Big Vacation

Today, I'll be heading off for a big vacation that'll last just over a month. Since it's so long, I'm bringing a tablet-styled computer with me for the first time. I should have continued access to my music collection and be able to post and comment here, knock on wood. But I'll be pretty busy doing touristy stuff. I'm going to see if I can still post some new albums from time to time, but if I do, it'll be a lot less than what I usually do. We'll see how it goes.

On a different note, I've been working with someone to make some big changes to this blog. For one thing, I'd like to change the location to someplace more secure, given that a very similar blog (Albums I Wish Existed) was taken down one day with no warning due to copyright issues. But as part of that process I'm also hoping to change from using Zippyshare to something better that won't have Zippyshare's many problem. So look forward to that in the next few months, knock on wood.

One thing about being on vacation is that I won't be able to use SoulseekQT until I get back. So the sharing of files through that program will be suspended until the end of my vacation.

Anyway, I hope you all stay safe and well. I've been fully vaccinated (making this vacation possible). I hope you have been too, and you're moving back towards more of a non-pandemic normal life. :)

  1. Paul. Have fun. You deserve a break and thanks for all you have done. One question, are you thinking of making this a private blog? and if so may I be one of the first to request an invite

    1. Thanks. I'm not planning on making this a private blog. But I want different support than this one owned by Google, with different policies. I think I've found something better.

  2. Have fun on your vacation. If I may, I do like Zippyshare. I've never had a problem with it, so I hope if you change it, the new server will still be user-friendly. Have a great trip.

  5. Have a good (and well-earned) vacation. Unlike some others who have commented here, I have had nothing but trouble with Zippyshare (as I mentioned in an earlier comment). For what it's worth to those who have not had problems, Norton has found malware in every Zippyshare download I have made, and now it won't let me download from Zippyshare at all. You may want to check your anti-virus software to see if there have been any attempted intrusions. Looking forward to your ch-ch-ch-changes and have fun while you're away.

  9. Have a great--and safe!--vacation.

    I add my vote to liking Zippyshare. I never have a problem but I go to it through an aggregate downloader called JDownloader 2 which skips all the adds and pop ups and just downloads the file. I use it for 90% of my downloading.

  12. Hope you have a great break. Thanks for all your posts - some really interesting stuff. Zippyshare is a no-go here in the UK though I manage to work around that with a VPN. Perhaps an alternative as well as Zippy could be a way forward?

    1. Me too. But android with Opera and Adblocking works really well, if it's a platform you can jump on?

  17. Massive vote in favour of staying with Zippy from me - it's so far and away better than any alternative
