A "torrent" or a "bit torrent" is a type of meta-data that facilitates peer-to-peer filesharing. A torrent distributes data differently on many levels. Firstly, a torrent file is not the actual file being retrieved. The torrent file is merely data which has information about the file that the user is seeking. The torrent file is, in a sense, a sort of index of the file being retrieved. The torrent divides the target file into a series of equally sized pieces that are each assigned an identifying checksum. from ehow.com

A torrent is a peer to peer file sharing file that allows you to download a file from multiple users that also have that file, and all at the same time. A torrent does NOT download sequentially, as do typical file downloads..

Do you seed torrents?If you were to torrent your favourite movie (and of course you don't), would you seed until the ratio is at least 1:1 or is that too risky?
