The theory of bittorrent downloading

Well, everyone knows:

  • The more seeds, the better right
  • The longer you wait the less seeds there’ll be

So what do you do when you need lost episode 17 and lost episode 18, assuming you can only download one after another, considering that you can only start downloading the 2nd one after a different download is complete?

Suppose the downloading rate for episode 17 is 20KB/s and, the rate for episode 18 is 100KB/s.

In my opinon, you should download episode 18, until the speed reduces itself to 20KB/s then stop it and download episode 17.

really cool geeky stuff
