discussion on how we can use statistical methods to measure and improve the efficacy of http://freeCodeCamp.com
For your case, I wouldn't advise an scratch approach.
You might need to install a more statistical-oriented library to help pandas. I have used
statsmodelslibrary in the past and I definite like it although it is not a popular option nowadays.
You can also use:
There are surely many other libraries.
There is substantial resources online about how to do a regression with all of those libraries and pandas, so please try that before asking? Let us know if you are in trouble after trying them. I would suggest not to post full errors, or at least make external links to them?

@timjavins Thanks! What do you mean with
"2 leachers and 1 seeder, all of which are offline"?
I am not very much knowledgeable with BitTorrent terminology, sorry.

@timjavins can you please let me know from where (country) and at what time you tried to download?
@mcbarlowe - would you be ok in try a test too?
We are using academictorrents, I think they are connected to universities.
But I was estimating a permanent connection.
Disclaimer: it was not an option I suggested in the first place. it was decided by other people in the group before I came.
Just a reminder for all of us:
UDP stands for User Datagram Protocol. Using this method, the computer sending the data packages the information into a nice little package and releases it into the network with the hopes that it will get to the right place. What this means is that UDP does not connect directly to the receiving computer like TCP does, but rather sends the data out and relies on the devices in between the sending computer and the receiving computer to get the data where it is supposed to go properly. This method of transmission does not provide any guarantee that the data you send will ever reach its destination. On the other hand, this method of transmission has a very low overhead and is therefore very popular to use for services that are not that important to work on the first try. A comparison you can use for this method is the plain old US Postal Service. You place your mail in the mailbox and hope the Postal Service will get it to the proper location. Most of the time they do, but sometimes it gets lost along the way.
@mcbarlowe I am not sure. Could be but let's decide that together?
These are the characteristics we are looking for in the data hosting platforms:
Stick to 1 or 2 data storages that balance:
- the best storage in size
- the best visibility to the dataset
- the best visibility to fCC
- the best of the additional features that better help the user
- the simplest procedures
- the less disruptive to users
- comply with the open data philosophy
I don't want to force a solution that might prove impractical when left alone. It has to work without too much monitoring.
Is academictorrent in that sense a seed, @mcbarlowe? Or academictorrent need still seeds?
Did you succeed?

Tebibytes. 84 Tebibytes only for one of the formats.
If you sometime gets interested, you should need to have a hand at map-reduce in AWS.
