Tapping TSKB: uTorrent NOW working...
« on: September 10, 2015, 06:35:38 PM »
http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=539406

So I was bored last night and was looking to dl some older show that would be fun to "re-live" and found this torrent on Dime of a 1970 Zep concert that seemed to have promise.  At the time there were 150+ seeders so I figured it would just pour in. 

Not so.  Nothing connects so nothing flows.

I've used uTorrent for the past few years, updating it more or less on schedule and have successfully pulled a few file sets with what I think is my current set up.

I've really not change anything... I don't think.  I'm annoyed with the active advertising they've incorporated into the free version but what can you do? 

Is there an easy way to check settings that would effectively prevent uTorrent from finding the seeds? 

I'm running v.3.4.4 build 40911/32bit

My next move will be to un, then re, install it.

Thanks in advance. (sorry if this has been hashed over before)

Can't help with your current no-connect issue but highly recommend that if you uninstall you go back to 2.2.1 which still works well and has no advertising.

Oh, that link to that Zeppelin show in '70?  It has all the signifigance of T. Edison's first recorded words to his assistant. "WTF, does this thing work?"  Painful to listen to by today's standards.

At least I got the torrent to run.  ::)

Ben,
this is a pretty good quality recording of 1969 LZ: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78tJGuNYMMU

This is the complete set audio, no video.
music IS love

When you get confused, listen to the music play!

ahhhhh, indeed an immense sonic improvement.  Thanks for that link.

I know that "period" live field recordings suffered from the quality of available technology, but I personally don't have a lot of time to spend on getting all nostalgic about how far things have come.  Don't get me wrong, I fully appreciate a great quality period recording, it's just that particular source/date wasn't captured especially well.

I guess I started this game way too late to personally appreciate the full progression...  I'm old enough that had I grown up in a more music rich part of the country, not northwest F'n Iowa, I might have been one of the early heads on tour with The GD, running CP-4s into a nak tape deck or early DAT...  On the other hand, if I had been I likely wouldn't be able to enjoy the sport as I do today. When would a guy have time for school/job/life?  ;D

LOL. I am one of those guys and I have stayed with this hobby even though most of my taping buddies have long since "retired".
If you are really interested in high Quality Zep, PM me, my current taping buddy has a very extensive LZ live recordings in his collection. Maybe we can get you some of them.

Ah, a dinosaur!  ;D

I wasn't especially looking for anything in particular, Zep or otherwise.  I just was browsing the torrents on Dime and picked that one as it had lots of seeds. 

I'd for sure enjoy a show or two, and you're kind to offer. I'm not looking to build a huge Zep collection but I do like good representative file set or two of any band "from the old days".

Now a few early 70's shows from The Village Vanguard, that's a collection to shoot for! >:D
