Back in last June we featured a private torrent tracker named Comic-Releech. There was something special about this site – it was the world’s first specialized comedy tracker (well there was BiteMyTorrents but that’s mostly for radio shows). Comic Releech tracked everything from comedy movies to stand ups, quickly becoming a favorite among many fans of the genre. However, the site’s growth was somewhat hampered by the fact that potential members needed to go through an IRC interview process to get into the tracker. This extra step has now been eliminated – CoR is open for registration and anyone can instantly create an account.

Comic Releech

So far, Comic-Releech has been very ‘selective’ about it’s members. During the past few months only around 400 users had managed to get in. While this ensured that only good, active members remained on the site, it also dealt a negative blow to overall health of torrents. Some of the torrents in CoR’s 250+ strong torrent index definitely needed more leechers/seeders. Registrations have been opened to bring in some fresh new blood:

As some of you have noticed, the CoR Staff decided to do something pimp and open registrations! How long, you may ask? We don't even know! So invite your friends, your family, your neighbours dog! Come one, Come all to Comic-Releech!
Note: Dupe accounts are not cool and will still be banned!
Welcome to all new users!
Please read the rules and enjoy your stay at comic-releech

As mentioned earlier Comic-Releeech tracks everything related to comedy - Audio tracks, movies, TV seasons and even E-books. It already has a great selection of Standup comedy torrents – there are over 60 of them. Following is a screenshot showing part of CoR’s torrent index:

CoR releases

Did we mention that CoR runs on Gazelle codebase? All great features of Gazelle such as tagging, search, stylesheets (there are 4 of them) and fast navigation speeds have been incorporated to the site. In addition, there is also a custom feature called ‘Comedian List’ which can be used to find and discover works by an artist of your interest.

If you are into Comedy, this is a tracker you should not miss.

    Shamira,
    No their current host was ordered to stop hosting TPB. The site came back up with a temporary host but that's currently experiencing technical difficulties.
    Don't worry you haven't seen the last of TPB.

    Pirate Bay closed after court decision

    Swedish file sharing website The Pirate Bay remained closed on Tuesday morning after a Stockholm court decision forced a supplier to cut off server capacity.

    * Pirate Bay buyer faces criminal investigation (24 Aug 09)
    * Pirate Bay buyer suffers new setback (24 Aug 09)
    * Debt collector hunts Pirate Bay buyer (21 Aug 09)

    The Stockholm District Court ordered Black Internet to stop supplying the notorious file sharing site with capacity in a ruling issued shortly after lunch on Monday.

    Faced with a fine of 500,000 kronor ($70,700) Black Internet took the decision to cut off the Pirate Bay and the site has been closed since, according to a report in the Dagens Nyheter newspaper.

    "We received the decision about the fine shortly after lunch and turned off capacity just before 3pm. There are laws and regulations in society and one should follow them. What we think about this and how we shall act in the future remains undecided," Black Internet's CEO Victor Möller told DN.se.

    The court ordered that server capacity to The Pirate Bay should be closed pending the conclusion of the court case directed against the founders of the website by the US film and music industry, the newspaper writes.

    According to Victor Möller The Pirate Bay is unlikely to remain out of service, but as they were its biggest supplier new capacity could take a while to find.

    The Pirate Bay is the subject of a 60 million kronor takeover bid by Global Gaming Factory X (GGF) that is due to be completed on August 27th.

    The Local reported on Monday that GGF and CEO Hans Pandeya are the subject of a criminal investigation amid allegations of insider trading.

    Pandeya is also the subject of a claim filed with the Swedish enforcement service (Kronofogden) for alleged unpaid debts to former board member Johan Sellström and the Swedish tax agency.

    Stockholm District Court convicted Pirate Bay backers Fredrik Neij, Gottfrid Svartholm Warg, Peter Sunde and Carl Lundström in April on charges of of being accessories to copyright infringement.

    The four were each sentenced to one year in prison and ordered to pay 30 million kronor ($3.56 million) in damages.
