A couple of things have prompted me to re-evaluate how I distribute
recorded mixes on this website.
First, I stopped broadcasting on aNONradio a few weeks ago.
Since I'm no longer a contributing member there, I believe it's unfair
for me to link to files in aNONradio's archives. (And those
files could disappear at any time - whenever the admins decide they
need the disk space, basically). I'm going to have to host my own
files from now on.
Second, 189 mixes (200 soon) is too many to keep available
all at once, in my opinion. Right now it's 15 gigs of mp3 data.
That's not an amount of data I can afford to serve, given my current
hosting and money situation.
So here's my plan:
each new episode of Movement Through Thought will be available as
a downloadable file hosted on this website for one year.
I'll remove old files as I add new ones. The tracklist blog posts will
remain up. Old mixes that I think are significant I'll keep available
as downloads indefinitely, no more than a couple for each broadcast year.
I'll tag posts with audio download to hopefully make them
easier to find. Recordings uploaded to mixcloud will remain there
for as long as mixcloud keeps them.
I do still have all these files, so if there's a specific mix you want
that isn't available on this website send me an e-mail and
I'll try to get it to you.
That's where I'm at. This seems like a reasonable system to me, a good
middle ground. I hope it works out.
