@grafton9 how big is the entire archive?
@rra should be ~20GB
is made by processed images and derivation (epub, ocr, etc) made automatically by internet archive.
the original scans (tiffs or dng images) are about ~1.5 TB, atm are kept offline
@grafton9 cool, I'll be able to seed it then!
@grafton9 I'm not sure anyone else is seeding them, most are stuck at 0%
@rra i've tried some of them now and they are working (2~3 seeds). they are still stalled in your client?
@grafton9 yep most is still at 0% and a few < 100%. Its a seedbox so connectivity shouldn't be an issue.
"Our Torrents rely heavily on webseeding (download directly from our servers, when no peers have the files you are seeking). Some BitTorrent clients (e.g. rTorrent) do not support Getright-style webseeding, and will not be able to download un-seeded Internet Archive Torrents.
At the moment, the only solution to this problem is to use a different client."
guess who is using rtorrent
