Thank You For Responding To My Question About The Files!
This picture of Jacqueline Bisset really doesn't have anything to do with this post (other than the fact that I really like it and we can all dream, can't we?), but I thought it was a nice incentive to get people to read this post since it's verbose and it doesn't have any music.
I want to thank everybody for responding to my question about having problems with the files. It seems that the problem is mainly with Stuffit (and possibly with Mac) and the underscores in the password. I'm glad somebody let me know; I should've realized they would cause problems, but it never occured to me, so I'm sorry to all those who've had problems opening files because of it.
If I had known, I never would have made the password such a headache for people. When I first saw blogs with passwords, I never understood why people used them. Then eventually I realized it was because people were stealing their links (though I still don't know if this is the only reason). When I started this blog, I thought it would be better to add passwords just in case though I knew my files weren't the type that were likely to have their links stolen, but I figured if there was some other reason to do it that I didn't know about, it was better to be safe.
And I didn't want the password to be so long and hard-to-type, but I couldn't figure out a way to shorten it and still make sense......'you_dont', 'dont_have_to', and 'visit_this_blog' didn't really work. And 'dont_visit' seemed especially bad! I was originally thinking of 'youdonthavetovisit', but that seemed worse, so that's why I put in the underscores. Now I wish I could go back and change them all. I did actually consider that for half a second, but the prospect of reuploading all the files so that I could make one minor change made me want to hit myself in the forehead with a ballpeen hammer, so I decided against it.
So, again, I'm very sorry to anyone who has had problems opening the files. Anyone who was using Stuffit, if they could use some other software, I would appreciate it. If you can't and would still like the files, please let me know which ones you'd like and I'll upload them with a new password and add a new link.
I changed the password on the next post to the simpler (but more bleary-eyed), 'youdonthavetovisit'. I hope this works. I liked Ill Folks' suggestions about putting in a text file or putting 'youdon'thavetovisit.blogspot' into the upload file name. I do already try and put in a text file with the track list with the blog address in it, but sometimes I forget to do it. And I would add the blog address in the filename, but a lot of times I forget to shorten the filename, so I would either forget to add the address name too or I might make it abnormally long. I may try those in the future though and just get rid of the passwords. I hardly think anybody's going to steal my links (I'm lucky if anybody even downloads the files). If anybody knows any other reason why people use passwords, please let me know. I guess I'll just try 'youdonthavetovisit' for a while and see how that goes.
Again, I really appreciate the help on this. Thanks to mickey, gypsum gypsy, crazed, the 'anonymii', Fatty Jubbo, misterlesterkeen, & Ill Folks for leaving helpful comments. I was happily surprised to see Fatty Jubbo drop by since I've been a fan of his Cake & Polka Parade for a long time, and I didn't realize he was visiting the blog.
And I didn't know misterlesterkeen was stopping by either (which is really kind of stupid on my part since he linked to me on his blog, but I suppose I was thinking he just put in the link without actually looking at my blog). He just put in some new Man from UNCLE albums and The Odd Couple Sings album, so head on over there and get those goodies at MisterLesterKeen. And as always, you can't go wrong if you go to Ill Folks. There are so many goodies there, it's hard to describe them all, but he just put in a torch song compilation that looks fantastic.
I tried looking up gypsum gypsy's blog, 'Piddle Ditties', but blogger said it wasn't found, so if you stop by again gypsum, and you're up and running anywhere, please let me know. With a name like 'Piddle Ditties', I'd love to visit!
If you want to get some feedback on posting and blog tips, chat with fellow music fans and bloggers, and maybe find a rarity or two you might want to join a forum. This one is very friendly and not a "kid" forum with warez and hacker code postings:
You have some great posts. (I just got stuck on the first one about passwords and all that, which led me to offer the invite). Good luck
