    So Isohunt shut down...

    This quite a big that I feel hasn't received enough attention, Isohunt one the longest standing torret sites was forced to close the other day due to the big bully know as Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA).

    What happened: (From News articles)

    The court case began seven years and ended last Thursday with the site’s owner, Gary Fung, agreeing to pay $110 million (£68m) to the group of film studios including Twentieth Century Fox and Disney.
    The homepage of the site was replaced with a post written by Fung titled “Initiating Self Destruct”, with Fung explaining that “We are shutting down isoHunt services a little early. I’m told there was this Internet archival team that wants to make historical copy of our .torrent files.”
    Mr Fung was accused by the MPAA of inducing the pirating of films and TV shows. Fung defended himself by saying that his site did not host any pirate material although it did index where such material could be found.

    If you're serious about torrenting you really should look in to getting access to a private network. Public torrents are an unnecessary risk, but finding an invite to a private torrent network is quite tricky so it could take some time before you are welcomed into one of those communities.

    *Also, your signature makes me nauseous.
