Kim Dotcom’s Mega Is Now Open To the Public


Mega, Kim Dotcom‘s big, flashy new copyright-dismantling file-sharing/storage site with encryption up the wazoo has finally launched. You can head on over and sign up right now. That is, so long as the site can hold under the crazy traffic. So far, it looks like it’s getting crushed. But different people are experiencing different things.

Gizmodo gave you an inside look at the service yesterday, but now you can get in there and start poking around yourself. Is this the new future of cloud storage? Or maybe the new future of private, encrypted piracy clubs? We’re now officially on our way to finding out. What’s your money on?

And it looks like it’s only the beginning..

Later, Dotcom reported that sign-ups were coming at a rate of thousands per minute.

The site opened up for early access yesterday, and now everyone can go to Mega to sign up and use the service, with a basic, free offering of 50GB of storage, plus three pricing tiers with additional storage and bandwidth capacity. This is being resold by partners of Mega, which include Instra, as well as EuroDNS and Digiweb.

Update 19/01/13 @ 7:41 GMT: Within eight minutes it’s gone from 100,000 user registrations to 250,000 user registrations, Kim Tweeted

“250,000 user registrations. Server capacity on maximum load. Should get better when initial frenzy is over. Wow!!!”

Who won Dancing On Ice 2012? Results!

Dancing On Ice drew to a close this weekend, which is just as well or our eyes would literally turn square with all the TV shows we have to watch each weekend.

Just one night after the launch of this year’s series of Britain’s Got Talent and the first ever run of BBC’s The Voice, ITV’s Dancing On Ice drew to a close in a dramatic finale which saw Chico Slimani, Jorgie Porter and Matthew Wolfenden all fighting it out for the crown.

Former X Factor star Chico was the first to be eliminated by public vote, most likely because of his wobble and near catastrophe as he almost dropped his partner Jodeyne on her head earlier in the evening.

After that was revealed, Matthew and Jorgie returned to the rink to perform their version of the iconic Bolero routine.

Only one of the stars could win and after the final performances, Phillip Schofield revealed that the person taking the crown this evening – who had won the highest number of public votes – was Matthew and his partner Nina.

I’m A Celebrity 2011: McFly bassist Dougie Poynter crowned King Of The Jungle after beating Mark Wright

All hail King Dougie: McFly bassist Dougie Poynter has been crowned King Of The Jungle.

Dougie Poynter has been crowned King Of The Jungle after winning this year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

McFly bassist, 24, was stunned after beating former bookies favourite Mark Wright: ‘I’m lost for words. My mouth is so dry. It’s been the best couple of week in my life.’

The Essex-native was presented with his crown by hosts of the ITV2 spin-off show, Laura Whitmore and Joe Swash.

After strutting down the walkway, he was greeted by his jubilant McFly bandmate Tom Fletcher.

Despite being runner-up, The Only Way Is Essex star and club promoter Mark, 24, was a gracious loser.

He said: There couldn’t be a bit winner. He’s the nicest, kindest person in the whole wide world. He serverss every minute of it.’

During their joint interview before finding out the winner, Dougie admitted he was surprised to have ended up in the final.

Bromance: The pair spoke about their surprisingly close friendship on the show.

He said: ‘I didn’t do anything, I felt like I just chilled in my hammock the whole time.’

Mark enthused: ‘It’s the most amazing experience of my whole life.’

Dougie admitted they had been sick repeated times following their Bushtucker Trial the previous night.

Before finding out he hadn’t won, Mark insisted ‘I’ve won being here… I can’t be a loser today. It’s not a competition. It’s an experience of a lifetime and I’ve loved every minute.’

Another one bites the dust! Sinitta becomes second casualty of I’m A Celebrity as she takes the walk of shame

Sinitta has become the second victim of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

Fortunately she avoided the embarrassment of being eliminated first; with that blow dealt to Stefanie Powers last night, despite her melodramatic squealing during three trials and the cockroach filled cave, viewers opted to send her home.

As Ant and Dec went into the camp, Pat Sharp was the first to be saved before Jessica-Jane Clement’s name was called second.

Sinitta was then told it might be her, before Dougie Poynter, Lorraine Chase, Willie Carson, Emily Scott, Mark Wright, Fatima Whitbread and Antony Cotton were all told they’d be staying.

As Crissy Rock was the final name left, she battled the former popstar in the bottom two – but the 43-year-old was sent home as the Benidorm actress, 53, was saved.

Talking to the Geordie presenters, Sinitta said: “Amazing, I sort of knew. To leave when I actually started to love it is a great feeling. I wanted to face my fears and not be afraid of everything.

Speaking of her now infamous night in the cockroach filled cave, in which she stood vertical for three hours to avoid the creepy crawlies, she said: “It did feel like a long time.

She even praised Pat, who had to sleep next to her, saying: “He was so sweet, whenever I screamed, he’d say,It’s nothing“. It was the longest night of his life.

He wants to win, he’s not afraid of anything. He doesn’t really understand people’s deep-rooted fears.

When she was quizzed about faking her hysterics, especially during The Department Store task, she denied she was faking.

Simon Cowell’s former flame said: “I’d be a brilliant actress (if I was faking). It’s real, they (my family) find it irritating at home too.

Sinitta added that she would like to see Mark or Crissy go on to be crowned king or queen of the jungle.

Meanwhile, love is still blossoming between Mark and Emily.

The Australian model successfully completed the latest Bushtucker Trial, Coral Grief, in which she scored a maximum of 11 meals for her campmates after retrieving stars buried in a giant tank.

When she returned to the camp, the former TOWIE star offered her a congratulatory back rub.
