Kickass Torrents is back Online

Have you heard the news ? KAT is back online.. 

A large group of original KickassTorrent staffers has launched a reincarnation of the infamous torrent site, hoping to restore it to its former glory. The new site uses a fresh and secure database, but the look and feel of the platform remains the same. – TorrentFreak

I am starting to think, Torrent websites are a ridiculous concept. KAT’s whole database must weigh a couple gigabytes – torrents and their descriptions fit ten to a megabyte. A mere hundred-megabyte archive of all the popular and active stuff could obviate 99% of web searches.

Bittorrent accounts for a massive chunk of all internet traffic. There’s terabytes of data sloshing around between peers. Why isn’t any of it dedicated to metadata? All a group like KAT should need is a Twitter account to announce daily/weekly digests by magnet URL.

Moreover considering I haven’t been able to get it to load at all today, I’m guessing they underestimated the bandwidth they would need with all us pirates.
