It can take a long time to download, but it all depends on various different things.

What type of connection you have
How many people are seeding the download
How large the download is

DVDs should only take a couple of minutes to download, right?

And then of course there's "the sensor." This is the hidden electronic unit on all electronic devices installed to frustrate the user. On a copier it is the device that senses the urgency/panic level of the user and causes the machine to jam appropriately.

With torrents, your computer senses how much you really want to listen/view the download, and adjusts the time accordingly. I have managed to outsmart the PC by downloading many torrents and then never listening to them. They all come in pretty quickly now that the PC senses my indifference. ;)

Patience, my friend. Patience.

I think I've been downloading Q+PR in New Jersey for 2+ days now. On Dime where you generally have more seeders, I got Q+PR in Yokohamoa about a day and have been seeding ever since

Cheers!

Whether or not anyone actually shot the video/recorded the audio . . .
