title pretty much says it all :D sourceforge wants me to delve into the *whole* source code and coding and all that... ive never even seen source code, to much for me!

this is the project, for the curious:

there isn't much there, but it is fairly direct and to the point. if you want to question what my project is and whatnot, please read it all first :)

thanks in advance!

I would recommend that you use torrents, if you are able to seed it continously yourself.

There's probably also free web hosts that give you a gigabyte or two to do with as you please, where you could host it. I think dropbox also gives you 2gb, so you could use that. Or if you don't mind spending a couple of bucks a month, you could use Ubuntu One to give some cash back to Ubuntu.

i took Nevon's advice, but seem to be having problems seeding. some small thing i am missing, i am sure.

http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/5063553

trynig transmission and vuze.

vuze's NAT test thing says:


Testing port 26541 ...
NAT Error - Connection to 69.107.xx.xxx:26541 (your computer) refused.

i have never changed ubuntu's network settings from default. anyone have any idea?

edit: when i actually download something via torrent, both transmission and vuze automatically go into seed mode with no problems. what i am doing here is adding a torrent and letting it see that the target file is already 'downloaded', at which point i would expect it to start automatically going into seed mode. vuze and transmission both do the check and list it as seeding, but it doesn't actually seem to work...

Why not use dropbox?

PROTIP: Add more trackers to the .torrent and don't host said .torrent on TPB.
