FINAL EDIT : i ran into some trouble with this GA, i have to cancel it, there will be only one winner : CHAMP, thanks to all the applicants.
EDIT : 15 cycles is too much time to put into, too much different users so i decided to offer 4 members 15 days on the slot !
I'm doing a new GA on the same server that last time, i made some changes so the perfs should be improved
The first cycle should begin around the 23 th of March until the same date of May
This GA is for a slot on a 1Gbit OVH server.
The specs of the box :
Intel i7 920 4x 2x 2.66+ GHz
12 Go DDR 3
2 x 1000 Go
1 Gbps connection
Bandwith : Internet - OVH = 1 Gbit
OVH -Internet = 200 Mbit
OVH-OVH = 1 Gbit
This server is shared beetween 8 people including you, so you can expect very good speeds ( i reached 50 Mbytes/s upload on SCC ).
The number of active torrents is unlimeted.
Each member will have the box access for 4 days.
VNC access will be provided as well as utorrent WebUI access and FTP.
Considering the requirements, post everything you deem necessary to convice me : ratioproofs, proof of a low speed connection....
User rep and numbers of igivers will be decisive but i'll let new members a chance.
I'll annouce here the winners starting around the 18 th.
There is a number of things you are not allowed to do once given the box access :
- Using more than 200 GB
- Change any passwords
1 st winner : CHAMP
Edit : here is a little guide in order to use the box correctly.
First, i'm going to do a little list of do's and don'ts if you want to seed a maximum
1/ Don't let partial seeders or partial leechers ( whatever you want to call it ) fool you.
2/ Don't download old torrents or don't download anything else than recent torrents and when i mean recent i mean an hour old torrent is already too old.
3/ Don't load two big ( i mean 40 or more Gb ) torrents at the same time.
4/ Erase immediatly torrents that have only a few leechers, all you'll have is a torrent that'll peak at 100 kb/s and that will prevent the hot ones to reach their maximum.
5/ When you're loading an 60 Gb SCC torrent ( for example ), pause all your other torrents your box won't be able to download at 40-50 Mb/s, upload at 20 Mb/s and seed all your other torrents at the same time..
6/ In fact, what i recommend for SCC is to partial seed only, you'll see, even if you have the space to store a 80 Gb torrent, you'll do better by downloading 20 Gb and partial seeding it.
I'll update this little guide when i have the time.
