Please please, can someone tell me how bittorrent works? And how to get files from it (tennis matches AND other stuff)? I tried reading the website and it's confusing me, and then i tried downloading a tennis match and it's at 1KiB/s. is it supposed to be that slow?

Yeah, it can take really long (days, even weeks). Check out http://dessent.net/btfaq/.

It looks like you are behind a firewall, router, or a hub, are you? If you are, you have to open your ports up, from 6881-6889.
