Trying Out BitTorrent

I finally got a reason to try out BitTorrent. I used it to download the first Slackware 9.1 ISO. It took longer than it would have from a fast mirror, but it was still pretty fast, given that it had just come out. My only problem with it was getting wxPython to install properly. Here's a hint: don't just do the standard ./configure;make;make install. Read the README.1st.txt file and follow the instructions. You'll thank me later.
