A rapidshare premium link mirror


Here's another site that lets you download from rapidshare using (other people's) premium accounts. Basically it operates via similar logic as other rapidshare premium link sites. The steps to download a file from rapidshare are as follows:

  1. Paste a link inside the rapidshare-link box and press enter or click the button beside the box.
  2. Next, if your file requires more votes then spread the rapidshit links to other people (see below for an explanation on this) and come back to download the file via the rapidshit link. Otherwise click on the download link that is hosted on another file host with no limits.
Woah? You mean it's not a direct download? Yup, this site is not like other premium link makers/generators. It is a rapidshare mirror. Files are hosted on another file host with no limits, instead of direct downloads. The upside of this is that other people can actually download the file from the other file host. The downside is that the other file host may not be too reliable or fast.

Speaking of differences, a big and welcome difference is that there are a lot of premium accounts available at this site. And by a lot of accounts, I really do mean plenty. The last time I checked, there were about 100+ premium accounts that were working according to the site! That means that a few hundred gigs of files can be served each day! I'm quite sure that beats any other (public) rapidshare premium link site hands down.

Before you get too excited at the prospect of leeching from the site, you should be aware that the site has certain protections against leechers. The most prominent of those is the file voting that is activated for all files. Currently 5 people must click on the same rapidshit link for it to be uploaded to the other file host. If you download regularly from rapidshare, they recommend getting your own premium account (as with other similar sites).

There are also some handy features available on this site. If you have several links you want to download you can copy and paste these links into the convertor to convert these links into rapidshit links. You can then spread these links in forums, etc. Another useful feature is the ability to keep track of files you have accessed in your current browser session. This allows you to quickly select a file for download after you have converted it into a rapidshit link. Additional help is available at the support link on the site.

As you can see, this service is very useful and handy for those without rapidshare premium accounts. If you intend to use this site (or any other rapidshare premium link sites), please do not abuse them in any way.

Some useful sites for rapidshare (proxy, premium links and more) *Updated*


The last rapidshare post was quite popular and got quite a bit of attention. Since I was away for a while, I shall return with another rapidshare post. Hope this one gets as popular or perhaps even more.

In general, if you're from one of the unlucky countries where your ip is shared and getting a (free) rapidshare download going is harder than striking the lottery, you have several options available (that I know of).

  1. You could get a premium rapidshare account.
  2. You could ask someone to download it for you.
  3. You could use a proxy to bypass the download restrictions.
  4. You could download it from a remote server.
Of course you could download the file you want from some other server, or not download it at all, but that is not the point. What if the file you need/want is only on rapidshare?

If you're reading this far, then the first and second options are probably out of the question. Heck, if you manage to get a (working) premium rapidshare account from the dozens of (fake) premium account logins, then I congratulate you. But then why would you be reading this paragraph? :)

So, on to the third point - downloading through a proxy. If you're fairly competent with google then guiding you through this would be a waste of time. So I'm going to assume you will need some help.
Those should get you enough proxies to last for a while. However, if you want something automated, check out Rapidkill without server. It supports more than just rapidshare as well. You could also use those proxies with it.

Lastly, downloading from a remote server. Here are some premium link generator servers that will generate free rapidshare premium links.
Other than premium rapidshare servers, there are some servers that allow you to download from rapidshare via php scripts. (Everyone seems to prefer the rapidshare premium link makers above, so I don't intend to update this section.)
If you know of other ways to download from rapidshare, feel free to share in the comments. :)

Introducing the multi-mini roundabout


Digger thommykno: That's incredible. How could that improve traffic flow?
Digger Blackmane: It doesn't, it annoys people so much that they take a different route and complete avoid the situation.

Lol, and I thought normal four lane roundabouts were bad.

Some fun with Who's Amung Us


If you are somewhat observant and have been reading this blog, you would have noticed that I've just added a widget from Who's Amung Us.

A slightly interesting quirk that I found was that the widget was not really dependent on anything other than http referrers. This actually makes it quite unreliable since referrers can

  1. be turned off easily esp. in Opera, F12 -> Enable referrer logging. This would reduce the number of visitors to your site, but who's counting? :)
  2. be modified/faked/manipulated with little effort. Essentially this would inflate your website stats, but who's checking? :)
Another point to note is that you do not have to use the widget link generated by Who's Amung Us website. In fact you can make up your own! And how is this useful? It has absolutely no use at all except to make your widget link easier to remember. Before you start, there are some important things you need to know:
  1. The part you can customise is where the x's are:
  2. Doing this may cause your widget to be shared by others, since fixing your widget link to something memorable increases the chances that it will match someone else's choice. This may not have a negative effect, since referrers are taken into account.
  3. The part which you can customise, i.e. the very last part of the url, has to be at least eight characters long. It can be longer than 8 characters but only the first 8 are taken into account. As far as I can tell, you can only insert alphanumeric characters into the url. For example, mine is However, this is equivalent to
  4. Remember to change the image url AND the anchor link for the image. Example: My image url is My anchor link for the image is
I think that's all you need to know about customizing the Who's Amung Us widget link. Have fun!

Microsoft boosts Hotmail space after Google and Yahoo


In my last post, Google introduced some new paid storage options for Gmail and Picasa. Now Microsoft has also followed suit in increasing storage space for email. In the blog entry, other than the increase in space for free users to 5GB, new features were also introduced mainly to fight spam as well as to improve user experience. And yet, Yahoo seems to have the edge over Microsoft and Google in email space even after these updates. Not that it really matters, as some have commented on Digg, "2.8GB ought to be enough for anybody" (I don't think any digger said that, but they've said similar stuff).
