Zombieguide Media Vault Returns from the Grave
8:02 PM EST  » site update
As you know, weeks ago, we were slapped with some major bandwidth bills (mostly due to media) and so we had to remove almost all of our media. Well, we're happy to report that we've found a solution. From now on, most new media will be available for a short time, for example, in MP3 format. Afterwards, it will be converted to Real Player format and placed in the Media Vault, where it will take up much less needed space (and on a free Tripod server). So visit the new vault, where the full versions of Watercircle, Anything, and the London tracks are available once again! Major thanks to Saeed Ali for all his help with the new section!
