    Suprnova Adds Referer Check; Blocks RSS / Hotlinking

    INTERNET: Dan and I noticed last night that Suprnova has blocked "hotlinking" (linking directly to a torrent file on Suprnova's server). This is a bummer because I look for torrents using RSS and rarely go to their site. But it's unterstandable from Suprnova's POV, that kind of bandwidth doesn't come cheap, I'm sure.

    Read more about Suprnova's change in policy at Varchars and go here to find unofficial Suprnova RSS Feeds.
