    I never thought I'd see BitTorrent and Packers together before.

    I use torrents on a regular basis. I strongly suggest anyone who wants to download a .torrent file install a program called 'Bit Comet' which can be found simply by searching for bit comet via google.com

    I'm going to be seeding it when it's completed. I'm just so happy we get to watch our teams play even if it is just a scrimmage...its been a while.

    Gotcha, so you have to do it by a link not like other p2p where you can search for it in your client? I didn't see a link for the scrimmage on the bills site. The one link I found to an actualy torrent file was for some 9/11 music file. Anyone find where you can dl the scrimmage torrent file?

    You click the link which initiates bit comet or ur torrent client program of choice which then begins the download at which it connects to mulitple seeders it will seem slow at first but usually picks up

    its great IF you wanted to find movies that jus came out in theatres or music CDs that were jus about to be released or heck even programs.

    Hmm well this is one things I like better about p2p, you can search in the client software. I will try some bit torrent search sites and see if I can turn anything besides porn and music up.

    If someone was able to get it downloaded, I will get you a un/pw to my ftp so you can send it over and I will post it on the site here for everyone to download. Much easier than screwing around with the torrent.

    I have the file downloaded but you are going to have to walk me through the steps. I'm not that familiar with ftp... :-?

    unbill do you have a link to the torrent file that you downloaded? I can just get it from where you got it. Otherwise, for ftp, first thing, are you on a high speed connection?

    Apparently the tracker isn't working anymore. The link to donload the scrimmage someone put up on the bills site isn't working anymore. I have the file downloaded but cant reconnect to the tracker to share.

    I guess I could learn how to create a new torrent file if people are interested. I have never done it before though.

    If there is an easier way let sending it to someone through Msn messenger or something let me know.

    Yes...high speed internet.

    I will get you a username and password for my FTP server (send it to you via pm) and you can load it up there. Then I will publish it to our site here for download.

    Convert with WinRAR or WinZip if you can, it will decrease the time to upload.
