That is a nasty captcha on that site. I tried 3 times and couldn't get it so gave up. I won't be on there anyway.

When I visited there was no CAPTCHA and showed nothing for my IP (I have a static IP). I wouldn't connect with my Facebook account.

I visited before being asked to login with Facebook. Basically it tracks torrents and requests so it will just list what torrents were downloaded from your IP address recently.

interesting, so if you downloaded torrents from using the pirate bay tracker, then it would show up. What about adsl connections where the IP address is changing.

This is obviously not an "official" tracking. It doesn't track YOU, it tracks an IP address. YOU will know if you r address changed lately. In my case I have the same IP address for the last six years so I know exactly what would show up, if anything.

Now lets just wait for the court orders from MPAA etc to obtain their database...

BTW, my (static) IP is not listed on their database. I don't use torrents anyway..

I beleive i got the CAPTCHA right but that part of the site is broken.

If you type it in wrong you get a pop up saying that you typed it in wrong and tells you that you can refresh the page to get a new one.

If you type it in right (capital letters, numbers and symbols) the CAPTCHA picture disappears and nothing happens.

I know i havent downloaded any torrents at home, but thought it might be a useful tool to use else where. but since it is crap and will only let you view it with Facebook i wont be using it.

Shame really.

Why do you need to log in? I see no results on me and am able to browse others' IP details as well without logging in.

They've changed it now, you can get in without logging in. It thinks my work address (Whakatane) is in Gisborne and lists something that appears to be porn :P
