I just finished installing some new GrabIt Search servers with more memory and more speed. The GrabIt Search retention is almost 2700 days now (yes, that is 7.5 years) and I need the extra hardware to keep the search fast. Everything seems to be working great on the new servers, but I will keep monitoring this weekend. If you see something that is not working, please drop me a line using the Support button on the left. Happy grabbing!

There is a problem with the pay by phone system. So for now the phone payments are not available. We are working on it.

2015 was a hectic year. I became father of twin baby girls and spent a lot of time being at home enjoying my family. But I started to work some more on this project every week since January. Next week I'll ramp up GrabIt 2.0 development again. So beta testers stay tuned!

In the mean time I did some upgrades to the GrabIt search and added a lot more groups to the index. They should become available within the next day or two. If you are missing a group that you would like added to the GrabIt Search, just let me know by using the support button on the left.

Happy grabbing!

I know GrabIt 2.0 is taking longer than expected and GrabIt 1.7.2 is showing its age. But GrabIt 2.0 (for Windows and Mac) is still a work in progress and not ready to be publicly tested yet.

I got some requests from fans to create a new release that has the latest UNRAR and PAR versions, so that is exactly what I did last week. No major updates in the code, just a newer UNRAR version a much faster PAR version. I also fixed the SSL connection problem. Feedback is welcome via the SUPPORT link on the left.
Download GrabIt 1.7.3 here

We moved the GrabIt Search to new servers last night. The GrabIt Search should be a lot more responsive now. We wil keep watching and tweaking the configuration in the next couple of days to make maximum use of the new hardware. So performance should be improving even more.

As always, if something is not working, just hit the support button on the left and let us know. Happy grabbing!
