    Intrepid Torrent is Sllllooowwww

    Intrepid has been released.
    Says so on the homepage.
    http://www.ubuntu.com/

    well I downloaded it the old fashioned way about 5 minutes before the announcement, but am currently seeding it out of generosity (actually, mostly to spite the morons in charge who think BitTorrent is wrong) and am currently giving out 1.1 Megabytes per second, so someones getting it quick.
    This sentence is a lie.

    Yup, has slowed right down for me. Bouncing back and forth from 60-100kbps down from around 500kbps when i first started the download.
