Post subject:  FTP

I just wanted to do this once as a sticky, because I get asked about it a lot: is an anonymous FTP site featuring live/rare audio and video of various artists including Mr. Bungle, Fantomas, Secret Chiefs 3, John Zorn, Hella, Charming Hostess, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Tin Hat Trio, Dieselhed, Dengue Fever, and others.

YES, it really is anonymous. If you use Internet Explorer to connect, you may be asked for a login & password when the site is full (20 users). There is no login, and you should simply try again a few seconds later.

The best way to connect is to use an FTP client such as Smart FTP (Windows), BulletProof FTP (Windows), CuteFTP (Windows), Fetch (Mac), or Transmit (Mac). FTP clients work well because they can be set up to try to connect automatically every few seconds when the site is full, and because they allow you to queue multiple files for download so you don't need to click-and-save them one at a time. They also make uploading easier.

Once you connect to the site, you will find the available files in the /pub directory. Uploads can be made to /incoming. Files in /incoming are not downloadable until they have been approved and moved to /pub. This usually doesn't take long, and is necessary to prevent bandwidth problems.

I think that covers it. If anyone else wants to post about FTP sites here, feel free.

I could not disagree more! Sure you can flac a mp3 but why????

just download the plug-in to burn or get flac and decode to .wav
