i just went to go on the pirate bay, and the site no longer works. i know they are having a major court case at the moment i thought they had been shut down... but after doing a little hunting i found my answer: http://torrentfreak.com/the-pirate-bay-down%E2%80%9A-but-not-out-090302 it appears it hasn't been shutdown, just offline...
