Its interesting to know that at one point there was a relationship between BitComet, the C++ client and P2Pforums.com. Not to long ago P2Pforums hosted all the help and suggestion boards for BitComet, apparently some things have changed.
Whiel visiting BitComet.com to see what the latest release and updates are I noticed a link to their forums. Now their support, suggestions and Lite forums are located on BitComet servers. Perhaps steamlining their support and development is the best way to go, especially considering all the issues they have had with previous releases. If they expect private communities to support their client, then listening to the users AND implementing their suggestions is required.
In addition, they have a link to a subdomain for TopList.BitComet.com, but the page never loads.

Seems like somewhat of a risky move to implement a toplist into the Client site. I would hate to see Bitcomet shut down for pirating reasons and support of copyright infringement. However, no decision can be made since the site never loaded. Happy sharing until next time.Read More
The highly anticipated AllPeers extension for FireFox has officially launched in Beta. Their website AllPeers.com was once a hub for early beta testing signup, but now features a flash tutorial and other goodies. The most notable section of the site would be the PeerPressure blog, official AllPeers Blog.
What’s disturbing are the number of features that would have been considered basic additions to this extension, as noted by The Grayline.
Some of the more notable features that have been left out of the initial offering are,
interface for handling standard torrents. a lite version. bandwidth management. community specific sharing.
Grouper.com in it’s infancy was a hotbed of warez swapping and a kazaa alternative to most. It’s cumbersome controls and resource intensive software ruled it out as a choice to hardcore p2p enthusiasts. However, because of it’s user friendliness it seems to have caught on and is now changing it’s ways.
Sony announced they have purchased Grouper.com and intend to market legal videos via this p2p video portal ring, thingy. Check it out for yourself at Grouper.com.Read More
Phillips, a major electronics manufacturer, has developed a method for fingerprinting warez. The fingerprinting is directly targeted toward video and not necessarily music or applications, although it appears the technology could be converted.
By fingerprinting the certain video segments content owners could identify if/when/where the content was stolen. This process by which segments are fingerprinted is controlled by Phillips on a central server station and proprietary algo. (Surprise, surprise, surprise)
Needless to say that this process is being backed with the “intent” to legally distribute video on p2p networks. So, this tracking is being accepted amongst the big circles…. Get the low down on video fingerprinting by Phillips.Read More
I’m still having fun with the AllPeers extension for firefox, checking out the support forums and adding friends. However, there has been one issue that has been driving me up a wall.
Whenever you close FireFox, AllPeers minimizes the browser to your toolbar. Well, when I hit X I want the bitch to close, not minimize. After a few days of frustration I found a fix.
View your FireFox extension, click on AllPeers, click options. There you will find the ability to turn off minimize to tray when closing the browser.Read More
Just happened upon a new blog tonight while doing the dead-man surf, which is the zombie like state I’m in before going to bed. The blog in question is TorrentFreak and has been added to my blogroll for my visitors to consume.
While perusing my favorite tags over at Technorati I found the article How The PirateBay Raid Changed Sweden and it caught me off guard. Mainly because the effects of p2p stretch much further than our wallets, social networking online, and our struggle with archaic(sp?) law.
Thanks for the recap TorrentFreak.Read More
