Default Torrent/FLAC easy to understand guide

With the new tour and open-taping policy, I figure we'll be seeing alot more torrents, and more people will want them.

Here is an awesome Bittorrent FAQ:
http://dessent.net/btfaq/

FLAC files:

All around awesome program: http://thor.prohosting.com/roh0205/

You can play them with:
Foobar2000 (www.foobar2000.org, my choice)
Winamp (www.winamp.com, with plugin)
iTunes (with this mod: http://playlistmag.com/news/2006/07/11/ogg/index.php)

You can convert with:
Foobar2000 (have the LAME mp3 codec installed for best results, if making mp3)
Flac frontend (flac.sf.net)

MAC USERS:
use this: http://sbooth.org/Max/

remember, most tapers don't want you to make mp3s of their shows, except for personal use (your ipod, etc). You should never make mp3 files of a show and put them online unless the taper gives you explicit permission to do so.
