isoHunt Dead?

It seems that isoHunt has been fucked by their ISP. From their website:

Update, Jan. 16, 2007
Lawyers from our primary ISP decided to pull our plug without any advance notice, as of 14:45 PST. No doubt related to our lawsuit brought by the MPAA, but we don’t have more information at this time until people responsible comes to work tomorrow. We will be back in operation once we sort out this mess with our ISP, or we get new hardware ready from our new ISP.

Sit back and enjoy the rest of the internet in the mean time, while it last. For your torrent searching needs, try Google for now by searching for “SEARCH TERMS ext:torrent”.

You can also come hang around our IRC channel (SSL on port +7000). We’ll update on this page and on IRC when we have more information.

– The isoHunt crew

I wonder if this is for good or if they can actually regroup and get the site back up with another ISP.

    This is when you need to consider old technology. Go into the “computer closet” and dust-off your favorite usenet news client.

    Take that MPAA!

    Shhh! First rule of usenet – you do not talk about usenet where MPAA might be listening. ;)
