I've been talking about this for years, but finally its time has come. Sorry about the false starts.
There are a lot of bootlegs on this site. The Smiths section weighs in at around 220GB and I know that's too much for some people to download.
I've rounded up all the Smiths audio and video bootlegs here and copied it to a small USB drive. Over 300 bootlegs, carefully categorised complete with ticket stubs and links to the original download location. I propose that the hard drive gets sent from person to person until it reaches everyone that wants it. You add your name to the list, I sort by country, propose the tour dates and send it on its way. For this to work, it relies on people quickly copying it to their computer and sending it to the next person quickly. I thought it would be cool if people copied any interesting files onto it as it goes plus I'll include a guest book to leave messages. It relies on honesty too, obviously. While I won't weep for the loss of a £80 disk drive, it will be a shame if the tour has to get cancelled.
Hopefully you get the idea. If you want to receive it, just let me know and state your country in the comments below. I'll let the thread run for a week, then get addresses from everyone via private message. UK, then rest-of-Europe, then the US, then beyond.
Long time listeners will remember that I set this site up to preserve recordings of The Smiths in the best possible quality. The hard drive tour is an extension of that idea.

Bon Voyage!
