    I don't. I'd rather download one file at a time.
    I don't know why, preference I guess.

    Yes, but I do tend to put priority on files too.

    It depends. If I'm downloading on a source with limited download speed, yes.

    It kinda depends. If my computer is running really slow, I would only download one file at a time.

    It really depends if I'm in a rush for that one file or not. If I'm not, and I'm after multiple files, I'll just download them all at once.

    It really depends on what I'm downloading at the time. Normally I download multiple files, but if I really want/need one of the files then I'll pause/stop the others to get that file. I also tend to do that with anime torrents, cause I like to haveone full episode that I can watch while downloading the others than to have 13 50% episodes that I can do nothing with yet xD

    Yes, I don't like waiting for the download to finish.

    It depends. If I'm going to be away from the computer for quite some time, then yeah, so by the time I get back all my files are done downloading.

    I do it. Just because I prefer clicking all download links at once and then do other stuff (and I don't have to worry about forgetting any links) than clicking one at a time and once every so often forget about one...

    Yes, There are never enough NDS/PSP games to download!!! [​IMG] I also use torrentz, but it's a pain when there are almost no seeders.

    Well yeah, It depends, If I want more files and I see that 1 file isnt reaching max download speed, I stack another on top to speed things up.

    what those things are I'm keeping to myself................................... [​IMG]

    I download multiple files. It just seems most of the time downloading multiple files is just faster for me.

    I suppose. If I want something now I'll download just that, but if I can wait I'll download however much I want.
