Coming back home and find discs in the mail was great

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

...to have just one thing, just one thing in your whole life that you do that makes you proud of yourself, I don't think that's too much for anybody to ask...

Maybe we could do some still?
Wy not! What do ya reckon?
And just make sure they're the great high quality ones.
All we need to get started is a kind and generous SPL'er to seed one...

Cheers,

Hazy

She said last night she read those letters...
And they made her feel one hundred years old...


Just read Skipjack's update on the state of things re uploading downloading etc. perhaps going back to these vines may not be such a bad idea afterall!

Cheers,

If you don't know what a vine is....How do you know we're old?
Stands to reason that it could be s very new idea and you just never heard of it.Right???

On second thought.
Yea we are old. wink



But also wise.

Incase you were being serious.A vine was a way to get shows out to a bunch of people instead of just a one to one person trade.

Snail mail pyramid type scheme.It was pretty cool.If...IF the people actually resent the original back out.
And if the snail mail man even delivered the discs in the first place.
but it would take a while to complete.usually you would put a 3 day exchange of hands on it.meaning.you would have three days after you got the show to rip it and resend it to the next person.

you could set it up for just your country or for the world.

vines were all the rage yeah, I got a load of Bruce from vines (thanks everyone) in the days before I had broadband etc and couldn't download from JL dime etc

It may be seen as sonewhat old fashioned nowadays but it did and still does work. getting the disks through the door, copyin and posting on. Some weeks I was almost copying everynight and off tot he Po the next day.

So no wining (sorry about the pun and spelling) about vines

  Dream baby dream

It never ceased to amaze me how long it could take for a disc to travel from one place to another nearby place. Not that people sat on them for some time, heaven no not splers !!!!!!!

ah, vines - those were the days. I really want to know how much money I spent on postage then. It was fun! Some months there was not a day were no envelope with discs would arrive. 

 

Yep, I am old!
