    3333                                                <p>You'll need to download a torrent file (extension .torrent). These are commonly found at <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BitTorrent_tracker">'tracker' websites</a>. Torrent files contain information about the actual file you want to download (eg a movie).
    34                                                 <p>Once you have the torrent file, open it in Transmission. You can also set Transmission to watch for torrent files and then open them automatically via Preferences >> Transfers >> General.
    35                                                 <p>It is good etiquette to 'seed' the file for a while (ie leave it uploading) once your download is complete. You can set a default ratio to automatically seed to, and then pause. This can be adjusted in Preferences >> Transfers >> Management, or in real time using the Action menu. </p>
     34                                                <p>Once you have the torrent file, open it in Transmission - downloading should start immediately. Transmission can even watch for torrent files and then open them automatically via Preferences >> Transfers >> General.
     35                                                <p>You can pause and resume transfers at any time, so long as the files remain in your download folder. If you remove a transfer, in order to resume it you will need to reopen the original torrent file in Transmission.
     36                                                <p>It is good etiquette to share or 'seed' the file for a while (ie leave it uploading) once your download is complete. You can set a default ratio to automatically seed to, and then pause. This can be adjusted in Preferences >> Transfers >> Management, or in real time using the Action menu. </p>
