Pirate Bay To Be Stored On A USB Drive
By Shaylin Clark
Last month we brought you news that controversial torrent hosting site The Pirate Bay was beginning a transition away from .torrent files in order to host Magnet links, which are both harder to block and require less bandwidth and server space than .torrent files.

In that story it was reported that the switch to Magnet links would allow the entirety of The Pirate Bay to be stored on a USB drive. That has apparently been confirmed.

"Our users have been telling us that while they love the concept of on-demand indexing, manually entering URLs or keeping a Sitemap up to date is too cumbersome," says Google software engineer Liqian Luo. If the site is verified with Webmaster Tools, you can provide Google with a URL for your page that links to your site's latest content, and Google will "periodically" visit it to discover the new content.
