Just yet another quick mention in case you didn’t see the article on Torrent Freak that Demonoid is back online and sort of working. The forums are still offline but maybe that’s a good thing as it’ll give the moderators a chance to review the rules one more time and hopefully pay attention to this this time around. The servers still seem to be stressed a bit as 404’s and Server overloaded errors abound.
The tracker has been up for awhile now. The indexer and the main site have now returned.
Yes, I have invites but no I’m not giving them out as I don’t want to put my own account at risk. (edit: I think waiting until they resolve the rest of their issues would be best anyway before overtaxing their servers with new users.)
Just a quick mention that Demonoid has opened up the flood gates yet again for new registrations. I’m sure the next week or so will be fulled with folks uploading Get Rich Quick plans or even more torrents of Twilight. (Had six of those one day last week. Lots of fun.)
There are three times as many Romance books on the file networks when compared to the number of Science Fiction and Fantasy books. I kid you not. I’m looking at what’s been uploaded within the 48 hours over at Demonoid and there’s three times the number of torrents for Romance books compared to Science Fiction and Fantasy
And you all thought it was the geeks who ran the net.
Friendly reminder about the Romance Novel Cover Generator. Image from here.
, a BitTorrent tracker, has opened itself up for new registrations
. Not sure how long they’ll take them. Be sure to grab an account if you’re into that sort of thing.
Of course this will mean their server will be slow for the next week or so….
It appears that demonoid.com is back on line and kicking out torrents. It’s a pity that the school I use has torrents blocked or I would make use of this service. Hmm, maybe I should look into finding an article on how to use Putty and a VPS to Bypass any Firewall or Throttling ISP with SSH.
