Well, if you downloaded it from the torrent, the number of people
downloading it should _increase_ the bandwidth you get.

When I first started downloading it, it said it'd take 2.5hrs.
A couple minutes later, I looked and was apparently getting 190KB/s
(I never usually see higher than 150 or 160 doing plain DLs),
and it was going to finish in 8 minutes.  By then I had connected
to 18... no wait, 19... other people.
