Except I didn't and don't, though. Sorry, but I was there, and the torrent downloaded fine, while I was still using the PC. It took days; it's not like issues wouldn't have been obvious. Current versions of uTorrent 3.x.x tend to CRASH when you download extreme torrents, FFS, as witnessed by many posts on uTorrent's fora, as well as the necessity to post "optimized setups" for users to avoid the issue. Excuse me? They couldn't have that setup as the default, FFS? Nice!
Older versions of uTorrent may have encountered the same problem, but they didn't completely choke themselves or the entire PC, if so. That behavior has NOT improved since then, and in fact is still worse than 2.2.1.
Whatever. They've done little to fix the problem, and there's no excuse.
