This is a post that I, along with I suspect every other host of a blog or a web site, cringe about. September sees the expiry of my current Wetransfer subscription and whilst the aural sculptors site is free, there is a cost associated with file transfer and storage, without which there would not be much point to the site.
Following changes to Rapidshare some time ago, which rendered their service totally useless for this kind of site, I paid to switch over to Wetransfer, which provides an excellent and reliable service. Next years subs are due next month at £10 per month (paid once a year).
Don’t get me wrong, the site will continue regardless (I have invested too much time and effort over the past few years to drop it) so this is in no way a gun to the head post! That said, should any regular users of the site feel inclined to make a contribution to the cost of running it, that would be most welcome. There is a PayPal donation button that appears on the right hand side of the site. As I have said before, in no way is this site set up to make any money, so if donations received get to the point where the years fees are covered, I will state this to be the case and remove the donation button from the site.
Also, it is my sincere hope that Wetransfer, as good as they are, make some moves to increase their permanent storage capacity to a level that is more in keeping with the requirements of a site such as this.
Thanks as ever for your continued support of the site and for enduring my random ramblings!
