I just tried installing the latest uTorrent, version 3.2.3. It didn't do any uploading; it couldn't establish any connections. So I had to retreat again to version 3.2.0.
They sure lard up the installer with cruft. No, I don't want your browser tool bar, nor do I want RealPlayer anywhere near my computer. I understand why they do this; it's a source of revenue, and since I'm using the free version, I can't really complain.
Well, yeah I can. But I shouldn't. And at least I'll give them credit: when I say I don't want it, they don't install it. There was one package I got a while back where I told it "no" and it went ahead and installed things anyway. Took me a couple of hours to find and remove all the trash.
I've been noticing that nearly every day about my dinner time, BakaBT's performance goes to hell for a couple of hours. Most of my torrents announce "unable to access the tracker" and I can't load the BakaBT web page. I mailed one of the mods to ask if they were considering a server upgrade, and he told me that was when they did backups, most days. So I guess that makes sense, but usually backups don't bring a system to its knees that way.
UPDATE: 1915 PST and it's wedged.
