I should go look this up, but does bittorrent involve downloading and
installing some dodgy client software that's full of spyware, means you
have to open all sorts of ports through the firewall, lets others see
the contents of your hard drives etc. etc. ?

Presumably not as it seems to be adopted by intelligent people (rather
than the warez brigade)... maybe I'm just getting old and all this new-
fangled technology scares me :-)
