MX-17 Torrents

I know it is early days, but interesting to see that the 32bit torrent looks have more customers than the 64. 32 is not dead yet.

@ Paul. That is certainly conclusive, I had not looked at totals, only the activity when I wrote that.

Richard, thanks for the greeting and best wishes to you too.

Hi Gordon, watching the torrent traffic from your own point of view is what all of us do...and we are all seeing a small sample of the overall traffic by doing so...it is interesting nonetheless to where our local traffic is reaching out as the overall network is formed. With this fairly large number of seeds, I believe that traffic overall is increasingly localized as the distribution network grows in size...and that is probably how the algorithms are designed. It really is a fantastic bit of networking software.
