Hello to everyone,
and a big THANK YOU to The Shadow for all the entertainment I have had from using your 'BitTornado' program throughout the years.
Keep up the good work.
If you were ever over my way I would buy you a pint.
I am just curious to know has there been any thoughts on the new 'Magnet Links' which seem to be the way things are going at this time.
Here is a link explaining what I am talking about for those of you scratching your heads:
news.softpedia.com/news/BitTorrent-Magnet-Links-Explained-132536.
And for a more technical read:
wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnet_URI_scheme.
It would be good to get an idea on what the main man himself thinks and also a general idea on others thoughts about it.

Bye the way...
I have had a quick rummage around the forum and it looks like it could do with a bit of a spring clean in some areas (due to some foul mouthed pigs being let in at the door).
There should be nothing but respect for one another round these parts.

If I ever get the free time to start coding again, magnet links will be one of the new things added. It's a bit more complex than you may think; the metadata has to be fetched from other peers instead of being embedded in the torrent file, which means also implementing a protocol extension that performs this...

As for the condition of the forum, I have a "thing" against censorship. I'd prefer not to delete messages, unless they're worthless spam.

Thanks for the reply.
Understood.
Here's to you finding the time in the future so.
If you find yourself loosing time (ie:money) with the next coding job,stick up a 'Paypal' link
so as I/we can help you out a bit for a job well done.
As I have a "thing" with advertising banners and hate to click or see them. :D
Talk again soon my friend.
