The UK uses Celsius too, you silly Viking :p

And the United Kingdom location setting provides measurements in Metric: https://dl.dropbox.c...tricsetting.png

I didn't know that the network molestation was a uTorrent thing... I might have to try alternatives because I have noticed that.

For some reason the only client that works best for me is uTorrent. I get good connections to peers and the download speed is good.

I have tried Transmission, Deluge, Vuze, qBitorrent and none of them even come close to the transfer speeds as uTorrent. Maybe I have configured something wrong...


qbitorrent works just as fast as utorrent for me, I can always max my bandwidth on a well seeded torrents. it supports all the bittorrent features utorrent does too (utp etc...)

my only problem with qbittorrent was the WebUI is very buggy (doesn't like to render fully). as i use the webui quite a bit that in itself is enough to turn me away from it

I'm trying out deluge right now, and it's pretty good but I miss some of the things about the utorrent webui (mostly how it manages multiple save folders)

but then I might as well use the Norwegian location setting, it has all the proper measurement, punctuations and number value and the correct curency. and the language setting is separate so I can have my OS and any properly coded app in English :)

yeah, utorrent at least used to be horrible with the network, even nearly killing routers without even providing max speed.

qTorrent is a great alternative if uTorrent starts developing bugs that affects your usage in the current builds. I tend to find myself switching from uTorrent to qTorrent / visa-versa every 3-6 months (mostly due to web interface or CPU usage issues).

Yes, i am looking for alternatives as well, but i do like utorrent (when it works) anyway, i was banned at forum.torrent.com for posting a question in 2 relevant threads; i think they didnt like the question;

my question was;

what is the most recent stable utorrent build that respects the upload limit?

 

i know 3.1 worked for me; but i didnt want to deinstall/install 20 different builds between 3.1 and 3.3.1 to figure it out. i was hoping maybe someone did this already and could give the answer straight off.

No crap version. Respects upload limit.

 

2.2.1 seems to be the best, at least IMHO. Last of the versions that went to complete garbage.

thanks for your reply.

yes, i like that one as well, but i noticed with that 2.2 the DHT doesnt seem to work as well than it does with these 3.0 builds;

and DHT is where i find most peers when looking up older torrents.

smaller memory footprint with less garbage.

and compared to what i see in your signatures; you gentlemen have spacestations, and i have an amstrad 386sx25mhz

I've been torrent hopping between clients lately

 

On Windows I prefer Deluge

 

OS X and *nix, Transmission
