Newbie anxious to hear others' work.... But can't
« on: November 06, 2014, 07:42:09 PM »
Hi folks,
Brand new here and intend to read and listen more than anything.
However, In trying to listen to other members' works in the Junior forum, I am only able to get one or two of the mp3's to play. I get 404'd on all the other links.
Do the mp3's expire after a short time?

OK, after further searching I stumbled onto the answer further down this category.
They go away after a year (or possibly sooner).

Because of the (understandable) time restriction on large attached files, more and more of us are moving towards hosting our sound files elsewhere. We all love having others listen to our music so I'm sure forum members would make their work available if you were to PM them or post a request to the appropriate thread...

The perceived object...is not a sum of elements to be distinguished from each other and analyzed discretely, but a pattern, that is to say a form, a structure: the element's existence does not precede the existence of the whole, it comes neither before nor after it, for the parts do not determine the pattern, but the pattern determines the parts: knowledge of the pattern and of its laws, of the set and its structure, could not possibly be derived from discrete knowledge of the elements that compose it.

That means that you can look at a piece of a puzzle for three whole days, you can believe that you know all there is to know about its colouring and its shape, and be no further ahead than when you started. The only thing that counts is the ability to link this piece to other pieces...

as Jamie says, just post in the topic and ask if there's any way to have the audio file re-posted, or a link to an external website.

I think some files may also have been lost in the recent site transition?

In any case, some of us host our files elsewhere, so it isn't always an issue. It would be nice to have everything up to date, though.
