Time left at 0 B/s

Post by Cyborg » 2004-03-28 19:58

When downloading at 0 B/s the time left says 0:00:00 which places that download on top of faster downloads (im sorting by time left).
The time left should be set to 9:99:99 or something like that.

If its downloading at 0b/s then it an't downloading and it can't calculate the estimated download time.

Solved?

lol! no it's not solved!
even if its not downloading, the program "thinks" it is!
it says that its downloading at a speed of 0. and its annoying that those files are on top of all faster downloads!

the download time should be "--.--" or "N/A" or something, 00:00 implies that it's already finished

Another pretty similar strange thing:

1 sec left of 503 MB file in 654B/s before the download has even started!

The file is not fake..I've finished the download and checked that it's not fake.
Does it matter if the file is fake or not? The download hasn't started and it still shows a time left.

Another strange thing appeard to me the other day.
When trying to download a file from a user with no available slots, it said "No slots available" (or something like that), but the timeleft was 2 seconds...How can that be?

I made a patch to eliminate the speed and time columns if a transfer isn't running, I'll submit it to arne at some point.
