tranceroute tracker

At the time this post is being written, TranceRoute tracks over 7200 torrents. The exact number of registered users is not known. Music from a number of different music genres such as Disco, Dream, Electro, Techno, etc can be found here. This includes over 500 torrents of lossless music. In addition, TranceRoute has one of the best exclusive releases section I have seen on a BitTorrent tracker.

tranceroute screen 

A lot of good things can be said about this tracker. TranceRoute has a really cool, unique interface which is easy to navigate. It’s browse page includes tabs such as ‘totally fresh tunes’, ‘exclusives’, ‘trusted uploads’ etc – this really enhances the visibility of content on the tracker.

For those who are obsessed with tracker levels, TranceRoute is a level 4 tracker (if memory servers correct). Signups are open and this is a music have tracker if you are a music fan.

We’ve posted about many private torrent trackers on FILEnetworks Blog but there have only been very few articles on dedicated software (appz or application) trackers such as Appz BitShock, Appzuniverse, LinuxTracker and TuxDistro. SmartApps is a private torrent tracker specializing in software for Windows, Mac and Linux platforms. It’s the sister site of Dynamic-Universe, a new general tracker we reviewed earlier.

smartapps

As we said SmartApps is quite new and has only around 260 members (at the time this post is being written). There are however over 400 torrents indexed on this tracker. Majority of the content comprise of scene releases of Windows applications. Additionally, there are some Mac, Linux appz as well as smaller PC games available on SmartApps. 

smartapps releases

One thing I noticed is that even though this tracker currently has a small user base, most of the new torrents have 4-5 seeders each. This is adequate (and better than some general trackers which have 1 seeder on every torrent) and provides satisfactory download speeds most of the time.

As of this moment, SmartApps is open for new registrations. You get 1GB free upload credit upon signup. Don’t forget to check it out.

Updated builds of AnyDVD and AnyDVD HD have been released. You should be familiar with these apps by now but if you don’t know, AnyDVD is a software that can bypass many DVD and Blu-Ray copy protection schemes. It’s developed by SlySoft who were the first to crack the BD+ (Blu-Ray) copy protection scheme. When run in combination with DVD ripper applications such as CloneDVD, this is one of the easiest methods to make backups of copy protected/encrypted DVD and Blu Ray disks.

Version 6.5.03 includes support for the new BD+ copy protection system. AnyDVD and AnyDVDHD were also discussed in our previous post located here.

anydvd hd

Developer Description

AnyDVD is a driver, which descrambles DVD-Movies automatically in the background. This DVD appears unprotected and region code free for all applications and the Windows operating system as well. With AnyDVD's help copy tools like CloneDVD, Pinnacle Instant Copy, InterVideo DVD-Copy, etc. are able to copy CSS protected Movies. You can remove the RPC region code, thereby making the movie region free and viewable on any DVD player and with any DVD player software. With the help of AnyDVD you can watch movies with non matching region codes with every DVD Player Software you like.

AnyDVD is capable of removing unwanted movie features, including subtitles and prohibition messages such as copyright and FBI warnings. It also allows you to launch an external application whenever inserting or removing a disc, or prevent 'PC-friendly' software from automatically launching when inserting a video DVD.  AnyDVD decrypts not just DVDs: AnyDVD allows you also to play, copy and rip protected Audio CDs! Decryption is not all that AnyDVD offers. You can control the drive speed of your DVD drive, allowing you to reduce the noise level when watching movies on your PC. You can even adjust the display frequency of your monitor for both NTSC and PAL displays.

First of all let me tell you that this news will only be useful to existing members of RevolutionTT tracker. Since we have posted several times about RevTT open signups before, I assume we have a good number of readers who are already RevTT members. The good news is that RevTT have launched Holiday IRC bonus once again. This is one of the easiest ways to win free upload credit on this tracker.

revolutiontt irc bonus

There is a detailed forum post on RevTT which explains this contest in detail. Paragraph below is quoted from this post:

Holiday Bonus runs from December 29th 2008 - January 5th 2009.

You must join the #RevolutionTT IRC channel.

If you are in the channel when the highest user peak is recorded you will receive the associated credit shown below.

If the number of users in #Revolutiontt are as followed:

  • 1000-1499 - gets you 10gb
  • 1500-1999 - gets you 15gb
  • 2000-2499 - gets you 20gb
  • 2500-2999 - gets you 25gb
  • 3000+        - gets you 30gb

For Example... On Sat 3rd Jan 09 the channel hits 2800 users and your in the channel then after the competition ends. You would receive 25GB UPLOAD CREDIT!

One of the best things about the Holiday bonus is that all users logged onto IRC (including those who are idling) will receive the bonus as opposed to just 1-3 members in most other competitions.

How to join RevolutionTT IRC Channel:

There are several ways to do this. In all instances you need to login with your site nickname and use the unique IRC key – the channel is invite only.

1. Login to RevolutionTT and use the built in IRC chat page at https://www.revolutiontt.net/chat.php. You will need to have the Java Runtime Environment installed (Download it free from here) in order to load the chat widget.  

OR

2.
Use a 3rd party IRC chat client such as mIRC to login to RevTT IRC Channel (It’s easy to idle this way since you can keep the application minimized to tray just like IM software).

  1. If you don’t have mIRC installed, download and install it. A quick search for ‘mIRC’ on RevTT will give you everything you need. After mIRC installation in complete, shut down and restart your web browser.
  2. Set the mIRC nickname to your RevolutionTT username (Tools—>Options—>Connect-->NickName)
  3. Login to RevolutionTT and visit https://www.revolutiontt.net/irc.php. You will see a command in the page. This is usually similar to:
    /RevoTT !invite NICK abcdefggherhjklghfdjkhfds
    (This command is unique to each username). Copy this command to clipboard.
  4. Now click this link –> irc://irc.revolutiontt.net. Choose to open the link with mIRC when your web browser prompts.
  5. If mIRC presents you with a ‘Link Request’ window, choose ‘Change to the new server’ option and press ok.
  6. Once connected, type the command you copied on step 2 into the console and press enter. You will be invited to the #RevolutionTT channel.

Currently there are 1500+ users online. This number will rise as the news spreads – don’t be left out.

Run As Date is a rather uncommon but pretty useful piece of software.  It allows you to run specific programs with date and time settings of your choice. RunAsDate is basically a launcher which injects (no actual program modifications) user specified date and time settings to applications launched through it. Your system time will remain unchanged but the launched apps will believe the current date and time to be the one specified by Run As Date.

This application can help you with those ‘trial or beta period expired’ error messages – majority of such time limited installers will let you install expired trials or betas if you run them with appropriate date/time settings. This is just one use of RunAsDate and I’m sure you’ll find many other scenarios where this application will be useful.

Note: If you have AVG Anti Virus or Internet Security, you may get a Trojan horse alert when trying to use this application. This is a false positive and is not actually a virus.

run as date screenshot

Developer Description

RunAsDate is a small utility that allows you to run a program in the date and time that you specify. This utility doesn't change the current system date and time of your computer, but it only injects the date/time that you specify into the desired application.
You can run multiple applications simultaneously, each application works with different date and time, while the real date/time of your system continues to run normally. More information can be found on the app homepage.

We’ve mentioned about this tracker before but it’s well worth another post. Wild-Bytes is a private torrent tracker which tracks general content (Software, Movies, Games, Music, E-Books, Kids content, etc) and ) and 0-Day appz releases. Currently, there are around 8700 members on this tracker and the site has over 3200 indexed torrents. Wild-Bytes indexes all major scene and p2p releases and most of these torrents are well seeded.

In addition, they do track several unique packs (game packs, Movies packs, DVD covers packs, etc) unique to the site as well:

wild-bytes-packs 

Screenshot: Some of the Appz packs at Wild-Bytes.

Some of the torrents (including packs) on WB are on free leech (download not counted and only the upload is added to the user’s stats). Freeleech torrents have an animated gold coin next to their title. Wild Bytes also has a requests feature where existing members can request releases that have not been uploaded to the site.

As mentioned in the title of this post this tracker is currently open for signup. Wild-Bytes frequently deletes inactive members so don’t bother joining this tracker if you do not plan to be an active member there. The site has a user limit of 9000 which means there are around 200 spots available for the taking. Check it out - WB is a decent general tracker.

Since this question was asked many times in our invitation giveaway threads, we decided to post and article about it. One of the most common problems you may encounter with Demonoid registration process is the error message “ We are full. Sorry, since the server is too saturated, we can not accept more members at the moment. However, new spots are opened every day, so please, check back later”. This article discusses a few things you can do to get around this message if you ever encounter it while trying to register for a new Demonoid account.

demonoid-logo

As far as I know, this message can pop up when you are trying to register for a Demonoid account with an invitation code as well as when you are trying to register during an open signup period. Initially I thought Demonoid had a fixed user limit as in most other private torrent trackers. However this cannot be as the error message is not displayed universally to all users (i.e- Users in some parts of the world are able to sign up while some users continue get the error message). Perhaps Demonoid limits the number of registrations/registration attempts from a certain IP range. Either way, there are several things you can to do get around this problem:

1. If you have a dynamic IP, change your IP address and try signing up with the new IP. Usually disconnecting and reconnecting your internet connection will change your IP address.

2. Use a proxy site or an anonymization service to access Demonoid. Simply type http://www.demonoid.com in the text field where you have to enter the target web site and begin browsing. If it does not work with one site, try using another. I tested this method using www.anonymouse.org and it worked just fine. Demonoid’s FAQ does not say anything against the use of proxy sites so I guess it’s within the rules to sign up via a proxy. Below are a list of articles where you can find some good proxy sites and anomymization services:

Hope this solves your Demonoid registration problems.

P.S- Demonoid invivation code giveaway number 12 will be posted in a few more hours! Keep checking our homepage or giveaways section.

Reported Attack Site Error - Fixed

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 12/30/2008 | | 8 Comments »

Yesterday, some of our readers experienced a “Reported Attack Site” error when trying to visit FILEnetworks Blog. We are happy to inform that this error is now fixed.

So was there any malware hosted on FILEnetworks Blog at any point? Hell no. The warning signal was triggered by some interstitial ads (full page ads) that were placed by one of our advertisers. This ad service has now been completely removed from the blog. You can find the Google Safe Browsing Diagnostic Report for FILEnetworks Blog from here http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?site=http://filenetworks.blogspot.com.

Immediately after the warning was issued several hours ago, our search engine traffic collapsed to nothingness. However most of our regular visitors kept visiting the site despite the warnings – there was no reduction in returning visitor count. We are honored by the trust you placed in us and are extremely sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. The site should now appear normal on all browsers and even the search engine has returned back to normal. Cheers.

A new version of RivaTuner has been released. RivaTuner is a small utility which you can use to tweak a number of settings related to your NVIDIA video card. These settings are usually not changeable via default driver control panel. This includes monitoring GPU core temperature, controlling fan speed, Overclocking and a number of other low level and driver level settings.

RivaTuner 2.22 adds ForceWare 181.XX (including 181.00) driver support. It also includes support for ForceWare 180.87 and 180.88 versions. This should eliminate the forceware version not supported error messages at startup. I use RivaTuner mainly to monitor my VGA temperature. Another useful feature is that you can change the GPU fan speed at the driver level. If you are having graphcis card overheating problems, first try increasing fan speed to 100% using Rivatuner (NVIDIA’s GPU fans usually run at 60% of max speed by default).

There is quite a bit of talk on Romanian BitTorrent users these days with Waffles.fm banning Romanian IP ranges and ScT planning to enforce a similar ban. I’ve seen some heated arguments going on in various BitTorrent forums and sites about this issue but this article is not aimed at discussing ethics behind country bans.

Yesterday we reported about the first Beta build of Windows 7 (Version 6.1 build 7000 or build number 6.1.7000.0.081212-1400) being leaked on BitTorrent. Just a day or so after the release was leaked, pirates have managed to find a workaround to indefinitely extend the trial period of the OS. There seem to be several different ‘activators’ or ‘cracks’ for Windows 7 Beta 1, most of which are based on resetting or re-arming the free trial period of the OS.

windows 7 beta 1 build 7000

Microsoft did not introduce any major changes in Windows 7 build 7000 (beta 1 carrying version 6.1.7000.0.081212-1400) over the previous build (build 6969). It would not be wrong to assume that the anti piracy measures and the activation process in both builds remained unchanged. Perhaps this made it easier for pirates to find a workaround for Beta 1 as activation cracks for pre beta builds of Windows 7 had been around for a while. One of the most popular workarounds for Build 7000 seem to be the ones based on TimerNuke - a mechanism which can manipulate the trial period countdown timer of the OS. In addition to installation/un-installation of TimerNuke, some of these cracks seem to have the ability to remove the watermark as well as to stop the OS from sending feedback (call home) to Microsoft.

However, one must remember that this is still a beta build of Windows 7. Microsoft probably is saving the best anti piracy measures to be fully implemented in the final builds of the OS. Also note that these timestopper or re-arm cracks are known to be unreliable – sometimes they won’t work, sometimes they’ll appear to be working but the OS will still expire, etc. However even in the case of Windows Vista, pirates started out with time stopper workarounds but then managed to release more advanced cracks such as those based on BIOS emulation by the time a Final build of Vista was released. As for me, I’m just waiting for Microsoft to introduce the next major anti piracy measure for Windows 7 to resume watching the everlasting battle between Pirates vs MS.

Note: Please do not post any cracks, key generators, links to torrent files or any other download links here.

Dynamic Universe (DU) is a relatively new private torrent tracker which managed to show some promise has in the past two months. Although it’s only about 9 weeks old, Dynamic Universe has managed to index and track over 3300 active torrents. The site’s total user base now exceeds 1100. Both scene and p2p releases (movies, music, games. TV Shows, E-Books, etc) are indexed on Dynamic Universe.

Dynamic Universe logo

For a start up tracker, DU seems to be doing really good. Instead of a bunch of torrents with only 1 seeder and slow download speeds (which is typical for most new trackers), DU indexes all major scene and p2p releases which usually get 4-5+ seeders. Apart from individual releases, this tracker has some unique packs of its own :

Dynamic universe packs

As you can probably guess from the screenshots+, a lot of complete TV season packs (among others) can be found on Dynamic Universe. Make sure you have a look inside ‘Movies/Packs’ category and ‘TV/Packs’ category – you may find some good collections after all. 

If you are interested in joining this tracker, it’s currently open for signup. Registrations are free and no invite is required during the open signup period..

Looks like the year 2008 is not going to end too well for Romanian BitTorrent users. SceneTorrents (ScT), an ‘elite’ private torrent tracker, is considering banning Romanian IP ranges from accessing the site and the tracker. Note than this ban is not enforced at the time this post is being written. But the word on ScT’s IRC channel and forum is that it will soon come into effect (Hint- Current topic of Sct IRC is :: [ SCT IRC ] :: [ Upcoming .ro ban ] :: ).

sct logo

ScT’s move comes only a day after Romanian users were banned from the popular music tracker Waffles.fm.  From what I have gathered (from forum posts and ScT IRC channel), what started the chain of events was ‘feeling’ (ScT SysOP) getting tipped off about several Romanian members conducting public giveaways of ScT invites (which is prohibited by tracker rules).

If you are an existing ScT member from Romania and did not violate any of the tracker rules (no cheating, no account trading, etc) there is very little reason to worry. According to ‘feeling’, every Romanian user account on the site will be manually reviewed before a ban is issued. However, this ban, if enforced is likely to prevent any new Romanian users from gaining access to the tracker.

The first beta build of Microsoft’s upcoming operating system Windows 7 has leaked on Bittorrent networks. What seems to be a full (untouched) DVD ISO image of the Windows 7 Beta 1 (Version Windows 7 6.1.7000.0) has now made its was across several different public and semi private torrent networks.

windows 7 beta

Image Source: ZDnet Blog

There does not seem to be any official confirmation from Microsoft about the leak. The claim of this release being ‘Windows 7 Beta 1’ depends solely upon the assumption that first Windows 7 beta will carry build number 7000. The ‘about window’ of Windows Media Center in the leaked build states the version number as Windows 7 build 6.1.7000.0 (winmain.win7beta.081212-1400). This matches the build number of Windows 7 Beta 1 stated in ZDNet blog so it looks very much like the real deal.

Although pirates did seemingly manage to crack pre beta builds of Windows 7, there does not seem to be a crack associated with this release. From what it looks like, this is an untouched (no files modified or cracked) ISO image of the ‘Windows 7 Ultimate Beta 1’ and it is set to expire on the 1st of July 2009. That being said, there are already over 10000 people downloading the torrent on one well known public BitTorrent tracker alone.

Note: Please do not post cracks, key generators, links to torrent files or any other download links.

We’ve previously posted a lot of BitTorrent trackers such as MVGroup (Open) and Docs.Torrents.Ro (Open) from where you can download premium documentaries. But none of these were dedicated documentary sites. Docs4You is perhaps the first site posted on FILEnetworks Blog which specializes in documentaries. It however is not a BitTorrent tracker – it’ a forum which contains hundreds of verified one click hosting links to premium documentaries and TV Shows.

Docs4You logo

Although you may not have heard about this site before, Docs4You is not a small forum by any means -There are currently over 23000 registered members. Hundreds of documentary videos from channels such as Discovery, National Geographic, Animal Planet, BBC, PBS, HBO, Frontline, Imax, Channel 4 and lots more can be found on this site. In addition, Docs4You has a small section where links to regular TV series can also be found.

Download links on this forum are pretty reliable - Most links point to RapidShare hosted content but I have never run into a fake or a virus infected file so far. For those interested, registrations are currently open.

Each of these keys will be valid for 30 days. An unlimited number of users can join Pretome tracker using one key during this period. Once the current key expires, we will ask for a new key from Pretome admins and post an updated article with the new monthly key.

Avoid spam E-Mail with Spamihilator 0.9.9.44

Spam E-mail is a problem almost every user faces. There are many anti spam applications around but most of these are bulky, resource consuming or are ineffective at catching spam. Spamihilator is a lightweight but effective tool to combat junk E-mail which I've been using with good results. It runs in the background and supports a number of E-Mail clients including Outlook, Thunderbird and Eudora.

One of the best things about Spamihilator is it’s ‘learning’ mail filter. The more you use this application, the more good it will become at catching spam. Check it out.

spamihilator logo

Developer Description

Spamihilator works between your E-Mail client and the Internet and examines every incoming E-Mail. Useless spam mails (Junk) will be filtered out. This process runs completely in the background. The new Learning Filter (Bayesian Filter) uses the rules of Thomas Bayes (English mathematician, 18th century) and calculates a certain Spam-Probability for every E-Mail. You can train this filter! So it will know your messages even better than you. Hence the recognition rate will continuously increase. In addition Spamihilator uses a Word-Filter, that searches messages for known keywords. Of course, Spamihilator supports Plugins. These useful additional filters protect your system against annoying spam mails. The program works with almost every E-Mail client, such as Outlook 2000/XP/2003/Express, Eudora, Mozilla, Netscape, IncrediMail, Pegasus Mail, Phoenix Mail, Opera, etc...

Download

Spamihilator is freeware. It’s only around 2MB in file size so even dial up or low bandwidth users should have no problem downloading this one.

Just when we were talking about Romanian BitTorrent users, here is a Romania based private torrent tracker opening signups. ARM Tracker is a general/0Day tracker with lots of English scene and p2p releases. It’s been around for a while and currently indexes nearly 1500 active torrents. Exact number of users on this tracker is unknown but most of the new torrents are pretty well seeded.

arm tracker logo

In addition to individual scene and p2p torrents, ARM Tracker has a good collection of packs. I noticed that several of these packs had tags such as ‘BiTT’ and ‘BestShare’ which perhaps means that they were obtained from other Romanian trackers such as Bittorrents.ro (Open) and BestShare.ro (Down). Nevertheless don’t forget to check the packs section on ARM Tracker:

ARM Tracker packs

Most of these packs are on free leech which is a good thing given that some of them exceed 100GB in size. Pre times on this tracker are average – Don’t expect SCC or SCT pres but they will not be painfully slow either. Signups are currently open so interested readers may join for free.

DVDFab is an application which I have come to trust over the years. It’s probably one of the easiest ways to copy, covert and burn copy protected DVDs. DVDFab can successfully copy DVDs protected by CSS, CPPM, RC, RCE, APS, UOPs, ARccOS, RipGuard, FluxDVD and CORE X2 protection mechanisms. Additionally, you can customize copied DVDs, combine DVDs, split DVDs into several disks (ex- 1 DVD9 copied on two DVD5 disks) and burn them all using DVDFab.

Version 5.2.2.2 was released on the 24th of December and it incldues several bugfixes over the previous build (5.2.2.0). If you download a lot of DVDRs from private torrent trackers such as DVDQuorum, The DVD Club, BitHQ or Asian DVD Club, this application could be useful for you.

DVDfab logo

Developer Description

DVDFab Platinum is all-in-one DVD copying/converting/burning software. In just one or two steps, you can copy any DVD to DVDR/PSP/iPod/etc. DVDFab Platinum is brand new, is completely rewritten, is based on more than 6 years of DVD copy software development. It allows you to remove all DVD copy protections, like CSS, CPPM, RC, RCE, APS, UOPs, ARccOS, RipGuard, FluxDVD, CORE X2, etc. It is constantly updated to support latest DVD copy protections and has a very fast copying speed, normally it's about 10 - 20 minutes.

We recently posted about the A-Patch which allows you to remove advertisements in Windows Live Messenger. Here is a similar application that can remove advertisements in AOL Instant Messenger (AIM). Not only can it disable ads but it can also remove unwanted software such as Viewpoint Media Player and WildTangent which come bundled with some AIM installations.

AIM ad hack functions similar to A-Patch. First you get to select which options you want to apply. Then all you have to do is it patch AIM with the press of a button. This is a one time thing and then you can forget about it altogether (no need to keep the hack running in the background). No one really likes ads on their IM so we hope you’ll find this little application pretty useful.

The download link to AIM Simple Cloner is also included. AIM simple cloner is a software that you can use to run multiple instances of AIM (Polygamy).

DVDQuorum is a Spanish private torrent tracker with both English and Spanish movies. Just like BitHQ, TheDVDClub and AsianDVDClub (Open), DVDQuorum tracks full DVDs of movies and TV Shows which contain original menus, audio streams and subtitles. You won’t find any XViD encoded DVDRips on this tracker as it only indexes untouched DVD5 and DVD9 releases (for XViD rips, try these movie trackers).

DVDquorum logo

With over 43000 members and over 13500 indexed torrents, DVDQuorum is one of the largest DVDR trackers currently online. Note that this tracker has some Spanish movies. But majority of the releases are either English or Multilanguage. If you are a non Spanish user and want to make sure the movie you download has English audio, check the ‘Forum Link’ (The Blue Icon) next to torrent title. This will take you to a forum post with detailed information on that particular release.

dvdquorum_forum_link

Also note that every torrent has two titles. One on the top is in Spanish and the other one (marked by a red arrow in above screenshot) is the English name. A torrent with a Spanish title does not necessarily mean it’s a Spanish language release – Always check the forum link (marked by the red circle) to determine the available spoken languages on the DVD. Note that English is sometimes referred to as Inglés on this tracker Ex- AUDIO: Español Dolby Digital 5.1, Inglés Dolby Digital 5.1.

Signups are currently open so interested readers may join without an invite. Open signups don’t last forever so get in ASAP.

Site Name: DVDQuorum (http://www.dvdquorum.es)

Signup Process:

The signup process at DVDQuorum is a bit odd. You need to first sign up in their forums and then use that user name when registering for the tracker.

  1. Register in forums: http://www.dvdquorum.es/foro/index.php?action=register
  2. Click confirmation mail to activate forum account.
  3. Register for tracker: http://bt.dvdquorum.es/signup.php (Use the same username in both instances)
  4. Click confirmation mail to activate account.

Waffles.fm bans Romanian users

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 12/26/2008 | , | 4 Comments »

Update: It appears that Waffles.fm has now lifted the ban on Romania. Good news for our Romanian readers :)

Waffles.fm, one of the best private music torrents trackers, has banned all Romanian users from the site since the 23rd of December. The ban has not only affected potential new users but has resulted in existing Waffles members who are from Romania not being able to access the site as well.

waffles.fm

Below is quoted from an update posted by a mod @ Waffles.fm:

Due to Romania being largely a cesspool of spam, viruses, phishing, and fraud, and phishing attempts, fraudulent donations, cheating, and the like from various Romanian IPs with zero action on the part of Romanian ISPs, Romania is hereby banned from Waffles. Please take care to not invite people if you know they're in or from Romania. We will not take action against you, but may change tune in the future.

Waffles is not the only tracker to ban Romania – several other high level trackers such as SCC have been blocking Romanian IP ranges for quite a while now. In almost all of these cases, the cause of the ban (as explained by tracker admins) has been above-the-norm number of cheaters being reported from Romania. Obviously this does not mean that every Romanian BitTorrent user is a cheater – it’s a prime example of how a handful of cheaters can ruin it for a number of good users who probably followed every tracker rule.

On the other hand, I can’t understand why anyone from Romania would want to cheat. As far as I know broadband connections in Romania are damn fast. Plus they have some of the best private trackers around such as iPlay, SceneFZ, CZONE (which AFAIK is an actual ISP), TorrentBits (Open) all of which have tons of Romanian users and still have great download speeds.

It’s a well known fact that you need to have your Anti Virus software up to date in order to be protected from latest viruses and other malware. Most security software vendors tend to provide updates over the internet. But what if you have a computer that is not connected to the internet or is having limited internet connectivity (low bandwidth, data cap, etc)? This article describes how you can update your Anti Virus software manually using offline definition updates.

Although most Anti Virus software have a built in automatic updates feature, vendors tend to release standalone update installers usually through their official website. Once you download one of these offline installers, you can use it to update virus definition files even on Anti Virus software installed on computers without internet access (Ex- Download offline installer from work computer which has internet access and then use the installer to update home computer which is not connected to the internet). Below is a list of locations where you can find and download offline definition update installers for several popular Anti Virus software.

1. Kaspersky Internet Security and Kaspersky Anti Virus

It’s the holiday season and the festive atmosphere is everywhere –even in BitTorrent trackers.

After declaring a relaxed invite policy for December 2008, BitMeTV (BMTV) caught me by surprise when they announced site wide freeleech today.

Santa Dropped by BitMeTV!!

This year he brought us all site-wide Freeleech.This will take place for the next few days before going back to normal. Please check the news posts for Updates. Also remember this just affects your overall total and it might not be reflected on individual torrent stats.
