Torrent: Screw The Vote!

   Discussion: Torrent: Screw The Vote!
A.J. · 16 years, 7 months ago
Ok, if I did this right I'm now seeding a VCD standard MPEG file of Jian's recent Screw The Vote! special, for those of you without access to the CBC. Somebody try downloading this so I can see if it is working. :)

Moxy Fruvous member Jian Ghomeshi's documentary about the voting apathy of young Canadians. This MPEG can be viewed on Windows Media Player, or burned to A VCD (use the VCD setting of your burning software) and played in a DVD player.

What's the link to the .torrent file itself?

Never mind...I got it...

I've just never tried to download a .torrent file using a URL like that. :)

Thanks for seeding this AJ!

Looks good (if slow) from here, AJ. It wouldn't let me wget the torrent file, and the tracker seemed to want to reject my connections for a few minutes, but right now I'm getting about 11k down with you as the only seed or peer.


(Btw, why not seed this on bargainville? ;-) )
A.J. Back · 16 years, 7 months ago
I would have, but bargainville says it is is music only, and I'm generally a rule follower. We can put it there too, if Jason wants it.

As far as the speed, yeah, it is only me so far. It should get better. Should I be in superseeder mode? I think I'll enable that and see if it helps any.
Joe Navratil Back · 16 years, 7 months ago
Superseeder helps when there're a large number of leeches with a small number of seeds; or when the pipe is smallish. So yeah, it'll probably help right now. Unfortunately, none of the CLI-based clients I use have it as an option, so I haven't played around with it too much.

I'm still leeching at about the same rate, and I'm peering at the rate I've capped. I haven't seen any other weirdness since right after I connected, so everything seems just right, now :-)

Since the first tracker I used seems to have gone AWOL, I've added another.

It is

I was looking at jians website and see he has many projects going. Jian has a solo album, his own tv show and appearances on tv shows as well as producing other artists(dar williams etc) so the chances of a moxy fruvous reunion are pretty slim
A.J. Back · 16 years, 7 months ago
Jian's many activities are not the biggest obstacle to an end to the hiatus. If the other guys wanted to do it, he'd find a way.
Paul · 16 years, 7 months ago
What are the biggest obstacles?
lawrence Back · 16 years, 7 months ago
personally, I'd say the biggest obstacle is the "reply" button.

*falls over*
Paul Back · 16 years, 7 months ago
no  it works fine :-)
Agent Scully · 16 years, 6 months ago
is anyone still seeding this?
A.J. Back · 16 years, 6 months ago
I can. Use the second tracker I posted. The first one seems to have disappeared. I started seeding for the new tracker, but nobody ever downloaded anything. I don't know if the problem was on my end or their end or that there were no takers. I'll start seeding now. Let me know if it works!
