    Hi gang,
    We would like to add a little password protection to the site. Nothing too drastic, but something more than we’ve got.

    Starting on April 15, 2020, you will need to enter a password to visit the site. The magic word is eephour.

    Thank you, friend. I feel more secure already!

    maybe people can reply that they’ve read it (even anonymously) so that we can be sure that the bulk of visitors will be able to come back after April 15?

    Cryptical Envelopment is a good idea.

    @A 3072-bit Nonny Moose:
    Cryptical Envelopment can be guessed due to social engineering by a deadicated Head with only the first three letters and one cap. eephour can be guessed with only two or three (and that might be a good thing), so, yes, better but only marginally. This isn’t the NSA.

    (i just saw the reply)

    Sorry, I didn’t mean that “Cryptical Envelopment” should be the actual password. Rather, that using a password for the site was a good idea: Cryptical (use some kind of encryption, which includes passwords) Envelopment (wrap up the site). Looks like I was being a little to… cryptic. And thanks for not being the NSA.

    Yeah, the real reason it is what it is is that it’s short and sweet and easily remembered. Tho I’d guess that many visitors return time and time again for what they find here and so that fosters a good memory. And the fact that it follows Spidergawd in the gorgeous sequence.

    I dont think its a security issue really but I’ve had leeches from Beijing and the Republic of Georgia on a couple of my torrents the last few days.

    I dont know if they’re using spidergawd per se, or finding the torrents through a dht search engine

    https://btdig.com/4bedd95ebd595348c523da3868acf355e3f5522b/beatles

    I’m certain from the name of the info text this was the one I upped a couple days back.

    I don’t know if there’s a good way to mask the torrents without going to a lot of hassel changing all file names to so.ething very benign and uninteresting sounding.

    Just some rambling thoughts on a snowy Denver day.
