(1,000,000,000,000,000 bytes)
Or about 1 Million shows.
Currently 400megabits/sec of outbound bandwidth.

In the next couple of weeks:
Adding some Grateful Dead concerts because their policy allows
non-commercial hosting.
Converting most of the concerts to mp3/ogg and full concert zip files

Longer term wish list:
Broaden the collection into lots of different types of music
Internet Radio interface
Improved website by searching, speed, browsing
