    A torrent? Like a flood? That kind of torrent? Can you use the word in a sentence? A torrent of questions? Like these questions? Would that still basically be considered a flood? A torrent of mail? Does that mean you are popular? Wait, isn't that still a flood? Can anybody help us? Do you know what a torrent is?

    (We don't need a torrent of answers, so don't all answer at once.)

    see... i made myself look like a bigger idiot now because I had a big brain fart and totally forgot that the word has other meanings not related to the internet.

    I followed this link to Disney Central Torrents... and i have no idea what that is.

    its like a sound file i think
    Life isn't about the destination, everybody gets to that. It is about the journey.

    Ok, it is a bit complicated but basically it is a file that connects you to a series of files or a single file (usually music or videos) that is distributed among multiple people and allows you to download it. Basically what you are doing is dowloading different pieces of the files from different people at the same time, kind of like taking different pieces of a puzzle and putting them together and then in the end you have the file(s).

    You can use a program like BitComet or BitTornado in order to access the torrents and use sites such as www.torrentspy.com or www.torrentreactor.net to find torrents.
