Actually, the processor is rather unimportant. Any modern processor can deliver more content than the interconnection can handle.

So the important question to ask is "how is .... connected to the 'net?"

Actually, the forum is not on the Opteron... The web server for the forum is on a 1.5GHz P4 with 1GB of RAM... I don't know what the database server is...

There was 2 bytes of crap at the end of the m40 link I posted above... The new link is:

http://opteron.mersenneforum.org/m40.zip

BTW, I have everything set up we need to run a Bittorrent in the future, except for the tracker... If someone can figure out how to get a tracker working we can Bittorrent any file we need...

I have a tracker :).

When making the file, put this in the tracker/announce URL:

http://andrewhitchcock.org:6969/announce

Also, if you e-mail me with some stats for each file (filesize in bytes, filename, and the .torrent you just created), I can add them to the database at my tracker page.

http://opteron.mersenneforum.org/m40.zip.torrent

This should download m40.zip via Bittorrent... The file size is 2966003 bytes...

If for some reason it doesn't work, you can download the zip file from the Opteron and use that to seed your Bittorrent client:

http://opteron.mersenneforum.org/m40.zip

I think it would be cool, as an experiment, if we could get 20 or more people to "sign on" as seeds and see how fast this works!

If you do decide to help, please post here...

Here is where you can download Bittorrent:

Here is an experimental client that allows bandwidth limiting...

Set it for dialup/ISDN and it uses only 8kbps...

Ok - i started leeching it 10 minutes ago and are seeding now. I try to keep the seed active for the next hours.

Mayor game sites use torrents a lot with success. Nice technology.

btw: i need one off these nice t-shirts

Okay, cool. I am downloading it now. I'll seed it from now on, with the rest of the files I seed.

I also added the metadata, so now it appears on my torrent page. Feel free to use the tracker for other Mersenne related data files.

The t-shirt can be had from http://www.thinkgeek.com/. Just to make sure you didn't think I sold them, I've talked to a lot of people that have had that impression.
