So, ladies and gents, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this is an issue that needs to be addressed.

As I found out from Richter a week or so ago, OverLooked ReMiX has become too large for him to host any longer. He's pretty much paying out of his own pocket too, as we aren't a large enough site to garner a consistent traffic flow, and I'm pretty sure the revenue off of ads is miniscule at best.

Thus, I don't know how much longer we'll be around. The only option Richter and I could think of is to release songs on YouTube, and then host a torrent of all of the songs for people who want individual copies of them. Richter did also move the songs to another hosting, but that's only saved them; we can't post new remixes, and we have at least one new site project to release that can't be hosted on the server. This is why we haven't had a new remix in about a month.

If anyone would like to lend a hand with anything (even if it comes to torrenting, just having some seeds), it would be greatly appreciated. Obviously I'm not looking for someone to just take and host the site, but even some alternative options than what Richter and myself have thought of would help us. Although if you would consider hosting, contact Richter at richtaur at gmail dot com, and/or myself at xenonodyssey at hotmail dot com.

Thanks for giving this a read.

I guess my comment over in the forums about "coming to the party after the cops already busted it" wasn't too far off...

This is a shame! I can't host anything and have no idea about solutions, though... Crying or Very sad

I'll try to get my torrentbox up and running sometime today and seed what I can.

SOMEONE GIVE ME THE FUNDS FOR A TIME MACHINE, QUICK! I can go back to the past to save the future that is now, which is the future to the past but to us is the present and will hopefully be a non-future to the other future's past...what the hell was I gonna do again?

I'm hungry for lulz.

So this is it, huh. OLRemix is fucked. OLRemix is no more. No one really even particularly cares, or if they do there's nothing they can do. The site's gone, kaput. There will be no more silly remixes, not here anyway.

hey guys,

even if the songs had to be hosted on youtube and torrents, there'd still be the site Razz

good news! http://www.olremix.ocrmirror.org/mp3/ herograw to the rescue.

songs are there now. LMK if you find any broken links!

soon i will update the site to put new remixes there, too. more to come!
