Suprnova.org Shut Down

The largest and best BitTorrent site on the ‘net, “Suprnova.org”:http://www.suprnova.org/ has been shut down.

From the site:

As you have probably noticed, we have often had downtimes. This was because it was so hard to keep this site up! But now we are sorry to inform you all, that SuprNova is closing down for good in the way that we all know it. We do not know if SuprNova is going to return, but it is certainly not going to be hosting any more torrent links. We are very sorry for this, but there was no other way, we have tried everything.

This is a big loss for the Bittorrent community, but I expect they are shutting down the site to avoid being “raided”:http://www.theregister.co.uk/2004/12/14/finnish_police_raid_bittorrent_site/print.html or have other legal action taken against them.

For a list of alternative sites, check out this “list”:http://www.slyck.com/news.php?story=545. (At the time I wrote this, their server was down, hopefully it will be back up soon.)

*Edit:* “TorrentBits.com”:http://torrentbits.org/ has also been shut down without reason.
