rtorrent: Needs no introduction … again

Since I’m on to tools that everyone knows and are quite popular, I might as well throw rtorrent into the mix.


By most accounts it’s the program that I had no real part in developing, but seemed to bring me a lot of attention. It’s hardly fair, and I should probably apologize for riding its coattails.

In my lowly opinion, of course. 😉

So again, I won’t waste your time by fawning over rtorrent ad nauseum. And I won’t waste my time writing about something that I’ve fawned over ad nauseum already. Again, and again, and again. … 😯
