How to download using Torrent

Hello everyone, i just feel like writing today and i've decided to write about (arguably) one of the best thing that internet has to offer, which is called the BitTorrent or just plainly Torrent. I know that most of you already know how to use torrent but this guide is intended for noobs, not pro's (heh). And I believe i need to write about this because most of the posts here in my blog needs the knowledge of downloading torrents.



What is a Torrent ? - A torrent generally signifies a strong flow of something, especially fluids and particles, and in particular water or rain. (Wikipedia)



Whar is BitTorrent? - BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer file sharing protocol used for distributing large amounts of data. BitTorrent is one of the most common protocols for transferring large files, and by Ipoque estimates it accounted for approximately 27-55% of all Internet traffic depending on geographical location as of February 2009 (Wikipedia)



What the Hell does Torrent give me? - For me, I use torrent to download Movies, Music (Full albums), Games (heck almost all games), and Softwares.



Is Torrenting illegal? - Almost every form of media can be downloaded using this. People share their files, you download their files, and you also pass the files to others. That's how it works. It will become illegal if you download copyrighted or licensed materials so just be careful!



How do i begin downloading? - Well, without further ado, here are the steps in downloading files using Torrent.



1.)Download a Torrent program. (BitTorrent, etc.) but i prefer using uTorrent. http://www.utorrent.com/ and get their latest version.



2.)Run the program and Install it to your PC, just click on Next - next - next until it is finished.



3.)After installation, you must download a file tracker. A file tracker is a small file that will be used by your program to download your desired file. Examples of sites that searches the net for trackers are The Pirate Bay, Mininova, and my personal favorite, IsoHunt. Just google them and enter their site.



4.)Commonly at their main page there is a search button, just input your desired file. Or you can browse on their top downloads section.



5.) Once you have the file, Open it using your uTorrent program, or click on the icon just below the "File" menu button. It has a + sign shown.
















A 700 mb AVI full movie file will take approx. 1-2 hrs on a 380kbps connection.

Just a reminder before downloading,
- Always turn your Anti Virus on
- Check the comments on the file trackers first before downloading them. (some are just bogus files)

Happy Torrenting!

Psycho-Emotional Self. How will you control your temper?

I have the tendency to get offended sometimes and on rare occasions, I can lose my temper. I think it is normal for a human being to lose their cool sometimes. I guess I can work on controlling my temperament more, in order to efficiently deal with people and avoid future conflicts. My action plans would be
1.) Listen to what others are saying – I know when you lose your temper you have the tendency to “Not listen anymore”, and the other person might have a point on what he/she wants to say. If you don’t know how to listen and to address their concern, chances are the argument will continue and there will be no negotiation that is going to happen.
2.) Learn to understand – So if I manage to listen to the person I am in conflict with, I must learn to understand more of their needs. I need to learn if their need is manageable to work out. If the answer is yes, then I need to give way to their point and learn to understand their feelings. Sometimes things don’t really go after yo…
