Updated label archives

Postby kirkm » Wed Jul 23, 2008 4:10 am

Over the next few days I'll be adding to the label archives at
http://kirk.orconhosting.net.nz/

The new ones have come from Lonnie and are fantastic photo
reproductions! Well worth getting :)

Some feedback indicates trouble downloading from
http://kirk.orconhosting.net.nz/. If you have experienced any problems
would you let me know? Maybe the ISP can inprove things. Also
if transfers have gone fine, that'd be nice to know, too!

The full 1960's have been reposted on alt.binaries.sounds.whitburn.pop
This is a repost, most likely without upgrades.

The 1960 A/Bs post is further delayed. Apologies all round... but the time is being spent aquiring Bs for 1961 and later so these years shouldnt suffer the same troubles.

Finally, (I feel like a newsreader!) Hugh Mendl of Decca sadly passed away on July 7th. He was 88.

Hi Kirk,

I have had problems downloading from your web site, mainly very slow speeds. It doesn't happen every time and I have not made a note of the time of day when downloading. I've just tried to download one of the new files and the smallest one for 1952 (7.77MB) would only download at a rate of 1.53KB/Sec and had a estimated download time of 2Hrs 15Min. This was at 15:00 hours UK time and I thought this would be a quiet time in NZ. I don't normally have any problems downloading from other sites and regularly download at rates of 600KB/Sec. I'll try again this evening to see if it's any better at that time of day. Looking forward to seeing the new images.

Cheers
Glinty

Hi Kirk,

Tried again at 20:30 and 23:30. Still the same problem, the downlod starts at about 150KB and quickly slows down to about 1KB with a download time of 10 Hours for just one of the files. I'd be interested to know if anyone else is having this same problem or is it something at this end.

Cheers
Glinty

Hi Glinty,

Doesn't look good... you're not the only one having this happen.
Trouble is, it's free so Orcon probably throttle international speeds on purpose.
There's also far more data there than they officially allow, which won't bother them knowing no-one will spend 10 hours getting 7 megs!

I won't upload anything else, and will look around for an alternative.

It does work at lightning speed within NZ, so if you're contemplating emigrating... :)

Cheers - Kirk
