update : TTD is not shutting down after all : http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/showthread.php?t=183934

It has recently been announced that The Traders Den will shut down by the end of the month, unless somebody is willing to take over the site.

Original Announcement
Saving The Site

I remember new sources for Bowie shows occasionally appearing on TTD. Perhaps it's worthwhile to search that site for any unique recordings and upload them here so they can live on. I'll try doing that myself but somebody else to help would be nice in case I miss anything.

That is a shame I have donated over there on a few occasions.

There are about 180 Bowie titles on there, I'm on holiday from tomorrow so I can't check them.

I would suggest there are many if not all on this site anyway, but would be nice if someone could check

I get nothing but an error message when trying to get to their forum. Looks like they are gone already.

I am sad but far from surprised, as I know full well the trouble that these sites are having staying up - the fees keep rising, yet the donations are usually pitifully small and rare, with a very high percentage of site users who just take, take & take some more and never give anything back.

The announcement's similar to the message on Bootlegzone (which has been down since November 2020).  Standards for the software to host on the web, particularly if there's a database behind it, move on through time - but none of these sites have a team of web architects and coders behind them, just enthusiastic amateurs who do it all in their own time.  18 years is a good run - well done TTD just for surviving!

Looks like their tracker is already having a tough time. I'm not able to download anything, rtorrent just keeps saying this :

Quote:

Could not parse bencoded data: d8:intervali2500(5:peersld2:ip11:AA.BBB.CC.DD:peer id20:-UT355W-  B     X8z 4:porti58537((d2:ip15:1

Seems like some freaky corruption in the returned data, for example "2500(5:peers" should be "2500e5:peers". No wonder the clients can't parse that.

I also get errors but less descriptive error messages with uTorrent 1.6.1 and 3.5.5, as well as Transmission.

Will let these torrents run as long as the tracker responds but not getting my hopes up...
