That way, everybody could get that month's new remixes while continuing to seed the old ones as well. The only major problem would be to coordinate the switchover every month, but it would probably just be a matter of getting the core seeders to switch over the majority of the bandwidth so that there would be no incentive to use the old torrent files.

Also, I think it should be noted that everybody should be seeding, no matter what their bandwidth. My DSL slows to a crawl if I try to do anything, but I can spare 5kB/sec. It isn't much, but it is a megabyte in under 4 minutes, and if everybody did just 5kB/sec, the available speed would be astronomical.
djp would only set up a torrent like that after a lockdown, due to remixes that could possibly be deleted due to rule infringment. You would be surprised as to how many mp3s have been pulled from the site, some months after posting, some hours. Like Aubrey said, after 500 maybe another lockdown and torrent then.

I lost 75 of my files with the torrent. So my question is: what happens if a file has the same name but not the same size? Will it be overwritten? that would explain it.

Which 75 files did you lose? Did you lose them when everything was done downloading? If so, it's because there aren't actually 1000 mixes when everything is done downloading. Just trying to get more specifics. If you stopped the download and had tons of unfinished songs, and then redownloaded, it would find the same file names and continue to build on their kilobyte count. I could only see someone accidently getting duplicates, rather than missing files.

Well, i have almost every ocremix. Then i tried the bittorent and alot of files turned into 0kb files. Apparently it tries to redownload more than half of the total remixes.
I can hardly believe that more than half of my files is not the same as the ones in the torrent and have to be redownloaded.

Is there another BitTorrent client for Mac OS X other than the official one? It can't support the 500+ open files at one time, but I couldn't find another client on versiontracker.com.

Of course, if the files were re-seeded zipped into one (smaller) file, that would be nice too...

Bachus: I've used the official BitTorrent client for OSX and found that it could support downloading torrents with about 960 files just fine. As far as I was aware, only the official windows version (and those based closely on it) that had issues with torrents with > 500ish files...

Are you just wanting a better client? Or are you having issues downloading the ocremix torrents to your Mac?

cyber148: your client is downloading bits and pieces from all the songs randomly. Your client will automagically reassemble the MP3 pieces in the proper order once it is done downloading all the data via bit torrent. Just have some patience, and everything will work out.
