Just a month after Demonoid was shut down temporarily OiNK has suffered a similar fate.

"BRITISH and Dutch police say they have shut down the website OiNK, the world's biggest source of pirated pre-release chart albums."

EDIT: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/engl ... 057812.stm is probably the better link.

They'll be back....a torrent tracker that big and well-liked would never be down for good.

The place where the Police got the server in the UK isn't that far away from me.
