Planning to watch the Beijing games via BitTorrent instead of NBC? TorrentFreak, my new favorite pirate read, asked a BitTorrent client developer to share his tips for maximizing your download speed. Greg Hazel's client configuration tips:
- Set a limit on your upload speed so it doesn't interfere with downloads.
- Set your client to use at most 60 connections total, 35 per torrent.
- Don't try to download more than two items at a time.
- I'll add: Configure your network router to not block any BitTorrent ports.
