First of all, we've revamped the website with many more features and support for 57 languages so everyone can enjoy our content, and find what they're looking for quicker.

Then we improved are website's stability, and made some changes with the download manager to take this into account, so if we go into maintenance mode the download manager doesn't stop working.

And after the website was finished, I thought 'Why is my code so messy, can I make it faster? smoother? and smaller? yet keep the functionality?' and yes, I did exactly that and reduced the amount of code by around 100KB and it's only limitation is your computer, the code is as optimized as possible.

Here are the changes in 3.92:

1) URL Detection is now 200ms faster per file
2) New File-Type Menu for those with limited technical ability

6) Update Notification...

242w ago - Today Techeye.net (linked above) reports via [Register or Login to view links] that a 17-year-old SOCOM US Navy Seals cheater who got kicked off Sony's PlayStation site retaliated by hacking it, and as a result he was sentenced to a year's probation.

In addition, the Latrobe teen will also have to perform 250 hours of community service and pay Sony $5,000 in damages.

Apparently Sony asked for more than $33,200 in restitution, but the judge ruled that amount would be too excessive for the teen.

To quote: "Coppers claimed that the teen crippled Sony's online PlayStation site in retaliation for being kicked off the site for cheating while playing a war game called SOCOM US Navy Seals.

He used hacker tools to contact a botnet and these were directed clog three games on the PlayStation site, causing it to crash and go off-line.

Sony wanted $33,200 in restitution, but the judge ruled that amount would be too excessive for the teen."
