communiqué #20: more server issues

what the f@ck...

Technical issues, it seems, continue to persist; a myriad plague of "invalid key" errors; incomplete (or non transferring) downloads; and sundry assorted glitches.

I am uncertain whether this is exclusively the fault of MediaFire, which appeared to have sustained a "temporary outage" yesterday. Allegedly, the official line is that those problems have since been resolved, but my own experiences today would seem to indicate otherwise. Apologies, brothers and sisters.

Oh. In addition to all this, you may notice an odd white keyline which has mysteriously appeared in the lower right corner of the pictorial banner above. Two horizontal lines between the 'O' and 'T' of SibLINGSHOT. This would seem to have something to do with "Signatunes"; if you hover a mouse over it you summon up an "Insert current track Signatune" message - something to do with FoxyTunes, I would hazard, but I'm at a loss as to how to toggle the keyline on or off - or even if that is possible. If anybody there has any ideas, I'd welcome your advice.

All very strange and vaguely conspirational. On the other hand, I'm an old fart and much more of a technophobe than you might imagine. I am easily rattled. Better make that "measly". Today I feel tempted to press the "delete blog" button and start over anew.

Fuck it. In the meantime, I've switched back to a previous file hosting service as a temporary measure. You have been warned, in a manner of speaking.

I am beginning to tire even myself with this incessant whingeing.

No, not the delete blog button. Just take a vacation. We'll be here when you get back.

A vacation is probably just what I need. That, or a crash course guide for living in the 21st Century...
