UPDATE: Windows Update is now complete. And I think I've decrufted enough for the time being. It's time to download uTorrent.

UPDATE: Dammit. I told uTorrent's installer that I didn't want their toolbar in IE, and they installed it anyway.

UPDATE: I need Firefox.

UPDATE: I need for Firefox to not slide out a "download complete" notification at the lower left corner of the screen when I get a torrent file. How do I make it not do that?

UPDATE: uTorrent 313 only calculates the hash on one torrent at a time, and it only uses one CPU thread to do so. And it only uses about half of that one. I suspect it's limited by the rate that it can read the files from Deneb, which is where they're all stored.

But I can start a whole bunch of torrents, and it'll hash them in turn. Which is good enough; it means I don't have to babysit the thing and start each one only after the previous one is complete.

They made a bunch of changes to the UI. Again. I don't like how it looks. It may be possible to get the older version, but for the moment I'll live with it.
