I have been seeding it since the release day or so, as I did for the last couple/few versions, and after re-upgrading to 14.1 on my desktop (next, after finally solving problems I had on it and my laptop, surely of my own fault, because I finally got 14.1 working fine on my laptop) I aim to leave it seeded continuously until I have downloaded the next version's torrent.
Just realized that I hit the 1TB mark this night for all my Slackware seeds, seeding the DVDs from 14.0 and 14.1. The fun fact is that this seed box only runs since 84 days ago.
Now let anyone tell you that Slackware is dead.

No, I'm back now to not seeding. Transmission just ceased uploading for some reason, got to about 61gb then stopped. The daemon was running, the torrent was running, just nothing going up. Tried re-installing but no joy.
Switched back to rtorrent and went back to the 'not authorised' message. Switched to ctorrent (the newer one from eric), same message.
Is that combined with the 32 and 64 bit versions? Combined I'm at roughly 625GB as well, but the uploads seem to be trickling... remember 14.0 having a lot more uploads.
Yes, it is combined, 32 bit, 64 bit and the sources DVD. I am not seeding the CDs. I have not seeded 14.0 from the beginning, but when I look at the time-scales for my seeds it seems to me that there is not much difference between 14.0 and 14.1.
Thread Are we there, yet? seems to show some interest that a new release is not to far off.
I would like to take this opportunity to suggest that once a rc is made available then we must help Slackware sites by starting to reseed again. A new release would be dependent on the state of necessary changes/feedback.
So a gentle reminder that we should be prepared to start reseeding once the candidate is released.
