BT Sync brings the DSC back home

Friday, January 17th, 2014

A few days ago Adam Curry tweeted that he was looking for a full archive of mp3’s from the Daily Source Code Podcast (aka ‘DSC’ or Delta Sierra Charlie). It got me to dust off some DVDs on which I burned all (yes, ALL 😉 ) of them! Adam created a BitTorrent Sync Archive and currently all ‘my’ mp3’s are being downloaded and shared by 15-20 DSC fans (if you want in, the BTSync key is B5XIHOVFXGSA2QXS7ED6ONN4KG5JTH6T6). Mind you, the archive is in total well over 31GB (!!), Adam’s dedicated DSC server still has about 1.5GB to go…he he

BitTorrent Sync is THE sharing tool for geeks (and soon for the ‘masses’) these days, it is a private and secure Dropbox alternative (/-killer) which is not only faster, it also doesn’t have the 2GB ‘free’ limitation, no limits on file-sizes or bandwidth and it does not rely on penetrable servers (/NSA spying or other threats), me like! Ha, my upload pipe is smoking hot as it has never been used so intensely as in the past days! 🙂

Oh, and thx for the kindly note Adam…no question that after this early pre-DSC encounter we are DSC-buddies for life! 🙂

Hugh Macleod: “Part of understanding the creative urge is understanding that it’s primal. Wanting to change the world is not a noble calling, it’s a primal calling.”
