Ah, wonderful... I was hoping someone would ask this question.

Since I'm running sans-X I was wondering what my options were.

Tried ctorrent, but the UI was really confusing, and it didn't seem to 
upload (for me, I know it is supposed to).  Checked out the webpage and 
it explained what the numbers meant (and even admitted it was 
confusing).  It lacked (or seemed to lack) a timer saying how much time 
was left.

I tried the python client (btdownloadcurses.py) and it does a really 
decent job for a command-line utility.  The upload rate did seem really 
high in comparison w/ the download rate. (I was uploading at 2x the 
download speed)

Are there other non-X BT clients I should try?
