/If you have NOT read the FAQs, please do so now.  The monthly limit on one person’s downloads is 10 GIGS.  Two people have gone way over that for October, and their download privileges have been canceled for the rest of the month.  You might want to look into getting a program that monitors your uploads and downloads.  A nice free one has been previously mentioned here.  I’m using it and am well pleased with it.

NEW SERIES ADDED

Wednesday, September 17th, 2008

Thanks to a very dedicated worker and member of the Old Time Radio Researchers group, Michael Harron, we continue to have new stuff to load up.  Mike has done yeomans work during the past few weeks, and I’m glad that he’s continued to work on this project with me.
/
/
/
/The move of otrr.org to this server(blue host) is nearly complete.  However, the wiki is still not operational, and the art gallery, while there, seems to be missing all the art – all 5,000 pieces of it!  Our techs – Jim Jones and Any_Ol_One continue to work on getting everything back in working order.  If Blue Host will keep us, we’ll stay forever.  One of the things that prompted the move is the fact that they offer unlimited storage space, and unlimited bandwidth, which is a big plus, and the cost is extremely reasonable.  Another plus is that you can contact their support staff via an800 number.  So if you’re looking for a new server for your site, give them a look-see.

Hi everyone!

/Keep an eye on your downloads.  Remember you are restricted to 10 gig in a month, and several of you are already close to that limit.  I recommend a neat little program called ‘Netmeter’ to keep up with your bandwidth usage.  It’s especially helpful for those of us whose internet providers have limited our bandwidth.  It can be found at  =
