EzArchive's Death Total rises as the sick experiment continues. More Video!!!


This is DAY TWO of EzArchive's butchering of blogger dreams.
For those of you unaware of what EzArchive is - this now makes me laugh - it's a service provider that hosts music. It's one of the company's that does this as a business, but not the only one. The premise is simple. I pay them. I host music files from their servers and you get to listen to them here. Being good friends with EzArchive is nearly impossible. They are not good to their customers. Why am I disgruntled?
Follow me through this little narrative:
Using EzArchive is a little like going to your favorite fast food establishment. You really don't want to - but you are in a pinch and really quite hungry. You choose to eat at this particular fast food chain despite the fact that it's not healthy and knowing that they have screwed you before by previously serving up incorrect items. But you convince yourself that it's generally ok when you use them - so you return for more. Yes, it's very much a disfunctional relationship working with EzArchive, but on a day-to-day basis, it works. That was until their "upgrade" which has locked us out. It's like ordering a burger at your fast food joint of choice. You pay and wait for the food, but no one will acknowledge you. Frustrated & hungry, you drive away.

At least there is VIDEO.
And I promise, soon there will be music again: With or Without EzArchvive.

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs at the Reading Festival
(Sept 30, 2006)

What a performance.
COLD WAR KIDS - live at Golden Gate Park
(An unintended live venue never sounded so good!)

Yet another reason why this Southern California band rocks so very hard.



Raconteurs at Austin City Limits 2006

This is "Bang Bang" - one of their best live songs. "Blue Veins" is another.
You will never hear either on pop radio, but they stand out in a live show!

The Deftones - "Say It Ain't So" (Weezer cover)
Now there is something unusual. Why does he say, "squeal like a pig?" Odd.

I just bailed on EZArchive myself. I'm giving MediaMax a try. They cost $5 / month opposed to whatever EZArchive was charging. I've put up one post with MediaMax. So far, so good.

I think I'm going to bail on ezarchive as well. Even when it was running I had problems. Do you guys know of any other hosting companies?

I am running a demo on mediamax - per two recommendations. I will let you
know by Monday what I think.


By the way.... I am making the assumption that EzArchive will not be up anytime soon. EVERYONE - please send me the stuff from the archives and old posts that you want restored. I will have to create new links for each.

Bother.

Two potential suitors right now:

Mediamax and Filexoom.

Both seem to be working, which is a hell of a lot better than the continued blackout from EzArchive.

You know it wouldn't be so bad if they just gave the indication that things would get better. But there is no sign of life...

Those who have switched are totally panning the new setup for its difficulty to use. Some are claiming the signal bandwidth is so small that files are being corrupted or shortened.

I will let you all know how these two services are working.

So far, so good! More files will be made available again tonight!
