An Early Christmas Present: Demonoid is Back Online

Just yet another quick mention in case you didn’t see the article on Torrent Freak that Demonoid is back online and sort of working.  The forums are still offline but maybe that’s a good thing as it’ll give the moderators a chance to review the rules one more time and hopefully pay attention to this this time around.  The servers still seem to be stressed a bit as 404’s and Server overloaded errors abound. The tracker has been up for awhile now.  The indexer and the main site have now returned. Yes, I have invites but no I’m not giving them out as I don’t want to put my own account at risk.

Demonoid Opens Up the Gates

Demonoid, a BitTorrent tracker, has opened itself up for new registrations.  Not sure how long they’ll take them.  Be sure to grab an account if you’re into that sort of thing. Of course this will mean their server will be slow for the next week or so….

Looking back at January

Breakfast was cool.  Had eggs, bacon, and biscuits.  I think I was the only non-church person there so i had to introduce myself a number of times but I didn’t mind.  I walk by the church twice every day when I head over to UNCC.  Didn’t get any pictures as my batteries died with the other breakfast this morning under the bridge. I finally got a chance to look over the most read posts for January.  I probably should do some sort of Top Post widget in the sidebar. (edit: Done now.) – Download Dragon Magazine and it’s Part #2 article. – Mac Desktop Wallpapers – 50 Things NOT to do at Hogwarts (And I feel bad about that as it’s not even mine.) – Robot Chicken: Charlie Brown And The Great Pumpkin – Download Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows? (You can but not with those links.) – Family Guy Videos – Rock Lobster – Movable Type 4.1 gets released (*shrug* All I said was that it was released.) – Crash on Volturnus – Chapter 1 (I really should go back and work on that. I liked writing that stuff.) – Pairings (Another old Daria fanfiction piece that I had written way back when.) – How to stop the irritating “Updating your computer is almost complete – Restart Now?”...

Abandonia – Home of abandonware DOS games

Andrea reminded me recently about playing old DOS games that she’s found on the net. I’ve been doing some searching online trying to find some of the old games that I used to play. Here’s a site called Abandonia where I found a number of them. Heck, they even have Sword of the Samurai for download.
