Just out of interest, I flicked over to www.suprnova.org. I think that we all kind of saw this coming, given that this latest outage had something of a nasty feel to it.
"As you have probably noticed, we have often had downtimes. This was because it was so hard to keep this site up! But now we are sorry to inform you all, that SuprNova is closing down for good in the way that we all know it. We do not know if SuprNova is going to return, but it is certainly not going to be hosting any more torrent links. We are very sorry for this, but there was no other way, we have tried everything.
Thank you all that helped us, by donating mirrors or something else, by uploading and seeding files, by helping people out on IRC and on forum, by spreading the word about SuprNova.org.
It is a sad day for all of us!"
Looks like the end of an era as far as certain people will be concerned. No actual story as of yet as to what has really happened - if anyone is in trouble with the law in any way, or if some kind of a deal was struck.
