    The Pirate Bay in Egypt?

    Apparently The Pirate Bay has moved to Egypt - The Pirate Bay - The world's largest BitTorrent tracker



    I thought it was real for a minute - and judging by the comments - so do quite a few others!

    For those who may be filtered:
    Due to the new copyright legislation that are going to take effect from today we had to move all of the system outside of Europe.

    We decided to move to the desert of Sinai in Egypt since we feel that we'll be safe there. Tiamo has already got himself a permanent place to live and will reside in Sinai from now. Those of you who need to get in contact with him can use the contact page.

    In Sinai we've set up the systems with three redundant fibre links. Besides local connectivity in Egypt we also have connectivity to Saudi-Arabia and Israel. Jordan is quite close and we hope to install a link there as well as soon as our budget will reach that level. This way we're actually hosted in Asia as well as Africa.

    More updates on this will come later today, hopefully. Everything will be the same as before, we will have slightly higher latency for European and American visitors.

    A special note to Ifpi: Moses walked in the desert of Sinai for 40 years. Our servers will be active for at least another 40 as well.

    We've used a perl script to write messages to the printer LCD screens.

    We are just trying to think of a message for the office printer to really freak them out.
