Don’t you just love those lists and long reviews of the year? Nope me neither. So give thanks to Andrew and his uploading trigger-finger. Ok so these recordings are from ‘yesteryear’ but if you’re going to start splitting hairs I’m not coming out to play anymore.

Hope you all have a very festive christmas

Thanks Andrew. I know I said they’d be no more posts over christmas but I had to pass these on. Let me add tapedeck.org to the mix while we’re on about cassettes.

    I love that people are sending these files but will people please not use rapidshare because I have an absolute bugger of a time trying to download these in Turkey.

    Adam, I don’t think there’s any one option that’ll suit everyone, other than hosting our own respective files. It can be annoying. I resisted getting an RS account for a long long time but in the end it made sense which is why anything I post goes via them but I have been trying to run torrents alongside too as another option. In the end I suppose ‘you get what you pay for’. RS & FlashGet is a winning combintion in my book.

    I was considering rounding up all these recent files and making a torrent but I really need to spring clean and backup this laptop right now rather than bringing stuff back in.

    Give me a list of which the free file sharers rate best and worst for you.

    If I can get enough good feedback from everyone I’ll work on coming up whith a more inclusive solution.

    Nobody should have to go without their Peel.

    p.s. Shhh….Just between you and me Adam. You can also email me a list of the ones your having problems with. I can create a private space for you on my server for, then you can go and mirror them on your site if you wish.

    Hmmm, odd. I’ll have to copy the files back over from another pc to re-up. This machine is old and slow so with usb 1.1 so bear with me…
