Hosting found

Thanks to everyone who offered hosting, the information has been passed along to the party concerned. If you haven't already been contacted, you weren't chosen, sorry.

On another topic, ar33ome3 has come up with this awesome OiNK-themed Halloween picture. I've posted it below, with his permission.



The desktop-sized version can be found at his blog, http://enjoys.it/2007/10/31/oink-halloween-wallpaper/

Thanks, ar33ome3!

I miss OiNK, this is so much good news.

This is the best day of my week so far (along with other things from real life, don't think I'm such a geek).

Nice! My new wallpaper. ;)

So as a former member of OiNK who doesn't have any proof besides a few torrent files. How the hell can I get into any of these new sites :S

if you ever need more hosting or mirror sits, give me a buzz.

extrakuhar said...

What.cd doesn't require proof of oink membership. i'm sure there will be waffles invites flying all over the place within a few weeks, too.

I'm anxious to see what this new site Paine is hosting will be. Possibly OiNK forums? Time will tell.

azc said...

^ Just to be clear, the hosting is not for Paine or myself, but for OiNK.cd

I'm hoping when OINK returns all old users will be able to get back on without jumping through hoops for an invite. I was on for close to 2 years and maintained a good ratio. I'm still on Indietorrents.
Anyway...this Blog is great and I look forward to the future.

btw i got it as my new wallpaper:D

Dizzy said...

Not to sound like a stickler, but this blog is getting dry. I mean, the community is alive and rapidly blossoming into 2 different entitites at the moment, and a battle for prosperity is about to begin. big things are happening, and nothing is even being mentioned here... honestly, is Boink really looking to be that promising?

John said...

you have a piont dizzy - this blog could be used to have everyone settle on a specific alternative, but what makes you think that's the purpose? i think you're looking for the oinkmemorial blog (where's that rolleyes smiley?)

Damn and My unmetered servers could have gone to good use.

Erin said...

Hopefully when waffles is up and running it won't be too hard to come by invites...

waffles is run by 14 year olds. don't expect miracles from it.

Sorry to be off the subject, but I was wonder how OiNK was doing? I really do miss him, just by knowing hes not around ]=

Awesome ar33ome3! Much pig luv to you :)

Jared said...

hey Paine, can you make a post about how much the memorial blog just flat out sucks? i bet if you did, the kid who runs it would copy and paste your entry as news.

and cool image, btw.

great wallpaper my plasma just got a new idle picture;P

Paine, this is Jep. Can you pleaes let people through either a blog or otherwise that just because I'm a moderator on the "unofficial" forums doesn't mean I know anything about what's going on with the actual OiNK team? I've been receiving PMs on OiNK one after one about straight forward news on what you're talking about. If you're not going to do it for me, do it for the other moderators you may favor on the ohax forum.

Cheers

VivaGardner said...

God I miss OiNK. These other sites have no community and the admins are dicks. They are power hungry! Come back to us OiNK

Anonymous said...

paine your blog being linked to from the oink.cd is going to shut so many stupid kids up.

cheers

Brice Timmons said...

I'm with everybody on the invite front. I'm not much for chat, forums, and such, but I was on OiNK for two years and maintained a high ratio. I hope someone will invite me back. I briefly took a look at iTunes after OiNK went down. F-ing stupid. How does anyone feel sorry for an industry that built its entire fortune on a single piece of technology and wasn't clever enough to adapt when it started to be replaced?

Dark Stryder said...

I know you said that hosting has been found but I would also like to offer my services. I have a huge pipe at my disposal (currently 30 Meg x 30 Meg fiber) and space for a server or two. Maybe some private mirroring and/or a dedicated TOR server?

Tommy said...

Hey even though its becoming dry (which is of course, nothings really happening other than people jumping on what and waffles) doesn't mean that I don't check it every day and appreciate the time & effort. Paine you rock, keep it up!

raZna said...

don't panic around , i am sure that all those old OiNK members are all day long digging for updates , not to be left with their eyes in the sun when v2 tracker...

I miss the tracker so much, but this is also a good way to re-listen to all the torrents i ever uploaded / downloaded .

I wish a nice day for all the OiNK Community Members.

Thank you OiNK.

i heart oink paine you are cool and thank you for having an oink forum of sorts.

and i so agree with what the 2nd anonymous guy said with jumping through hoops its like ex oink members arent even members. so lame

Anonymous said...

i heart oink

paine thank you a million times hopefully there wont be any hoops for old oink users to get on again like waffles

Anonymous said...

Thanks for DDoSing waffles, Paine. We know you have a grudge against the dudes over there.

Paine said...

he's fine, he just has a lot of stuff to do in real life at the moment (understandably)

Anonymous said...

If you, can. May you send him my wishes?

It seem like everyones forgot about OiNK himself.

Its a shame really ]= .

OMFG oink.cx.la needs more money and more time lol!!

beeboy said...

Big love going out to OiNK.
Also to Paine, it's nice to have some level headed commentary.

I'm lucky enough to be on both new sites, and they both have promise.
I wouldn't get in a panic about invites yet (easy for me to say, I know) Both sites are aiming to be big, so there should be space for all.

I can't connect to waffles at all, and what.cd is slow as hell, so it's irrelevant just now anyway.

fatmafia said...

dizzy said earlier that 'a battle for prosperity is about to begin'. It's a shame peple think this has to be about competition. After the OiNK downfall I'll certainly be trying to maintain a presence on more than one private tracker - I only had my 2 yr OiNK account and was totally cut out after 23/10. OiNK was great because it was quirky and individual and felt like a real community, it was not trying to be THE tracker. Surely such elitism/competition can only harm our wee sharing caring scene. All hydra heads need fed. Oh, and cheers for the blog Paine.

One more to be added to scam and hoax list.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for letting us know what is going on. There will never be another Oink. Hopefully one day we can get it back.

lala land said...

"2 different entities"?
"both new sites"?
Are we talking about Libble and ...?
Just got on Libble, don't feel the soul that I felt on Oink.

Sean said...

I hope this new site could be the "real" new oink instead of waffles and what.cd. but if its just an oink forum im cool with that :)

Sylar said...

Seems the site is down. If you need hosting, What.cd? would be glad to donate some CPU time. Just look for Sylar.

How much is shipping from cafepress to England?

TheWhiteRhino said...

Whoa whoa whoa, hold the phone. So you are saying that the initial invites have been sent and if you weren't on the list, sorry? That's it? A little heartless, don't you think?

I've donated and my ration was tight as a drum, WTF? Thought you were all power to the people, and whatnot?

OiNK was the best, no question about it. Except that pink colour, loved the orange style sheet though!

Just one question, haven't really kept myself up to date lately: Will the new "official" oinksite be hosted with piratebay or have I missunderstood it all?
