mp3.com (03 Feb 2003 at 17:51)
mp3.com just changed their service again; it's no longer free to upload more than 3 songs. I hope they change their minds soon, but in any case I'll probably be moving all my stuff (hundreds of songs) to somewhere that I don't have to pay for. Any suggestions?

Why not host them on your own PC? Or secretly stash them on a CMU box?

I can always host my own stuff, yeah. It's nice to have them in a sort of community where people can go searching for music and randomly find you. Mainly, I want a place where people who do the Album-a-Day project can upload their songs for free, because most of them don't have office computers with fast permanent internet connections! Right now, iuma.com is lookin' pretty good...

Wow, they aren't even letting people download more than 50 mp3's for free. Pretty ridiculous, I think. If that iuma.com thing works out, post a little plug for it so I can move my stuff over...

I think downloads are still free. Are you looking at the emusic plug? (?) Vivendi will do anything to try to get people to pay for music again...

vitaminic.com looks promising, too. Very confusing web page, though!

Well, from what I can tell, they (mp3.com) are (is) trying to make it look like a cushy deal to get your first 50 downloads free if you become a (paying, presumably) member... Maybe you could pick one that would be best for the AAD community cause it would be cool to have most of them all in one place. At the moment I'm liking IUMA... Oh man it's gonna take me so long to move all these songs with a 56k modem...

Yeah, IUMA seems like what I'm going to go with, provided that they let me upload lots of songs. Downsides: You don't get to be as creative with your page (although I like the "pirate" theme a lot, heh), and the uploading is not compatible with anything but IE. But uploading is fast (1 step) and they have a "stream all songs" and even a way to separate song lists into albums.

OK, here's a snag: You can only have 10 songs per "album". I suggest making a "Side 1" and "Side 2" album if your AAD has more than 10.

So is that official? It'd be nice if we put all the albums in the same place. If so, I'll se you guys there soon.

Shucks. Well, I guess that's not so bad, as far as snags go...
