Volunteer needed

by

A number of Apple and Linux users have contacted me recently to say that they are unable to download the recordings that are hosted on the eSnips site, as apparently eSnips now require that you install their software first, which is only compatible with Windows. Unfortunately I don’t have the time to look for another file hosting service and upload all these files once more. However, if a kind volunteer could be found who wouldn’t mind downloading and then re-posting these files on another service, I would be very grateful and would be very happy to link to that  site. Thanks.

    It would be much better to host them on the Internet Archive as it is committed to open data/open source and much more stable.

    You can collect them together by using a google site like the one I used for a recent conference called The Computational Turn. Here I used the Internet Archive for the ‘archive’ versions and Blip.tv for the playable embedded versions.

    So long as your bandwidth volume isn’t too huge, you could try hosting them in the “Public” folder of a dropbox.com account. Dropbox is a file-syncing/hosting service that gives you up to 2GB free.

    Every individual file in the public folder of a dropbox account has an individual URL. People downloading the .mp3s won’t have to install any file. For the end-user, it’s as easy as “save as”.

    Dropbox is not suitable for this as it is a subscription service. Internet Archive is free and will be around long after dropbox fades away (or is bought out by a competitor/etc).

    Thank you for your suggestions. I’m still waiting to see if a volunteer magically materialises and downloads and uploads all these files…

    I hope you find it useful.

    […] Readers in the past have requested an alternative way to download recordings from this site, as there were apparently some problems with downloading them from eSnips. I’m happy to report that Modestos Stavrakis has now very kindly rehosted the recordings on his blog, alongside a variety of recordings from other sources as well. See his Speculative Realism Recordings. Thank you, Modestos.
