Torrent slow or stuck? Try this tracker list 2016

Do you know that trackers are fundamental to index torrent and, as a consquence, of its download speed? Thay also can be decisive if you have a stuck torrent because it had only a few peers or seeds. However if your torrent has been indexed with one or more tracker that I attached to this post it probably will start to download.

How to: add trackers

Trackers obviously work with every client (e.g. Bittorrent, uTorrent and so on) just because they are indispensable to download the files attached to torrents, however the process that allows you to add tracker is very simple because it is very similar for each software.

  1. First, we have to localize the screen that shows torrent’s tracker (usually on the bottom). As every torrent has already some tracker we will a populated list.
  2. Now right click on one of this link and select “Add Tracker

Redirect 301 to change domain name

When you’ve finished  the domain trasfer of out web site as explained in the previous guide , you have to inform all the search engines of the change you made, and to create an automatic redirect from the old site to the new one. The aim that you certainly have is not to lose the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) you had obtained with the previous domain. The way that leads you to success is very easy: you have to create a redirect 301, a permanently moved that redirect the visitors who click on old links, but at the same time it inform the visitor of our site permanent tranfer. Afterwards with Filezilla (that was a matter of the previous guide), you have to visit the old site , search in the site root the file .htaccess and modify it clicking on “View/ Modify“.
The notepad will be launched, now all you have to do is copy and paste the code I have written below, being careful while replacing  “iltuodominio.it”  with your own domain:

[code language=”text”]
Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.iltuodominio.it/$1 [R=301,L]
[/code]

Then you can close the notepad and save the changes. To check if your redirect works and gives back the code “301”, you can click here and write your old link. If you made no mistakes, this will be the result:

Note:
If in the new link you want to remove, for example, “/blog/” , to have a redirect from:

www.iltuodominio.it/blog/post342 –> www.ilnuovodominio.it/post342

so you have to write:

 

[code language=”text”]
Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^blog/(.*) http://www.iltuodominio.it/$1 [R=301,L]
[/code]

If, instead, you would like to add “/blog/” to the new domain, you have to write:

[code language=”text”]
Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.iltuodominio.it/blog/$1 [R=301,L]
[/code]

iTunes doesn’t recognise the Device (iPhone/iPad/iPod): how to solve the problem without restoring

It may happen that iTunes stops recognising our iDevice, so the program wants us to restore. However there’s a way to avoid the long process that lead us to download again the software, refresh the backup and finally sync all the apps and music files: hours and hours wasted just to sync our device, in hopes of a complete reset.

Those are likely examples of screens in this situation:

L'avviso di iTunes appena colleghiamo il dispositivo

The iTunes notice

L'unica possibilità che abbiamo è ripristinare

The only chance it’s to restore at this point

You should be aware that this kind of error is generated when the iTunes files that contain the device information are damaged (that’s why it’s written “zero KB” near the capacity) or when we disconnect our device while in synchronization. Now I’m going to show you a step-by-step guide in order to solve the problem without necessarily restore the device. You should mind, nevertheless, that we compulsorily need the access to inner files of the device. For this reason, if you don’t have access to them, I recommend you the jailbreak. However, before doing the jailbreak I suggest to follow the guide and try with the advised program (iFunBox).

 Preconditions

  • Any iDevice: iPhone, iPod, iPad
  • iOS5 – iOS8 (the remaining versions haven’t been tested but you can try anyway)
  • iFile o similar, for jailbroken users (available on Cydia) or iFunBox (the not- jailbroken users may try it)
  • Windows o Mac if you choose iFunBox

The Guide!

  1. Let’s download iFunBox (I recommend the Classic version for Windows) and launch it. Click on the left menu of the device where it’s written: System Raw File -> var/mobile/Media/ and let’s delete the file iTunes_Control:

    ifunbox-itunes.control

    In the picture it’s highlighted the dile you have to remove

  2. Otherwise in the jailbroken devices you can delete the file directly in iFile (without computer):

    Anche da iFile, su dispositivi jailbroken, possiamo eliminare definitivamente la cartella

    With jailbroken devices you can permanently delete the file

  3. The last thing to do is disconnect and connect again your device to iTunes. You’ ll see a Welcoming screen, like if you had just bought a new device… Don’t worry! Click on “Configurate it as new iPhone/iPod/iPad” (you won’t lose anything, nor SMS, neither telephone numbers) :

    La schermata di iTunes dopo aver eliminato la cartella "iTunes_Control"

    The screen when you delete the file “iTunes_Control”

  4. Select the music, the books and the videos like you did before and sync the device
  5. Finally I advise you to do a complete backup with iTunes and at the same time with iCloud as default backup (if you have a Wi-Fi connection at home)
    Effettuiamo un backup cliccando su "Esegui Backup", al termine clicchiamo su iCloud

    How to do the backup clicking on “Backup now”, and then on iCloud

    furthermore I advise  you to save the settings in iTunes as in the following picture:
