Bit Torrent

I decided to download Fedora Core 2 test 2 today.  But  I didn't want
it to take all day, and I didn't want to  deal with finding a fast
mirror.  So I installed Bit Torrent.  

I had heard good things about bit torrent from various people, but I
was still really impressed by how fast the files came down.
[Obviously, having lots of bandwidth helps.]  If you haven't used it,
and you have a fast pipe, I highly recomment you look into it.  I
managed to download all four of the Fedora ISOs in just over 1hr
15min...  Screen shot (3K) attached.  :)
