Ok here are some from my torrent thread that deal with torrents. You can see the thread HERE:

  • What is Bit Torrent (and what is a torrent "client")?
Well, Bit Torrent is simply a way of transferring files, and all you will need is program that you will install on your computer that allows you to download different "torrents". This program is called a "torrent client". It will allow you to not only download them, but it will also let you share the programs that you have downloaded with others. A torrent client will also let you control the torrent(s). You can decide if you want to share the torrent(s) or it will let you decide when to stop it .
  • What is a Torrent?
A torrent is simply a text file with the file extension of ".torrent", that contains the information on what files to download, where the torrent tracker is, and some other information related to the download. A torrent can contain any number of different types of files, music, movies, games, programs, applications.
  • What is "Seeding"?
Seeding means that you have already downloaded the entire program (movie, game, etc.) and you are letting others download it from you. You are sharing it back with others who are trying to get the same files.
  • What is "Leeching"?
Leeching means that you are downloading and have not completed it 100%.
