A quick one, but perhaps the funnier for it. What do you do when you don’t bother to check basic facts, or guidelines? Well, if you’re like one person, you go on a rant.

No-one else could get a word in…
Let’s just recap his points.
- Magnet files and selective downloading.
It’s always been that way. You’ll notice in this video from 2009 that utorrent also doesn’t allow you to select files right at the start. It’s the way it’s ALWAYS been.
- Files tab
It’s been the same way for at least 5 years. Sortable by path-name, completion, size etc. But still the same. It’s not magically new, and everyone else manages just fine.
- An hour to download a song
I’ve an idea what’s causing that, Bad Settings. It’s very common when you have people that think they know it all.
- Open Source
It’s never been open source, and probably never will be. It was a point one anti-P2P person made to the guy behind µTorrent 6 years ago saying “[16:38.01] <@fa> staying in till the source is public”
Basically, he’s complaining about things that have been unchanged in 5-6 years, and are standard with µTorrent, and acting like it’s all new. For all this, indy3 (whoever you are) is admitted into our Hall Of Morons!
