    I found a torrent (not illegal!! a public domain text file, very rare for my thesis). But it simply will not download. What might I be doing wrong?

    Are there any seeders? I'm using 1.76 because anything newer than 1.76 refuses to work properly for a lot of Mac users.

    Specs:
    Late 2013 rMBP, i7, 750m gpu, OSX versions 10.9.3, 10.10
    I've got 1.82 on one and 1.75 on another, both are working for me, not sure if one is better then the other in terms of discovery tho, I have to take a torrent home to see if it works better on 1.75 (the updates DVD for for a debian 5 dist that I'm having trouble getting)

    But back on topic, i'd definitely see how many seeders there are - there might be only leechers, or it might be a torrent from a registered site (a tracker that requires registration and supplies torrents that are "keyed" to the login)
    My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Debian as a server; Apple TV (1080p version)

    little amount of seeders = slow download

    but it will download just give it like 30 mins and it should budge.
