fetching music from various places.|
all mp3 sharing systems suck, really.
I think a bunch of us need to get together and start a network of underground mp3 fileservers running the coda filesystem... yeah.
I'm all for it...
Probably is I have no bandwidth...
Ill have to mirror it to my work machine weekly or something. That could work.
I've got about 2000 files, ready to contribute.

4800 (+-) Files here on a stand alone 30 gig HD
People were great to share with me and I would be happy to do the same back anytime anywhere.
Sign me up big guy.
You will have to make the set up easy for me as I am a point and click man so any of your wild techno talk flys right over my head.. Hell most stuff flys over my head.
Let me know if you wanna do it for real, we owe you big time for what you did for all of us here.

Re: 4800 (+-) Files here on a stand alone 30 gig HD
that is one of the best icons i have yet seen!
Sounds like a cool idea for the dozen or so people that have heard of Coda :)
The real problem as ever is just making a system that's scalable ...
If coda has advanced above "suck" in the last year and a half, then maybe :)

Add me to the growing list....
I have almost 40gb of files to add to the sum....Just need to know what to install and where to point it.
<question style="silly">What's the user icon? Looks like a monkey, but what's it doing?</>
omigod, you aren't talking about Space Ghost, are you?

Sounds good - count me in.
It'd be neat to share music videos (mpeg, avi) as well, for those of us who collect them rather extensively.
SPACE GHOST IS THE BOMB!
I miss not getting comedy central! Arg!

on top of it already
already working on a private collection of "favorites"... unfortunately my ripping software doesn't seem to want to play nice lately...http://me.17seconds.net/mp3s/
perhaps i should just subdomain mp3s.17seconds.net and let everyone have anonymous ftp access to it. afterall, i'm running the server out of my house, so bandwidth isn't an issue :)

Re: on top of it already
on top of it already
... it's not private.
... how can people add files?
so bandwidth isn't an issue
until you have none anymore. :)
So far BearShare
has been a pretty reliable source. I just got the new Weezer album off do it and Im pleased.

Wow! Thanks for that pointer.
BearShare has renewed my faith in Windows programmers.... lots of little details about it really impress me. Very clean program.
You know, actually...
Give rsync a small frontend and a text index generator on the backend, and you have a pretty neat "underground" network.
A central server syncs mp3 lists from node servers that contact it, and a frontend can be used as a search tool on this file, or clients sync up a big list from lots of rsync servers. Mirroring is cake, etc.
Or samba with some sort of a control list and central sync system. That lets them winders weenies in on the fun.
Distribute the index data across an IRC-style linked network, or flood-fill like news, and allow folks with spare capacity to mirro some of the data too.
Some way to remove corrupted files from the system would be good, too...
Oh yeah... Napigator
isn't too bad either. Each server carries a lot more content than Napster (plus unfiltered).
