|Upgrade and bug fixes|
|Posted by IH on Mar. 27|
A note that we are testing a new database server with potentially unstable Linux kernel and libraries (although we already stress tested it for a week and hasn't managed to break it). Potentially unstable yet also added much scalability improvements, this thing is definitely a screamer.
With the new database, it should smooth out any site slow down for some time to come. Although Bill Gates did say 640K ought to be enough for anybody, so who knows.
With it also came some code changes that inadvertently introduced some new bugs. The main one being you couldn't post new torrents under our
for the last 12 hours. This is now fixed, so please re-post any torrents you wanted to post that sent you an error.
|CBC To Release Program DRM-Free Via BitTorrent|
|Posted by IH on Mar. 20|
Michael Geist's blog:
|Sources indicate that the CBC is set to become the first major North American broadcaster to freely release one of its programs without DRM using BitTorrent. This Sunday, CBC will air Canada Next Great Prime Minister. The following day, it plans to freely release a high-resolution version via peer-to-peer networks without any DRM restrictions. This development is important not only because it shows that Canada's public broadcaster is increasingly willing to experiment with alternative forms of distribution, but also because it may help crystallize the net neutrality issue in Canada.
The CBC's mandate, as provided in the Broadcasting Act, requires it to make its programming "available throughout Canada by the most appropriate and efficient means." Using BitTorrent allows the CBC to meet its statutory mandate, yet with ISPs such as Rogers engaging in non-transparent traffic shaping, millions of Canadians may be unable to fully access programming funded by tax dollars. If the CBC experiment is successful, look for more broadcasters to do the same and for the CRTC to face mounting pressure to address net neutrality concerns.
interviewed with CBC
before, a major broadcaster in Canada, I'm glad they are now experimenting with this. I had opportunity talking to the reporter at CBC and elsewhere, there seems to be much good will towards P2P technologies like BitTorrent, with the perception that it together with the internet can be the next generation channel (not in the analog sense) of media distribution. And CBC's mandate to make materials "available throughout Canada by the most appropriate and efficient means" is an interesting one. The media (especially mass broadcast media) should serve the public good first and foremost, and with the UK's BBC already using
and their own
perhaps government funded media (partially or fully) is what will spark mainstream media adoption of P2P distribution.
And strengthening the case against illegitimate traffic shaping and net neutrality issues while at it, turning the tables around the perception of illegitimacy over BitTorrent... irony at its finest.
Also, the positive comments on
CBC's announcement of using BitTorrent
is interesting too. To fellow Canadians,
tune in to CBC this Sunday
(assuming you have a TV of course). For otherwise would-be pirates everywhere, tune in to the torrent swarm after (which should be promptly picked up on isoHunt's index). Lets show CBC that when they do the right thing, We The People will respond with popular enthusiasm.

|isoHunt.com blocked in Dubai?|
|Posted by IH on Mar. 11|
I received an email that isohunt.com is inaccessible from Dubai, but verified-p2p-links.com works (alternate domain for isohunt.com). Can anyone else confirm?
We've also had issues with ISP's in different countries, either have problem accessing isohunt.com entirely or have extremely slow DNS in resolving isohunt.com (60s+). I'm not sure if there's some government sanctioned filtering in place (like in Dubai), but any report of network problems to isohunt.com is appreciated so we can see if we can find workarounds. Reply under this topic on verified-p2p-links.com, or post on our
(assuming you can access Wikipedia).
This is another case in point of why we need
