So J. Random Blogowner (that’d be me) posts a blogrant about Jamendo’s lack of OGG torrents and fires it into the void – and lo and behold, the first two of three comments I get on that post are both (both!) from people who work for Jamendo, who collectively say (allow me to paraphrase here):
- Yes, they know torrents are down; it’s not just OGG torrents but the MP3 ones too.
- Apparently their main hosting provider shut down the torrent traffic with little to no notice. WTF?
- A fix (moving the torrents to another server run by (hopefully) saner providers is in progress.
- I’m welcome to contact either of them anytime for an update on this.
All of this within eight or ten hours of my original post – not bad considering the time zone difference between here and Europe and the general obscurity of my little blog. As the third comment on my original post put it, “Yay Jamendo power response!”
So thank you and major kudos to the Jamendo people for running a project that’s both awesome and awesomely responsive!
