Submission + - Legendary Demonoid BitTorrent Tracker Apparently Back Online (torrentfreak.com) 1

Freshly Exhumed writes: TorrentFreak has broken the news that after more than a year of downtime the Demonoid tracker came back online on January 9, 2014. The tracker is linked to nearly 400,000 torrent files and more than a million peers, which makes it one of the largest working BitTorrent trackers on the Internet. There is no word yet on when the site will make a full comeback, but the people behind it say they are working to revive one of the most famous file-sharing communities. As the single largest semi-private BitTorrent tracker that ever existed, Demonoid used to offer a home to millions of file-sharers. Note that this is apparently the original Demonoid and not the d2 site that claims to be using the Demonoid database.

  • All my member data carried over to D2. But that is where it ended, the content was like a day on the wayback machine and the site was otherwise useless. Nevertheless, it will be great if Demonoid is truly back in its original, and/or 2nd and/or 3rd iterations. The D2 site sucks.

Is it possible that software is not like anything else, that it is meant to be discarded: that the whole point is to always see it as a soap bubble?

Working...
