  1. Windows 10 Disk Boost service is permanently stopped and 'UPnP device not found' The program works fine but both services are active in Windows 7 so it would be appear to be related to Windows 10 and not the program itself.Then again, I'm running prelease build 17015 (Build 15014) which is beta. If there is any change with the release version I'll post back but I doubt it will hyappen
  2. That sounds as if there is a problem with a tracker. 'DNS resolve failed' means that your ISP (who runs the Domain Name Servers) can't convert the address. It's equally possible that it's blocked by the ISP. Try setting your Windows DNS to or (google DNS servers)
  3. Of course if you prefer *nix then.... % cd /tmp % touch this; chmod 000 this % ln -s /usr/bin/touch U % U this U: cannot touch this: no write permission $ ar x "my love life" ar: my love life does not exist $ ar x "matey, the treasure" ar: matey, the treasure does not exist $ talk Putin@Kremlin talk: Kremlin: Can't figure out network address.
  4. Using batch files in Windows C: / dos C:/dos/run run/dos/run
  5. While there isn't a 'bar' you can display the percentage . Right click on the top where it says 'Name' and you get a lot of options to add to the files, including percentage under 'Progress'.
  6. That didn't last too long - 9 1/2 hours and down it went again (I know the time 'cos I picked up 119 points instead of 120 LOL) I wonder if the hamsters have been chewing the cabling - they're rodents aren't they? After all, squirrels do it all the time (check here if you don't believe me)
  7. Look in Options - Tasks and select "Auto-resume tasks at program startup"
  8. Agreed - but they whipped the hamsters and it's up and running again. That's the only reason I post about this (so you are aware of the problems if you aren't actually connected)
  9. Looks like it's down once again. Is it my imagination or is this happening a lot more often than it used to? All we can do now is wait for the tech team to get it restarted
  10. I tried to log in from firefox and got the following: The owner of www.bitcomet.com has configured their web site improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this web site. This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate. www.bitcomet.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate expired on 15 January 2017 07:32. The current time is 15 January 2017 22:18. Error code: SEC_ERROR_EXPIRED_CERTIFICATE I eventually got in with MS Edge (that's a bit more trusting and allowed me to make an exception)
  11. What would be nice is a Linux version so I don't have to switch to Windoze every night in order to download torrents. Sure, there are torrent clients available but I prefer this one

    Tracking trackers

    I agree - but the reason I posted that was so that it was easier to find 'active' trackers as so many keep vanishing over time.

    Tracking trackers

    This website has a list of checked, active, trackers and is updated regularly. It claims 95% accuracy on active trackers in the list https://newtrackon.com/list
  14. "... did you intentionally mix up your idioms ..." Attention grabbing isn't it? (says he, grinning)
  15. and here we go again - the hamsters need an extra bowl of rice or something (or maybe that's why - they're on a lunch break) . Personally I think it's the gremlins - every time I approach a rank of 5100, it either goes down or my rank slides backwards LOL
  16. There's also the effect that by having a string of simultaneous downloads the whole system comesd under stress - CPU usage, RAM usage, disk access times all having to be shared. I've a 4 core i7 with 24 GB of DDR3 and, even running one instance of BitComet, it takes a hit on performance if there are several downloads running. Running a second instance would, really, double up on the access times. As I mentinoed, if the OP wants certain files to go to another folder apart from the default, then that's easily selected in properties. Simply stop the download for a moment and open up properties and the 'save' location can be changed there (it's not exactly brain science or rocket surgery) and then restart the download and the files will then go to the directory of choice.
  17. Bitcomet data is stored in <username>\AppData\Roaming\BitComet. Emule is stored in <username>AppData\Local\eMule. However, unlewss you have Windows set to 'show hidden files and folders' you'll never see them. Oh and just to toss a spanner in the works here - Mandarin and Cantonese are different SPOKEN languages - written there's no difference (but then I neither speak or write it and haven't got a Big5 keyboard either). I just have a couple of local acquaintances who do speak one ot the main languages and they told me that the written language is standard - the spoken isn't ;)
  18. One for the harassed mods :
  19. In addition to what the bossman said, running two separate instances won't increase your speed (if anything it would reduce it as the two apps 'fight' for control of the downloads). If you want certain torrents to go in a separate folder, that option is there in properties - you simply change the download destination from default to whatever you like. Additionally, your download speed isn't solely controlled by the client; there are other factors involved - your bandwidth for a start. You can share that, sure, but it will be split between the apps and still remain the same. Don't overlook the fact that, as well as bandwidth, your speed also depends on the guy(s) at the other end uploading speed. If that's low or if there are a large number of people downloading the same file from a small pool of seeders, it WILL be slow and there's no way round that.
  20. I think so - it may have been down for a while earlier (after 10 hours plus I was one point short of the 120 daily max). However, I'm signed in right now so it seems to be working.; It's not a big deal really - you can still download
  21. You may have the arrow, but it's possible there are no seeds or peers for that torrent (it happens a lot, especially on older ones). Look at the 'seeds/peers' column - if the first one is showing zero, no-one has a complete file. If both are zero, then no-one has anything at all.
  22. The Doctor called Mrs. Cohen saying, "Mrs. Cohen, your check came back." Mrs. Cohen answered, "So did my arthritis!" A car hit an elderly Jewish man. The paramedic says, "Are you comfortable?" The man says, "I make a good living." I just got back from a pleasure trip. I took my mother-in-law to the airport. I've been in love with the same woman for 49 years. If my wife ever finds out, she'll kill me! What are three words a woman never wants to hear when she's making love? "Honey, I'm home!" We always hold hands. If I let go, she shops. My wife and I went back to the hotel where we spent our wedding night, only this time I stayed in the bathroom and cried. My wife and I went to a hotel where we got a waterbed. My wife called it the Dead Sea . She was at the beauty shop for two hours. That was only for the estimate. She got a mud pack and looked great for two days. Then the mud fell off. Doctor: "You'll live to be 60!" Patient: "I AM 60!" Doctor: "See! What did I tell you?" A doctor held a stethoscope up to a man's chest. The man asks, "Doc, how do I stand?" The doctor says, "That's what puzzles me!" Patient: "I have a ringing in my ears." Doctor: "Don't answer!" A drunk was in front of a judge. The judge says, "You've been brought here for drinking." The drunk says "Okay, let's get started."
