D-Rockets and his EP, Matt Wisecarver’s Secret Fantasy, have pushed Mr. Furious Records to set a new record for music downloaded in one month – August 2005, with 1210 mb of data transferred from our servers, is the new # 1. 1210 mb = 1.2 GB!!!111 This is our first time over one gig on the site. Congratulations to Derek, the new MFR listeners who found us through The Return / Sexual Jedi / The Ashtray Life, and the hardcore MFR fans – looking at the site statistics we know it took both first-timers and regular listeners to make August happen.
The breakdown; 1210 mb is the total amount of data downloaded from the mrfuriousrecords.com server during August. 942 mb of that was “traffic viewed” (i.e. not robots/spiders), and 93.4% of that was .m4a (audio) data. Average song size is about 3.8 mb, so (assuming aborted downloads transferred 0 mb, which is not quite accurate) something like 231 SONGS were downloaded directly from the website in August. Of course many of you burn, file-trade via P2P, and otherwise share our music in ways that go far beyond direct downloads from mrfuriousrecords.com – keep it up.
And what record-setting timing; our 1-year anniversary (birthday?) is September 21!!!111 To celebrate, there will be BIG BIG NEWS at www.mrfuriousrecords.com . Something killer is being planned, and you will be happy if you check out the site that day. So mark your calendars, warm up your broadband, and get set. MFR v2.0 is headed your direction in 3 weeks.
