For the last 24 hours I was unable to get jthink.net loaded in my browser. I am not sure if it was something in the internet path between myself and the site or the site itself.

Anyway, during this time I was unable to use my version of SK. I kwpt getting an error about being unable to validate my license and for me to check my internet connection. Needless to say my internet connection was fine.

Is there anything that can be done in a situation like this to allow licensed products to continue running?
I have been trying for a week to get a musicbrainz mirror installed onto an unused laptop of mine. I have had very little success. My concept is that this laptop's sole purpose would be to mirror the musicbrainz server so that I could cut down on the time it takes SK to run my 27K library.

I have tried following multiple instruction sets including the instructions that come with the MB install package. Some work better than others but none of them get me to a local server that I can connect to.

Does anyone have an install process or any tips at all on getting a bare metal install of Musicbrainz going? It is frustrating and I see many others out there that are frustrated too.
Just an update. When I ran it this time I unchecked the "Update iTunes" box. So far it seems to be doing better. It is at 25845 songs loaded and I can hear the HD working away.

Fingers crossed.
I just updated to SK 1.20.0. I have have about 28K songs. SK freezes at about 23,200. It has done that twice in a row. I have no idea how to proceed or what files to look at to discover the issue.

What can I do to see where it is hanging up?
I am a new user of SongKong and it is really helping me get my library under control. I do have to report that SK is leaving empty directories behind. I had over 100 empty in one tree and about 20 empty in another tree.

Windows 7. Show hidden files enabled. Perhaps SK sees the desktop.ini or thumbs.db and thinks they are not empty?

I did two operations: Fix, delete dupes. Lots of folders that did not exist before I ran SK now exist (assume that they were created during the "fix" portion).

Unfortunately I downloaded and ran a tool to remove the directories.

I will pay more attention on the next set of trees. I have at least 3 more ares I need to clean up before I start combining them all into one common area.
