When I awoke this morning I expected to see FG7 ready to burn, but whatever 
filtering vz is doing was quite successfull and had managed to stop azureas 
in its tracks with about half a gig to go.

So I shut it down and loaded up ktorrent.  I set it up with the same 2 files 
as I am also sharing the kubuntu-6.06-x86-dvd.iso because its used as the 
basis for emc2, the cnc machine control program.

ktorrent has managed to get things going again, but when I added the Kubuntu 
iso for upload, it appears to be hogging the upload bandwidth, which in turn 
has slowed the download average to about 60kbyte a second.

So, in Ktorrent, can the upload bandwidth be throttled on the individual file 
somehow, so that there is enough bandwidth to properly handle the downloading 
of the other file, or do I have to disable that share until the other is 

I've not succeeded in finding such an option in its menus as yet.

Cheers, Gene
