Hey, I haven't any luck on Google. Could someone explain to me how to use BitTorrent properly? I have a few wrestling iso's downloaded and they are in the queue--using BitTorrent, but of course they aren't downloading (0/kb being sent or received or whatever)

Is there a step I'm missing or what do I do to extract the file from the torrent?

Thanks

Might depend on your firewall settings. I use the campus provided internet, so there are certain bandwith settings that prevent me from getting more than 4kb/s. Also, I'm assuming that posting links to sites with torrents of illegally pirated media is frowned upon, but if you just google what you're looking for followed by "torrent" you can usually find what you want. Then just make sure that there are actually seeders online.

Also, Wikipedia is a wonderful resource and makes a great 1-2 combo with Google.
