Swedish Police Raid The Pirate Bay, Site Offline

Easy Skanking
Back up the same day

The Pirate Bay was back up shortly after the Sweden server raid at
Once again, a completely ineffectual action on the parts of the "authorities" results in only a few hours of downtime and no change in the face of digital piracy.

Short lived as usual.

Edit to add -
The whole Pirate Bay magnet archive :


Hi JFK, will this magnet

Hi JFK, will this magnet archive get us Torrent files? and how to use / or open this archive

As long as people are still

As long as people are still seeding the files, yes it is usable.
I am on windows with gobs of ram and a respectable APU.
I opened the file ( "complete" ) in notepad ( took about 3 minutes to load, and reported "not responding" while it was loading. ) and the result is an ASCII file with the title, filesize in bytes, guessing seeds, guessing peers, and the equivalent of a magnet link for each torrent, delimited with the pipe symbol ( | ). ( seeds and peers is useless because they are always changing and this is a static file )
You HAVE to have DHT and peer exchange for it to work because there is no real tracker.

Probably "notepad ++" would be a better way to open it.
For example the first complete entry is as follows :
You would prepend "magnet:?xt=urn:btih:" to the "6e43d748d9446e3cddec69ce9b2ababb51bbf827" resulting in :
which you would plug into your bit torrent client.

For the above example, at the moment there are zero seeds and 4 peers.

Hope that helps.
( That is basically how I acquired "MadManBookOfFormulas.pdf" for another thread here. )

Thanks JFK

Thanks JFK

Not able to get it to work. I keep getting "Unable to load magnet:?xt.........." any ideas?

You are welcome.

Which client are you using ? ( version number may also be helpful - utorrent 2.2.1 here )
Which torrent are you trying to DL ?

uTorrent Plus 3.4.2

uTorrent Plus 3.4.2

I was trying random magnet links just to see if it would work

the costa rica clone site is known to be serving fake torrents masquerading as posted by known tpb members, but not actually by them. Avoid it.

But its working, no fake

All tpb link are fakes fellas.... only "legit" service to access OLDER files still hosted thru DHT and peers is

As said before.. this is ONLY before the load balancer was downed. anythin posted after this on ANY clone minus the one above is subject to malware etc..

Be safe..

Just noticed that they are hosting "Path to 911-2 of 5-ABC movie of the 911 commission report.mpg.mpg",
