    Considering isp's track and will limit your bandwith if you are using torrents, I think newsgroups are the way to go. In every case newsgroups have always been extreamly faster for me.

    If I might add my 2 cents, an uncompressed torrent would be the ideal method, so that items of interest can be downloaded individually.

    Most people don't have access to a newsgroup service, though, and aren't about to pay for it.

    It's obvious that some form of p2p is going to be used. A torrent is the most obvious, and the least hassle for all concerned.

    I agree. At the risk of sounding repetitive, a torrent seedbox is the way to go. Unlimited bandwith for uploading = huge win if you huge amounts of data to upload to numerous peers.

    Individually compressed files=best method. Why waste space and bandwidth on something that can be compressed to 1/3rd its size?

    Shuttling it to Usenet would be a good way to guarantee it'll be around for at least 90 days, 180 or more for providers that keep it up that long.

    and before you totally loose with µtorrent, then you install peerblock, and µpdater-µtorrent plus you enable protocol encryption in µtorrent, or force it depending on the state of your paranoia.

    My Dreamhost webspace has unlimited space and unlimited bandwidth if that helps. Might take a while to do the initial upload though!

    Do you have a direct link on utorrent's site to this version? The only one I can find there is an installable which includes stupid crap like a browser tool bar and some movie executable that I have to opt out of...

    And I need to run it on a machine I don't have admin rights on...

    Or any other recommendations for torrent software that doesn't require installation?
