Born again Torrentino

After virtually no offers on Torrentino,Torrentino is back up and running. (Might be slow at the moment). Now, to fit in a niche, it's a electronic music tracker + search engine. Enough to satisfy my needs ;) I'm a psytrance addict and sometimes it's hard to find the albums I want. Anyway, it has new categories (numerical system now, used to be by keyword) and most of the code has been looked over and over...and over.

Edit: I no longer own Torrentino.net

 

I read this way back when, and thought it was a pretty cool project. Now, I've sorta invented my own take on it. Here's how it works:

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 ;)

Moving Torrentino

Finally found a place for Torrentino. Now, it uses two servers; one for dynamic content the other for static content. I modified the backend a bit, so it might be slightly faster.
The design still need some work. So if anyone has any ideas, or would like to create a usable design for Torrentino; go ahead! If so, your name will be mentioned on the about page.
 
Anyway, I'm off to go tweak some stuff....
 

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.

Monday!

Yay Monday! Not.
I got nothing done today (coding wise), which isn't a problem but apparently my IP changed. Weird, got home tried to access my server. Nope. SSH'd using the internal IP, works. External. Nope. Did a simple 'whats my ip' search and my IP had chnaged during the day, which is really...strange (may be its just me). (I don't think anyone cares)

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.
