If you still think of programming as which languages and libraries you know then you should pick an easier learning experience

Make it calculate all primes between one and two million then, starting with a chance of 1 in 1, give the user one unit of your currency for every prime found then put it on a loop and have the chance of getting the currency be 1 in <amount of currency owned>, if it returns false (i.e. no currency given) it should divide it by 2, down until 0.00001, and award that value or else just continue on to the next prime.

Unless he means that somehow whenever someone requesting the file is found on one tracker with no FL, the program begins downloading from the tracker with FL and passes the downloaded data to the leecher on tracker with no FL.

I guess that could save space in long run, but would probably have impact on the bandwidth and hurt your upload speed, especially if you plan to delete as soon as leeching is done and re-download on every seed.

You'd be banned in no time. Freeleech isn't there for you to eternally leech.

>I feel like you guys are being stupid

You're serving many different chunks to a multitude of peers. Your cache would be 100% of data on any active upload with 2+ leechers.

Well, at least something good has come from your life. Namely, that outstanding 10/10 post.

Personally, I put Linux on my laptop (not my main computer) so I could learn new skills in how to use it, plus I can pick and choose all the different distros and effectively be in a perpetual state of exposure to novelty and excitement.

I also don't like being monitored.

Like working from the command line and since I ssh into everything all day It works and feels better then windows. I have some macbooks I fixed and got for free and I hate them for some reason. Feels constrained as fuck and you need to yank their bash and install an upgraded one since mac hasnt updated theirs in fuck long.
