    1. How do I begin Downloading?
    2. What is DHT/PEX/LPD and why must I turn it off?
    3. Why did an active torrent suddenly disappear?
    4. How do I resume a broken download or reseed something?
    5. Why do my downloads sometimes stall at 99%?
    6. What are these "a piece has failed an hash check" messages?

      Bittorrent clients check the data they receive for integrity. When a piece fails this check it is automatically re-downloaded. Occasional hash fails are a common occurrence, and you shouldn't worry as they normally fix themselves.

      Some clients have an (advanced) option/preference to 'kick/ban clients that send you bad data' or similar. It should be turned on, since it makes sure that if a peer repeatedly sends you pieces that fail the hash check it will be ignored in the future.

    7. The torrent is supposed to be 500MB. How come I downloaded 520MB?
