I've downloaded everything from Astronomy Picture of the Day from the start date to the end of 2019 and put it in a torrent.

If you want a load of background pictures, please seed it once you've got a copy.

Please boost and share

@xmakina hi there! I've been trying to download this off and on for a few weeks and I haven't been able to connect. is the torrent still up? I'd like to download it to help seed if possible

@averyfinecat yep, everything looks fine my end, it's uploaded about 5GB so far though so there might be something wrong, will investigate

@averyfinecat have checked and everything looks fine, I'm not sure what's happening. I'm going to run utorrent on my machine, I can see that already actively uploading so there's definitely something wonky on my deluge box, thanks for the heads up!

@xmakina looks like you fixed it, it's downloading now, thanks!

@xmakina or at least it was for a moment, now it says it's stalled again. I'm gonna check back in in a few hours and see

@xmakina update a few hours later: it's progressed from 0.2% to 0.3%, and continues to read the status as "Stalled". Could it just be that someone else is in line in front of me?
