RIP

June 25th, 2014 by

Today I was met with this message on the front page of one of the trackers (p2p file sharing sites) I visit, SwePiracy:

2006 – 2014
Swepiracy has been permanently shut down due to insufficient funds, lacking interest (among members as well as staff) and most important the extreme judicial situation of today (according to host personnel, our servers were copied together with Sparvar, although we were not hosting any tracker or torrents). All the best to you who made this long lasting era possible, and thanks to all members for eight unforgettable years! /Staff

This happens occasionally in the file sharing world, and is going to happen again. It happened with Softmupparna and with Sherwoodskogen, to mention two trackers I was at. I downloaded quite a few films from SwePiracy, as it was a so-called private tracker, which means that the quality of releases are better and there are rules to ensure that downloads work efficiently. For example, hit & runs are not allowed. If you download something, you must upload it for X amount of time to give others the opportunity to download. This isĀ  a common rule on private trackers, but is not enforced on PirateBay, an “open” tracker.

Fortunately, and purely by coincidence, I had already registered at two new trackers this week, which seems to be good or even better than SwePiracy.

May downloads

June 5th, 2014 by

The downloads for May were not that many; I am starting to experience space problems, with thousands of DVDRs stacked in jewel cases taking up two walls in my home office. I’ve started to store the discs in plastic pockets now, which saves space, but I am also trying to limit what I download. I’ve tried that before – to concentrate on favourite actors and directors – but it’s too hard when I have such broad taste, haha!

Ambulance
Call, the
Crime Busters
Double trouble (Hill, Spencer)
Frozen ground
Go for it
The Keeper of Lost Causes, aka The Woman in the Cage
Last day on Mars
Odjuret, aka Savage
Ronja Robbersdaughter (extended)
The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared
