Find All for Firefox somewhat alleviates crappy default Find functionality (Download Squad)

Four ways to start torrent downloads remotely (Download Squad)

Apr 20th 2009 1:26PM At my office, almost anything related to social networking, P2P, or filesharing is blocked so I had to find a solution that uses only e-mail.

I remembered that in the olden days when I used to use Eudora as a mail client it used to drop all of its attachments into a single folder whenever you opened an e-mail. So I downloaded Eudora 6.2 which is still available from their website, setup a gmail address, and configured Eudora to fetch any e-mail that comes to the torrent e-mail and then open it which drops the attachment (in this case the torrent file) into the attachment dir.

Now the trick is to configure your bittorrent client (in my case Azureus) to download any torrent file that's dropped into a certain dir and then configure Eudora to use that dir as its attachment dir.

So to download a torrent, all I have to do is send an e-mail to that gmail address with as many torrent files as I want to download and Azureus will download them on my home machine.

It's really much simpler than it seems!

waNOCAPS: Eliminate the scourge of caps lock (Download Squad)

Sep 16th 2006 1:37AM I'm a thinkpad user and the models I used didn't have a Windows key. So I converted my CAPS LOCK to a Windows key using a utility called SharpKeys from http://www.randyrants.com/sharpkeys.

Very convenient!
