If you are running linux and have bittorrent installed then you can just
open the torrent file from the webbrowser. Alternatively the command line
|btdownloadheadless --url http://someplace/file.torrent --saveas file
|should do the trick, although it tends to spew out too much info which
you probably want to pipe to /dev/null.
You can use btdownloadcurses instead if you want to interact, or
btdownloadgui if you have X available.
Bittorrent is installed by default in Ubuntu.
If you're running Windows then you can probably just download bittorrent
and open the torrent files from your webbrowser. I don't know how to
automate it using that though.
There doesn't seem to be any activity on the planet torrent though...
not finding any seeds or peers.
