RAPIDSHARE SUCKS ASS (Another Maintenance Post)

(EDITOR'S NOTE: DUE TO A DMCA "TAKEDOWN NOTICE", ALL DIRECT DOWNLOAD LINKS HAVE BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS POST AND THE OTHER ONE LIKE IT.)


Has anyone else noticed how bad things have gotten on the Rapidshare filehosting service? Not only do I get the same "no room for you, too many PREMIUM members using RS right now" (fucking elitists!) message whenever I try to download from the site, but recent policy changes and dwindling concern for user friendliness have quickly moved the folks at Rapidshit to the top of my "People To Kill" list.
Allow me to elaborate: Maybe you guys remember the 'Yearly Maintenance' post I put up on Decemeber 3. Well, the "maintenance" was neccesary due to the fact that Rapidfuck has a 3-month "expiration date" of sorts, meaning that when a file doesn't get downloaded for 90 days it gets deleted. Fair enough. I understand that memory is money and Rapidcock can't afford to store endless amounts of information indefinitely. Hence about 60 albums (out of about 350) from the I.C. Archives were deleted from the Rapidballs server within the first year of this blog's existence. So I went through, found the missing files, and re-upped them on either MediaFire or Megaupload (who aren't without their issues either, but don't have the same "expiration date" policy and are generally far superior to Rapidsack). These 60 albums were the ones featured in the 'Yearly Maintenance' post. Feeling as though I had put my business straight and wouldn't have to worry about upload maintenance for another year or so, I (relatively) forgot about the whole thing and moved on, now using MediaFire as my main file-host.
Well, here's the bad news: Out of pure curiosity, I went back recently to check on the "health" of the old files still stored on Rapidsuck. Guess what? Someone must have changed their "expiration date" from 3 months to 3 days, because in the last two months, almost HALF of the stuff I had on there is now gone (this is over 120 albums - A LOT). So here we go again.

I'm not even sure what Rapidsphincter's policies actually are these days, but shit seems to be going downhill fast. I'm sure I'll eventually have to move everything left over there on to a different filehosting service, which I don't mind doing. But it takes A LOT of time to do it. Shit, a whole lot of music has probably been deleted since I started work on this round of maintenance. And I'll get around to restoring ALL of it eventually. But not now. I'm exhausted.

Enjoy.

That's right, somehow ALL of these files magically "expired" in the last two months. Thanks, Crapidshare!
If there are any more that I missed, now would be a good time to tell me.

Hopefully this will keep you fucking vultures busy for a little while.

Thanks for taking the time to re-upload. Sorry about the problems. I can'T believe you put up SON OF BAZERK. Rad! Dude doesn'T even rap - he just shouts random James Brown song titles until the song is over. I'm getting those Cynic demos, too. Thanks for that!

It's the first time I see over 10 different ways to curse the name of Rapidshare in just 1 post. Am still laughing on how clever most of them are.
