Re: Torrents mystifying and not seeded

Greetings --

On my persistent search for a working Debian testing iso, I'm trying
torrents from http://cdimage.debian.org/pub/weekly/torrents/i386/

Why are these iso images of different sizes?
debian-testing-i386-binary-12.iso is 642.24MB and
debian-testing-i386-binary-1.iso is 630.01MB. These are clearly
different iso images, but they have the same date stamp in the directory.

Along the same line, where are there 14 different torrents? The point of
torrents is to have as many as possible download the same torrent.
Distribution is maximally effective with one single torrent.

Neither of these torrents are seeded and the download is stuck.

I've spent six hours now trying to get a working Debian CD and have made
no headway.

Also FYI, I think most people use jigdo or jigdo-lite, not torrents. And you don't want testing, you want stable, unless you're making a non-production box.
