what do you mean with "seed properly" and why only seed it properly in the future? will you first seed it inproperly?[/quote:6l5ukbhs] As Arthur said – he was talking about torrents. They are a special type of P2P download. To "seed" a torrent is to upload the file. You seed when you first create the file, but also as you’re downloading it – you send up the data that you’ve downloaded. It’s just a system to make downloads faster for people. (There’s also leeching, where you download without seeding.)
Torrents are more common with larger file sizes – such as high quality album copies, huge photo collections etc.
