For a while now, this site has been plagued by several music aggregation sites using my music content for downloads. Some of these sites have even been selling the music stored here on my site, using MY bandwidth and MY storage for THEIR complete profit.
Well, no more, ya friggin’ leeches! I’ve finally run your gravy wagon off the cliff.
Now my media files are no longer accessible. Hell, they aren’t even here any more. You can ram your head all the way up your ass and still not find them. But I will tell you one thing: my server isn’t running so hard now that I no longer have 3500 people an hour downloading music here.
So to all of you Leeches and Hotlinkers:
As far as setting other people up with instructions on how to prevent your website from being used for someone else’s storage and store, I will have a new WordPress Plugin finished in a couple of days.
I have been trying my hand at Flash. It is something I have never attempted before, and thought, “why not?” I mean, I mastered Photoshop way back in version 3, and have now kept up with the CSS5 version. Flash was something that I’ve been meaning to try but never got the time to play with it.
Hopefully, you can see my first attempt at a flash header at the top of the page. Whadda ya think? First of all, is it too big for my body?
I am looking for opinions here. Feel free to hurt my feelings if you want. (157)
I have been paring down the clutter in my life recently, friends, acquaintances, possessions, etc. I need to simplify by cutting out the bullshit and keeping only that which will serve me and my needs in my remaining time on this mortal coil.
(That could be a long time, or a short one, who knows? Who cares? The point is not my departure, it is getting the clutter out of my path)
So part of my paring down is to minimize the look and feel of this site as well. I originally worked on this look for another blog, but that one is being taken over by someone else who has a different opinion as to how that site should look. So instead of letting a fine theme to to waste, I will employ it here as a statement to my attempt to be a minimalist.
Some added features come with this new look. I got tired of having to delete a thousand comments a week that were imposed here in order to promote some questionable sites for page ranking in Eastern Europe. I am sure that in the process of blanket deleting, I probably threw away a few legitimate comments along the way.
I decided to go with using Facebook comments here. Good gravy, it is a good thing! If you have a Facebook account, then you can post a comment here. If not, then so sorry for you. For me, it is less that I have to do every week.
The jukebox has a minimalist look to it as well. I will be installing the pop-up version of it soon, and also plan on having an embed code for those who wish to put it on their site as well. Give me a couple of days on that — I need to enjoy my minimizing for this evening…
