How are you figuring out how many Kb/S it is? I get the following
output, and I'm not seeing that indicated anywhere. In fact, I'm not
sure what most of this stuff is supposed to represent.

All I know is that an hour ago, doing a 

du -sh slackware

showed me that the slackware directory is 100 Mb in size. Now, an hour
later it is at 120 Mb in size, which really makes me feel like I'm on
dial-up. Besides that, web browsing reaffirms the dial-up feeling. It
seems like maybe this program should be called bittrickle, instead of
bittorrent (LOL)?
What I mean is that it seems to be saturating my up/down streams,
without showing much as a result if that makes sense.
