Hosting Upgraded! (again!)

Ok, for the last week or so, I’ve been on Verio – starting with their BSD plans… which have a process limit of about 30 (meaning: you may need to wait a long time for your downloads to start).
So, a few days ago – I upgraded to the Linux plans, which limit processes to about 70, and it did ‘ok’ over the holidays. Now I’m bumping the process limit – but more importantly, the TCP Send Buffer limit. (meaning: your download will start – BUT it may take a bit to start getting your mp3)
Today, I upgraded to a higher plan that will let more people download music at the same time – and hopefully all will be well for a time.
To those of you out there who are using robots to download everything on my site, I would like to say that I hate you, and I hate your poorly behaved robots. You do not need 26 copies of every mp3 you can find.
To everyone else: Download as you like! :-)

Kick Shock

Kick Shock
Here is a driving dance piece with a distorted synth lead, synth bass and drums. There is heavy phasing throughout. The energy and drive is constant until the last seven seconds which feature an exposed drum part. It could be used for a club scene, action sequence, or altered-reality sequence.

New Host Issues

I got a new host for my traffic – which in theory provides enough bandwidth. However, the number of processes is limited, so I’m attempting to get an upgraded plan.
The traffic is being serviced right now, just at a reduced rate.
If you know of a good hosting service that can provide good bandwidth at a reasonable price, please let me know. Hint: 1and1, BlueHost, GoDaddy, and Verio are insufficient.

Blue Feather

Blue Feather
Here is a somber solo piano piece that features a repetitive descending arpeggio motive. This piece is sparse, mysterious, and at times unnerving. It contains a few uplifting moments (a shorter one begins at 1:40, and longer one at 2:14) but each generally gives way to the more unnerving descending motive and ominous bass notes. The last minute contains slightly more motion than the rest of the piece and fuller chords. It could be used for underscoring contemplation, rain or secretive behavior.


Okay, long story short – BlueHost does not have unlimited bandwidth, they merely will not tell you what the upper limit is, because the number is squishy.
I can tell you that 60Gb per day is above the limit, but that’s all I know.
So, now I’m over at Verio! They have a 12Tb/month plan – so they can probably handle my files. Being quite the optimist, I am optimistic. :-)
Cheers everyone, and thanks for riding out the December Incompetech Crisis.
