There, wrote a short ad for it on my blog.  While not as many visitors as when I actually had time to wrote regularly, it's probably a fairly new segment since all my readers are Europeans.

Look man, I'm downloading it and will seed it sporadically, but this is just silly.

You should have bit the bullet and let the fucker get downloaded from FTL in chunks for no fee. 

The common person who floats through your main page has NO CLUE how to use torrents. 



It sorta makes a joke out of the word "market"  Thats just advertising 101. 

It looks like the "medium quality" version is available as a direct download.  Bandwidth ain't free, after all.

Maybe it should be available on CD in exchange for a contribution to the Ron Paul campaign, or as an AMP goody. I'd probably buy a couple. One for myself, and another for my local library.

I understand bandwidth isn't free.  Theres a lot of downloadable stuff on ftl.com which when clicked plays through your media player. 

When the NSFW topics were so vigorously debated, what was the big argument?  Work, of course.  Thats where a number of people said they listen to the show, myself included.  Plenty of time to do so, but not a friendly environment to use a bit client.  They get far more traffic from listeners streaming the show via the seven day list on a monthly basis than they would from the people who will hold their interest through all ten chapters of the book. 

I would imagine most people who aren't hardcore would stream the first few chapters and lose interest, no offense.  I think I saw someone say once they have a few TB of monthly traffic allotment.  A few hundred MB isn't going to make a dent, especially after the initial frenzy is past, which is happening right now. 

I think its cool that theres a HQ version circulating in torrent form.  I'm just saying it should be more accessable to the less computer literate with a simple click.  If they want people to hear it, simplicity is the key. 

I'll have to go back later and scope out the main page, when I initially looked it was a redirect to somewhere else, maybe I overlooked a link.  But it looked to me that there was no book hosted here, just the shows and promos. 

I don't really understand what your problem is.  The medium quality version is downloadable directly.  Why does someone need direct access to the high quality version specifically?  If they want it, then they need to know how to get it.

The 6 day FTL archives, as well as the medium quality version of the book aren't inherently streams.  If someone goes to get them, they will be downloading the entire thing first.  There might be software you can use to stream them, but the average user doesn't have that.

How about Pando?  There are three links:

  • High Quality = 329.1 MB AAC 128 kbps
  • Medium Quality = 177.9 MB AAC 64 kbps
  • Low Quality = 89.4 MB AAC 32 kbps

They're all up.  BTW, these links will last something like a couple weeks after the last person downloads, so it's a good idea to spread them around publicly to make them more nearly perpetual.

I loaded it onto two different players and couldn't get it to play on either. I wonder why...

Are you trying to play the actual .torrent file?

I uploaded the audiobook to what.cd and waffles.fm (the two largest bittorrent sites for music that have taken over since Oink got shut down). No downloads, yet, though. And no I'm going to give out invites :P
