This page hosts all of the episodes of the ChipSID Show as created and presented by Max Hall on Radio Free Matlock.
I originally hosted the episodes via a combination of two cloud solutions – Dropbox and Box – but the shows were only available in MP3 format. This was purely due to the file sizes of the original FLAC versions that Max supplied.
In April 2019, after 9 shows were published using the above methods, I got my arse into gear and created this ‘sort of official’ page to host the shows.
The site’s blog will still announce the new episodes as and when they are available, but will just direct visitors to this page from Episode 10 onwards.
The .FLAC version is made available to the Patreon Supporters first. A few days later, I upload the .FLAC and .MP3 files to the various cloud hosts, set up the Bit.Ly shortcuts and then everyone else can grab their copies.
Spreading the (down)load(s)
The downloads still use Bit.Ly shortcuts. This is purely so that a full history of all the download stats per episode can be given to Max, as and when he needs it.
- The FLAC versions will be hosted on my Dropbox account.
- The ‘Shitty MP3’ (*) variants will be hosted directly on this site, along with mirrored copies on my Dropbox and Box accounts.
(*) As mentioned by someone in the ChipSID Facebook group
Please try and download from the different sources. This spreads the load and will hopefully not generate any “stop using your cloud account for MP3 files” type emails from the two hosts that I’m using.
Note: If you are able to supply some bandwidth of your own for hosting all of the episodes, then get in touch with Max and I’ll happily add the links to where you’re hosting the episodes.
