Hey Everybody,

Hope it isn't considered poor form to discuss other ROIO sites here...but I was just wondering if anyone happens to know what's going on over at DIME?

The site has been down for me all day...without even the usual 'stopped for maintenance' placeholder, just the browser's "This webpage is not available" message. Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks,
delysidd

If you join their yahoo group - bt-dimeadozen-org - then you can see what the mods/owners have to say. Currently, the front-end is down, not the tracker.

Currently, the front-end is down, not the tracker.

So for idiots like me, what does that mean? Why can the front end be down but the tracker still work? When bt.etree is down for maintenance my seeds there show up in red in uTorrent but right now everything is green.

The front-end & tracker are not necessarily dependent on one another.
You can't grab new torrents because you can't access the front-end, and therefore the site.
But anything you are currently connected to on the tracker will continue to run.

Why can the front end be down but the tracker still work?

Because they're separate, independent pieces of software. When the entry point to add/modify the tracker is down, you can't get at the tracker, but the tracker still works.

Real-world analogy. You leave your house, and remember you've left the oven on. When you try to get back in, you find your door lock has failed. The oven still operates. The entry point has failed so you can't get at your oven, but that hasn't brought the oven down.

I have never had much success with Dime, whether it be the site being down, having glitches/bugs, or the overall restrictive environment the uppity admins try to maintain which seems to block most IP addresses I try to access it with.

Subject: [bt-dimeadozen-org] Error: The requested URL could not be retrieved


As of this evening, I'm getting the error in the subject line when trying to access Dime via any link, even when just searching for "dimeadozen" via Google, then clicking to it from the results. This is happening in Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Fire Fox. Anyone else seeing this and do we know why this is happening? Has my ISP finally had enough of my downloading antics and put a stop to it?

The rest of the text on the error page:

you read my mind - even when that site does work it seems like there's always some kink in the system where pages either won't load or there's false error messages whenever you try and up something, which probably explains the lack of seeders on a lot of stuff. Most of the time when I try and visit, the site tells me access forbidden because they actually try to stop tor users from going there :lmao:. Their "support wiki" is a big clusterfuck too I'm glad most of the good stuff winds up on guitars101

Our regular housekeeping downtime is every day at 06:25 AM CET/CEST [as applicable, depending on the season], normally lasting ten minutes. This is to be expected and will not be noted in the entries below nor in DIME's Twitter feed.

Current information about the status of the tracker servers is now displayed on DIME's front page.

If you see no entries here, then all known problems have been cleared up.

Timestamps are by CEST (Central European Summer Time, +0200) or CET (Central European Time, +0100) as marked.
