Hallelujah

It tooks literally weeks of back and forth and tons of help from friends (big ups to Love and Beats as well as Monsieur Moniker) but the torrent for the first file is available. For those that don't know what I'm talking about, Let me explain...

In the simplest terms, torrents are one of the easiest ways to share large files. The way it works, is you download torrent software. One of the leaders in the field is Bit Torrent and their software is really easy to use. Once you have that, the next step is to download a torrent file. The one I currently have going is Love and Beats' first set. So you download that file and then open it up in Bit Torrent. Bit Torrent will then search for everybody who has that torrent file open and download pieces of the file from their computers and assemble it when it's all done.

It's a great tool, because it allows for people to download very large files without one person racking up all the bandwidth charges. So after you download the file, keep the torrent open for as long as you can, so you can provide other Coup d'Taco listeners with music.

I can also check to see if people are downloading this way, which is nice. jon.dus' last set, which was distributed via You Send It, is another way. Tell me which way you prefer to download files and I'll focus on that way from now on.
