Hello everyone, Coldbird here.
As you know I’ve always tried providing you guys some interesting (& freely available) services on coldbird.net.
Those range from PRO(metheus) Online, our PSP & PPSSPP online gaming server, to the revived .hack//frägment PS2 online gaming server & translation, to several other projects related to hacking, networking and other cool things.
As my finances aren’t the best, I always tried to find the right balance in providing content and monetization without influencing your (the user’s) experience in a negative way too much.
Up until now, this server and all its services were more or less funded by piggybacking on our success with PRO CFW, and it’s official download mirrors (linkbucks revenue). While this didn’t fully cover the costs, it brought them down low enough so that they didn’t pose too much of a challenge for me to fund with my own money.
As you guys might have guessed, with the growing age of the PSP, those download counts went further and further down, resulting in less revenue to cover the server hosting costs.
In hopes of filling this monetary gap, bringing coldbird.net back to its previous level of self-funding efficiency, I present to you our new Sound Nexus service.
It’s a music search engine, providing you direct links to high quality 320kbit/s MP3 streams of pretty much everything you can think of.
The page is a work in progress, and it’s obvious that me and my friend aren’t exactly webdesign professionals.
Should you wish to provide your help in making the page more attractive to look at, or have ideas of what to add, feel free to leave your suggestions and / or contact information in the comments.
