Awesome service, but you might want to consider adjusting the price again, make it update automatically with bitcoinaverage.com API or similar.

Many businesses use bitcoin as a currency where they should use it as a protocol only. Almost all change to $$ at some point. If you have liabilities to return unused credits, you will not want to have received a bitcoin but rather the $16 it was worth last year.
And yeah, the more users you have to convert from one policy to the other, the harder it is. Also magic money that multiplies itself by the service having to lower the price is bad as the old users will not have any incentive to send more money there. 1.6TB of porn he said? Maybe soon it's 1.6PB. Then he can publicly share his link and nobody will ever pay for the service again cause they all live off his balance. As people pay, can you really forbid to share the link?
Deposits are instantly converted to GB, the site doesn't store BTC, it only stores the amount of GB you have purchased.
If you "deposit" 1 BTC to your account now, you'll have 2,000 GB to use, 10 years from now you'll still have 2,000 GB to use (if you don't download anything of course).

Yeah, right. Still it's priced in Bitcoin as if Bitcoin was a currency. Lol.
If the only payment method is BTC, why would it be priced in something else?

Because I want to be sure it's $x per GB when I take a decision to use the service without having to check what it is today. I mean you can take gold or Euro or Argentinian Pesos. All these are stable units of account but bitcoin is just too volatile, which already forced the service to change its price how many times?

This website just froze when I tried to start two torrents.  The xhr-polling web request is taking 20 seconds.

It's concerning that there is no one to talk to about this site. The guy who started this thread isn't responding to PMs and no one is answering their admin@ email.

I accidentally sent 0.8 BTC there a few weeks ago and haven't had any response on returns. The https cert is expired.

RE: is it working?

No. It just crashed while I was trying to zip something.

Take that back. It suddenly started and finished. I d/l'd a pretty large torrent about 4 hours ago and it worked.

Anyone know what a Pending download is?

I don't even have torrent stats (Seeds/Peers).  I would assume this to mean that the torrent has been downloaded and 'submitted' to the their backend torrent system, but it is not downloading for some reason.

No idea. But it won't read magnet links. It looks like it's down.

I can't help thinking this is my fault for accidentally sending them those coins. They won't respond to emails. They won't give the coins back. 0.8 BTC was probably like a year's income for the site and now they're going to bail with it.

Lol. Bitcoin is evil. When you made 'nuff money with your business, you close shop. Heard that about a good restaurant that accepted bitcoin for a year, too  Grin

If .8 BTC is enough cause for an operator to quit the game, we're in a lot more trouble than I thought lol. I can't seriously believe that whoever bought and owns this site now would have paid for it just to trash it like that. Maybe they're dead or something.

Dangerous business. Plus after you die you get reborn as a 17-year-old Chinese kid.

I'm still waiting for my Bitcoinica money.

Hehe. I'm gonna have a Popeye forearm for that little bitch if I ever cross his path. And does wanting to tie up Tihan Seale and take a piss on him make me gay? I hope not.

It's always good to have at least one all-out grudge. Takes the pressure off to get agitated about the merely annoying, e.g. bitfetch going down. 0.8 BTC? That's like a decent cable package if I lived in the States. I'm mostly pissed that I need to find a new way to watch HBO.

Is the website owned by the person listed on the Whois?  If so, they are French and a recent college graduate (and possibly unemployed in which case they should have lots of time).  And you can look them up on linked-in. 

I'm guessing it is worth their time to keep the website up and running. 

Don't day trade.
