Openbittorrent tracker went down a few days ago

Has caused havoc for many rtorrent based servers, failed dns request comes back and it essentially hangs under too much load.


Quite a flaw in the logic of iver libtorrent or rtorrent (have not seen this happen in deluge yet, so unlikely to be libtorrent but the way rtorrent implements it ild say.)



Piratebay never was a "tv program site" and there is plenty more places content could come from out there...


Heres the article on piratebay reportedly being raided. im sure it will probably prop up again.. it always does..

Ill simply say as i said before. 

There is plenty more out there.

Some just dont fly a flag saying HEY HEY IM OVER HERE!


Worth pointing out piratebay moved away from using their own tracker ages ago, its all magnets expecting to use DHT, trackers as backup... There are plenty of "indexing" sites out there.


The irony is, in the underground sites the real issue isnt being raided but simply Competition causing issues between the communities, and it overflowing to a "fight of sorts"

It'll be back, and bigger than ever.

Private trackers and seedboxes are where its at.




When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

I would like all the aged hippies to make a circle join hands for a stirring rendition of "We shall overcome!" Hmmm I suppose if I downloaded torrents Not that I do of course I would just go to kickass and the world would keep on spinning...
