Happy pirate independence day!

by downloadiso on May 31, 2013

7 years ago, our ISP was raided and the pigs in blue took off with all our servers (and about 100 unrelated servers too). Did we bend over and ask for forgiveness? Hell no, within 3 days we were back. Here’s how we put it back then:

here are some reasons why TPB is down sometimes - and how long it usually takes to fix: 
Tiamo gets *very* drunk and then something crashes: 4 days
Anakata gets a really bad cold and noone is around: 7 days
The US and Swedish gov. forces the police to steal our servers: 3 days
.. yawn.

Years come and go and now we’re soon about to celebrate our 10th birthday. People have changed, the hardware sure has changed. We’re now distributed around a vast number of cloud services and as you might have noticed, we’re doing some domain hopping too.

Our message is as it’s always been: We decide if the site dies or not, no one else.

So today, 7 years after the raid, we celebrate our independence once again. Thank you for being a part of all this!
