Now I see they were completely shutdown on Monday. Is this the biggest shutdown since Napster? You could argue the Megaupload might have been bigger, but MU was far more 'legit' than Demonoid. I will mourn this passing. Forget it Josh... it's Cerebustown. Promote this thread!

I wouldn't write them off completely just yet. Even the linked story mentions that it's "too soon to consign the site to history." Also, MegaUpload wasn't "legit." Come on. We all knew what it was for. That's why it was so great! To steer this away from the direction that gives Aaron the shakes, here's some proper "legit" news about BitTorrent - the Internet Archive just announced their new mechanism to host content via over one MILLION torrents (blog.archive.org). I'm most interested in the Prelinger Archives, but it's one of those things I will probably NEVER have the free time to properly consume.

Come on. We all knew what it was for. Yeah, uh... mixtapes, released by the artists. That's what everyone else used it for, right?

I lost it in a hard drive crash, but I had originally e-mailed it to the subjects of the film through megaupload. Oh well. That's gone forever.

Did any of the subjects keep a copy? "Don't Blame CANADA, Blame Yourselves!"
Yeah, I kind of screwed that up. About the best defense I can come up with is "I am REALLY tired today." If I could delete this and start over (or just delete it) I would, but alas....
