De ieri este down. Proces cu MPAA. Pe site se găsește asta :

Update, Jan. 16, 2007

Lawyers from our primary ISP decided to pull our plug without any advance notice, as of 14:45 PST. No doubt related to our lawsuit brought by the MPAA, but we don’t have more information at this time until people responsible comes to work tomorrow. We will be back in operation once we sort out this mess with our current ISP, or we get new hardware ready at our new ISP.Sit back and enjoy the rest of the internet in the mean time, while it last. For your torrent searching needs, try Google for now by searching for “SEARCH TERMS ext:torrent”.

You can also come hang around our IRC channel (SSL on port +7000). We’ll update on this page and on IRC when we have more information.

If you wish to help us out financially, you can donate via Paypal from the button below. Due to prior dis-taste from certain individuals misusing legal funds for their own purposes however, this is not a legal defense fund. Your donations will be used for the operational costs of our servers and development of our websites. You have our sincere thanks.

FYI, since this is a common topic, no, moving servers to Sweden or Sealand isn’t going to help. I have no intention of hiding our servers. BitTorrent was created for legitimate distribution of large media files, and we stand by that philosophy as a search engine and aggregator. Our current ISP is in the US. Our new ISP is in Canada, where this temporary page is being served. Depending on whether we get our servers back in the US, we will be back in full operation sooner or later.

So after screwing around with our gigabit switch for a few hours, I’ve given up on one particular task and I’m moving on, hopefully we’ll have our data back today, because if we do, we should be at least halfway back up by friday. If we don’t get our data back from our previous provider, it may take a little longer to come back live again, but we are working on it, so be patient. :-)

Deja vu ?

    Ok, we ran into more snags (mainly with network hardware) than we anticipated, but we are getting real close now. I expect we can restore services by today.

    I just got access to my email on, and there is a staggering number of them from Paypal. I checked, and since Jan. 17, we’ve received about $4000 in donations. That’s $1000/day. A testiment to how much you guys care about the services we provide, and especially meaningful to those of us working day and night setting up our new cluster (with hardware we have to beat into submission). Thank you.

    To give you an idea of the extent of this upgrade, we spent $40,000 on hardware alone. These are hand-picked server parts we assembled ourselves. Monthly bandwidth cost extra. Kudos, your money is being put to good use.

    Sper sa rezolve astia problema asta o data
