Without any hesitation I’d say, Demonoid is one of the most popular and useful torrent tracker on web. Unlike PirateBay, Demonoid is a private tracker. So not all users will gain access to Demonoid torrents. Only selected users will get access and new users will be allowed only when they are invited by existing users.
As we can see last couple of weeks Demonoid is down for god sake. Some bunch of bad ass hackers launched a Massive DDos attack on Demonoid servers and brought the site down. Now the future of the site looks very grim to most of the users.
Though things looks ugly the Demonoid admin is so determined to bring the site back online once again.
I don’t plan on shutting down, but if Im going to fix it I have to do it properly
So far the good news is though the future of the site looks very gray, the admin is very much promising to bring up the site live again. All we can do right now is wait for him to fix and bring the site back online once again.

When we use private torrent tracker we’ll get more speed than public torrent trackers. Few weeks back I come across a tip which may help you to increase the download speed of public torrents.
In public torrents, most of the time people leech and never seed. As the result number of seeds will be very low. Some time, same torrent will be released on several public torrent trackers. We can take advantage of that.
Open your utorrent program (or similar program) and right click on the public torrent and choose properties. Under the General tab, insert following trackers.
As you do above operation you have the probability of increasing the number of seeders. Also remember that, this trick won’t always help you and some time it’ll bring more leeches than seeders, so beware of the consequences too
PS: Never try this trick for private trackers. You may get banned
Finally I managed to install Ubuntu in my HP Pavilion dv9000. Usually HP Recovery Disk will not allow you to partition the disk. I was looking for several methods and couldn’t find a method.
Later I got Chanux on Yahoo messenger and found that even Ubuntu OS got an build in Disk Partition tool. Believe me unlike Window’s partition tool, its very straight forward and graphical interface.
So things are fine with Ubuntu but I was missing Utorrent so badly. Utorrent is not supported by Linux OS but you can do some work around and make it work in Ubuntu.
First you’ll need Wine to run uTorrent in your machine. To get wine execute following command in Terminal (Application → Accessories → Terminal).
sudo apt-get install wine
This command will install wine.
Then its time to install uTorrent.
You check the latest version of utorrent in the download page and give the url of the download in above command.
Then it’ll be like installing utorrent on Windows it’ll ask location to install and all.
Whenever you wanna run utorrent double click the shortcut on the desktop or go to Applications → Wine → utorrent.
PS: Today onwards I’ll be having a new category “Ubuntu”
