***To all Jokelben server users***

The server is back up and running again. Last Thursday night Bobtu the owner of the server discovered that someone had been on the server converting shows from MP3 format which is the format most if not all of the shows are in, to m4a format. The m4a format is the format associated with Apple IPod's and other Apple related products. Bobtu decided to restore the mp3 formats using his back-up copy of the server files when the entire server crashed during Bobtu's restoration effort. Bobtu contacted the hosting company and was told that they were working on restoring the server. It is now back up and running at this point

The conversion of the show files is now the second instance in the last 6 weeks or so of problematic use of the server. A few weeks ago I discovered that a number of odd and unusual files had been uploaded to the server. I contacted Bobtu to let him know and he checked out the uploads which were a large amount of viruses and malware files. After Bobtu cleaned the viruses off of the server he decided to change the password for ftp access to the server.

It is important to remember that having the Jokelben server and it's vast library of Jimmy Buffett shows is both an honor and privilege that should be respected by all. If you want the show files in a file format other then mp3 simply ask on the bootleg trading forum here or the concert trading forum over at Buffettnews and someone like myself or Sunlover will gladly help you out in showing you how to go about converting the files.

I for one have believed for a long time that the "P" in Parrothead stands for Peace and or Peaceful which if adhered to will keep things like Jokelben around for a long time.

Phins UP

Thanks for the info! I love jokelben; it's a wonderful resource for Parrotheads! Thank you and Bobtu for all your hard work.

I download the shows and transfer the over to ITunes and have never had a problem. Thanks for keeping the shows coming.

I've got my toes in the grass, my ass in a chair since I live nowhere near a beach.

Wishing I was still in St. John because I think I have found me a home.
