Is it only me or are other bloggers and downloaders encountering problems with Rapidshare recently ?
I am currently unable to upload new material on there, so am running very short of new material to post on this blog.
I am currently trying to upload a file - it appears to be working, though as this is not via my premium membership, this will only be available to the 1st ten visitors who attempt to download it...
I already have over 520 files with them and have paid my premium Account up for a while in advance, so am very reluctant to go to a new provider / file host.
I'd be glad to hear from others regarding this & maybe have some recommendations for a reliable & free / cheap filehost as an alternative. Thanks.
If I can't sort this out then i'll have to pack in the blog, though I'd be really sad to have to do resort to this step.
UPDATE (noon) : their Support page is still out of comission & I've not had a reply to my "help" e-mail. However, I have a link to Rapidshare on my desktop whcih still allows me to use the old upload link & this seems to be working. Fingers crossed as the last thing I want to do is to close the blog.
Update #2 (20.07) : Making some limited progress, ie I'm now able to upload (haphazardly) onto my Premium Account, so sharecodes will be permanent & limitless in terms of download numbers. This process is taking much longer than it should but....
Welcome To My Blog
Thanks for checking the blog out... Hope it offers something a bit different every now & again. Though I come from a pseudo - Mod background (Soul & Ska in particular), I have a diverse taste in music & hope my varied posts will reflect this.
Cheers Skamanc .... I'm not after your undying gratitude, but please leave your thoughts, comments & opinions on the posts & content. I regularly up- & download material, plus buy and trade items. As such, if I have inadvertently "trodden on anyone's toes" in posting anything then please let me know & accept my apologies. Also please support the artists involved & remember that the blog is merely a pointer toward these various downloads, which are stored elsewhere. Legally, any downloads should not be retained for more than a week. So now I've told you the legal bit !
