Important Communication to All Loronix’s Friends

Link original: Important Communication to All Loronix’s Friends
Publicado em: Sunday, March 30, 2008 by zecalouro

zecatypesHello, good evening! This is a very important communication to all of Loronix´s friends;

Last Thursday, all Loronix links were eliminated. It is not unusual for one or two links being occasionally removed because someone feels his / her rights have been infringed. We accept and respect that.

But the extent of the latest action makes me think of a purposeful attack, a denial of service. Based on previous experiences — fortunately, none of such depth and consequences — Loronix has always emerged strengthened and improved, with the support of our community.

The links will be gradually replaced, beginning from the newest ones, and proceeding until the oldest of them is back in order.

The replacement effort has just begun and everybody is invited to engage. Procedures are necessary to keep work organized; new features will be soon announced, along with instructions to allow anyone who feels like collaborating to participate in our effort.

My apologies for this inconvenience; you all can rest assure that lessons will be learned and we will make Loronix an even better community.



Attention! updates available at comments section.

Zeca, My heart goes out to you. I remember our discovery of each other 2 years ago. That is a lot of re-posting my friend. May I be of help?

nos ensine quais os passos a seguir. Da minha parte tenho muitos dos arquivos guardados.
Como fazer para chegar às suas mãos?
Fazer o upload para o Rapidshare? Mas se foi nele que aconteceu o problema? E não teria restrições em termos de prazos de permanência se não for um Rapidshare Premium?
Ir pra o 4share, ou um outro, teria os mesmos problemas de invasão?
Distribuí-los em vários servidores?
No momento em que tiver os procedimentos para renovar os links dos albuns, terei(emos) o maior prazer em retribuir as alegrias que tive(emos) até agora.

We must find the culprit behind this treacherous action. I will then send my cousin, Vinny, to pay him a visit and “explain” to him the error of his ways. I await your orders.

Your faithful servant

I’m glad the actions of a moron haven’t dampened your enthusiasm. Keep up the fantastic work, we all hugely appreciate it.

Your blog has really opened up my ears to something new and beautiful. I truly appreciate your efforts in sharing this wonderful music. Without you, these lost gems would never have seen the light of day. Please let us know how we can help-

Zeca, from this lesson you will come back strong. Everything in life happens for a reason.

I am a musician.
You have my favorite Brasilian Blogspot on the internet.
You have inspired me to start my own.

Viva a musica Brasileira e tambem a musica Cubana!

Aguardo instruções, Mestre Zeca. Qualquer coisa para manter o Loronix.

Grande abraço

I can´t imagine what some people think when do things like that. There are no words to describe it. I still have lots of Loronix files and it will be a pleasure to help.


grande abraço

That’s damn weird, what motive could someone have for that kind of terrorism? I’m glad to see you aren’t disheartened, good luck in the future!

meu amigo,
sinto muito por este transtorno enorme. É lamentável que haja espíritos de porco capazes de destruir o trabalho alheio apenas pelo gosto de fazer o mal feito.
Sei que não há muito o que possamos fazer, mas se houver, basta dizer. Há um monte de amigos e admiradores aqui, prontos a oferecer a ajuda possível.
Grande abraço, meus votos de que você não desanime e tenha coragem pra esta tarefa enorme.

Marisol on Monday, 31 March, 2008
From Chile, where I live, I could not even dream about getting any of the wonderful records you have been sharing. It’s not a matter of copyright, but simple and plain access. My biggest support to you.

Tenho são poucos os arquivos que tenho. Porém estão ao seu dispor.
É só mandar os passos.

Please accept my sympathy for this unfortunate occurrence. Let me know if I can help; I will do whatever I can to restore Loronix!
zecalouro on Tuesday, 01 April, 2008
Thanks, Thanks, Thanks all the warm and sincere statements of love for the music from Brazil and Loronix. I use to think always in a positive manner and I think it is good that such events occur, they are useful to show the real dimension of what Loronix is. If Loronix is threatened, I’m not the only hurt; we are all hurt.

I would have time to respond individually all questions and request to engage the reconstruction, but time has turned a rare article. I would like to summarize in little pieces everything I read across this post and Loronix. Let’s see.

1) I have 95% of the files deleted. This is not an issue and most of the files are already hosted elsewhere.

2) The critical path on the reconstruction is not the uploads, but the process of opening each post and place the new links there. The links are not being placed directly; there are some protections to mitigate the risk of a new attack. Thanks God zecalouro is primarily an IT guy!

3) The reconstruction is made by weeks. I spend 2 hours to fix a week and I cannot make two or three weeks per day, only one. I’m trying to reduce this time and steps needed to fix a week. When I reach the optimal point it will be the time to engage our taskforce, it is very important to deliver easy and failure proof tasks to everybody.

4) Loronix Find It is now an issue, driving friends to the old posts. I’ve been thinking about clear Find It and update the database as the reconstruction advances, but it is another time consuming task. What do you think about this? Find It is a PHP script over a mySQL database. If someone is skilled on mySQL clients to make data entry, please let me know.

5) Not everything was deleted, for my surprise, the whole 48Hours of Tom Jobim tribute is working and some specific weeks were not affected as well.

6) The following weeks are set to go, This week, Mar 23 week, Mar 16 week, Mar 09 week, Mar 02 week, Feb 24 week, Feb 10 week and Feb 03 week … and growing!

7) How to identify a fixed week? Easy, I took the decision to convert all covers to the new deluxe XXX-large size, if you see a week with large covers, it is already updated.

Well, thanks once again for the fantastic response, now I will see what are the new additions, the show must go on.

Cheers, zeca
zecalouro on Tuesday, 01 April, 2008
Hello, I’m back, forgot an important point.

8) Videos are back! New donations made viable the acquisition of a new hosting to play our videos. They are being copied and will be gradually ready to us.

These attacks are becoming quite a nuisance and more widespread and frequent on blogs, it seems. Anyway, best of luck with the future, I am quite new to your blog but I remember you were active on demonoid a while back when it was consistent too, really appreciate your work.

I red all the comments that show how great this site is.
I agree with Zeca, i think this is an attack against the site.
Go on my friend :respect:
Filipe on Tuesday, 01 April, 2008
Meus sinceros pesares pelo o ocorrido, não da para acreditar que alguma pessoa nesse mundo se deu o trabalho de tentar destruir um trabalho tão honesto e bonito quanto o seu.

Saudações de um grande fã.

Hi Zeca, I missed a few days on the site and was a little alarmed to read about this. Good luck with the recovery and keep up the positive work and attitude.

Best wishes from Breuklein.

Um atentado contra a divulgação da cultura brasileira!!!
Querem nos obrigar a ouvir apenas AXÉ e BREGANEJO!!!
Aguardo instruções do amigo Zeca para contribuir para a reorganização deste blog que é pesquisa diária e obrigatória para lazer e aquisição de conhecimento.
Do amigo Paulo Ricardo (ibacape)

Zeca, my informatic resources are small but i have TIME and a huge desire to help. So, count on me for the reconstruction effort, if you need help with typing. Just let me know.

All’amico Zeca, da Gabriele Brunini (Venezia, Italia).

Non ho capito perfettamente cosa è accaduto a Lornix, se non que i link sono stati cancellati…
Comprendo che ora il tuo lavoro per sistemare tutto sarà molto pesante, e non posso aiutarti che con la mia solidarietà e il mio affetto!
Spero presto di potere riprendere a mandarti delle curiose musiche italiane che hanno collegamento con la musica brasiliana.
Viva a MPB!
Z. on Thursday, 03 April, 2008
I have been collecting large quantities of your records as time goes by and added some of the stuff that I have on my own. Please feel free to reach me if something got lost in the process. As a blog owner like you, I feel your pain. You do an extraordinary work.

Dear Zeca,

Only now… I read about this attack against the blog! Very sad for all of us, but…

As “aluvsupreme” said…
“Good luck with the recovery and keep up the positive work and attitude”.

Grande e generoso irmão, diga no que eu posso te ajudar???

Pois somente agora vi esse teu recado, estou com aqueles problemas de junta como tu sabes, mas disposto a colaborar sempre.


Theo on Monday, 07 April, 2008
that’s ugly. I am also willing to help, if you need it and let me know how.

Thank you for your personal commitment, we all enjoy its fruits.

Zeca, e’ lamentável o ocorrido, mas como você mesmo diz, o Louronix sairá desta fortalecido e ainda melhor. Parece coisa de alguém que deseja impedir a distribuição livre de músicas pela Web… Para cima e avante!
Abraçoes amazônicos, Franz
NTE Belém on Friday, 11 April, 2008
Caro Zeca, lamentao muito o ocorrido. Meus arquivos estao ao seu dispor. Diga como fazer para ajudar. Para frente e avante, Loronix!
De Belem do Pará vai um abraço amazônico para todos, Franz
