Music Downloads…

All the music downloads on the site have been deleted by persons unknown from the server.

They CAN be uploaded again, but firstly Tony Puppy will have to get to the bottom of why this has happened.

It could be that the host site have done something incredibly unethical and pulled the plug for some reason. The hosting site has not sent any emails to Tony concerning any problems or maintenace with the KYPP site over this weekend.

If the hosting company deny any knowledge then it could be a disgruntled hacker deliberately wiping of all the downloads.

Either way all my personal mp3 files ARE SAFE, just need to be reloaded, which would take some time but is do-able at least.

I am not going to reload until I know that the hosting site will not take them down, if they were responsible for the deletions in the first place.

Tony and Gerard will keep me updated with news on this matter, and I will proceed with reinserting all the mp3 files when I get told to do so.

This could take several days to get to the bottom of, so keep checking back.

Bunch of arse…

    Personally chaps I’d go for Mediafire, although I don’t know any costs involved for uploading, they are very quick to download from (allegedly!), plus you can view folders and their contents then download from those folders, if the preferences allow. Can password protect too.

    Mind you they way things are going, downloading from such sites looks to be under ever-increasing scrutiny… Virgin having already sent out warning/threatening letters to so called ‘customers’ regarding such downloads. Good job Mr Pengers is careful what he uploads eh what ;-D

    The music business/government will have fun trying to sort it out, the whole biz seems to be in tatters in some respects and so far behind the times, it’s untrue. Technology can be wonderful at times eh!

    £50 for 30 minutes!!!! :O That’s daylight robbery! :O But those come-to-bed-eyes ARE rather irresistible… and that fur looks VERY strokeable… and I do come very quickly… OK! Done deal! I’m assuming for that price it’s without a condom?

    PS Just looking at some pix, re Hagar the Womb – never heard them, don’t know them – but I do have an album by the Anti-Social Workers (bloody good it was too – with the Mad Professor!). Were any of them former members??? Just as a matter of interest?

    No they were not Stewey, although Tim ‘Bilko’ the stout left wing skinhead vocalist and Leyton Orient fan did join The Blaggers briefly at the beginning of that bands career after ASW split up. Bilko does poetry readings nowadays I think. Was a top bloke but have not seen him for about 6 years now. He used to live with Buster Bloodvessal in Clapton, and had an enormous………………………………..reggae collection that he would spin at George Robey Ska nights in the late 1980’s.

    Being a cheapskate I aint got an account with no-one, so for my blog I mainly use 4 shared, Media fie or divshare, each allows up to 5GB free, max file size is 100MB, but if ya pay this all changes. Divshares my favourite, but you’re only allowed a certain amount of downloads per month, can’t remember how many GB’s, but after a month it all starts again, so if someone wants to download something and you’ve exceeded download limit, they’ll have to come back in a months time to access it. The thing I like about those 3 is that you can set up folders on them and keep track of yer files, and they don’t delete files that haven’t been accessed for a while, that isn’t the case with mega upload, Sendspace, but that might be different if I was paying. I’ve steered clear of rapidshare, as it doesn’t like some browsers. I suppose as with everything If you pay, in theory you would expect a better service. Pop ups are sometimes a problem for people, when you haven’t got a dedicated server, I dunno, it’s pretty much all of the same really. Anyway that’s my thoughts on it all. An alternative, but possibly costly one, would be to set up yer own server, cost could be shared amongst like minded bloggers etc. I did look into possibilities, all very technical….woosh! Straight over my head, and the guy I was speaking to about it was a bit of a techy and blinded me with science, so I thought no more about it. Right, gotta go now, things to do

    Sorry for being a complete “luddite fuckwit” but will all the options being considered allow me to play the stuff through Windows media player or am I going to have to attempt to do something clever ?

    I’m not certain, but I remember Mitch being in the Anti Social Workers live band as well as playing with the 3 Johns though I’m not sure he was ever actually a band member of either band.

    I saw Anti Social Workers perform as a white boy three piece, Mitch was on the cover due to him being a mate of the band (as were other Hagars) and he also did some backing vocals on that 1983 Ariwa released LP with a host of other people like Ranking Ann and Mandy (ex Conflict). Horsemouth Wallace (Star of the JA film `Rockers’) also helps out on some drumming duties for the LP.
    John you may be getting Leeds based Three Johns confused with Leeds based Mekons, a band which Mitch did in fact join up with in the late 1980’s early 1990’s (I think).

    yeah, there was a stint with the mekons in between doing playwork in islington and then more playwork in hackney at shakespears walk adventure playground, which is still there, just. i really enjoyed the asw’s, i still insert “i was born on a small island, i said bollox!” into conversation when i can! fine man and fine playworker. community play provision is one of the few areas that still manages to get ordinary people off their arses to act collectively… we’re doing a “powis square” (see tom vague’s notting hill articles or dave wise’ revolt against plenty site) on a bit of land in hackney at the moment.

    OK a decision has been made for the mp3 hosting. Media Fire is what the site will be using. In the next few weeks I will be re-uploading most of the material on this site. Only when I have finished with the old uploads will I start loading up other material on this links / downloads and post 86 pages.
