Truly the internet is global.

Also "truly bittorrent needs some work on not wasting bandwith pointlessly". :)

Yep . That is trully global. You should use a client like azureus , with the plugin to show the country codes/flags.. You'll see some flags you've probably never seen :P

As for the bandwith waste , it's really an issue.. One of my friends just measured it and on a 50KB/s transfer (I dont recall if it was download or upload) , he had an extra 30KB/s of message exchange made by the protocol...
