    From Torrentbytes.net pm

    PM to ALL members of Torrentbytes.net

    Hopefully, you're all enjoying your Christmas Stockings,
    which our uploaders spend all night stitching together, especially for you.

    The good news, as many of you may have seen already,
    is that due to the goodness of the present owner of the torrenbytes.net domain,
    we get to keep the name torrentbytes.net, and no longer need to use the backup domain as was planned.

    The bad news is that while the DNS is updating, some of our members may be experiencing login problems.
    In theory, the whole DNS issue should be resolved by around 12:00pm GMT, however, it may take a little longer.
    During this time, you are still able to connect by editing your hosts file.

    FOR WINDOWS USERS:-
    Go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\ and open the file hosts with wordpad.
    Underneath the line:
    127.0.0.1 localhost
    add the lines:
    85.17.40.246 www.torrentbytes.net
    85.17.40.247 tracker.torrentbytes.net
    and save.

    FOR OSX USERS:-
    You will need a text editor installed, like Text Wrangler (available here: http://tinyurl.com/53ltf )
    1. In Finder, go to Go -> Go To Folder...
    2. Type "/private/etc" in that box, press enter
    3. Find the file "hosts" with no extension. You may also see "hosts.equiv" and "hosts.lpd". These are not what you need.
    4. Ctrl-click "hosts" and go to Open With...-> Textwrangler (or whatever text editor is your favorite)
    5. Underneath the line:
    127.0.0.1 localhost
    add the lines:
    85.17.40.246 www.torrentbytes.net
    85.17.40.247 tracker.torrentbytes.net
    6. Go to File-> Save, and it'll tell you that you have to edit as root. Thats cool, just authenticate it.
    Done! As a note, textedit won't work. It saves as a stupid format.

    FOR LINUX USERS:-
    1. Login as root (Google if you don't know how to do this)
    2. Navigate to /etc/
    3. Open "hosts" with your favorite text editor (nano, pico, gedit, whateveR)
    4. Underneath the line:
    127.0.0.1 localhost
    add the lines:
    85.17.40.246 www.torrentbytes.net
    85.17.40.247 tracker.torrentbytes.net
    5. Save

    Merry Christmas

    You need to be put on the irc "user" list meaning you need to contact staff first before tryin to enter the irc channel otherwise the bot will ban you, what is the problem are you a member at TB?

    not true. That's only for the main channel.

    Here's the irc url: irc://irc.p2p-irc.net/torrentbytes-support

    edit: if your ip range is .il you will not be able to get it unblocked. Sorry.
