Download course with bit torrent does not work

Downloading the crash course DVD with Bit Torrent does not work.  I understand there is no support but the Pirate Bay and Minerva servers have been taken down.  I thought you should know :-)

Re: Download course with bit torrent does not work

Thanks for the information.  Just a couple of days ago, Mininova decided to comply with the ruling of the Court of Utrecht and remove all content from their servers:

We've already applied for a Content Distribution account through Mininova, so hopefully it will be back up and running before too long.  As for The Pirate Bay, they are still in court and nothing has been removed from their site.  The torrents are still available from The Pirate Bay:

Thanks for your response.

The torrents are there on Pirate Bay but the ISO file never starts to download.  I was thinking the ISO is not available.

It might be because the number of peers available on The Pirate Bay is rather low right now.  Unless there are enough peers to start the download, the torrent will just sit in the queue.  Once the torrent is available on Mininova, I'll make an announcement about it on the Technical News & Updates thread: http://www.peakprosperity.com/forum/technical-news-updates/26591

I have successfully completed the upload of new torrents to Mininova.  Check out the 4th post on this thread for more information: http://www.peakprosperity.com/comment/62563#comment-62563
