I see that someone has put torrents for a lot of the albums as Limited Edition Mini Vinyl Re-Issue. What are these, are they worth getting?

not really, they're equal as the original Queen releases, no artwork included. You should try buy them instead.


Please will you direct me in the right way?

So, if I have the original albums on cassette, vinyl and CD, these are of no interest?

they have the same quality of the cd's. The only reason to get them is if you are a collector, but you have to get them originally of course. No reason for downloading them. As i said no artwork included, and that would had been one reason to download.

Ah the 2001 remasters. Well, they're different to the 1994/98 batch, so it's up to you. But yes, better to buy them...hmm?

Peace,
Adam.

It'll be back up shortly I think.

An announcement is expected soon, but it sounds to me like it's going to be subscription based.

Just what I read on another board..

Exclusive: Life at SuprNova.org
posted Dec 28, 04 | 11:27 am
A few days back we reported on a site that called the SuprNova.org shutdown a hoax. Well, it appears that the site, or its rumored project "Exeem", may be making an appearance.
[more]
An update recently posted to SuprNova.org's homepage...
"It has been more then a week since SuprNova.org went down. We are sorry that we have not updated the site with more recent news, but we have been very busy.
Anyway, we will soon be making an announcement. Announcement will be made on NovaStream.org radio on 30th December around 10 PM CET (9 PM GMT, 4 PM EST)."

Back on the 1st of December, Slyck ran an article about SuprNova working on a project to decentralize BitTorrent. Well, this is it. The project was apparantly under heavy, yet closed-to-the-public beta-testing at the time of the site's closure, and due to recent MPAA action against many BitTorrent file sites, SuprNova has clearly moved onto Phase B... by ditching their central servers. Sounds like the torrent sites are going to be giving the movie companies even more of a headache now... yet this time, they're one step ahead.

A quote from Slyck's article:
"The BitTorrent tracker, similar to a central server, has been the great weakness of any P2P network. Although BitTorrent trackers do not operate identically to indexing servers, they still act like traffic cops - directing traffic to their intended destination. SuprNova.org, while not a tracker per se, still operates as a impromptu tracker as it points traffic to the actual tracker. Regardless, the bandwidth consumption remains enormous. This equates to prolonged searches, lengthy load times and other typical slow downs associated with the World Wide Web."

I too, am happy to see life at Suprnova.org. It was a much loved site and even though I hadn't been going there much, I had still picked up the tv and concert stuff on there. Always a treat to find the Glastonbury performances or an exclusive tv series online.

I'm very happy to have read about this new way of working the site. I'm sure it'll help people once more!

Peace,
Adam.
