Ah yes, it's starting to see a little bit faster now, 20+ KB/s, still
that's half of your rate. I guess maybe it's bittorrent
that discriminates based on geography ? That is, it will favour users
who are physically close to my computer, rather than sending it to each
and every users all over the world (I thought that's how BT worked,
being able to download from all over the world at the same time...)
Anyway, I will keep seeding it at least until I have sent as much as I
downloaded, to be fair...
