Windows 7: R.I.P to an old friend

R.I.P to an old friend

Hi there
Seems like the end of the road for a site - against Forum rules to name it explicitly but I KNOW many people used it when Windows 7 builds were "Leaked" into the wild.

Seems like their server is "Perpetually Busy" -- that's the message it sends out -- "Server Too Busy".

Anyway even though using sites like these could be considered dubious I'm sure most of us have done this at some time or other.

It's just this particular site was absolutely EXCELLENT at what it did and could find things like rare copies of Audio books that have long since gone out of production and weren't available by any other source.

I hope the glitch is temporary -- otherwise Farewell -- I enjoyed the ride.

Cheers
jimbo

Are you talking TPB? if so I just tested it (had to walk past my ISP block by using Opera with Turbo mode on) but is seems to work fine.

Your ISP blocks it? I tested it and it is fune. My ISP doesn't block anything.

Yeah there have been a couple of successful cases recently in the UK with some of the major ISP's having to block TPB and newzbin2, the blocks are just lip service to the rulings and can be bypassed with very little effort.

That's the one.

Hope it's not gone forever.

A good alternative might be the one suggested with a Feline name -- that's still working but the search is horrendous.
