I'm trying to download the coverdiscs from older issues of LXF, but can't get older discs. The torrent tracer from LinuxFormat is not online, especially for discs from issue 155 and earlier. There also are no seeds for these older disks.

Can anyone help get these archives back online?

Thanks

Sorry, a very delayed replay for anyone on the mag.

We're aware of the problem and we're considering what might be the best approach: whether to fix it or do something else for disc downloads.

Unfortunately, I can't give you timeframe for when things will get sorted - basically when we can.

There's presently an issue with the latest DVD's as well. All the torrents have an error message "Could not connect to tracker" at http://static.linuxformat.com:6969.

This is leading to missing or incomplete torrents:

170.iso: Myself and 4 peers are stuck at 97%
172.iso: The only available peer is at 53%
176.iso: Myself and 2 peers are stuck at 0%
177.iso: Torrent not available (but cataloged at archive.org library)
178.iso: Myself and 3 peers stuck at 0%

We've restarted the torrent server, hopefully seeding should be off the mark again. But we believe there's a file system issue on the torrent server, we're looking at an upgrade at the moment.
