I tried the tracker from the kernel.org site just minutes ago using the
After a couple minutes, my stats looked like:
Leechers: 10 (125) Average Up Speed: 2.1 KB/s
Seeders: 40 (900) Average Down Speed: 560.7 KB/s
I blew off the d/l 'cause I already have a DVD but that would work out
to a bit less that 2 hours for the DVD image. That's pretty much wide

gives a lot of network information. I have both bookmarked.
