Apparently the download script my site is using has a minor flaw - as in it was using 10GB of RAM on every server it was hosted on (3 mirrors if you're counting :lol:). Needless to say, Dreamhost didn't think that was too funny and took the script down, hence the download issues over the last few hours.

Until we can get the script fixed, I've replaced the links on my site with direct links to the files. Enjoy them while they last ;)

Sorry for the inconvenience. Now move along, nothing to see here...

I think Dreamhost may be beginning to hate our project. LOL!

Well, you really can't blame them for taking it down. There's obviously a flaw in the script somewhere along the way.

Some advice if you do decide to use BT:

Bit Comet Tracker - super efficient from the benchmarks I've seen

Broadcast Machine for seeding from your hosts. I'm not sure if you can control upload limits though, maybe in the new release they'll let you. Or maybe you can talk to your hosts and convince them to let you run a BT client (yeah right)

I need a PHP based tracker. My site is hosted on Linux-based servers.

I HAD one running last night, had a couple of seeds on a few files (mainly from ryanvm.nets front page). But the pc's in a remote site and it appears to have fallen over..... It's always fine when I am on site.... wierd....

In the mean time why don't we all get together and run a temporary tracker under Azureus till ryan has the time and resources to make it more efficient?

I dare say most if not all of us run a BT client......

We could make it trackerless, use DHT, allow external torrents (uploads) and beg ryan for the hosting of the tiny .torrent files so even if the tracker drops the files are still avaliable!.
