Friday

It's finally Friday, been waiting all week. I now have four spare processors, dual Xeon socket 604 processors. It'd be great if I could use them.... Also have some RAM too, 4GB's in total!

Torrentino has been running fine so far, server load has been low. PunBB uses a small amount of CPU usage, Torrentino itself (the system) uses next to nothing. One server for the front end + PHP, another for static content (CSS, images, etc.). I could have another server just for PHP processing, if needed. Well, atleast I'll have the hardware to expand ;)

.NO Domains

.NO domains aren't cheap. Around the 240-400$ area to be general. I was thinking of buying a new domain for Torrentino making it www.torrenti.no.
Anyway, I tweaked Torretino a bit more; editing lighty configurations and such. PHP too!
 
I'm also desperate for a new design for Torrentino, if you have an idea or offer, pleeeeeeeeeeease post a comment.

Beanstalk

Torrentino has been sitting there for a while now. I'm in desperate need of a offshore host (preferable the Netherlands!). If you have any offers, please leave a comment.
 
I don't know whats wrong with people and the grudge they have against torrents. The torrent files do not contain anything incriminating. Sure, some of them may point to 'illegal' or copywritten material but the files don't contain shit all.

The torrent version of ImageShack

The concept came to me the other day. What about a torrent version of ImageShack, the popular image uploading site?
The base of the script (which I named TSquare, TBox is already taken (torrentbox.com)) is completed. It's mainly bound off of Torrentino but is more streamlined for performance issues. There are a couple of design issues (as I just switched to XHTML Strict too).
 

Progress on Torrentino

Worked some more on Torrentino (http://torrentino.2500mhz.info ), fixed some minor bugs. I reloaded (meaning, 'cleaned out') the database so I'm starting new. Tweaked some things so it may be faster than before...ooooooooor maybe not.
Finally got my watch that I ordered on the 12th. 35$ USD from the site, 53$ in total (S&H)........then another 17$ for customs! It works alright though, the write speed is slooooooow, 6MB/s. Oh well, its still pretty cool though.

Progress on Torrentino

I've been working more on Torrentino (TT) lately. I got AdBrite ads on there and I also fixed some other stuff too. I added a admin interface with a login system so everything essential is done. The next thing to fix/add is comments for each torrent and also have multiple pages for showing the files in the torrent. Anyways, I'm going to try Mythbuntu right now, it came in my magazine the yesterday. I'll report on how it goes tomorrow...or so...

(I didn't realize how boring these blog posts are.....jeez)

Tordant

I've been working more on Torrentino now, almost finishing everything that is essential. I only have the admin interface left then I can add extra stuff.
So far, Torrentino is coming together pretty good

Well, there really is nothing else to talk about. Back to coding....

Torrentino

Well I guess I could post about
Torrentino. It a free (anonymous?) public torrent search engine. All coded in PHP of course :D So far, you can add, search, browse and such for torrents. There is lots to fix and add, so check back soon.
Heres the link again: www.torrentino.2500mhz.info

A torrent web site you say?

I finally got back into coding with a friend and are working on a BitTorrent search engine. So far, adding & searching for a torrent works. We're not ready to deploy it into the public yet, I'll post back if anything happens.
