What's going on with this torrent?

Asked by XOIIO (18251points) February 1st, 2011

I am downloading a torrent of BackTrack because it is more reliable to DL 2 gigs with utorrent than IE. The thing is that it says -188 peers.

How is this possible?

Hi XOIIO, I don’t really understand what your query is. I often have torrents with over 300 peers there are a lot of people connected to the internet.

Anyhow why are you bothering to download BackTrack via a torrent ? Do you know you can download it directly from the website at pretty awesome speeds ? I was getting 900kb/ps (30min download)

If you afraid of being disconnected during the 30 min download just use a download manager so you can resume it again.
ps IE sucks hard dude, use opera or firefox :)

@Odysseus It’s because I might have to rebbot my computer, I was grabbing some updates.

Firefox is a hude resource hog, If you know how to use IE it’s a charm.

Basically the question was that I was wondering how a torrent can have negative 188 leechers. I have never seen any negative number in that section before.

Sounds like a bug to me.
