Whats with the Audioblog?

Have been trying to upload audio, and its just taking forever to upload. Then I get fed up and close the window and try again.

This has been happening from yesterday.

So whats happening?

And also decided the config for my laptop and this is how it is:

80GB Hard Drive
NVIDIA GeForce FX
Go5200 (64MB DDR)
WiFi Enabled
FireWire
Digital/analog audio
DVI & S-Video out
Dual link DVI
1 GB RAM
Bluetooth
DVD Writer

And the other thing that I am alo doing, is to get the entire collection of Amar Chitra Katha. I think Mr. Anant Pai, who started this movement, must be given a HUGE award. For instilling our culture into young minds.

For now the site offers only about 300 titles. The rest are not with them. I actually had about a 100, ten bound volumes of ten titles each, and as time went, I misplaced a couple and therest were flicked by God knows who. I have only 2 or maybe 3 volumes of that left. I guess it will be a long wait, to get all that they have ever published. So if there is anyone out there who has ACKs and doesnt want them, send it across to me :)

You won't believe this - My brother ordered all the issues and they shipped it to him a few months back.!!! via Sea Mail.!!! he loves it.!! Great job indeed AMK.

I don't have any problems with Audioblog. Sometimes when they do the maintenance it becomes slow. Have you tried google's own audioblogger?

You have a very nice config for the Laptop. So what brand is it going to be ??.

Chinmayi - I am trying to get the mahabarata (the entire episodes set) - but they say its out of stock - I mailed them and they replied to me saying it will be in stock soon - I am yet to see them in stock :(

Soundar G said...

Laptop config looks impressive. Whats the processor? Is it Intel Centrino or Intel P4?

Thanks,
Soundar

Chez said...

Nice config. No USB?? only Firewire?? Firewire is Apple's favourite. But they are slowly discontinuing it. Are u sure u r goin for it? By the config, i think u r goin Apple way. Are u??? :-)

Chinmayi said...

Magnus: Yeah very apple. forgot the USB! he he:) I need it even to conenct my phone on!
Surya: On Amar Chitra Katha's website
Arjuna: yep.. lot of it is not in stock!

Rags said...

Chinmayi - Important of All whats your budget for this config...You will get this config with Dell, Compaq and also Sony....but they have different price ranges...

Rags said...

Almost forgot - I was told that CD/DVD writer combo is a No No...It has lots of problems... People recommend CD RW / DVD Rom combo...if you need DVD writer buy an external one...

All this on a P4 is less cost but heavy...but its more money and less weight on a Centrino

Chinmayi said...

Rags: sorry i this is dumb, if I get an external one, how do I connect it? will remember the centrino. and actually budget can be worked out. I just need these specs to be fulfiled.

Surya said...

Thanks Chinmayi...just tried out amarchitrakatha.com.

In this page:

Reference to 1971...does not seem right.

Thats where the USB drive comes handy, U can connect the external DVD burner to ur laptop through the USB port, which is the case with almost all external DVD writers.

Just not too sure about FireWire, Its not something which is happening big time now! Rest all looks quite cool!

Cheers,

Harish Sivaramakrishnan said...

Read USB drive as USB port! Sorry about that one!

Jo said...

If you are using www.audioblog.com, sometimes you may see the status as "processing..." after finish uploading. In that case, after 5 minutes, click on the song name displayed and it will take you to the job status as complete.

Narayanan Venkitu said...

Chinmayi,

Too busy..!! Too busy...!! Sorry.

When you get a chance please listen to Jo's audioblogs. I like his singing a lot.!

Ganesh said...
