Generic / Re: Connections limits

I have a 300/40 line. Downloading at max especially if the number of torrents is larger already sees a massive benefit of using a ssd for unfinished torrents. No you wont wear out your ssd any time soon. One of the hw review sites ran a benchmark last year and even a 500GB samsung evo 840 with 2d tlc flash (basically the worst regarding endurance) started showing some relocated sectors only after 300 TB of writes, and died around 600 TB. If you have anything more modern and larger with 3d tlc (vnand) like an 1tb evo 860 it'll last at least 3 to 4 times more, and the very best ssds will reach 9PB or more. It's a total non issue. Especially with current ssd prices making them so affordable. Also if you are using a cow filesystem (btrfs/zfs) turn off cow for the unfinished torrents folder. Finally since you probably can't afford a few 4TB ssds in raid10 you can use dm-cache to set up a ssd as a front cache for your hdd(s). That way the most commonly used data will be in memory, second most common on the ssd and the rest on hdd(s).

Generic / ipv6 configuration still broken in advanced options

The description says 'Listen on ipv6 address (requires restart)' now most people would interpret this as listen on ipv4 and ipv6. But it's not what it does. It means that it listens on just ipv6. Selecting the network interface and setting optional ip addresses to bind to all addresses actually makes it listen on all ipv4 and ipv6 addresses of this device.

Why not rename these options to make them more unambiguous for most people?

Like a 'listen on ipv4 only', 'listen on ipv6 only', 'listen on ipv4 and ipv6' drop down box*

So much this. And it's not just any captcha it's google's spyware recaptcha that uses you to train their ai so they can even better mine your data.

I'd rather have the porn adds.

You have to unblock all of google's garbage spyware for this site to even work. Can't you turn it off. I'd prefer the Viagra spam bots to google spyware.

Just set your kde system theme to something dark and qbittorrent will be dark (or light or whatever the theme looks like).
