BitTorrent Seminar Blues …

BitTorrents … doesn’t that word have a nice ring to it ?
It does, if you ask me …
Okay, it does only to Broadband users with some unlimited plan …
Anyways, I have used and abused that protocol for months now …
Ever since BSNL dataone started and they had the mind numbing plan to give away unlimited internet … hehehe … 🙂
So, when Seminar time came ( something all us BE in Engineering people have to go through ), I chose BitTorrent …
C’mon … I’ve used it for months … I know all the settings … Its not much work …
Right ?
Wrong !!!
I had to slog my ass off … but it’s okay, because the topic turned out to be interesting …
So, 13 papers, hundreds of websites, 3 interviews, 1 webcast and 3 days of gruelling typing later, I finished my 30 page report on the damn thing …
I am so confident … that I already printed out the report without showing a rough copy to my seminar guide …
How this works out, only time will tell …
But, I have this radiant glow by this sense of achievement …
Anyways, have sat to do the presentation now …
And after spending a day doing the graphics at 800 x 600 for the ppt ( b’coz our college comps are kinda screwy and mess up at higher res ), I figured out that powerpoint backgrounds unstretched are at 1024 x 768 …
No matter what the display resolution …
Aaaahhhhh !!!!
Update 04-Jan-2010: Please stop asking me for the presentation / report. I am not going to give it to you.
Please stop being a lazy ass and do your own work!
I am putting up the bibliography below so you can get started, but I am not sharing the ppt with you. Putting your email address here is just going to make it that much easy for spambots to harvest them and spam you even more! (Not that you care, I’m sure!)
The ones without links are papers. You will need to google for it and download the pdf.
(I don’t have the links for them at this time). Also some links might not work as  this was 5 years ago!
