I'm glad it helped AthlonXP1800
Keep in mind however, that 10KB will not be the magic number for everyone. 10KB is an extremely low upload limit for a T1 connection for example. In fact, usually the higher upload you allow, the higher download speeds you get. BUT, if you allow over 80% of your upload capacity, downloads will begin to suffer. The trick is finding the sweet spot for your connection.
Also, be aware that the Bittorrent community works best when everyone allows 80% of their upload capacity. If everyone only allowed 25%, then it would probably go a lot slower for everyone.
