Bittorrent explained with Humpty Dumpty

//Bittorrent explained with Humpty Dumpty

Read this, for whether or not you know – you need it. Now I’ll tell you why. BitTorrent – a contemporary protocol for file sharing that me and you and that one neighbor your really hate — who drills all day and rocks all night — totally need.

Perhaps you have heard about it but never got to using it. If that’s your story – it’s time to learn more.

What’s in it for you?

Imagine your favorite film. No matter what it is! If you want to spend an enjoyable evening watching it – you need to download a file. But big file sharing websites have some equally big restrictions. For example – if you and a thousand different people want to enjoy it (Especially that neighbor who wouldn’t stop drilling!) at the same time – downloading directly can fail. You and all of the people who want to watch it have to wait or go do something else. Maybe in these dark times you will meet the love of your life, but what if not?

This unfortunate situation has been our reality for most of internet-history. But times are changing. In 2001 programmer Bram Cohen made the first peer-to-peer file sharing protocol, making it theoretically possible – for the popular files to be faster instead of slower. It was still a prototype, but also a precursor for what’s to come.

How does it work?

What doesBitTorrent do? Imagine the same film – the one we talked about earlier. Technically it is a file and it has a size. In the past – you had to download all this information from the same source. And if you have had any problems – you needed to start again. What is the difference?BitTorrent has a plan for you and your file. Your computer can take your film from many computers worldwide by little parts, one after the other. Next it puts them together – and you have your movie for the evening without trying too hard.

Bittorrent Humpty Dumpty piece back together

BitTorrent can piece him back together (:

Your file is now like Humpty Dumpty but you don’t need all the king’s horses and all the kings’ men – just a computer – do you remember? – there is a plan

At the same time you give a little back – your computer shares some small parts of the file you downloaded with others. And in this manner all of the network users become a source for all other users. If some some go offline or fail – no problem – there are many others waiting to share with you.

In BitTorrent – True power lies with the users. They keep the network fast, share advice, and always helpful with questions – whether technical or not. Help comes before You can say Jack Robinson. This is a community – One advantage BitTorrent has.

Before BitTorrent you were left guessing – what files are safe? how can I make this work faster? Now answers are openly available – and even some new ideas. Feel the difference.
