Jul 23rd 2007 11:48AM I think there is a typo in your article -
You said "Next time you're on the freeway and you see a Buick Roadmaster in the right lane"
But i think you mean -
"Next time you're on the freeway and you see a Buick Roadmaster going 10MPH under the speed limit in the left lane"
Seriously, think about the statistics - 15% of the drivers and cause 7% of the accidents. How often does Grandpa go out, anyway? I don't know all the statistics, but if they drive 1/2 as much as another age group, then their "safety" is gone. I agree with GMan, this statistic is crap.
Jul 19th 2007 12:51AM Just look at the Valleywag site - it's junk. They don't care about the point of FSJ, they just want to find his identity so they can get dugg in the hopes of luring people onto their site. Sorry, but crappy stunts to get the spotlight = no bookmark.
Jul 18th 2007 5:47PM Is it targetable and attackable? I'd love to find a way to pull it down and tame it :P
Jun 28th 2007 6:00PM Back to Darvin, though I doubt he will show his face again:
No encryption - True.
Reports stats badly - WRONG. Transmission fixed this ages ago!
Let me share my own stats, from the tracker, for ONE torrent:
Size: 1448.79 MB
Downloaded: 0 MB
Uploaded: 369.09 MB
Funny, I remember unpacking it and using it... How did I manage that?
No DHT - WRONG. Had this for a long time.
It has PEX. Not DHT. They are not the same. http://transmission.m0k.org/trac/ticket/7
No settings for the number of connections - WRONG.
No lazy bitfield support - no idea.
That's becoming more and more obvious...
No web interface - Pfft.
Pfft? I guess that's why both Azureus and uTorrent have options to at least have one...
Auto-import won't work if you use it over a network - Pfft.
As above, great justification for a lack of a serious feature.
You're sadly misinformed. It's a shame, too, that you dismiss good features because you don't have a need for them. Then again, with the developer's stance at Transmission, I'm sure you fit in nicely.
Jun 27th 2007 11:04PM To all the people who are trying to compare Transmission to uTorrent:
You need to go try uTorrent. You do realize how terribly lacking Transmission is, right?
Reports stats badly
No settings for the number of connections
No lazy bitfield support
No web interface
Auto-import won't work if you use it over a network
Maybe Transmission will be able to compete with uTorrent in a year or two, but right now, you must be kidding yourselves.
May 4th 2007 1:10PM I agree with #5. How long has it been since the end of the last competition?
Apr 30th 2007 1:33AM @7 - Protip: Your is possessive. "Your television." You're is a contraction for you are. "You're going to need to retake English 101."
I like the panning shot, nice touch.
