Torrents or video files Tour o' California

HELP! Stupid sister took TV to watch American Idol. EVERY FREAKING NIGHT.

Anybody hosting or know of some place that has the video coverage of the Tour of California?

I'd be happy to seed a torrent for a while if I could find one.

Seriously, I need a DVR , or a capture card or something. I'd rather blow my income on bike stuff though

I watched the TV in my dad's room tonight with headphones, spinning it around the other way to stop all the bright light. He was pretty pissed as you can imagine...

Awesome race though, especially since the coverage was a lot better.

Hey,

I have the whole week on my computer so far. They are scaled down to a sorta crappy resolution (I watch them on my windows mobile phone at work). And they are about 100mb per show. I would be happy to bittorrent them if someone could point me in the right direction to get it set up. I have downloaded stuff before but never created a bittorent feed.

-D

hey at least you can blame your sister. Me, I set up my DVD recorder for a delayed recording, then in the morning used the recorder to play a CD, and when I got home last night realized I had forgotten to put the recordable DVD back in!

so if anyone has it, I'd love to see the ESPN2 coverage of the Big Sur leg of the Tour.

First you have to make the torrent and download a program aptly name (you guessed it!) makeTorrent.
You can get that here:
http://krypt.dyndns.org:81/torrent/maketorrent/#dl

Then follow the instructions here to actual create the torrent:

http://btfaq.com/serve/cache/56.html

To put up a torrent to this website:

http://www.torrentspy.com/uploadtorrent.asp

and then fill in the info (I'd put it under TV -> Sports-Cycling).

I'd be happy to do this for you if you could get me the files somehow...I don't know about emailing something with an attatchment that size . Maybe Gmail would support it?

Tell us if you put it up and thanks a bundle,

Jonny
