So, I’m basically a terminal user. If I could do everything from the terminal I wouldn’t bother with a DE. Anyway, out of the command line clients, rtorrent’s one I love!! I just read through the complete man page and learnt all the awesome options it has.

Here’s my .rtorrent.rc file: Read the man page to understand what I’ve done🙂

directory = ~/Downloads/torrents/
session = ~/Downloads/rtorrent_sessions/
upload_rate = 20
download_rate = 40
peer_exchange = yes
dht = auto
throttle_up = low,10
throttle_down = low,10
throttle_up = med,20
throttle_down = med,20

Probably a post on irssi next😉
