AllOfMP3’s OK, for now.

Filed under: Music — Hogg @ 1:08 pm

Update: Maybe that sigh was premature. When attempting to order music, I was greeted with a message that says, “Ordering is temporarily not available.” Crap.

And a sigh of relief fell over the masses.

After worries that AllOfMP3 was down for the count when a “server maintenance” message came up on their home page, the site is back up and running.

Techcrunch fears that the RIAA and pressures from Moscow will force the best music downloading site ever to shut down.

Pressure on Moscow to close the site has been intense and is increasing. In recent comments, Russian President Putin stated that they would do more to fight copyright infringement in order to gain admission to the WTO.

While it may be up and running for now, I am not so sure it will stay that way, so I am going to do all the downloading I can right now, while I’m still able to.

  1. Dang.
    Must have missed that brief window of opportunity. Down again as of 9:00 AM EST. Glad I only have $1.15 credit left there…

  2. Hhmm, I just tried to open an account. The site is up and running, but it won’t allow me to add any money to my account.

  3. I can’t get my alltunes program to run – I’ve got about $20 dollars credit (or should that be ‘had’). It was just too good to be true…

  4. I’m pretty bummed too. I’m fixing to lose about nine bucks. Nine bucks is nine bucks!

  5. As of 1:00 AM ET on May 18, 2006, when attempting to order the following message appears on allofmp3.com
    “The site is undergoing some technical restructuring.
    We work hard to resume the service. We expect to put back all the functions shortly.
    Please, accept our appologies for this ongoing disruption.”
