Is there some sort of trick to this? ... I put in
ftp://midnightoil.dyndns.org into my browser and it takes me nowhere.  Any
hep appreciated.

> Hey all!
> Three shows from last May (Seattle 5/10, Vancouver 5/12, Calgary 5/14)
> have been uploaded as MP3s to the FTP server at midnightoil.dyndns.org
> (user "midnight", password "oil").  They're in the uploads/2002shows
> directory, and each is available in both 160kbps and 320kbps so folks
> can choose audio quality vs. download speed.
> All were recorded using a Sony minidisc machine with Coresounds mikes,
> if I recall.  Seattle was recorded from the frontish row of the balcony;
> Vancouver and Calgary from the center floor a few rows from the front.
> Calgary has the best sound;  Vancouver would be equal except for the

> The only audible glitch in any of these files is in Mosquito March from
> Vancouver; at 2:47.3 there's a 0.15s dropout that I'm not sure what
