The Almighty Pirate Bay

Taken Directly from thepiratebay.org :

SITE DOWN - WILL BE UP AND FULLY FUNCTIONAL WITHIN A DAY OR TWO

In the morning of 2006-05-31 the Swedish National Criminal Police showed a search warrant to Rix|Port80 personnell. The warrant was valid for all datacentres of Rix|Port80 and was directed at The Pirate Bay. The allegation was breach of copy-right law, alternatively assisting breach of copy-right law.

The police officers were allowed access to the racks where the TPB servers and other servers are hosted. All servers in the racks were clearly marked as to which sites run on each. The police took down all servers in the racks, including the non-commercial site Piratbyrån, the mission of which is to defend the rights of TPB via public debate.

According to police officers simultaneously questioning the president of Rix|Port80, the purpose of the search warrant is to take down TPB in order to secure evidence of the allegations mentioned above.

The necessity for securing technical evidence for the existence of a web-service which is fully official, the legality of which has been under public debate for years and whose principals are public persons giving regular press interviews, could not be explained. Asked for other reasoning behind the choice to take down a site, without knowing whether it is illegal or not, the officers explained that this is normal.

The TPB can receive compensation from the Swedish state in case that the upcoming legal processes show that TPB is indeed legal.

TPB will be back soon, before you know it. ;)

UPD: The site is back up! XD The police regretfully handed back the servers after thoroughly going through them and discovering that there was no illegal material at all. It all turns out that Hollywood told the Swedish police to take action, so they did, despite Swedish laws. :P Hollywood has to understand though, that American law wont work here! Driving a torrent site is not a crime in Sweden, and hopeful never will be. Downloading itself is the only illegal activity, and how the hell are they going to arrest %10 of the Swedish Population?! :D Haha, yeaah,The worlds biggest torrent tracker is back, and now even bigger than before thanks to the media. 8)

QuickTime

To play a couple of trailers I downloaded I needed to download the newest version of Quicktime. So I visited the Quicktime site and noticed their stupid idea of putting I-Tunes and Quicktime in the same package. I want Quicktime but I don't want I-Tunes, so I had to download both and then delete iTunes. Luckily they aren't stupid enough to uninstall both programs if you try to uninstall one. I don't know if it's a commercial idea or if it's for the benefit of the users, probably commercial. I do know that it's the dumbest idea in a long time. Here is a good QuickTime Alternative.

Spam? Finally!

Well... really, it's not something to look forward to, but spam is a sign that sites are growing... or that there isn't enough security... and I prefer the first option. ;) Anyhow, a bunch of casino poker comments arrived today and I decided to add some anti-spam plugins, so no more spam, k, lol...

1000 MBit

Early 2007 the first 10,000 customers will be able to enjoy their 1000MB connections, at first they will have to pay about 1100KR ($120) a month but since the net is open and therefore invites competing ISP's the prices will drop dramatically in the first year. Sweden was first with 10MB And 100MB connections and will be first again with the 1000MB connection. Sweden continues to be the world leader! :D

At first the connections will only be available in Lund, but it will soon spread around the whole country. Isn't Sweden great? :D
