Personally I don't like to download loads of music at the same time. What for? Collecting GBs of data which you barely listen to once or twice? I still keep track of all music I listen to using last.fm, and follow their recommendations for new music to listen. Their recommendations are incredibly accurate, they have introduced me very good bands.

The server my box is on is in the netherlands iirc heh. Either way, my home download maxes at about 1.5mb/s and upload, I have no idea, maybe 200kb/s? So For me anyway, a box is practically a must if I want to be serious about torrenting to some degree. There are faster internet services here, but nothing like a dedicated server's line.

I agree with you. I have well over 150gb of music collected over the years, and while I realize this is nothing compared to what some people have, I can say I've listened to it all, several times. I download a bunch of albums and then spend time listening to them - I feel you need to listen to an album more than once or twice to get a good feel for it. There are a lot of bands that have grown on me over time due to this. The first time I listened to periphery and heard Spencer's wail I was like "uhhh I dont know about this," but now I absolutely love and adore that band. Last.fm is quite excellent.. I've found a lot of bands they've recommended here that I couldn't find elsewhere as well Smile3

So I download a bunch, spend a week listening, get a little bored, and do the whole thing again.

For me, I like to jump right into a band with all their music. I feel the more I hear from them, the better judgement I can make. That's why my download got so big.

Just as an update: I'm having great success seeding the popular torrents and it's recovering me to an acceptable rate. I'm still thinking about what everyone said, and when I get back to 1:1 I will do it correctly.
