out of circulation for a bit

Hey folks,
I will be out of town for a week starting Monday 11/24 and will not be vining then. I am sure I will have some goodies waiting for me when I get back and I will send them on as soon as I can. Just wanted to inform everyone of the upcoming delay in a few of the vines and let you know that they have not fallen prey to vine killing syndrome. Peace.

Extra Storage Suggestion

Excellent post, Stuman. One thing I've been doing lately is re-cycling old ide hard drives. I got 2 cables that allow me to hook up any ide hard drive as an external IDE drive (one cable has a female IDE connector (that plugs into the back of the hard drive) on one end and a usb connector on the other. The other cable is a power cable that plugs into the 4 pins of the hard drive power connection. This allows me to re-cycle lots of old (otherwise obsolete) IDE hard drives as off-line storage devices - thus freeing up space on my main pc for downloading / copying etc... You can find these cables anywhere - I got mine for $5 on ebay - but I've seen outrageous prices at places like circuit city, radio shack, and best buy.

shn/flac made easy

Hey folks , I noticed on the new vines thread that folks are haveing a hard time with converting ,, well I recentley discovered an easy way for converting .. I have an old computer with limited memory , recentley we made a run to Staples, the external hard drives are on sale , so we got one (maxtor 500 gig).. I now copy the dvd into my external hard drive , (i have the traders little helper ) , then open hard drive, go to file and click on TLH, click on convert audio,
the files show up , then click decode , after decoding is complete close hard drive , re-open it , and then you can open the shn/flac file. your computer will show both the shn/flac and the wav file converted and ready to burn via i-tunes or whatever media you use ..
it`s like copy and four clicks .. I found this to be incredibley easy .. I hope this helps other folks .. if anyone has any questions on this feel free to pm me and i will do what i can to help you .. Hope everyone has a nice sunday !! peace and sunshine to all !!

I usually will send pms to the next person on the vine for about a week. I am always hopeful that those pms or even posting on that thread will do it to connect. But as erickat said sometimes life happens (or work, computer, etc) and sometimes it has taken longer to connect. But not usually.
For the most part people are into sending out the vine to the next person or in notification of their address to gett the vine send out to them.
Sometimes stuff does happen and we have to reseed (have done a couple of those) but not as often as one would think, especially given the volume of shows and the number of viners. We have really send out a great quantity of quality shows from the Vineyard. the intent is to share and with that in mind, the sharing seems to just go around (and around).
grdaed73, Hang loose, jump in, and have fun. This has been a wonderful place to meet other heads, get GREAT music, and expand my library.
Hope that wasn't too much of a nonanswer, but go with the flow and enjoy.

and the answer is....

it depends (sorry)

Whenever i sign up on a vine, I immediately PM the person in front of me, letting them know I'm behind them & give them my mailing address. If people don't do this, then they risk being skipped - they can always get back in the loop later. If you have no response within a few business days (say 2 to 4) feel free to go to the next person on the list. What I normally do is ask for the next person's address right up front, just in case, then, if after what seems like a reasonable time passes, I'm either ready to send it to the next on the list of the next next person on the list. The thing is here - paying attention. Those who don't pay attention should not hold up the vine - and a held up vine should not cause a re-seed. Re-seeds just foment irresponsibility when they are asked for too often. Re-seeding (especially from the original seeder) should be the last resort - when a vine is totally dead - not just MIA. I guess the key thing is that putting your name as the "next in line" comes with a responsibility - it's like will-call - you still have to show up & claim the tickets - otherwise, they will be given to someone else.
