I am trying to jump start a re-seed of the NYE 83 Vine.
Maybe we can get some others going again. Post a comment or send me a PM.

Hal you need to take care of what matters most - you have been a solid member of our vining community for a long time and for those of us that have been along for the ride know that you would never intentionally hold up the vines. I sincerely hope that all is well with you and yours. The vines can wait. If we need to help on the vine side let us know. PM if needed.

Take care Hal.
I know it is a pain that I have held up these vines and that for those of you that don't know me you may think I am not responsible, I am and I will not dissappear. They will get out. Please bear with me.
Thanks JS and EDA for knowing that I am a long term player who has had major interuptions in life. Hearing that helps. I hope to post more here on the weekend and get things moving then again.

Hal is a very good viner. We also always accomodate people when they are having health, computer, family or any other life issues. Those are the most important things to take care of. Right? Also we used to do a better job at ensuring a vine is actually dead and gone before doing a re-seed. It is not feasible to re-seed every vine that stalls for awhile especially when it is stalled due to the issues already described. I think there is enough music circulating around where we can be patient while others get their issues worked out to get stalled vines going again. I realize that some vines disappear for good but many others that are stalled can get going again if we take the time to figure out where it was last seen and getting a hold of that person. Just my 2 cents.

I would be willing to help re-seed vines. If anyone can contact a person higher on the list (before the break) that may be willing to transfer the particular "stuck vine" files to a flash drive, I would be willing to send my 16GB flash drive to that person to facilitate the transfer. The transfer time should be quick and the return postage to me is about $2 USPS First Class.
When I get the flash drive back I could burn the FLAC/SHN files to DVD-R or CD-R as needed and get them out to next person on the list. A quick re-start to the vine. My cost would be minimal (B&P) and I would get quite a few shows in the process.
Since I am in the "in-between job" abyss, I could turn this around pretty quick. Let me know your thoughts here or via a PM. I would like to make a contribution to this system.

you aren't being pushy, they will start moving, I do not have a working computer and I have lost everyone's address due to computer crash, I am working on this. After being on the vines for over three years and keeping up with them I am really struggling to get at them now due to many health issues that have plagued direct family members for over the past year and which I must devote my energy to. Sorry, it is kind of hard to direct energy towards vines but will do so. It sucks for the vining community and it sucks for me to have to write a note like this. Please resend me your address and I will get off to you what you are next on the list for, thanks, peace
Since then have not heard a peep. Although it would be grate to see the vines move again, I hope all is well there. I find it hard to believe that he would intentionally kill these vines like some others (not to mention any names, but I'm sure we could all think of a boy).
I was wondering if someone would be able to reseed the Elvis Costello & Friends 4-24-89 vine. I tried contacting the person above me on the list several times. I know he has had a pc problem but I don't know if he has been able to resolve it.
thanks in advance,
of two vines the FWGV #3 and #5. #3 died with txjed and #5 died with solix. any help is appreciated.........
