Thanks for your willingness to extend the hand of help. I have already watched your videos on youtube.com, i really appreciate the spirit of selfless assistance to the whole world that you are one of its leaders in Chess. I am a player on chess.com, my rate is at 1800x1800 high, although I have never studied chess. I am willing to start if you are kind to send me pdfs of the books or links to them. Thanks in anticipation. Wish you would put me against a grandmaster when I confirm that I am ready.
Wing Chun grandmaster Ip Man (Tony Leung) reflects on the nature of martial arts as he battles a dozen combatants during a rainstorm in Foshan. Ip wins and experiences flashbacks of his life, from his early training at the age of seven, to his induction into Wing Chun by his master, Chan Wah-shun (Yuen Woo-Ping), and his marriage to Cheung Wing-sing (Song Hye-Kyo).
Ip Man's peaceful existence is threatened by the arrival of Gong Yutian (Wang Qing Xiang), the Wudangquan martial arts grandmaster from northern China, who announces that he has already retired and appointed Ma San (Zhang Jin) as his heir in the North. He then concedes that the South should have its own heir. A fight erupts as various masters attempt to challenge Gong, but they are deterred by Ma San. As the Southern masters deliberate on a representative, Gong Yutian's daughter Gong Er (Zhang Ziyi) arrives and tries to convince her father not to continue the fight, as she feels the Southern masters are unworthy. Meanwhile, the Southern masters decide on Ip Man to represent them, and Ip proceeds to be tested by three Southern masters before he challenges Gong Yutian.
Aron Nimzowitsch's work is the prime example of a classic chess book. It has consistently remained in the top five best-selling chess books of all time, and has been a recommendation of grandmasters and trainers since 1925! This was one of the first works to be considered a handbook for positional chess, and it does a great job of introducing very important positional ideas (e.g. prophylaxis, pawn chains, blockading passed pawns, utilizing the center, etc.).
I'm assuming you left your utorrent with the default settings. This means that the torrent will not be officially "finished" until it has a ratio 1.5, meaning you have seeded all you have download, plus 50%.
But I think its good to give back 1.5 as long as you have the bandwidth and it doesnt kill your network. Some torrent sites actually have it as a requirement that you do at least 1.0 otherwise they kick you off the site. These keeps people from leeching
Also, to your question about how long seeding should take, it actually varies between different torrents. There is no truly definite time that every seeding torrent must follow. So... just wait till the ratio's 1.5 and I think that'll be it. As debigG rightfully says, it is good to give back to the community! And, if I'm not wrong, the download speed will increase too!

Chichi-9 - uTorrent is a data file mover. And that is all. What you download may or may not affect the performance of your computer - when you install it. It may or may not be valid software. It may or may not have a virus. That is the chance you take when you download copyright software, etc. and put it on your computer. There is NO way for anyone here to guess what will happen to your computer when you install software downloaded from the web. There is no way (unless someone here has already installed that specific software - and I mean by downloading the same torrent that you did) for anyone to answer you. For example, You could download a torrent that contains software xyz. I could download a different torrent that contains software xyz and it works for me but not for you simply because the uploader on my torrent gave me a valid software image, but yours, wanting to be cute placed a virus in his version to mess with your computer. Downloading anything from the web is a risk. If you are not willing to take it - do not download.
