With Success Comes A Price

I received my first notice from a copyright holder to remove a post. King Crimson to be exact. It has me a little scared. I had assumed I was safe posting bootlegs. Now, maybe not. I removed the post. What do I do now? Shut down the blog? Try to take it private again? I may have a way, but it may crap out like the last time. Your thoughts? Insights? Ideas? Send me an email at blind-pig@live.com or leave a comment under any post.

To Rapidshare Or Not To Rapidshare

I get people waying in on the pros and cons of rapidshare all the times. I like Rapidshare. For me it is fast and easy to use. I have never used it as a free service so I do not know anything about how slow it can be. I have tried Sharebee. I find it way to slow for uploading since I post a lot. If someone wants to donate a Megaupload account to me, I will post there. At least I will give it a try. I am spending way to much time as it is on this blogging thing. Hey, if you want to upload my shows to Sharebee or wherever on your own, I'll post the links under the appropriate show giving you loads of praise and love.

hi,

thanks again. your blog is wonderful!
about servers:

- rapidshare: it's ok, "free downloads" just need to wait kinda 2 hrs between downloads. that's why "leechers" are crying. but, when u know a little about internet, there's no server with "unlimited" bandwidth and they just can't realise there's someone else waiting to download too. bandwidth, as time, is money. free downloads used to be fast and ok.

- megaupload: is ok, fast, but they block access (free downloads) to the south america from 8 AM to 6 PM. i bet there's a lot of people visiting your blog from argentina, brazil, chile, uruguay etc. megaupload offers a toolbar (or sidebar?) to avoid this prob but there's a spyware in it.

- massmirror: please, take a look, if u don't know it yet. it's kinda sharebee, probably even better. IMHO it's the best choice actually.

anyway, thanks again, no matter what server you choose gonna stay grabbing your wonderful gigs! many thanks again!
(well, with the info about sdb, aud or fm would be perfect! lol)

thanks.

best wishes!

cheers!

Rapidshare works perfectly well, even in the free mode. My favorite one for sure.

Use rapidshare, it's the best and it's cheap....but don't use rapidshare.de, use .com

Every other site I've seen is full of ads and/or Flash rubbish and none of that is needed.

Also for us Linux users who have premium rapidshare accounts, we can wget the files.

Thank you again for sharing your posts. Nothing is "free." If it boils down to me getting a rapidshare account, fine. It's a small price to pay for these priceless shows. Do whatever works best for you, Tony. Peace and best wishes!

Put my vote in for Rapidshare. Some people want absolutely everything for absolutely nothing.

A fiver a month. Some people just don't know when they see a good bargain.

i like rapidshare. it's fast and easy. megaupload makes you wait about 6 hours before downloading another file unless you have a premium account (bad.

If you have some the time to spend for experiments, try fileberry 8http://fileberry.com). I use it for my blog and is the faster and easier at this time (kinda sharebee or massmirror but with no uploading errors and with one more download link). Maybe this will not last so fast forever (it's a new enough one) but at this moment works wery well (limit 100 MB).

Rapidshare.com is the fastest and most reliable of them all - by far.

Megaupload is also good but not as fast - don't know about blocking access cos I'm in UK.

Nargo - you've got a great site with great posts - keep it going pse.

Dear Mr Tiger,

Although Rapidshare can be a pain for non-paying users with the time limits, in the end all the downloader has to do is wait and they can download the next segment or another show.. so please know that we really appreciate all the time and effort that you put into sharing these kickass shows.. many, many thanks for all the shows posted, you rock :)

and please remember, we always are appreciating it, even if we forget our manners and forget to leave a comment to say "thank you".

I also gotta vote Rapidshare. A paid account is cheap, so no fair whining about how slow the free one is.

I vote for Rapidshare! I have paid accounts for both Rapidshare and Megaupload. Rapidshare is the most reliable and easiest to use. The fees to join are extremely resonable considering how much stuff there is posted. I did the free thing for a while, and then got frustrated with the waiting times. That's the price you pay for FREE!!!

Robert Ordway said...

Yup, RapidShare. Keep up the great work you do for all of us. One of my favorite sites!

Michael said...

rapidshare, please!

Sammy said...

To me this is simple. Rapidshare works! They are stable and easy to use. They offer a free service to those who want it for free, and they offer a premium service if You are a frequent user. Their premium service is also not highly priced. Bandwith and harddisc space do in fact cost money, even if someone think it's for free.

Another thing to consider is that most of the users ALREADY do have a Rapidshare membership.

It's got to be Rapidshare.com for me. Fast, reliable and cheap for a premium account. Keep up the good work!

Please keep it at Rapidshare - it is the best and most reliable service. I find it best to use it with a link-protector (as you do, too) and people who have complaints should just buy the premium account for a month and see how the difference is.

my 2 cents:

I feel like RapidShare has pretty much paid for itself.

skylark said...

Yeah,I used to bitch and moan about having to wait up to 2 hours between downloads on the free service. It was especially annoying for multi-part shows where one part could be deleted before you got to it. Anyway, I eventually relented and bought a 6 month account and have never looked back. It's fast, you can download more than one file at a time etc etc. A small price to pay for the best service.

Rapidshare.com - the bestest.
I've downloaded 20+ links at one go with them.
Pay their subs - its worth it cos you get well p...ed off waiting for free downloads.
No more whining pse - Rapidshare wins

Your files never get deleted, you can download more than 1 file at a time, you don't have to wait to download another file, by far my favorite file-sharing site.
