Earlier this year, the site that hosts all of the music and zip files of Burning Wood changed hands. With that change came a change in policies and cost. One of the new policies was to report me for a violation of abuse, stating that I was "storing" music for my own personal use, a violation, and that I was taking up precious space that others had the right to use. I tried to explain my way out of it, claiming all files had active links to posts on the blog and that the links only became deactivated when the host changed servers and left me no choice. It didn't fly and I was forced to delete all files from 2008-2019.
This means, every post from 2008-2018 that had a link, is now not only dead, but gone.
So there's that.
I've gotten three emails in the last three days, reminding me that my renewal is coming up and that I need a vaild credit card on file. I've yet to update because I just don't want to shell out the money. After all this time, the new changes have soured the whole thing. I realize you can't avoid change, but I can change, too.
So there's this.
Come October 9th, I believe, though I might be off a day or three, all links will be dead...and gone. If there's anything you want, start grabbing it now. Going forward, I will try to find a comparable place to upload and share with minimal discomfort. Many use Zippyshare, but that proves to be problematic time and again, which is why I have always chosen to pay for my service, allowing you to download without the fear of popups, ads, or worse. WeTransfer seems to be an excellent place, but links have a time limit.
I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.
Anyway, that's all I got for today.
