RE: BitTorrent issues with FC4 isos

after looking at 'getright', i'm suspicious as to how it can wor with any
given 'file' of any large size.. if as you say, it splits the file up, and
gets the chunks from different sources.. that's essentially what bittorent
does.. i'm dubious that this app has the number of users as bittorrent, and
i'd expect over all, that for large/more popular files, it wouldn't be as

however, it might be that the app can actually be pointed at a mirror for a
file, and directly download the file, which is not the purpose of

I too tried bittorrent but speeds were ridiculous. I just kicked of a
windows download manager - getright (http://www.getright.com/) - which
splits the file into several segments and downloads from different
sources. DVD version took about 2 hrs on my cable with speeds ~400KB/s
