OC ReMix BitTorrent Distribution: Issues; also SEEDERS WANTED

Recommended Posts

uTorrent is the easiest to get used to. It's got a interface similar to Limewire/Kazaa/Ares, so there won't be much learning curve.

Then go to thepira-- I mean, go to OCR's torrent section, and download/open the torrent file you're interested in with uTorrent.

hello there, kinda new here and im sorry that i have to kickoff with a probably stupid question... :tomatoface:

downloaded the torrents of 1-1000 and 1001-1700

finished it today and was wondering why

1-1000 only consists of 868 files and

1001-1700 only consists of 691 files ?

Not the first time that's been asked. Here's a page about the torrents, and a quote from there:

Some ReMixes have been removed from OC ReMix because of rules violations, by request, or some other reason. The torrents served here contain only the ReMixes that are currently published on OC ReMix. This means that if you download OCR00001 to OCR01700 you will end up with quite a bit less than 1700 mp3s.

I just finished downloading both torrents and noticed there is one remix included that is no longer on the site:

Pilotwings 64 - ClearSkies - Remix of "Birdman" by Scott Peeples.

Just thought I would bring that to somebody's attention. (My apologies if this is old news.)

Yeah, I already knew about that one. Dunno when we'll redo the 1-1000 torrent though. That'll eventually be fixed. Thanks for the reminder!

I'm not even sure that this is still open or whatever, but I've been seeding since I've downloaded these. I think I'm at about an 11:1 ratio of seeded:downloaded...and every once in a while I'll upload at something silly like 2 megs per second (college internet is kinda odd).

So, jeah. I don't plan on deleting mine any time soon, either.

FYI

SuperTux, the server that has been hosting the OCR tracker for many years, has lost its network hosting. I had a great setup going and have no complaints.

Anyway the tracker will be back online soonish.

The SuperTux OCR mirror, probably not.

Damn, now I'll have to wait.

Thanks for the heads up.

I'd ask if your campus allows legal bit-torrent downloads so you can download things like Linux and OpenOffice....and the ocremix torrent

The tech department at this college is more likely not to know what a torrent is.

I have little faith in this college as it is, since the net is so shaky.

A little slow down is understandable, but when the internet goes down on campus for days at a time, it's just stupid.

I'd like to call bs on the techies at your college not knowing what Bittorrent is. I was a tech for my college at one point and took advantage of the position quite well... They got to be hicks not to know about torrent technology...

I'd be wary of them, especially if they try to pin something on you to distract others from their "activities"...

most don't, and pretty much if you ask too many questions most will just ban your ip for a short time until you stop asking said questions.

And that is why you phone or talk face to face and avoid things like room number or computer name.

As for the crappy network up-time, it may not actually be ITs fault (not to say there isn't a good chance of it). Lack of funding to upgrade network hardware is a problem among many schools and businesses. I've known a few places where the finance department has "forgotten" to pay the ISP, or the ISP contract says once the limit is reached, the connection is pretty much cut.
