18 years of lurking and this brings you out Welcome, old timer!

If your question on status is are they here in the library, yes. 1/23-3/25 are well represented.

    Thanks so much for sharing, I remember needing to download every source. I eventually gave up when I ran out of space and decisions needed to be made. That said, I went through each show and you had some I was missing so I was able to download those, thanks for sharing.

    They allow us to do torrents because they are part of a forum. I think this is probably a bridge too far.
    I think the spirit of it still counts. We're all discussing it on a forum and enjoying it together. That's what DMB wanted to preserve, I think.

    Many props @Vacubsfan+! As a former archiver back in the stone ages of b&p’s and snail mail, I definitely commend you for this. Especially since torrents aren’t the most friendly or secure means to grab shows. I’ve definitely grabbed a couple sources that are new to me. And as others have mentioned, I hope the link still lives even if this thread has to go away.

    Re: Extensive Collection of DMB Fan Tapes and Broadcasts in the Cloud

    Outside of paying a subscription for MEGA, what's the best way to approach this? I would love to have all these shows stored in my own cloud. If I need the MEGA sub to do that fine, but am hoping for alternative methods.

    OR can I access these to listen with a sub, but not need to download them? I am clueless when it comes to MEGA outside of downloading files.

    You could pay to increase a Google Drive account and store them there. I think the total space for all these files is like 3 TB but you probably don't need every source. If you wanted to lower it even further convert to mp3 (I know!) and would be less than 1TB. I'm at 770 GB with ALL my mp3 music (I have mp3 and flac/shn files) which is way more than just DMB music.

    Total space is 5.2TB and growing as I add 2022 shows. Almost at 5.3 now.

    This is amazing! I have a Box Business account that has unlimited storage. How would I get it from Mega over to Box?

    Also, nice to see 2004-10-08 show on there. For those not around back then, that was one of the only shows that no recording existed of for quite a while. Then one day I discovered it on my roommate's computer.

    Outside of downloading the whole thing (will take a LONG time) and uploading into your cloud (also takes forever), there aren't likely many options to go between cloud providers.

    There are other options that would involve ordering a portable hard drive, sending to me and me sending back to you with files uploaded. I'm willing to do those sorts of things for the community but can't promise how quickly I can turn around. DM me if you want to talk more about stuff like that.

    Re: Extensive Collection of DMB Fan Tapes and Broadcasts in the Cloud

    Just wanted to let you know that two shows appear to be messed up. They are dm2004-02-08.tv and dm2009-01-09.tv. I have not encountered any others.

    What is the monthly bandwidth limit on this? I have been slowly pulling items so that others can get what they want.

    I too would be willing to do a b+p with a hdd but I also cannot comment on turn time.

    Thanks for the heads up on those...will check them out. Bandwidth is plenty fine at the moment. Users only used 5% of my limit in the last month (renews on 8/6).

    Good to know. I will up my speeds and finish the pull before that date. I had to add a new drive to my server for this. I really need a tape drive for something for archiving but the cost is just insane.

    If I paid for Mega, would I be able to access these all the time? Even if I don't pay for Mega, is it possible to have the free version app on my phone and just listen to these through your cloud source?

    If you have Mega membership, I know for a fact that you can transfer between cloud accounts (don't have to download and upload) and listen through the app. I am less sure about the free app options since it has been a long time since I had one of those and didn't test it. Probably worth a shot to see, unless anyone else here knows for sure?

    Wow, was that really meant for me? Or for the person who did this giant project? If it was for me, thanks, no idea what spurred that lovely comment but that is very very kind of you! If it was for Vancubsfan, no worries, they are astounding indeed!

Anyway the app will pull in the setlist, venue, date, etc for th/e show and apply them to the files. It currently supports flac and mp3 but I have intention of redoing the tags to support basically any format.

    If anyone is interested in trying it out, you can find it here. Feedback is always welcome. https://github.com/Syco54645/TagBot

    Just saw this. Yes and no. I actually got it working in wine recently so Linux and Mac should be able to run it just fine. If you need help getting wine going let me know.
