Mp3s and .wavs are NOT downloading for me this morning. Not getting the complete file ... just little 221 byte representations that of course won't play. I managed to download one complete track out of like 10 tries. I tried two different browsers with the same results.

Sorry man - server provider reported a hardware crash this morning...some problems still present...not much we can do about it...Dick will fix whatever is software/tracks related as he has backups, but might not be all fixed until tonight... Cheers, TeeGee

Fail to prepare - prepare to fail! Well done Dick, I know it's a lot of hassle to backup all the time but it is well worth doing!

what saved our butts is that the files were already online on some other server, if I had to re-upload 13.000 tracks from a local backup, that would have taken weeks.
The database obviously survived as well, we would have lost roundabout two weeks of recent uploads if it hadn't. Like I said, we got lucky, and we are benefitting from the endless tiny improvements under the hood. Had this happened two years ago...that might have been it for the loops.
