Curious about the technical aspects... the site loads *very* fast for me. They are using a geo-DNS routed content delivery network, so ping times are excellent no matter where you're located. IP owner is the Internet Registry for Africa.

Nameservers appear to be located in New Zealand and Germany, judging from the labeling:

nsnz1.mega.co.nz
nsnz2.mega.co.nz
nsde1.mega.co.nz
nsde2.mega.co.nz

However, IPs for nsde1.mega.co.nz and nsde2.mega.co.nz resolve back to Africa Internet Registry.

Traceroute makes me think that they are using cogentco.
