple platforms (µTorrent is available for Windows, with a Mac OS X version in beta, and no Linux version planned), and I don't really trust BitTorrent Inc. It really seems to me that µTorrent, along with Vuze (nee Azureus) have turning from 'file sharing' applications to 'content delivery' applications, and I don't like the feeling of not being wanted. The developers of Deluge, KTorrent, and rTorrent don't really give a shit what you do as long as you share any modifications to the program, and I like that.Why's that ? What are the big differences between the two ?
ok is it basic but what could one ask for more from the program to downloading torrents. it simply, don't eat a lot of computer resources. like µTorrent - it's basic too.Lillymon said:Transmission is too basic

Not a clue actually. The list of clients I've used on a regular basis is: BitTorrent (Mainline, pre-µTorrent purchase), BitTornado, Azureus (pre-Vuze), and KTorrent. I'm thinking about rTorrent partly because KTorrent leaks memory like a motherfucker, and I can run rTorrent in screen, meaning I don't have to have X11 loaded to keep seeding.I've been using μTorrent; for a while (after switching from Azureus -- which I liked in terms of features, but which took up more memory and processing time). What sort of differences are there in terms of functionality and resource use between μTorrent; and ones like rTorrent and Deluge?
Underground Gamer has a wiki page that helped me out here. Turns on my British keyboard using Kubuntu Linux, Alt Gr + M = µ. Sort of makes sense as a capital µ (micro) is M (mega), the latter apparently being very similar to, but distinct from, M.side note: Numeric character references are allowed, but character entity references are not allowed on vBulletin? Weird and annoying...
ok, my transmission is smalllillymon said:It should also be noted that there is a difference between 'small' and 'basic'.
Kubuntu 8.04 at the moment. Unfortunately, I've managed to somehow mess up sound and networking here, so neither is working properly. I'm waiting until 9.04 now, when I should hopefully be able to do a clean wipe and upgrade, and get a properly working system.Which Linux using Lillymon :?:
