The schedule for September…
And we’re back.
What happened during the past two -seemingly inactive– months was covered in the immediately previous post.
Moving on then.
1. (Even) More thorough details:
In addition to standard information [Record Label/Catalogue Number/Barcode], each CD/DVD rip will be accompanied by the corresponding “Matrix Numbers”
No more doubts as to where a Disc was manufactured.
The Mastering & Mould SID Codes can be used to determine the origin of a pressing/pinpoint the exact CD factory/press 😉
All that in conjunction with a constantly updated database provided by Musik-Sammler.de
It’s only available in German but it still comes very handy 🙂
2. Changes regarding File-Hosting Services:
I -reluctantly- stopped using Rapidshare.
It’s shame really, from a downloader’s point of view it remains one of the fastest -if not the fastest- service around.
But try to see things from my perspective too:
One of the primary criteria as an uploader is file expiration [due to inactivity], an area in which Rapidshare is at a disadvantage.
It used to be 90 days, then a year ago or so was reduced to 60 and after yet another policy change, is now limited to 1 month.
Not good enough.
Fileserve will be used instead, along with Filefactory, iFile, Megaupload and Mediafire.
3. Potential delays/postponements:
Switching to new OS => Trouble ahead!
It was going to happen sooner or later, I couldn’t spend another 10 years using XP now could I?
It’s more a need for a change than a necessity for me, but nevertheless, I decided to install Windows 7 [quite possibly creating a dual-booting PC: I’ve been hearing a lot of good things about Linux Mint, so I might give it a try]
All those combined with a certain SSD drive which comes highly recommended and I have yet to buy 😉
Oh, the technological advancements!
You know what that means, don’t you?
Set up programmes while maintaining their previous settings, familiarize with the new environment, ensuring everything is working properly etc.
It’s bound to take some time, I may have to *reschedule* one or two CDs…
