I'm sure everybody out there who use Bit Torrent is aware that being connectable is highly recommended for best speeds and the general well being of the "swarm". For the unfortunate few who aren't, connectability is where you open an incoming port on your computer thereby allowing other peers in the Bit Torrent swarm to be able to contact you. It is however only required for one of the parties (connector or connectee) to be connectable for a connection to be made.
I just finished watching the first episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Wow! The acting was so bad (and the story line wasn't much better :S) that I'm going to be getting the rest of it :D
All seven seasons of it - about 55GBs worth ;)

Azureus is definitely one of the more popular torrent clients out there, and it just became a lot cooler in my eyes: I finally explored the LAN peering plug-in that it is packaged with. This is way beyond cool and accomplishes the equivalent of link bonding using torrents. So, essentially, consider the following scenario:
- You have two PCs on your local network.
- You have two Internet connections (both 1Mbps, for e.g.), one for each PC.
First time I've actually heard him speak. This is presumably from his movie "The great dictator" which I haven't yet seen.
I was asked by some dude online today as to what the difference was between typing
cmd in the Start -> Run menu. To repeat my answer to him:
commandis basically the 16-bit command-line interface. It is essentially a legacy application.
cmd, on the other hand is the 32-bit CLI, and is comparatively modern and more user friendly.
