~I’m in the process of moving…

Hi~*, I just wanted to post an update here as it may appear that I've fallen off the edge of the earth (+_+)! I'm currently in the process of moving to a new home~♥ and as soon as I have things set up there much better than they are now I'll be sure to post a link here =).

Much of this is proving to be much more difficult than I ever thought it would be, but then again I've never had to move before so it's all really new to me. The biggest issues that I face right now are that all of my audio and videos here didn't make the move to WP completely, what I mean by that is that the links are there in posts but when you click on them they still refer you back to here on Vox……so the dilemma is that after the 30th when Vox closes none of my audio or videos will play or exist for that matter anymore =(. I'm guessing that WP just didn't accept them during the export process, but on a happier~* note all of my photos have safely made the move to WP so that's very much a relief…and there are probably way too many photos here already to begin with XD.

I also have to face the fact that none of my links in any of my posts will work, the ones that linked to other posts or photos, etc as they're all referring to Vox addresses….that's something I really can't realistically fix as it would take months….years? to go through each and every post and change the links to point to WP addresses. Luckily the tags I had on all posts are still there and they may help with searching however I'll still need to add "categories" to each post and well….that's going to take awhile (;´□`) !!。。so if you don't hear from me for awhile those are the things I'll be attending to……I'll miss you (´⌒`。)。

    You don't need to add categories on each post, just ignore them and take them out of the menu. You were already using tags as if they were categories here on Vox anyway, so no harm done.

    Dear MorningBerryz,VOX is closing. Particularly for you, it's a big shame regarding the efforts you've put into your blog: updates almost every day, hundreds (maybe even thousends) of news, photos, music samples, videos etc. you've posted here. Even if I myself haven't contributed to your VOX during the short time of my membership, I really regrett these bad news. From the experiences with my own Internet activities, I do appreciate the big efforts coming up to you in order to preserve all your work you've done on VOX so far.As for me the end of VOX is not such a tragedy since I've posted only two or three entries yet. You know, my particular interest is focussed on Vivian Hsu in the first place and actually I thought, VOX would be a nice place for talking about a few other Asian artists I came accross and raised my attention while surfing the Web for Vivian stuff.Anyway, I wish you much luck for all the work you're facing now – I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you!HawkbitPro Vivian (http://www.pro-vivian.net)Hawkbit's Forums (http://hbf.xuruoxuan.de)

  8. Things aren't looking so good right now, I won't be able to afford WP at the amount I'd have to pay every month just for space and I just checked Flickr and even with an unlimited account I still wouldn't be able to save any of my videos here as their maximum time allowed per video is 90 seconds. More importantly is that in just a few days I won't be able to post here anymore so I wouldn't be able to post a link~*….I think this is the longest that I've been so disconnected from writing and I'm getting the feeling that perhaps I won't write again.

If this place were smaller I think I'd be moved already, I never once took Vox for granted but things here were really amazing~* and especially when I now realize how much WP charges for space and it expires each month so it's really not an option to pay that much to write a blog and especially since I've been writing to make friends and have fun with it…..not for profit. I'll miss you.

  12. It's actually not looking very good. I guess what's written here minus the audio and videos can exist elsewhere as an archive but with TypePad they didn't import a lot of my posts (91) and they're actually the larger and important posts to me =(…..I'll end up deleted that site shortly and it also has a really really odd search engine which gives really random results and also leaves out directly linked posts :/. WP is also much too expensive to pay for every month for space and videos so I can't continue there.

  13. A~h Vanessa Mae came here to Hawaii for a concert a few years ago….I only have one of her albums though but she's really awesome!!

I will miss being able to write and add media so freely like I we were able to here @ Vox =(. I put a lot of myself into the posts here….Mmm..lol maybe spending way too much time I wonder XD. I still haven't moved anywhere that will be permanent and even if I am able to move okay to somewhere I don't think I'll be able to post a link here after all…as the ability to post here will end on the 14th I think? Thank you~* for your friendship and I will miss everyone, if it's meant to be then maybe we will meet again one day =).

  15. Thank you~* so much!! I'm now realizing that I added too much content here and this being my first and only blog I didn't know that you needed to pay for blog sites elsewhere XD. My cousin helped me by paying $89.95 for additional space and that was just to add the rest of the photos to WP, would just be too expensive to keep blogging as even that extra space will expire in a month =(. It doesn't look like I'll be able to post a link here, even if I'm somehow able to keep writing a blog as soon we won't be able to post to Vox in just a few days. I do believe in things being "meant to be", so maybe we'll meet again one day too ^ ^。

Also if you want we can exchange email addresses that way we can keep in touch 🙂 I hope you can find a site that will allow you to archive all of your posts because you put alot of your heart into wroting them, and i'd hate to see them gone forever. Oh, you could copy and paste the posts that did not make it into a wordpad document then save them to your computer, that way you have them on your computer ready for their new home if you find one.

I was just reading something scary about those sites like where someone used the service and then tried to sell it :O…..but luckily this blog won't even fit on their archive system as I think they only allow 50MB…I think this blog is way over 30GB in size and with all audio and video maybe even larger.

    Err… RSS feeds have nothing to do with this, don't bother with that link. You don't need a service like WP, you need a computer turned on and connected to the Internet the whole day, all year long, with a good enough connection speed to handle all your blog's traffic, and a system administrator to install all the server software and WordPress for you. Or some company that will take care of all that and bill you monthly.

  35. Oh okay, so I would still need much more…now I'm thinking if my memory doesn't expire each month then to pay for 2GB/month plus video…?? $150/year with 25GB being $89.95. Funny the 25GB option at WP is no longer visible, I wonder if it's because I already purchased it or if they discontinued that amount? I guess when you think of it as being $12.50/month it doesn't sound so bad….although Vox was free XD.

  36. HarimaKenji says:

    I would still strongly discourage you from getting the video upgrade and posting videos directly on WP, that will drain your 25GB very very fast.Unfortunately that's not right, because your memory does expire every year. So, if you now have 25 + 3 = 28gb and you don't get any other upgrade until next year, when this 25gb expires, you have to pay for it again. You don't lose what you have uploaded already, but you can't upload any more before paying. So, you'd pay for the 25 you have and then if you want 25 more for the other year, you have to pay for 25 more. So, it's 50 in 2 years, 75 in 3, and give up in 4.But I still think you can keep going just renewing the 25 for quite a few years, if you maybe upload videos to MediaFire or some other streaming site besides YouTube.

  37. Okay that's not happening XD!!…I'm thinking that maiZe realized that this blog would be too large and I totally understand that now =) I don't think you could have a blog with media for free so either I'll have to pay the $150/year or just preserve what's already here in WP as an archive and not write anymore.

  38. Do you think audio would be okay? Wait I don't even know if I can add audio to WP :P!! So if I don't add the video upgrade it'll cost $89.95 for 25GB….I wonder if they're using the calendar year or if it's one year from when you made the purchase? U~n YouTube is like kryptonite for videos but I wonder if WP will allow you to embed them there. So wait, would that be like $7.50/month without the video upgrade assuming I use no more than 2GB a month =).

    Hum… So you have about 25 images per post, which would be about 3MB if small and compressed, meaning if you make one 25-photos post every day it would take you 2 years and a half to use 3GB. Let's use 3GB because it's a good, free amount that we can compare to. I suggest MediaFire for both audio and video, but let's say you just use it for video and put the audio in WordPress. Also I'll randomly take 10 songs per week as an average, so you can post something like a whole CD in a week. If they're mp3 (you could do better than mp3, but keeping it easy) it's reasonable to take 5MB for one song, so 50 extra MBs a week. With 3MB everyday posts + 50MB of songs a week, you'd take about 10 months to use 3GB.
