BAD NEWS



My external drive and sound file processor workstation PC caught fire yesterday.
Some stuff was backed up, but more than 600 GB of rare and hard to find music are lost forever.
Please be patient with the site update...

So sorry to hear that. If you know what you're missing, perhaps you could post a list so that I (or others) who have those things can help you out? It's the least we can do to express our gratitude for the effort you put into your (absolutely first-rate) blog.

P.S. Your blog title made me think of two great songs of the same title - Jamie Kyle's and Orianthi's.

Happy to send one or both if you don't already have as theme music.

My sincere condolences my friend. We are right there with you, if you should need us.

Again, it will be a pity and curse if the loss is an irreparable one.

Pray and hope for the very best amigo!

hace un tiempo me pasó algo así, un rayo, y la solución pasó por reponerlo todo, ahora tengo mejor hardware que antes y el software se recuperó con el tiempo. No hay pc que cien años dure.

hola Koper como estas tanto tiempo? No hay enojo que dure 100 años tampoco no?

Tim Henderson said...

Hey man,

I can get you a lot of older rare stuff I think. I have around 60,000 songs so far on my drive. I can either upload them to ge.tt or mail some DVD's if it's a lot of stuff. Just let me know.

Sorry that all our worst nightmares actually happened to you!

get me at timxhenx@gmxail.cxom

but remove the x's for my real address

Actually, I just realized this would be much more helpful to you. I used dir2html to create a file showing all the music I have (in my Christian folder, anyway), so you can just see what you might want instead of having to think of everything one by one. I would recommend anyone else who wants to help to do this too.

My music directory - http://ge.tt/3gnMie8

Tim said...

Okay, now I feel like an idiot! I just emailed you a list of my Christan rock folder - I thought I was on a different blog! Dude - I am so sorry to confuse you! I have some good old AOR tunes too but now you probably don't want to have anything to do with me!

Ugh

i feel a bit sorry.. you had to share/upload that music to other people.. so you can easily restore your files in situation like this one.. torrents are the best way to do this..
anyway, talking about your hard drive - i can try to fix it for free, but it depends on the type of damage.. can you upload some photos of your dead hard drive?

Camelblue said...

@ supportguy :
Thanks for the offer!
I am a techie guy too (programmer) and managed to recover some stuff (40%) already. The rest is dead.
And the burned HD in the trash can haha.
Unfortunately the lost material isn't available on any torrent nor the web.

I really appreciate your help offer.
You guys rock!

supportguy said...

no problem.. it's good to hear that you have (partially) solved this problem! i was thinking about replacing pcb n stuff.. anyway, thank you too for uploading such great soundtrack packs!
