API API API
I'd like an API. iTunes users are accostomed to purchasing music through their iTunes software, and it would be *very* easy to mimic this behavior using Files Forever and apps like Amarok if you provided an API. Pretty please!!!

I just started trying this out, and whenever I add my item to the shopping cart, then try to checkout, it says my cart is empty.

This sounds like it could be really cool, but I don't think it's working for me. I get a fancy-looking 404. After I log-in, there's still a 404.

Same here. I can't get anything other than 404 pages. I try the "I'm new" create-a-new-account checkbox, and still get 404...

first Files Forever album?

https://files.dreamhost.com/5311/e4e5.zip

Artist: CHRIS GARVER
Album : e4/e5 (2006)

e4e5.zip (82MB) contains 14 Mp3s (320kbps). Cover art included.

FOURTEEN shady tales of harmolodic & misanthropic folk-rock!
Songs about elected servants and employed servants. Songs about shock and awe, the beatniks, & holy Moses. Songs about Paul Bunyan, Tammy Faye, & Zelda Fitzgerald. Posthumous songs, sacreligious songs, contradictory slanderings... Jewelry store robberies, the language virus, & the reawakening of the languished American dream?

========================
01 An Oath, an Oath, I have an Oath
02 No Ideas But in Things

Good luck selling your music on a site that no one can log into and that empties your cart upon checkout!

I'd love to try this out, but issues abound..

I have a promo code setup, email me if you like.

what I want to know, is what files are we allowed to upload and sell on files.dreamhost.com ?

anything? you mean, the Madonna and Pink Floyd songs I downloaded from Kazaa ?

This is a very very sweet idea.

But... let's say we upload important files there. What assurances do we have that if DreamHost goes under, we'll get some notice before our files disappear?

None, I'm assuming?

Just curious.

Second, I think the idea is outstanding. I'm pretty stoked by it.

Third, too late to use it now, but I'm hoping all this 404 error message crap ain't real. I'll try it soon.

Fourth, if this works this will add ENORMOUS stickiness to my web hosting with DreamHost.

Fifth, how will you protect copyright holders from people uploading their legally owned content?

Thanks,

Christoph
