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 !

Rapidshite is doing me feckin' head in !!

Can anyone recommend a decent, reliable & FREE(!) alternative to Rapidshare ?

I have around 1000 files on there though think it's time for a proper alternative. Some recent uploads have disappeared from there & its a pain in the arse tohave to  re-do them.

I also know that a lot of blog visitors have had problems accessing files via rapidshare on occasion.

As such, I need to find a new provider that I can completely rely on. I've tried several in the past, though files seem to be taken off very quickly.

Any thoughts and recommendations would be very welcome... Thanks.


  1. I've always liked mediafire

  2. I never had any problem with Rapidshare but if you like a new one,i agree for Mediafire mate.
    Thanks for the great blog.

  3. If I have the time (& keep Virgin broadband on for more than a few weeks at a time, lol !!) I reckon I'll try to post stuff with two links - Rapidshare & Mediafire & see how that goes. Thanks for the help lads...

  4. Mediafire is the least problematical in my experience.


  5. I've been experimenting with Mediafire over the weekend, based on the above advice & my previous (ableit limited) experience on that site...

    Not been able to upload a single file in its entirety - either on Virgin B/Band or even Tmobile as a last resort (paid for the wireless then learned Mrs SMH had finally paid up her share of the Virgin Bill lol).

    Anyway - currently reuploading some stuff to Rapidshare - allows me to load multiple files simultaneously & it ain't a problem if I click over to another tab. Mediafire doesn't seem to like that & "stalls" uploading if this occurs...

    In my earlier blogging days I was advised to use Sharebee, as they offer several providers for each file uploaded, though they don't all seem to work... May try them again ???

    Still none the wiser & have debated paying for a provider until I saw the prices being listed...

  6. Mediafire seems best to me, been using it for a fair few months and not had any problems yet

  7. Try Megaupload. I used them to post boots on other sites and has worked a treat for me.


  8. Hi mate :-)

    First, many, many thanks for your great stuff !

    Mediafire doesn't work with JDownloader :-(
    Anyway, it's a good host (no waiting time, parallel downloads).

    I use rapidshare, megaupload, filesonic and fileserve without any problem.

    Keep out the great job ;-)
