The mother of all P2P sites, SuprNova.org was on life support system since the Federal Bureau of Idiots working hand in glove with the RIAA/MPAA went on a P2P crusade; a few days earlier it was taken off the life support system, the official death being registered in the early hours of December 19th. SuprNova.org was the most popular BitTorrent file sharing site. BitTorrent speeds file transfers by segmenting content and downloading parts from multiple users rather than a single server. As you receive a file, so other BitTorrent users are able to grab it from you in the same way. The idea is to ensure a more even sharing of bandwidth between participants... ironic, but supernova went away silently sans the big bang. Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust, SuprNova.org may you rest in peace.
