Monday, March 30th, 2009

Within minutes of posting the latest uploads to the Library, I got e-mails from two eagle-eyed sluthes informing me that ”The Clutching Hand’ was the sound track to a movie serial!!!

/
/
/It’s been removed.

Where does the Spam messages come from?

Friday, March 27th, 2009

Hi All,
/
/
/
/I’ve just completed deleting 33 pages of spam messages.  Unfortunately I might have deleted a few good ones while doing so!
/
/
/
/You have to register to post a message on this blog, so where are the spam messages coming from?  Posts from registered users show up attached to whatever message they are referring to, but the spam messages all have to be ‘approved’.  They clog up the comments section unless I delete them on a daily basis.

Your Help Is Needed

Sunday, March 22nd, 2009

The Old Time Radio Researchers group is committed to bringing to the community not only FREE downloadable series, but our members spend thousands of hours designing CD artwork, writing descriptions about series and episodes, and preparing other materials that add to the enjoyment of the series.
/
/
/
/Our dedicated CD artwork designers can spend literally 40 hours designing just on CD jewel case cover.  And they are posted to the Art Gallery on our sister site at www.otrr.org for use by collectors.  It’s plainly stated in the introduction that commercial sites are forbidden to use them.
/
/
/
/But there are always people who cannnot and will not play by the rules.  They are too lazy to design artwork themselves or to prepare otr series, they have to steal others’ hard work.
/
/
/
/Recently one of our members discovered such a thief.  He runs this commerical site, where he not only is using our artwork without permission, he has stolen every one of our certified otr series and all accompanying materials!!  It appears that he’s using our series descriptions from archive.org word for word as ‘his’ blurbs!!!  How dishonest can you get?
/
/
/
/I would ask each of you who enjoys the FREE downloadable materials you find on this site to lodge a compaint with this person.
/
/
/
/Please go to – www.all-otr.com/, find the ‘contact us’ button, and e-mail this thief and request that he cease from using stolen materials on his site.  Ask him to immediately remove any and all OTRR originated materials and create his own instead of leeching other people’s work.
/
/
/
/It will only take you about five minutes.

Updates to the Library

Wednesday, March 11th, 2009

Hi All,
/
/
/
/You might think a enormous number of series is being added to the Library this time, and you’d be partially right.  We are adding several ‘S’ series that have a good number of episodes.  But the ‘T’s will fool you.  These are files I accidentally ran across on my hard drive!  They were not in any share folder.  Nearly every one is a single episode, but a few are more.  These are all that are known to exist from these series.
