    Filesharing, AAAAHHH!! cgod, I don't know what to say.

    Ummm sometimes it takes awhile, especially if there aren't that many seeds. Perhaps you have a firewall on?

    Well, you may want to try disabling your firewall to see if that speeds things up. If that does speed things up, turn your firewall back on and configure it so that only bittorrent filesharing can flow through your computer.

    You'll most likely have to enable certain ports that BitComet uses for transportation. But I do believe the firewall is the problem, perhaps even after disabling it you'll still have connection problems (aka ZoneAlarm; lol I had so many problems with that firewall). I remember using Bittorrent once for music transportation at OverClocked Remix .com, it was VERY slow until I turned off my firewall (even though the required port(s) was open).

    bittorrent is a great idea, but I've never had any success with it so i usually stick with IRC for downloading. The only time I've ever seen bittorrent work well was at a huge LAN where one person set their client to super seed and the others to unlimited dl/ul...and even then it was only about 100kbps....I generally average 160 kbps on IRC at my buddies house.
