a torrent of ghosts

I might be bittorrenting the Ghost Hunters episode where they are on the Queen Mary right now... I forgot to set the Tivo for it when the ep was rerun on TV, and they only have 10 episodes on iTunes and none of those are the one I need either. Which sucks because I would have much rather just bought it than have to deal w/the torrent.

So this torrent has been going for a couple days now and it's been kinda slow since there's not a huge demand for it. Right now it lists 99.28% of the pieces as available. I have 99.14% of the file. If it stalls out and never gets that last 3 MB, what are the chances that it's playable?


*edit*
Woo hoo! That last fraction of a percent came through! Now I can learn about all the ghosties lurking on the Queen Mary before I get out there!

A question . . .


I haven't been able to do a damn thing with bittorrent. It seems everything is geared around PC, so is there a way around this problem? Any suggestions?

I've got a G5, running OSX 10.4.7.

The program I'm using is called Bits on Wheels.

I've been really happy with it. During season 2 of Doctor Who when there were a ton of people seeding the shows I got pretty good download times.
The site I usually look for the torrents at is: http://www.isohunt.com/
The main thing to look for in a torrent is that lots of people are seeding it. If only one or two are and they turn off their computer you might not get the whole file.

Got botsonwheels. Searched for Six Feet Under, Season 4 and found it. They're saying I need something like uTorrent, BitComet or Azureus for this link to start P2P download)

Okay, I'm feeling kinda stupid. Am I missing something?
