^yep plenty of time still..to zip files or compress them without any special program is easy...just put all the songs into one folder then right click on that folder and go to the 'send to' option which should display a menu of choices with one being 'compressed (zipped) folder'...use that one and it should create a zipped folder which you can upload via ysi or send space etc

I'm currently favouring one idea for sharing the tunes.

I think it would be good if we made a .com account specifically for this competition. You can upload files up to 60MB in size to , and the link remains active for up to 30 days after the last download. I don't know any other site with such a generous time limit. The only problem is that 60MB limit - I'm pretty sure our discs would be bigger than that, even if zipped. So that may mean using three zipped files.

For those who don't know how to do it, it's dead easy and we'll make a step-by-step guide. And if you're limited by technical constraints or slow Internet, surely someone here can help.

An upload is NOT required, by the way. Just thought I'd make that clear. Only do it if you want to. It will likely improve your chances of getting votes, especially if you are using a lot of obscure material.

You have until the 9th of May to send me (or Liam) your tracklisting, and you are not required to make a ZIP file. Having one will likely help your chances of getting votes, though.

If a lot of submissions are received early, I think we'll move forward the 9 May deadline so we can kick things off.

Okay... I'm working on my mix and reading over the posts...

Originally this was set up as two separate cds, right? Now that were posting the mixes, should we consider this as a complete 160 minute playlist instead?

This will make a difference in how I plan these discs

I made 2 playlists as if they were for 2 80 minute cds.

one big clusterfuck of a playlist would be too much IMO.

Cool. I was thinking the same thing




Side note: "clusterfuck" is a great word

Maybe I’m missing something but if you have 2 CD's per person per day then the 'judges' really don’t have much time to download and listen to the selections. I barely have time to listen to one full CD during the time it takes me to get to and from work let alone 4 to judge a contest. Maybe it should be just one CD or have a different round each week.

It's still meant to be 2CDs. That won't change. The desert island has a CD player but no computer.

That's why I proposed a "save file .com" account in an earlier post (I just realised the censor blanked that URL out from the earlier post).

If we all upload our compilations to that account before the competition's begun, then we can listen to them comfortably in advance.

Of course, if you know all of the material on someone's album, you wouldn't need to download it in the first place.
