I'll keep seeding, spread the joy!
ok... I'm an ignoramus when it comes to torrents. I just downloaded bittorrent and am downloading the file. So what exactly does the following numbers mean?

seeds: 25(37)
peers: 20(47)
downspeed: 459.5kB/s
upspeed: 23.5kB/s
ratio: 0.082
Avail: 34.959

I have an idea about the downseed but what exactly am I uploading (if that's what upseed means)

Anyways any tutorial on this wild crazy technology would be appreciated.
