I'm _____ and I have the MP3 library at http://catholicaudio.us. You have extensive links to my anonymous ftp server at ftp://188.8.131.52. This is fine, as over a thousand files a day are downloaded, 24x7. Here's the problem: a week ago Romanian hackers attacked my server, shutting it down for a day. They had the temerity to leave behind a calling card with "mariaave" on it, showing they know just what they are doing.If you notice you're having trouble downloading some files, this is probably why. I'll get to work on the problem, but it won't be a quick fix since I have no idea how to do a global search-and-replace through blogger. In the interim, I apologize for any inconvenience.
I managed to get the server limping along but had to move everything to a new server, at a new IP address. So for the moment the old server is up but it could crash at any time under the repeated hacker attacks. Here's how you can help: do a global search-and-replace of your links. Every place you have "184.108.40.206", replace it with "catholicaudio.us". I have kept the relative paths, directories, and file names the same to minimize your effort.
You might want to try testing it yourself after converting a single links page. Once you know the new links work, you can convert the rest. This new server is much more advanced and secure. Plus, if I have to change platforms again, the named-server will resolve better than a hard IP address.
