Yes, but where do the downloads go on a live CD? You can't write to the
hard drive as user "inx" (uid 999).

OK - not surprising that you didn't see any upload since altogether
there have been 7 completed downloads ( only team members know about it
so far)

I think the error only  happened for people who had not port-forwarded
their torrent ports.

Yes, and that's what the CDMP script uses to play CDs :) Just makes it
easier by having key codes for volume, back, forward, pause and so on.
It also lets you choose a range of tracks or a play list, and
uses the abcde ripping program to do cddb lookups .  Give it a try :)
