The downloading from one of the mirrors was going really slow so when I was a link on http://distrowatch.com/ for a torrent I tried it and its download much faster

just something i thought people might want to know sins there is no link to a torrent on the download page on the Ubuntu website that I could find at lest

I download the whole iso in about an hour in demonoid.com

There're about 6000 seeders over there.

Rechecking torrents is always a good idea.
