So you're saying the release of the new version (1.7) has an effect on
our effectiveness on the old version (1.6.1)? (All our testing was done
on the old version)

The new version of utorrent will hurt interdiction. I am working on a
patch to help alleviate that. But it has a very serious impact, even if
testing with an older version.


Also, Ivan's source collector is having trouble getting banned from a
lot of trackers. So many torrents don't have any sources for me to

Here are our interdiction results for the Ne-Yo UMG album. There's 2
days of from yesterday (before your patch) and one from
today. Seems like the patch helped a little bit, but not enough.
Yesterday 14 out 17 interdicted torrents completed w/in 2 hours and
today, there were 9 out of 17. So it still seems our interdiction is
really weak. Most of the times our IPs are just not getting into the
swarm, and sometimes even when our IPs get in, it doesn't stop the DL.
