MeFiSwap music musicexchange July 13, 2006 9:00 AM   Subscribe

Reminder: There is just one week (give or take 12 hours) to sign up for the latest go of the MeFiSwap. The more the merrier, and right now participation numbers are kind of low, perhaps because the announcement scrolled off of MeTa in less than 36 hours, so if you were wondering if it's on, yes, it's on! Get in while you can.

Is this one actually going to happen? I remember this conversation from last year, I think.

I am glad you sent the reminder, and I've registered.

Hope all works out well with the fried equipment, as well.

It's actually happening.

And thanks, rollbiz, the fried equipment is home and in fine functioning order now, which is why I was able to post the reminder with confidence.

Hot damn! I did indeed miss the previous post, so I'm glad you posted the reminder. Time to fire up the ol' burner...

Entirely missed the first time around, thanks for the reminder. Am signing up. Have the bad fortune of living in a place with spotty mail delivery, so if the CDs don't arrive I'll probably have to blame the evil local postal service rather than flaky MeFites. Ah well: You pays your money, you takes your chances.

Pssst....the "Swapping Hints"page found on the FAQ page is returning an error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/bluesilv/public_html/mefiswap/wp-content/themes/drunkey-love/404.php on line 4

I just signed up and am carefully crafting my playlist.
Looking forward to it.

I just signed up, and because I made up 8 mix CD's for my wedding two weeks ago, my lucky swap set will get two CD's each.

inigo2 - thanks for the heads up, it was a bad anchor. Bah. Fixed now -- and the registrations keep rolling in.

I'm in. About time I did this, too.

Thanks Dreama for the reminder - looking forward to what I might get (cmonkey's last swap got me some amazing stuff).

I'm in. :-)

thanks for the reminder! I missed the first announcement.

I'm in, as long as people don't mind mailing CDs to a Kenyan PO box or an APO address.

Would it be OK to have mine sent via a third party? Shipping to an APO address is about the same cost as shipping across the US.

Davehat, you can have your CDs sent to anywhere or anyone. The swap is international, so your mixes could ostensibly go to a Kenyan PO box, but anything that you arrange that you feel is reliable is fine fine, be that a third person relay or an APO address or whatever.
