Dime a Dozen's "Ben Folds Flood"
« on: December 22, 2009, 10:01:46 AM »
How's it going! In case you didn't read my random ramblings post from earlier, members of the website www.dimeadozen.org are doing this thing called the "Ben Folds Flood", where they upload any lossless Ben Folds (Five) show they have. I'll be posting the shows here, so keep your eyes on this thread and your ears ready for a tasty pile o' Ben Folds!

Finished uploading the first show: 1996-03-21 Theater of Living Arts in Philidelphia, PA
HOLY CRAP!!!!

I don't understand how to download the torrents on the site. I've signed up and confirmed my account and whatnot, but everytime I click on what I think is the download link, it's only a small file. What do I do?

You have to download a torrent client like µTorrent . Once you have it installed, you add the .torrent file to the client. It should start downloading then. It's a bit confusing. :P

Are there any seeds? Usually lack of seeds would be the main reason for it not downloading.

Have you tried stopping the torrent and then restarting it? Whenever I have that problem, that usually works.

Sure! I'll get on it. Each show would have to be 2-3 files because Mediafire has it's limits. :P

This is OT, but every time I see this topic title, I think of the bootleg "Ben Flods" shirts I saw once.

Hey Zinefiend, congrats on becoming the board's next YaBB God!! :)

Ok, I'm almost finished. I have two shows uploading and one downloading at the moment.

Here's what I've uploaded so far in .rar files. Most of these are the same folders with the .rar files added to them:
1996-03-21 Theater of Living Arts in Philidelphia, PA
1996-03-24 "Sunday Night" New York City Radio
1997-04-27 "Idiot's Delight" New York City Radio
1999-09-11 Kokusai Forum in Tokyo, Japan (Day after the Freaking Out DVD was filmed. Kinda cool.)
HOLY CRAP!!!!
