I *told* you we're just like Google!

More evidence if needed that the site was not so dissimilar to Google.

http://torrentfreak.com/oink-supports-the-hydra-071027/

"After being hijacked by the police for a few days, OiNK.cd returned to its rightful owner. The tracker won’t return anytime soon but OiNK.cd is now linking to a Google search that links to a list of private BitTorrent trackers."

Digg it now! http://digg.com/tech_news/OiNK_Makes_a_Statement...

Edit: Some people seem confused about what a Hydra is. Wikipedia explains.

It's kinda brilliant to compare any website to google.

Comparing OiNK.cd to Google is bloody brilliant

Nobody involved in the original OiNK site is involved with the OiNK2 project.

Comparing OiNK to google is the weakest arguement I've heard come out this whole thing.

wafflehat, o2, boink are now going to be separate? What a load of bull.. yeah, Hydra might get two more heads after having one chopped off, but that's a little silly, isn't it? Unless you're implying that all of those OiNK forks are going to be nearly identical, then that makes sense, I guess.. sorta.

The problem with many small trackers is the selection of links. You can find more links on a large tracker which has a wide variety of links instead of having to search many small trackers to find a link.

Maybe there is a way to span a tracker over multiple servers and still have a central ratio database or something like that?

oink should sue them for hijacking his domain! it happens all the time and it's against the law!

Paine, can you comment on the supposed change of the DNS records for oink.cd to point to TPB servers?

is BOiNK supported by OiNK the person and the site staff? if what has been said about BOiNK is true, it would be seemingly contrary to a lot of what OPP stood for.

oink isn't a mythical creature! silly gooses!

Just tracert yourself and use RIPE to see oink.cd & TPB connections.

I guess since the real Oink servers are still in police custody, DNS records were changed to direct to a server that can be controlled.

My guess is that this is a consequence of the Oil of the 21'st Century Conference, and (hopefully) doesn't reflect a permanent change in the relationship between OPP and TPB but is more of a symbolic gesture of solidarity. Any staff know the deal?

If, by some serious miracle, the authorities can't find anything to tarnish OiNK with (which is incredibly doubtful with the amount of pricks involved) he has some definite cases for slander. At least in the US he would. I'm not so sure about UK law.

If I might digress, though, thank you for this blog! It's so nice to see some names I recognize. I've felt lost all week, checking TorrentFreak, etc.

Viva OiNK!

So OiNK is only worried at what legal consequences he will have to face in the UK and he is not thinking about bringing OiNK back too bad :( Why dont some of the old Mods do it?

This pretty well proves Google does the exact same thing. Google even points you DIRECTLY to the file:

Best of all, the hydra has often been used as a symbol for the enemies of capitalism, for the masses that the ruling class needs to, but cannot quite, tame. Here's the historians Linebaugh and Rediker from their book The Many-Headed Hydra (which is about colonialism and the English working class): “From the beginning of English colonial expansion in the early seventeenth century through the metropolitan industrialization of the early nineteenth, rulers referred to the Hercules-hydra myth to describe the difficulty of imposing order on increasingly global systems of labor. They variously designated dispossessed commoners, transported felons, indentured servants, religious radicals, pirates, urban laborers, soldiers, sailors, and African slaves as the numerous, ever-changing heads of the monster” (4).

I am sad at the loss of oink; it was a place to find new music, old I hadn't heard in a while, but most of all a community. I hope to see it's return, but fear this may have been the ultimate blow to oink.

The though of defeating sites like oink is naive and childish: they cannot stop something that has so much support behind it. A hundred main stream bands with fancy lawyers vs. millions of "pirates"? Good fucking luck.
