Seb146: " I tried it again from a different user and it shut off as the loading began"
Your problem sounds familiar...I already checked the options menu for a 'shut down after download is complete' option. Try re-installing it and keep an eye out for it cuz I may have seen it there.
Ralgha, I can only tell you what I observed. As of my conclusion of 'backloading', it was the only thing that made sense even if it doesn't.
It was yesterday night, I was downloading "I get around" by 2pac, it was 2300/3400 kb and 6 mins left, I minimized the window [cuz I like my background -- it doesn't matter] then a minute later I go back to it and it say first "-0.00 kb/s" and then drops down and restarts at around 174kb at a rate of 0.34 kb/s!
I can understand that fewer sources mean fewer rates, but not the reverse downloading that I had witnessed, it was not even in the upload box, y'know? When it happened a few days ago, I was downloading "Stay Away" by Nirvana and I pre-viewed played it to about 2:40 of the 3 minute song, I left for class and when I came back an hour later it suddenly says about one-fifth downloaded. I was like WTF? That's why I thought of backloading, cuz there couldn’t be any other explanation, and I still don't get it.
The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.
