Q: Dumb non-China question of the day...

I'm downloading a big torrent file (Vuze bittorrent client),,,,  79.23gb,,,,  but I only have 29.54gb memory available on my MacBook Air (121.12gb flash drive),,,,   I didn't think about that because would put the file on my external drive anyway (1tb).   But do I still have to have 80gb plus available on computer to dl it?

*it's dl'ing now, I have 13.5%

In your options somewhere you should have the choice of where you DL the file to.

 

You won't have room on your Macbook so it will probably end in frustration and wasted time but you should be able to change the download location to your external drive.

79 gig, damn you copy 20 seasons of gunsmoke or something

 

the thing most people forget is to load additional trackers, the more you have the faster you can get what you need from other torrent sites since they share a lot of trackers.

 

You can download a list of trackers off of "bit che" as a torrent itself, just type in a search for trackers.

 

I do have 20 seasons of gunsmoke reduced to MP4 Ipod to reduce space, 73 gigabytes but I also have every "the great courses", 731 different ones takes up 1.86 TB, all reduced to Ipod mp4. i just reduced "castle" all seasons from 1080 and 131gb on handbrake to ipod mp4, now its 18 gb.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
