Troubles and possible solutions




Dear friends & followers,

As you know, Megauplod is gone (forever?).
So, all the links are dead.

Fileserve too (my previous fav file hosting) doesn't allow downloads if you're not the uploader.

Meanwhile Filesonic is kaputt, Rapidshare is changing again...

I don't know what will happen in the next period, so a definitive choice of another service (like mediafire, hotfile and so on) is - at the moment - unuseful.

I hope to find a solution very soon.

If you've any comment/suggestion, please let me know.

Keep in touch!

Guido



p.s.
Bad situation for my one hundred and fiftieth post   :-/

In this moment I want only to thank for good music (and not only to your person). All my posts of rock and some classic are gone too. Take a greeting from .cz

Thank you for this incredible source of rare recordings. I hope you keep us posted on what you choose to do. I lost all of my blog posts also.

Just don't give up. Other bloggers are currently using some hosters that are still online and seemingly not going to close soon, and try to shift their previously posted files to those hosters. Some others instead are giving up and quickly shutting down their blogs (why?? unless they are on American soil, what are they afraid of?) and that is a disaster!! Please don't give up, don't let this wave of corporate arrogance destroy all of your good work.

I think the best solution is to work with a mailing list + a service like wetransfer.

All the best,

This is really too bad! I'm having the same problem at "Odeon". Don't know any suggestion. But don't give up. It must be any way to go on with our blogs!

Guido, scrivo per ringaziare per tutta la musica meravigliosa che tu hai ci dato. La mia speranza è che tutto sia risolto presto. Saluti cordiali del Brasile. C.

Hi Guido. I deeply regret that you lost that valuable work. I know from my own experience what this means and how much disappointment causes. I wish, that you wouldn't be discouraged from the loss and you will continue this wonderful effort. With the help of friends and admins of "classics" we are trying these hosts..

I totally agree that at this moment no one knows what will happen, new posts can be a loss of work. I'm so sad about your 1500 posts, what a loss!!! But at the same time I'm happy because you will not disappear, I hope to meet you soon here or somewhere, as you prefer. Thanks for all good posts, I used to visit you everyday and I'll miss you a lot!!! Greetings from Brazil.

Hey Guido,

Yes, this whole episode stinks. Guys like you and me make no money from our work, we just want to share our small efforts with other like mided people. But, its the bad folks who abuse file hosting services that spoil it for all of us.

Hopefully, this will be all worked out soon. Your great blog needs to continue on!

Thanks,

Fred

narod.yandex.ru - Russian file sharing! Do nothing and there you will not be removed.

davidps said...

Well, there is Mediafire. In any case, I want to join the many who are thanking you for your posts. I only wish I had grabbed Franck I while I still could. All the best!

Historic Opera said...

I too urge you to continue your work. What about using Google docs? 20 GB of storage there costs $5 - Google are so big and powerful even the US government might shy away from them!
I am still using rapidshare, which is still working.

ipromesisposi said...

I'm so sorry...
So far, I'm back to (fuc*)Rapi*share...

Valor y al toro.

Xeniteprince said...

Hi, the use of sites such as http://www.mirrorcreator.com
which allow you to upload simultaneously to a number of file servers seems a very good idea for now. Have you tried this?
Anyway thanks for all the music you share here!!!

we shall overcome some day - and let they perish!

Emilio said...

The problem with mirrorcreator is, that you only become preferred customer, when you get 50 downloads for each of your files. And that the most hosters are only charge-free up to 500 MB. And when you have to pay, you better only have ONE to pay than 15...

gogolino said...

Let's see how things evolve! To shut down immediately everything would just fulfill the "endgame-vision" of the governmental censors. Don't be discouraged too much that hundreds of hours are gone. It's bitter but you will be rewarded when you keep your highly interesting and valuable blog going. Like the others before me, I want to thank you for the rare recordings, with which you gave us so much joy in the past. Keep it up!

troods said...

May I express gratitude to you for all the generosity you have displayed. I just found your site and am amazed by the wonderful selection. Stand strong, my friend. This too will pass. And one blogger sent me a link to google docs which he's trying out. The download was so fast, it was incredible. And google does represent some power and support for internet freedom.

mauro said...

certo che dispiace non poter più riempirci di gioia scaricando i vostri post....
ma avete preso in considerazione la possibilità di distribuirli attraverso la rete torrent... sarebbe anche molto più veloce... e meno controllabile

Ciao Guido,
per i file di qualità che tu generosamente hai condiviso con noi si potrebbe usare media fire al momento. o, come dice, l'anonimo qui sopra narod...
un saluto cmq, non demordere, abbi pazienza,
Un abbraccio

David said...

Guido - so sad that you, the innocent, are hurt by the actions of the guilty (whether that's the naughty uploaders or the nasty corporates). But the dust will settle & other options will become clear. Meantime a huge thank you for some fantastic recordings; and don't lose heart!

Guido,
pensa a ziddu
http://www.ziddu.com

non ha attività commerciale sullo sharing...

karnak said...

tutto considerato sarebe preferibile ai siti russi(molto lenti) mediafire che consente anche files paralleli a una velocita' accettabile anche con account free. Oppure tornare a Rapid che tra l'altro ha sede in...Svizzerae non negli usa.

Mediafire is still out there!
Narod or any other Russian servers are fine, too.
Or you can even use Dropbox - safe & sound.

Best wishes,

Thank you so much for your passion and hard work --- I have discovered so much through the otherwise-unavailable recordings you have posted. In fact, Laureate Conductors is my 'first stop' in my daily web-browsing. I have had two blogs in the past, and my feeling is that Mediafire or Rapidshare is the way to go. They were here long before the others that recently have disappeared and I don't think they are going anywhere. Mediafire is wonderful from the downloader's point of view, but it takes patience as an uploader: it often takes several tries to get something up without any corrupt files. I definitely recommend testing everything you upload before sharing a link. This may be a hindrance to the sort of blog that exists to share massive box sets, but should not be such a problem for your more modest and focused offerings. Rapidshare is also dependable, as long as you are a 'Rapid Pro' member. Neither of these services engage in the kind of practices that brought problems to the other services and the news commentaries seem to think that they will be sticking around.

Whatever you do, take your time and don't worry too much --- we'll still be here, waiting for another previously unheard Victor de Sabata recording!

Someone above mentioned Google Docs, but how does one share links? I tried it, and sent the links to a friend (set to "view" rather than edit) and it just came up as a 404 error page. Obviously one doesn't want to give editing access or have to hand over one's google login, PW, etc....

I hope you can find a solution (me too, over at Neal's Historical)...good luck, and thanks for all of the goodies!

Dear Classical Music Lover,
A month ago I resumed posting to my classical music blog Kammermusikkammer (which is dedicated to classical and modern western music: mainly chamber, piano, and songs). The recent post is about Clara Schumann (and Hans Holbeins ambassadors).
Please: May you add the Kammermusikkammer to your list (blogroll) of lossless classical music blogs? I already list your blog on mine.
Yours sincerely, WMS.Nemo

Ciao Guido

Ho visto il macello che è successo e non so proprio quali possano essere le mosse migliori. Qualcuno ha parlato di Rapidshare (non male, l'ho usato) e Mediafire che dal punto di vista dell'utente free è il migliore: accettabilmente veloce e supporta i download paralleli.

Uff, speravo di trovare il tempo per iniziare un blog anche io ma questo fatto del non trovare sito di hosting è un intoppo notevole.

fimian said...

Caro Guido, visto che stai di nuovo ripubblicando De Sabata, perchè non riposti il TESTAMENT con il Debussy/La Mer inedito? Non ho fatto in tempo....
Come piccola contropartita offro a te e ai frequentatori del blog un riversamento del preludio dell'Aida a 78 giri (polydor originale in eccellenti condizioni)da poco effettuato che permette di ascoltare con eccezionale fedeltà il suono di De Sabata di quella sessione di registrazione con la Filarmonica di Berlino

(De Sabata 68395A Verdi Aida prelude 1939.wav)
