DIME status?

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

Re: DIME status?

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.

For those of you who don't want to join their yahoo group, here is where you can see what the mods/owners have to say about downtime:

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.

Re: DIME status?

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.

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.
