Description:

This is an icon for Bittorrent MIME type (files usually with .torrent extension. I made it because there wasn't any available. icons are available in 128, 64,48,32,16 sizes.
I used a background from the existing icon from crystal set so credits go to everaldo (thanks everaldo!!).
as far as i know there's no x-application-bittorrent mime type in kde-3.2 so you have to make one yourself and assign this icon to it.

if you have any suggestions, please let me know.

These are great icons, and I've been using them for a while now.

One comment, though. Since red usually indicates outward flow, and blue inward flow (blood flow metaphor), shouldn't the upward arrow be red and the downward arrow be blue?

Maybe I'm being too picky.

Thanks for the great icons!!!!

The red blue arrows makes me think of Palm's HotSync, but even tough, it's in my crystal folder right now!

One comment is the 'Bittorrent' text on the top of the icon isn't legible except for in 128x128, which is pretty rarely used.

Maybe in 64x64 and below you could just have "Bt" but make the writing bigger?

The same goes for the 1s and 0s. They can't really be made out on the samller icons. Maybe keep them the same size as the icons get smaller, but just have less of them.

A very nice icon that embodies the fundamental quality of bittorrent, the give-and-take (wasn't there some fiction book that used the phrase giftake?). The question is whether laypeople know that this is a characteristic of bittorrent. For that reason, I was wondering if the image could get a more "torrentious" quality. Something like a wave made up of 1's and 0's, or a stream of arrows. Just thinking aloud here. It's already a great icon :)
