BitTorrent meets twelve years

BitTorrent meets twelve years

“My new app, BitTorrent, is now running, check it here,” wrote Bram Cohen – the creator of the in the Yahoo! message board on July 2, 2001, twelve years ago.

That date marked the public debut of the popular file transfer protocol BitTorrent, which today boasts an amazing health by becoming the favorite protocol for sharing large files via the Internet, whether legal or not.

If you want to celebrate twelve downloading a torrent, we could not recommend the latest package (bundle) which launched with historical alternative rock band Pixies , who decided to give to his fans through a torrent her latest single, “Bagboy” as the classic “Where is My Mind?” (the well-known song of the final scene of Fight Club ).
