What is Bit Torrent

by using wikipedia, here is the definition of bittorent : -

BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer file sharing protocol used to distribute large amounts of data. BitTorrent is one of the most common protocols for transferring large files, and by some estimates it accounts for about 35% of all traffic on the entire Internet.[1] The initial distributor of the complete file or collection acts as the first seed. Each peer who downloads the data also uploads it to other peers, even after they have dismounted the original seed. Because of this, BitTorrent is extremely efficient. One seed is needed to begin spreading files between many users (peers). The additions of more seeds increases the likelihood of a successful connection exponentially. Relative to standard Internet hosting, this provides a significant reduction in the original distributor's hardware and bandwidth resource costs. It also provides redundancy against system problems and reduces dependence on the original distributor.

in a simple word. it is peer to peer sharing. long ago we just know about napster, the pioneer of the peer to peer sharing... then come aries, limewire, bear share and so many p2p prgram. one thing about this is, all user need to register first before it can used the program. i still can remember back when i'm using napster.. i can seed all the file he/she share on the net. quite dangerous is it... hahaha

then, 3-4 yeasr back... i learn about bit torrent. it is free and open to all... easy to use and simple. ou can't just barge in the web which offer torrent file. you need a torrent client first... like bitcomet, azureus/vuze, utorrent and so many client. there's some noun reagrding this... whether you are seeder or leecher... seeder means the one and the original person provides the file and leecher is the one which connect to seeder and download it.once they finished it,automatic they will become seeder if they just left the file and not close it.

there's some unwritten ethics regarding torrents. you're advise to let others download from you ocne you're finish... meaning you must become a seeder... and some web implement ration system. if you're not reach certain level of ration you will be banned from using the service, which is known as tracker... our local tracker like jiwang torrent are using this system.still, there's lot of free tracker offerring the same file to download.

if you have client like bit comet and utorrent, all you need to do is just go to any website that offering tracker and download the file... the're bunch of thousand, even million file to download... if you like tv shows, movie, mp3, picture, ebook, software, game and so much more...

i've been using torrent for years... many movie, tv and anime i got... a lot of it... but you cannot sold it... just as for your personal mini library...

well, that's a story of torrent, hope you get something usefull from it...

as for today's torrent
