        I Hate having to send these PM's but for last 3 months we've barely reached 50% and we're running out of cash fast.
        If you think you can help we would be very grateful, anything, no matter how low as it all adds up.

        Check out the donation page for details of what you get back for a donation.
        Remember to PM AcidKing with any transactions.

        Again sorry for this pm and we wouldn't be asking if we didn't really need to.

          As most of you know, we blacklisted uTorrent version 3.4.2, for security reasons, here on acid we try to keep it safe for everyone, so I'm posting this here cause we have a few members that are still trying to use that particular version of this client.


          We urge all members that are still not aware of this decision to either downgrade to a lesser more secure version, like 1.8.2, 2.2.1 etc which are very popular on here and many other sites, or upgrade to the 3.4.x ver, it's for your own safety and also for the security of this site.


          Thank you,


          Staff

              I would like on behalf of all the staff to wish you a very Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays, and a very Happy and Prosperous New Year, may your god be with you and your families.

              In January 2016 we celebrate 10 years as a torrent site, but those members that has been with us for years will tell you that it's not just been a torrent site, but a home for many, a place where we share our good and bad news, a place where we call each other family.

              We would like to say a BIG-Thank You to all, This site would not exist without the help of many, whether it be through donations, uploading and sharing files, the dedications of staff past and present, the coding teams working every spare minute they have in keeping all of us safe and site running.

                NEWS :


                This year for the Christmas Holidays why not change to the DarkSmooth theme.


                If you like this theme you can use it as your default for all time by going to Your Settings and choose DarkSmooth.


                This theme is now the default one for any new members or to the ones that has not chosen a theme.
                Hope this is not going to be an inconvenience to anyone, we just thought being Christmas that we all share the same theme for a couple of weeks.


                Have a nice Christmas and a prosperous new year.

                  We are in the process of upgrading our servers, the ones we are using at the moment has done the job BUT if we need to carry on competing with other sites for speed and quality we need to spend a bit more.

                  We'll also be upgrading the drives to newer ones, hopefully, less downtime in future.

                  There will most probably be a short downtime when we do start the change, but hopefully, if all goes well it wouldn't be for long.

                  As I mentioned the cost for our monthly bill will rise slightly from 420 to around 435 GBP, but I reckon the extra few quid will be well worth it in the long run.

                  Thanks for your understanding, news will be updated on the home page when the changeover is due to take place.

                      As you may have already read in a PM from ACIDKINGDonor, we will be moving the site to a new server as part of planned maintenance where we will be upgrading our hardware to hopefully prevent any future hardware failures and to upgrade the current SSD's to newer ones, This will be taking place on Friday 29th January, This current server will be switched off so we can make backups and transfer them while the DNS propagation is taking place (domains being moved), all going well your clients should should turn green and carry on as if nothing has happened 1-48 hours after the switch has been made , as soon as you see a login page appear it should be good to go, however it may take the full 48 hours for it to be fully sorted for some users. so unfortunately there will be downtime for some.


                      Any problems or you would like any info please feel free to join our irc and ask in there, so it might be a good idea just now to check that your email address is correct on your account and you know your password as you will be logged out. Note down the irc details just in case you experience any problems getting back in.


                      If you have a AciD-lounge e-mail address can you please login and save or forward any mail or contacts that you wish to keep as we will NOT be transferring them over, If you had an account before you will get another when we move so don't worry.


                      Regards
