So, what are all these old 78s? I think that I missed the original post discussing them. What is the story behind them?

I searched the forum under "mikebw records". But no hits.
What exactly (or vaguely) are these??

I clicked on the links but they went to the Filedropper home page. .
Do i need to sign up to DL?

Some of the Filedropper links aren't working.

More info (and downloads) from the source: [78records.cdbpdx.com]

Thanks Mike. We all appreciate your hard work.

Right now only the last two links, U V Y & Z, and W are working for me.

Alright, well I guess the older links (A-S) may be expired or something. FileDropper doesn't say how long the links are good for, or if there are any kinds of limitations to how many people can download them. I just don't know.

Perhaps if someone were to actually pay for an account we might have a better success ratio ;)

Not really excited about re-uploading 10GB of files, even with FiOS it takes a while... and if I did bother with that it would only make sense to apply the naming fix that JoeyCupcakes came up with.

I guess if there are enough of you who show interest I could find a better solution. Let me know.

EDIT: It looks like you can get the files from the original website once again: [78records.cdbpdx.com] You have to use the login and password provided on that page to gain access, and it looks like there is a NEW STUFF and an older stuff page that are separate. I used a utility called "DownloadThemAll!" to automate the download process.

When I try the link, all I get is the FileDropper home page, saying "Sign up."

How does one get to the actual downloadable files?

If the links worked a page would load specific to the file I uploaded, and there would be a link to download. What is happening is that only the last 3 links are working, I think all the others have expired. If you want to get the originals go to [78records.cdbpdx.com]

The files for I thru S are gone. I have all the rest but once you go to
filedropper there's no download button for those.

Edit: How did I miss your last response? old fogey smiley

Thanks for all the work.

I will be glad to contribute some $ if that will help the cause.

There is a lot on the original site but it only looks like about 25% of the total. There is also ongoing new stuff.

Are you sure you went to the right page? [cdbpdx.com]

There seems to be quite a ton of links on that page.

The Taoist Zhuangzi said, "Good order results spontaneously when things are let alone".
The sociologist, and historian, Adam Ferguson described the phenomenon of spontaneous order in society as the "result of human action, but not the execution of any human design".
