After Stagolee week, we apparently made it on to the radar of several websites that like to hotlink my files. I tried to impliment a hotlink protection script, however that made lots (and lots) of users unable to download any files. The problem lies in that my blog is on blogspot and my server is on a different domain, and that the script isn't very effective. The only solution in light of the increased leeching of my site is to establish Honey, Where You Been So Long? on it's own domain name and dedicated server.

I guess we are going to nab prewarblues.org but I'm open to any other (more creative suggestions) for domain names. The other issue is of payment. I'm more than comfortable to foot the bill for the server each month as to prevent annoying and ineffective advertisements to mess up the page. I will however, open a donation page (through paypal) for people to donate to help me with the server cost. The suggested donation is $5 but any amount is acceptable. I'm working on a few perks for those who do donate - like more mix cds (that get sent out in a reasonable time!) and other perks.

I hope this isn't to awful. I'm not trying to quit my job and live off the profits of running a pre-war blues blog - I'm just asking for help (in the most tofuhut like manner possible without getting sued) to cover part of the server charges. Feel free to swear at me in the comments section if this is unreasonable. But I think it's a wonderful opportunity and if everything goes properly could allow Honey, Where You Been So Long to blossom into much bigger site.

Could you provide a PO box as I would prefer to mail a check. I do not like using paypal.

Keep up the good work providing good music.

You've obviously seen the gobs and gobs of cash to be made from blogging about 60-year old songs, and just like ALL the rest of them, you sold out without a second thought.

I knew it would come to this once they started featuring Charly Patton on The OC.4/26/2005 03:20:12 PM|||LadyCas|||Woa there Mr. Sellout! Mr. Patnaik is doing this out of neccessity, not as a money making scheme. Blame the hotlinkers for crashing his site, not him!! The quality of this site has not changed. It saddens me to see your post!

He should do whatever it takes to keep this site up!4/26/2005 03:24:29 PM|||LadyCas|||This post has been removed by the author.4/26/2005 04:01:12 PM|||Anonymous|||Hey Lady--

I think he was joking...

P.S.-- the url looks great, and I too, would probably contribute in a more traditional (non-PayPal)manner, certainly if mix CD's were involved...4/26/2005 04:08:01 PM|||Anonymous|||BTW, is Louis on this recording (or any you have?)?

I have read (in several sources) that he recorded with Clarence Williams, but I've never heard the sides myself...

GJ4/26/2005 05:01:40 PM|||peter patnaik|||yea. i think he was joking as well.

i'm not sure if armstrong is on this recording, i do have a few Sara Martin sides with louis armstrong playing with the clarence williams band if you want to hear those.

mix cds are apart of my donation policy. email for my mailing address.4/27/2005 01:43:04 AM|||sleepybomb|||charley patton on the o.c.? what is this world coming to? what next? all the ultra elite indie kids are gonna be bluesin down, checkin for robert johnson, muddy waters and smiley lewis? oh, wait, that ain't such a bad thing after all.10/20/2005 12:59:40 PM|||Swingin80|||Cool blog you have.
