I'm a new Deluge user and wanted to give back a bit to the community by seeding some FOSS torrents.
I have been seeding 3 popular torrents for around 11 hours, RaspberryPi Noobs, raspian-wheezy and Ubuntu 14.10 desktop and each has uploaded 98MB, 4MB and 11MB respectively. 99% of the time, there is simply no upload activity and when there is occasional activity, it's only like 10-20KB/s.
I've had a look though some thread online about similar symptoms and tried changing the various network/bandwidth/queue settings but nothing seems to really help.
Am I doing something wrong or is this normal behaviour for seeding torrents?submitted by MrRiddell

Starting a new project as open source feels like the simplest thing in the world. You just take the minimally working thing you wrote, slap on a license file, and push the repo to Github. The difficult bit is creating and maintaining a community that ensures long term continuity of the project, especially as some contributors leave and new ones enter. But getting the code out in a way that could be useful to others is easy.

Axiomtek’s “PICO840″ Pico-ITX SBC features a quad- or dual-core Intel Atom, and offers multiple video ports, plus GbE, SATA, serial, USB, and Mini-PCIe I/O.
The PICO840 is a lower-powered, but more energy efficient alternative to the similarly Pico-ITX based PICO880 single board computer, which runs on a 4th Gen Intel Core processor. The 100 x 72mm PICO840 is said to support PoS systems, mobile medical monitors, compact panel PCs, and other embedded systems with tight space constraints. No OS support was mentioned, but we are confident the PICO840 runs Linux.
