There might be one or two releases every 3 or 4 days, so on average there might be 10 new mixes each month. To make a torrent every month just to update 10 songs might be time better spent on other projects.


Yeah, I hear that, which is why I was posing it as "how feasible" because I really don't know how much work it takes to setup a torrent.

According to my RSS feed there were 20 releases in January... I'd rather only have to go to one place to download all 20 in one click than to have to open all 20 pages and go to the Download tab, right-click save-as, etc. It's kinda like wanting the option to download an entire album instead of just 1 track at a time, even if it's just 10 tracks. Most music sites let you do this, that's all I'm getting at. :smile:

Yeah, well they're working on updating the mass torrents right now anyways, so if this were to happen, you'd have to wait until the full torrents are up.

Nah, the point of torrents is to seed big groups of files in perpetuity; there's no practical reason to do small, monthly batches as torrents. We've held off on torrent updates because of my massive project, but when we're back in the swing of things, we'd be updating once per 100 mixes.

At some point, I may use RapidShare or some other Megaupload-ish service to do what you're asking, only with no torrent, just a direct, but straightforward batch download. Or someone else with more time can take up the cause! :-)

Hey, I was just wondering if there was a torrent available for the latest few hundred mixposts. Otherwise, do I gotta just go one by one and download them?

I'm pretty sure Larry's been working on updated torrents for some time now, so until he's done you'll have to get 'em one-by-one.

OK! That's no big deal, just thought I'd ask before I started.

I was wondering if there was an ETA, there's almost 500 new songs since the last updates the last I hears was "after the new year".

I don't like the idea of getting the ones missing via downloads, bandwidth and carpel tunnel both concerns.

Carpal tunnel I can understand, but you shouldn't have to worry about bandwidth.

I think Larry was yankin' our chains at this point, though. There won't be a new torrent EVER AGAIN.

There's a lot of changes going on on the backend of OCR right now. Lots of things changing simultaneously, so all parts need to be completed before moving forward. The new torrent is definitely one of those pieces, and I have not let staff forget that we need to work on it at every staff meeting (my job is to be the executive badgerer and nagger for getting things done).

So while no real ETA, it will be sometime this year, most likely sometime over the next 2-3 months. Don't quote me on that as its just an estimate, but its a nice ballpark.

We hate keeping people waiting, but this has been a huge overhaul for the next set of torrents, so it is worth the wait.

What about the new site design? When we saw it at MAGFurt it looked pretty solid, is it close?

Yes, it is. That is another component. Everyday a little more gets done on it.

So recent circumstances have dictated that I have to re-download everything that OCR has put out again, and I would really prefer to torrent everything. I looked at the torrent tracker and only saw that ocr1-1900 are available via torrent, does that mean I have to manually download the other 500+ tracks that are offered? This would slam the mirrors pretty hard, and be quite annoying.

Before I get flamed, I really did try to find some sort of update or note on this, but couldn't get any more info, so I appeal to the community. Please help me save OCR's bandwidth!
No, really. I'm a nice guy, I promise!

The download isnt starting at all. I get a "cant find url" error after about thirty seconds.
Ive tried googling for the torrents elsewhere but supposedly theyve been censored by the US supreme court.

well you can only get ocr torrents from ocr, so it's not the supreme court or anything (i hope)

i figured i'd attempt something, and i have come to the conclusion that that part of the site just happens to be down.

so i'll post this advice from the 404 page
