  1. Your upload speed should be limited to 80% of your line speed,for yours about 65 kb/s
  2. I've never touched my column headers since installing bicomet .70,so I don't think this is the case.It's not a major problem for me - just thought I'd add the buttons don't work for me rarely,although I too am extremely rough with them. he he.
  3. I think with most trackers the ratios have gone to pot.But basically if your ratio states 0.5 you have uploaded half of what you've downloaded.Therefore the decent thing to do when you've finished downloading something is to let the torrent carry on uploading until your ratio reaches 1.0.You will then have given to others as much as you've taken.Only right too. Also if you don't have have good ratio the GOD of torrents lets out an almighty cry and strikes you down with a bolt of lightning. :lol: This is why the US is well known for it's thunder storms. :lol: Ps. Demonoid forum is back up and running,if your still having probs try posting a question there.
  4. Try looking here. Follow the link and download the video tutorial.(Sorry I see you already did this) The video should be easy to follow.Watch it again pausing while you follow it step by step.Your missing something along the way. Here's a step-by-step to create and seed a torrent on Demonoid, using BitComet. It shouldn't be too hard to adapt to other sites and other clients. Gather your information Browse to the demonoid front page and click "Upload a Torrent" Click on the link to download the current "Tracked by" info file to your hard disk, and REMEMBER WHERE YOU SAVED IT. Check the "I understand and agree" box, and select any category, then click "Next Step" On the next page, copy the tracker urls for the demonoid trackers and paste them into a new notepad document, or put them somewhere you can get them later. Click your browser's "Back" button, and minimize the browser (or just close the browser, we're done for now.) Prep your torrent Place all the files to be uploaded into a single directory, by themselves. Do this even if it's just a single file.Do not place plain audio or video files into a zip or rar archive, this is just a waste of everyone's time and won't make the download any smaller. Add the "Tracked by" info file you downloaded above, to that directory.(and if you're using multiple trackers, any files other trackers require). Create your torrent Select "Create torrent" from BitComent's menu or icon. Click "From directory" from the torrent creation window Browse to the directory where you've placed the files Copy the Demonoid tracker url(s) you grabbed earlier into the "Tracker Server and DHT Network Node List" box, making sure these are correct. ( Please note that any url for bitcomet.net is just an example, and that bitcomet.net does NOT have a public tracker, so delete that if it's there. Leave the network type as the default "Enable Public DHT network" (Since this is a public torrent to a public tracker, you should enable DHT. If you're uploading to a private tracker somewhere that hates DHT or PEX, go ask THEM for help.) In the "Output" section, check "Generate .torrent file", and browse to the directory where you want it created. (I suggest your default torrent directory.) Click "OK" and wait a while as the torrent is being created. A progress bar at the bottom of the BitComet window tells you how you're doing. Check and load your new torrent When torrent creation is finished, use Windows Explorer (or whatever) to verify that the .torrent file exists and is located where you think it's located on your hard disk.. BitComet may have attempted to load the torrent, but if it didn't, do that now. Make sure the download location is correct. Select "Seed" as the task, set to "Start Now". Click the "Advanced" tab, and enable chatting, public DHT and Peer Exchange. Click OK. At the main BitComet screen, your torrent should show in the list, and should be at 100%. If it's not, you've got the download location wrong and need to fix that.Stop the torrent, right-click on the torrent name, and choose "Properties" Navigate to the correct "Save Location" directory. This should be the directory one level ABOVE the directory containing the torrent. (If you don't understand that, fiddle with it until you get the % showing as 100%). Click OK and check your % again. Ignore any complaints from/about the tracker for now Upload your torrent Browse again to demonoid, and click "Upload a torrent". Read the rules, never hurts to make sure you aren't doing something that violates them Choose the correct category for your torrent. When in doubt, choose the one most people would expect to find it in. Check the "I Understand and agree" box and click "Next Step" Choose the correct subcategory and principle language for the upload. If there's more than one language, you can talk about that in the comments later. Select the correct quality rating. If in doubt, please under-estimate the quality. Click the "Browse" button beside "Torrent File:" and navigate to the location where your torrent file is stored. Select the file, click "OK". In the "Name" field, type the name of the torrent. Make it as clear and descriptive as you can, it doesn't have to match the filename. (Here's a chance to show the world you can't spell or punctuate and your grammar's lousy.) Type in a description of the torrent. In detail. Be prolix. Wax an elephant. Spill your guts.It'll have to be at least a whole 30 characters long. Click "Finish Upload". If you've neglected anything Demonoid will complain, so fix it and try again. Otherwise, your torrent will be uploaded. BE PATIENT. It will take some time for the tracker to add your torrent and notice that you're seeding. Go make a sandwich or something and come back in 15 to see your torrent in the list and seeding. If you don't immediately see your torrent in the list, don't panic, just scroll down. You'll gain an appreciation of just how busy the tracker is and how many new torrents get uploaded. Yours is in the list somewhere. Seed You're done and you're seeding. Come back to Demonoid occasionally and click on "My Torrents" to see how your new torrent is doing. Don't stop seeding until there's at least one other seeder showing on the list. Check for any comments about the torrent, either to gather your well-deserved praise, or to answer any questions people may have, or to be informed of some incredibly ignorant goof you've made and need to fix.
  5. Demonoid opens for registrations every friday.I recommend registering,In my opinion Demonoid is in the top 3 torrent sites,no bad s*** and usually well seeded torrents.Although their website is having some little probs at the mo,A lot of people are complaing about their ratio not being correct,I suspect this is due to DHT connections.
  6. I saw in an earlier post you were asking about a different gif animator,have you tried Ulead gif animator. If you'ld like to try it click here.
  7. You can follow the tutorial in guides and how to's section.
  8. Yes you can manually change the favourites/sites,look in the guides and how to's section.Doing this is useless though,when bitcomet updates your favourites will update also.I think I read somewhere though Bitcomet are going to resolve this.I dont use the fav tabs in bitcomet anymore for this reason,pretty lame me thinks for your favourite tabs to be updated to someone elses favourite sites.I smell advertising/It's no better than a browser hi-jacker.
  9. I have the same problem sometimes,nothing I do other than re-start bitcomet will resolve it. :D
  10. Once again thanks mate. :D
  11. TUS I wonder if you can figure this out for me 'cos i'm baffled.My son as a pioneer cd player which will play burnt audio cd's but it wont play if they've originally flac files,I've checked the cd's in other players and they're fine-kinda puzzled. :blink: burning with nero btw.
  12. If you want to burn a dvd so it will play on any dvd player The Unusual Suspect posted a guide for using Nero in guides and how to's section here. I do agree with above posts though, it would be much simpler if you bought a player that will play data discs(divx,xvid,avi).It'll save a lot of time and money in the longrun.
