    Demonoid back on track!

    Newspost - Dec/13/2009 Test run

    Hello!
    We are currently testing the newly written code. More downtime is hopefully not necessary, but might be a possibility. Welcome back, we missed you!


    After reading their "be patient" message for almost 3 months, there's light at the and of the tunnel (and a lot of torrents)



    From Torrentfreak:

    Christmas Comes Early For BitTorrent – Demonoid is Back

    Written by enigmax on December 13, 2009 As millions of people wait for the arrival of Christmas in just a couple of weeks time, the festivities have come early for BitTorrent fans. A few hours ago the mighty Demonoid fully returned and the good news is that there appears to be little data loss. Users are feverishly uploading fresh torrents right now.



    In September, Demonoid, one of the world’s most important and well-loved trackers, went down with overwhelming hardware problems.
    An update on the situation was not good, with the site owners forecasting severe data loss. Some user data and torrent files were predicted to be lost forever and the site’s code had been seriously damaged.
    Then, on November 5th, Demonoid’s tracker began to function again, which was followed by another announcement by the site owners. None of the negative rumors and speculation were true – Demonoid would soon return.
    “The parts of the site code that got deleted are being rewritten and should be ready soon. We are also working to try and minimize the data loss as much as possible,” they announced.
    Since then, nothing much has happened, but a few hours ago Demonoid users discovered they are to get an early Christmas present.

    At around 1:30am EST, Demonoid reappeared and started accepting logins from registered users.
    “Hello! We are currently testing the newly written code. More downtime is hopefully not necessary, but might be a possibility. Welcome back, we missed you!” the admins said in an announcement.

    In respect of the concerns over data loss, it appears that the latest database entries run to Friday September 11th 2009, but of course, Demonoid users are already uploading new torrents, reported to be as many as 150 thus far.
    A TorrentFreak reader who as been following the situation since the site’s return told us: “Some users on the IRC channel (which still is active) report not being able to log in. Those that can log in have all noticed that their ratios were pretty much what they remembered them to be before the long downtime. I was able to log in just fine on my first attempt with correct ratio as well.”
    As the site deals with various issues, it became a little unstable around 2 to 3 hours after its initial return and then went down again around 4:00am EST.
    Although Demonoid’s RSS feeds aren’t functioning, at the time of writing the site appears to be running again, and displaying their famous demon logo all decked out in a santa hat.
    Christmas really has come early for Demonoid fans. All that is need now is a gift for everyone in the community – a period of open registrations.

    Why would they have to rewrite the code for the site? Haven't they heard of back-ups?

    Empornium was never down. Oops, I forgot you live in the land of freedom.

    Been using Pirate bay while demonoid was down and found it's actually better as far as finding stuff that I want seeded.

    Now I just looked at demonoid and it's servers busy again. Think it's done it's dash.

    I've found that http://isohunt.com/ is very reliable.

    I missed 2 episodes of a french serie and found it very easy there. At a very decent download speed.

    I've been using Demonoid ever since I posted that comeback message last Monday. Exept for the occasional "server too busy" no problems at all. Already 'borrowed' a few documentaries, some music and something to read.
    The only difference I noticed is that a few of the 'old' posters have not returned, yet....

    Hehe... just logged in with my old account data. Added another bookmark to the folder 'Downloads'.

    Seems there are still a few issues with the site and because of that the page to register an invite code draws a blank.... you'll have to wait, spliff.
