These models are getting to big to download all in one go without either getting rate limited or
Tell me why torrents aren't the standard for AI model distribution, and instead people rely on heavily moderated closed source platforms like HuggingFace?

    This is a troonyfox issue. Chrome prevents sleep when downloads are active.

      It's a brain problem.
      Thinking that using any browser with its half-assed download function, where unfinished downloads can simply get deleted on a whim, is the only possible way of downloading a file (unless it's a torrent for which you know an "app").
      You are absolutely moronic subhumans and should unironically euthanize yourselves.

      If you don't know how to resume a partially finished download at any later point in time you are fricking moronic.

      OP is moronic. But this is the most moronic possible answer to OP's problem. You have out-moronic the OP by an order of magnitude.
      If you clone the fricking repo with git it is downloading all files. Not to speak of the lfs bullshit that always breaks. OP only needs one fricking quant. On top of all that a git clone with lost connection is not something you can simply resume from where you left off as easily as you could a simple file download. So you're solving 0 of OP's moronic problems and adding only more problems and bullshit on top.

        Unfinished browser downloads will be kill like 50% of the time.

        Yeah, git lfs just doesn't cut it for distributing large AI models, that's why I think torrents could offer a better solution. So why is no one using them?

          That's why you use something else for huge downloads that might be interrupted multiple time, you tech-illiterate subhuman.
          >Yeah, git lfs just doesn't cut it for distributing large AI models, that's why I think torrents could offer a better solution. So why is no one using them?
          Because you can simply http download the files you need from huggingface as long as they are there, instead of cloning the whole fricking repo. And if you are not braindead you also know how to resume a partially finished http download. It's simply more convenient for most people and probably why torrents have fallen out of use for that. Especially when so many new models are produced constantly, existing ones updated with better quants and whatnot. A torrent needs to live long enough to have any usefulness. LLM weights are huge and fall out of fashion too quickly, and people don't have space to keep them stored and keep seeding for long.

            With that said I can't believe there is an easy to find miqu torrent for every possible quant out there.
            Because it's a landmark model that should hold interest for a bit longer, and its dubious legal status which made people worry that it might get deleted from HF I would have thought that torrent enthusiasts should be seeding that thing left and right.

            NTA but miqu isn't even mistral-medium. That's a meme /lmg/ made up. Then mistral CEO confirmed it's a mistral-trained model, and several people took that as confirmation that it's mistral-medium, when what the guy actually said is that it's a leak of a llama2 finetune they made for one of their clients before mistral-7b released.

            lol. It's pretty much mistral medium. Maybe an "alpha" version or some shit before it got cucked and aligned or whatnot. So that's even better. They admitted that it's theirs and everyone can see the similarity to mistral medium.
            But whatever you believe, the point here is that it's a landmark model in the local-hosted scene.

            so it is a bit sad for torrentbros when they find no torrent under that name on piratebay.
            how do you get your torrent listed on piratebay anyway? i'm not familiar with that whole ecosystem.

      Yes. I'm stuck with 10Mbps down because my ISP sucks and is dragging their ass to try and get as much government subsidies as possible. My neighbor got fiber optic 5 years ago, but God forbid they lay another 20 feet of cable so I can get gigabit speeds.

      Whit kind of Black person tier OS are you running?

      I was downloading it on my secondary laptop which runs windows. I unplugged it for a few minutes to switch it to a different room and aggressive power management takes over.
