    I would like to say to all of you new members that this board is much more that a place where you can get your five postings done. Posting promotes companionship and an Identity to the face. I encourage all new members to follow my lead and work their way up the ranks. Get to the level where you can have an avatar. If you get good you will see your name glowing and people will recognize who you are. That is what MIDIBuddy is about.

    Great thread Raven..(one of the newbie's Mods please sticky this one)

    Alot of us just came here for the MIDI's...but stuck around...the MIDIbuddy Community(and thats what it is....a community) is more than Just MIDI files. THere is a whole plethora of Information here relating to all things music...and there is always someone who knows that answers. So if you have other questions...just post them in the correct forum and the answers shall be yours

    yeah it seems like last few months more and more people a joining. It's gotten crazy. I came for the midis for my website but I stayed because it's a great place to hang out and chat about your hobbies and the like. Knowledge is power. I know midibuddy changed servers a few nights back it seems slower than b4 the change. I have dsl. It's like the server won't respond to me for a short while.

    Haven't changed yet. Probably this weekend... The errors you see are the reason I'm switching.. I loaded http://64.21.12.54/board/ notice how much faster it is... (the links aren't correct yet... click on the table highlight)

    don't actually post anything.. I'll be updating the database soon. ;)

    YUP...the errors come up much faster on that site :D :D ....

    I am guessing the backend thread database isn't in yet?

    or is it the URL hack not there yet.

    My avatar is changed and good. I don't think anyone would confuse me an voiceofgod, but I wanted to change it anyway. Tell me what you think of it. I'm considering keeping this as my regular one, unless I get feedback that you guys don't like it

    56k is limited to 6kb/s. I get 30bk/s for about 15 seconds on big posts so the speed for 56ker's won't matter so much. It won't be a lot faster except when alot of people are using the site at the same time then that's when things get slow.

    Ronny, that would be very cool. I would like you to do that for me if you could. I'm going to work on racking up the posts so I can choose custom. Thanks
