Hi there, fellow esteemsters.
So, loads of people here have only got a few Daria episodes off limewire, and are desperately seeking another fix of an adventure time they can enjoy without ever having to leave their room (or cardboard box, with a high-speed internet connection). Unlike hiking trails*, I have the solution! Love me.
A recent post led to a completely accidental rant on my part about the wonders of Azureus, a downloading program, especially with such large scale things as the Daria series.
Some extremely kind and noble person was about to upload (on sendspace or whatever) individual episodes of Daria. That's about 200MG per ep, killing the time, effort and bandwidth of both the up/&/downloaders, as opposed to torrenting, where you can go bit by bit (without having to sit there for one single file).
The only problem is, it's kind of confusing..
I downloaded like 3 programs (Azureus twice!) and just kept opening them, staring at them blankly, and deleting them.
I don't know utorrent, but I think bittorrent is one of the commonest. I found it too simple, and thus confusing to fiddle with (kind of like how I feel about macs sometimes, if that makes sense!) But I'll show you how to use Azureus on a mac, and I'm sure it's basically the same on a PC.
So, here's a smarmy, colourful, and hopefully clear and helpful guide to torrenting the best show in the universe.
