Default Bit Torrent ?! wtf Piece of Crap

Ok, im downloading a huge file off bit torrent and im uploading twice as much as downloading..

is there a way to cap my upload? cuz i cant do nothing at all and on top of that, its only at 17%, and uploading double my download speed, i dont even want to see what my download/upload will be at 99% cuz its friggan ridiculous!

The creator of bit torrent is like the creator of bonzi's buddys evil twin!
someone tell me how to cap upload speed, so i can like freaken surf the web without waiting 5mins for a freaken flash to load =(

A few tips for bit torrent:

1) Find a torrent link with a ton of available users.

2) Use a torrent link portal [link removed]

3) If you have to cancel the download, just close the window. BT will keep the file and resume where you left off (you have to allow it to save over, but it will just use that to check the existing file and continue).

4) Acknowledge that it is not a guarenteed speedy method. Its slow most of the time, but the file quality is excellent.
