Until then, you are stuck with everyone else that wants (contrary to former statements) what we paid for.

I remember installing games and waiting several hours for patches to download, this isn't taking much longer (yet).
where you dropped on your head as a baby? What we paid for was an account with star trek online, the right to use the program with said account, and along with our money and the security that they had customers already lined up we paid for the other pre-order items such as access to open beta. So no, getting my moneys worth does not involve waiting until feb 2, rocket scientist. And theres a big freaking difference between several hours of waiting and a FREAKING WEEK.

And we didn't have fancy dancy Gigahertz, either. Our computers ran at 4.77 Mhz, and we LIKED it. We had to use a 400 baud modem and had connect to Prodigy to get our porn, and it took 35 hours to download one picture and you couldn't use the phone the whole time, but we LIKED it, we liked it fine.

So don't worry about getting your downloads at 4000 kb/sec, try using a slow, antiquated, useless modem and complain about that, you whippersnapper.
your an idiot

I was dropped on my head as a baby, so what if my ma is a butterfingers?
I hope your flaming me makes you feel better, cuz it won't make your download run any faster. Just lighten up and relax a little. If want to insult me or family some more and feel like you're important or something, let me know and I'll tell you how to get in touch with me.

It's a JOKE, idiot! Get a sense of humor before you insult someone that is more sensitive than I am and actually cares about what you have to say.

Throughout the day my lovely fiance was kind enough to attempt to find a new DL somewhere and update me... after several other attempts i am stuck with the Torrent, which is at a whopping 23% after 7 hours.

Im not sure how some people were able to zip right through their DLs and many others were shafted. The internet is a strange place. To the guy with the three tips on the last page to make torrent faster, Thanks! It went from 23KBS to around 150KBS and sometimes bouncing to 350KBS.
My situation was similar. After a bit more than 16 hours, I was at 42%. It had said 8 hours remaining for close to 7 hours. Then, sometime after 3pm EST, Fileplanet disconnected me.

4. Pray your torrent client connects to some fast peers

I downloaded my client yesterday in about 4,5h , average speed 450kB/s
Could you expand on that? My ETA is now jumping between 1w+ and 3d6h.

This is my first time ever using BitTorrent, I downloaded it from the BitTorrent site itself. Where do I find DHT? It's not in Help or Options and the closest thing I see is a Speed Guide under Options that mentions nothing you did.

# 50 Update on speed...

I already downloaded 4Gb on Fileplanet, but got disconnected. Heavens knows how long to reconnect. thankfully the fileshack link went up.

Although I have to download the whole thing again, it'll be a lot quicker as it is coming in at a sweet minimum of 550kb/sec.

I'll be all excited when I wake up the morning...

Edit: Now sitting at 640kb/sec with no sign of slowing down, I feel like I have lucked out, fingers crossed the download is ok.
