What happened to the CD exchange? January 26, 2005 9:08 AM   Subscribe

MeFi CD Mix Exchange... please let me know if this is an inappropriate place for this question. A while back there was a sign up for a MeFi CD Exchange. I haven't heard anything about it again. Any idea if this was legitimate and is still going on?

hey there spicynuts, I did delete this when it was in AskMe but it's totally cool to put it here. I would have dropped you a note to let you know, but you had no email in your profile and no obvious contact link on your [really gorgeous] website.

You have mod powers now jessamyn? Cool!

jessamyn, are you a mod here? I didn't know there were any, but I haven't been reading MeTa too much lately.

Sorry for the "I'm your new Mommy" intro, it was discussed on another MeTa thread a day or two ago. I have some edit/delete abilities and mostly use them in AskMe to keep everything happy there, since I'm such a crank about how wonderful the place is.

Congratulatons jessamyn! You are the right person for the job.

Jessamyn...thanks..once I saw it deleted I knew right away why, so no big deal.

I didn't realize I have no contact info on my profile. I'll get on that.

And thanks for the compliment on my website.

So the CD Mix exchange is still going to happen? I've got my calendar marked an all as well as I've pulled some songs.

Spicy - you do have a beautiful site!

Riffola, I love you back. I kiss you!

Jessamyn, I can't think of a better mom for all of us, actually.

In the meantime, there is also the Monkeyfilter CD Exchange (full disclosure: second link is to my subsite for the exchange) which Metafilterians are welcome to join (once you join MoFi proper). The next swap has a send date at the end of February. Here is the post announcing it from last week. Signups will be allowed through the first week in February.

Riff, you missed the part where madamjujujive suggested *you* would be a good candidate for these kind of admin/mod powers.

But then someone else mentioned that you're part of a posse.

Somehow I just can't see you giving up your evil posse ways and devoting yourself to doing good (or at least less evil). Still, you almost had a shot at fame and glory.

Dang! If I did have mod powers, you know I'd go around posting "By the power of mathowie, I have the power!"

Unfortunately, BlueSilver.Org will be offline until tomorrow or perhaps Friday morning. I'm making the switch from Movable Type to ExpressionEngine and it is taking longer than I had anticipated. Unfortunately, other obligations are preventing me from dedicating as much time to the process as I'd truly like. This really wasn't the best week to go about this. Oops.

MeFiSwap is the first thing that will be online again once I've got things going, and I'll post here when it's back up.

Thanks for your patience, folks. CMS switches are a big time, A number one pain in the buttocks and I don't plan to do this again for a very, very long time.

I hope this is seen, since it's scrolled off the front MeTa page. In any case, since my switchover is stalled in hell, I've unshuttered the MeFiSwap site for the time being. Feel free to move about the cabin, but we recommend wearing your seatbelt in case of turbulence.
