Guys, a lot of things were fixed and done on Disc Shelf for the past couple of weeks, also the ability to embed albums was added (you can read on that in FAQ).

However, the provider is experiencing technical difficulties, so for the past week Disc Shelf was slow as hell, especially for people in the USA. I am very sorry for that. In most cases you can just hit pause and it will buffer, just like with YouTube.

Anyway, I once more invite you over - the service now runs smoothly and as for connection problems they will be resolved soon as we will move to another provider.

I remember I created a page for Elwood.

For several months I had to fight for it and explain to wikipedia editors that Elwood is indeed a notable figure. Finally, the debates stopped and the page seems to be confidently sitting in the encyclopedia. So be ready to fight for TMA.

Security issue:

It is not appropriate to return a different error for "Wrong username" and "Wrong password", as that enables a hacker to determine and verify a login name that exists. It is more appropriate to return a generic error for both invalid username and invalid password.

Forgotten password:

I've forgotten mine, and I don't see a way to create a new one. I do hope that you aren't storing passwords in plain text in the database. If you need to do password recovery the best way to do that is to generate a new one into a temporary table and then request via the email address the user registered with to activate that password, which in turn then is hashed and activated.

Forgotten password can now be retrieved, please login and add some music )
All the advice was implemented as well, thanks )

As for thumbnails I am exploring different solutions so they won't be too memory heavy.

thx for the advice, the password hashes are quite sophisticated and I do use salts ;)

Thanks for all the input!
I am going to be using GD library for handling the pics, hopefully will do that during weekend. Will make the login error generic, thanks for suggestion, and this weekend will create the recovery password system passwords are not stored as plain text)
Since this is an important issue, I will try to do the pass recovery system asap, maybe even before weekends.

Well, sometimes you can see that the music is not perfect. But somehow it touches you.

Dunno who this guy is, never heard of him before, but yesterday he put an album on Disc Shelf and it is very-very nice. Funny how you can discover a great artist without him being in any charts and stuff.

Actually, things are not that bad anymore.

they have a website up
there Yes posts news. All mp3 were recovered by the data recovery company and they are trying to recover the rest.

So far, I think it is great - the community is great! Everyone donates money and helps with very useful advice.

I am proud of the demoscene.
