  • Help Request: quickly load/download multiple torrents.
    Am interested in getting all/most of the epubs from this user.

    I came across this user's upload rather late.
    It is really painful to click each magnet (twice) to load it.
    (Twice bcos only then the file extension comes out right in my client)

    Any good options on doing a bulk get request ?

    This is all I could think of.
    I can wget the pages, grep out the hashes,
    Then how do I 'push' it into my torrent client.

    Alternatively, I thought I'd ask the uploader to post a torrent of all his .torrent files. But it is a reserve option.

    I have BitComet, utorrent (2.2.1) and Bittorrent.

    I don't know if I will ever read them all, but thought of a torrent going dead kills me. Hence the request.

    Thank you.

    PS: Still grieving the loss of my phone. If I could make a movie of this, I'd make my phone come alive and slowly, painfully, hauntingly kill the maniac that stole it. Grrrr.

    He has more than a thousand torrents posted.
    I suggest that you keep it simple, and just download the books that you are actually planning to read.
    Downloading a bunch of torrents just for the sake of downloading them is a pointless waste of effort and bandwidth.

    Thanks for the link by the way. I found a bunch of book torrents that interested me.

    BitComet is an old and rather shitty torrent client.
    I suggest that you ought to get rid of it, and stick with uTorrent.

    Thank you VF. I thought about it too. I'll do as you say. It is sane advice.
    I didn't know mohammed had > 1000 torrents !

    Am somewhat addicted to BC. Been using it for 4+ years. I chose it mainly bcos of the 'preview' feature which allows one to download the pieces in order. I understand it is bad torrenting practice. But it helped me to quickly check video quality before proceeding with full download. Also, it used to crash heavily in early days. Nowadays it is very stable.

    As you say, I'll try to make the switch gradually.
    Thank you :-)
