Anyone use utorrent? I just downloaded the software, but I can't seem to figure out how to look for and find stuff...

What do you mean by looking for stuff.. I use this program all the time.

Are you in search of a site or a file ?? Here is a bit of stuff below, HTH. However if you're still flummoxed just PM me with the questions and I'll be happy to show you the ropes.

Below is screen you will get when you open the file and add to the queue list for downloading.

As you see below, when you open the torrent and start it up you can choose the location you would like to save it to, and you are able to select which files you require.

I use bitTornado as my torrent client, and then ISOhunt and Mininova for searching for the files - when you click 'download torrent' then bitTornado starts up automatically.

Okay, so there isn't a spot on the client that says "search" .... I have to go looking on my own. :thumbsup:

Thank you! :hug:

Piratebay.org (i think it's org) is another good torrent search site, and I think the loaded version of the Azureus client has a search function. Torrentreactor.net is another site. Sadly--Oink and Demonoid are dead. Hell I still miss Suprnova

I am such a non computer person, I have no idea what a bit torrent is and what it does. Can someone please tell me? I googled it but that did not help either. :hiding:

I don't know all the details, but a torrent is a file type that's specifically for sharing files. It reduces the amount of bandwidth needed for a file by splitting it up among lots of different users. Sorta.. kinda. I think. Very confusing. lol Check the wiki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.torrent) for more details. :)
