OK, so years later, I finally forced myself to look it up. Thanks to www.us-webmasters.com/FreeBSD/Tips-Hints-Tricks/ How-to-Find-Files-and-Directories-on-FreeBSD, I learned that there are three ways (so far that they and I know of) to search for a file or directory in BSD. Here are the three ways:
locate command is good for finding files and directories. Enter something similar to:
locate someprogram | more
- If that doesn’t work, perhaps try the
whereis someprogram | more
find / -name "someprogram*"
Torrentflux is an amazingly easy program to install. I cd’d over to /usr/ports/net-p2p/torrenflux and did “make install clean”. I’m pretty sure I did the defaults, along the way. Then go to your /usr/local/www/data (or similar directory) and you should have a “tf” directory in there. Everything works pretty intuitively. I’ve used ctorrent for a couple of years, and I love it, especially when combined with “screen”. But I wanted something that would show all of my torrents upload/dl at a glance.
Found out where Torrentflux is keeping my downloaded files: /usr/local/share/torrentflux/data/username/*. That’s it. I’m running FreeBSD 6.1 stable and that’s it. Mystery solved.
Also, http://btjunkie.org/ seems to have a large pool of television shows and music.? More than Mininova.org, as far as I can tell.
http://www.openproxies.com/ is a site that shows some tested proxies.? If you pay to become a member, you can get a list of faster proxies.
Here is a link that claims to have a solution to integrating logins for websites that use multiple logins.? For instance, it would be great if I could integrate my WordPress, Gallery2, and other modules for this site.
Patrick just called me and reported that he can see a little snow up on Timp.? He just sent me a pic on my phone, but I can’t see what he says is snow.

Add this to your /boot/loader.conf
Thanks to http://www.bsdforums.org/forums/showthread.php?t=41549&goto=nextoldest, I figured out how to mount my ipod on my FreeBSD laptop.? I created a directory called /mnt/ipod, then ran? “mount_msdosfs /dev/da0s2 /mnt/ipod”? BAM!? It works.
