Wired Blogs has an interesting article out about how usenet users are sharing a spreadsheet file called “The Whitburn Spreadsheets“. These spreadsheets contain historical data about songs all the way back to 1890. It’s worth a read to see how the structures and lengths of individual songs have changed over the decades.
We’ve just posted the latest version of Newsrover in My Account. We recommend everyone login now to download and upgrade.
In our mission to offer our users the best service possible, we are pleased to announce the addition of block download accounts to our list of available account types. A block account is different in that you are not paying a monthly (or quarterly, yearly, etc) subscription. A block account is a one-time purchase of bandwidth from us. You will have 1 year to use the bandwidth you purchase. Once the bandwidth is gone, or the year is up, your account will go away. At that point you can signup again for another block purchase if you choose.
In addition to our snazzy new support system, we’d like to announce that we now have live chat available. You can now use live chat for any support questions that you have. Live chat will ensure quicker response to your issues.
We are proud to announce the launch of our new and improved support system. We now have an extensive knowledgebase for our users. Now, you will be able to look through our KB to find information about any problems you may be having without having to submit a support ticket. The answers to the most common support questions can all be found in the knowledgebase.
Our improved support ticket system will also lead to improved response times and even better overall customer satisfaction. So, from now on, please submit any support tickets by clicking on Support, not Contact Us.
Take a look at the new support system and let us know what you think! You can click on Contact Us to send us any comments.
We’ve upgraded our bandwidth usage reporting area. Now we’ve provided you with detailed charts so that you can easily track your bandwidth usage.
