Mah Smaplers are teh broked
I went on a "duh iTunes" binge and helped it find all of the music that it couldn't find recently.  (today).  It was a tedious process, and I can't help but but wonder iTunes isn't smart enough to check in Led Zeppelin/Houses of the Holy/ for Dancing Days.  But iTunes sucks (it is known) and I digress.

I discovered that my Smapler collection is lacking!

Smapler I: I have but three tracks.  WTF?  That was a great smapler, and I'm missing most of it.
Smapler II: I have four tracks.  Again, Wednesday The Finest.
Smapler III:   Cry2
Smapler IV: I seem to have the full compliment of 25 songs.
Smapler V:  Whaa
Smapler VI: I've got 28 songs.  Seems right.
Smapler VII: I have two of these.  One is "Curtains Drawn" with 12 tunes.  The other is "Songs to Drive Fast To" and contains 22 delicious tracks.
Smapler VIII: Aptly themed after the decade that tried to ruin everything, the 80s, I've but 2 tracks.

I also have a "Drinking Songs" edition that might fill a gap.  It contains one song in my Compilations directory, where all the other Smaplers are, and it has a separate Smapler 2007-08 directory with nine more tracks.  Making that one ten in total.

What happened? Where did the music go?  Did it get reclassified?  What am I missing?  What recourse do I have, as a consumer?  Which member of the treefort does ukimalefu hate the most?

No problem. I wish I had smapler 3, though.

RE: Mah Smaplers are teh broked
Are the discussion threads accompanying the compilation of each smapler lost forever to the ravages of time? It would be interesting to read the threads as I listen to each respective smapler.

Nothing from the old forum is lost. But it's not currently accessible.

Something like that... more like I put a veil in front of it so folks can't see it.  I should pack it into a box.

I went ahead and pulled them back down. Hope everyone got what they wanted.

RE: Mah Smaplers are teh broked
Thanks for putting them up, I pulled the first two, and figured I'd use a script to pull down the rest. I never wrote the script (or installed wget). Another time... it isn't critical. And I get the sense that my files are around here somewhere. I'll ping you if you get desperate again. Thank you very much!

I got a takedown notice from comcast.

If you could write me up a .htaccess file that'd add a username/password, I'd put 'em back up.

Heh.

Code:
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Get out, bitch!"
AuthUserFile /path/to/.htpasswd
Require valid-user

Then for a user/pass of "ch54/smaplers"

Code:
echo 'ch54:$apr1$NLA8TQ1F$XcssHNG4Rj/Q6dcaGOVwv/' > .htpasswd

I gotta see too if I still have these lying around somewhere. I haven't had anything like a home server running for years.

RE: Mah Smaplers are teh broked
It looks like iTunes on my end moved some of the songs to artist folders, so they show up in searches, but it's weird. Thanks again, I think I'm good, it's not worth legal troubles on your part by any measure.

I found my sampler archive while browsing HDs that should have been trashed long ago.

My logic is infallible. Resistance is futile.
