So long China

Recently I finally got off my ass and wrote a thingmabob to track MP3 downloads. Here is the fallout: China, you are cut off.

Seriously, I've never to my knowledge received a single nice email from anyone in China about my music or sold a CD, yet you guys make up like 60% of my bandwidth usage via sites like QQ and Baidu and Yahoo China Music.

I mean maybe if I felt like I was huge with this silent mass of Chinese I'd just roll with it, see where it takes me, but the fact of the matter is that every MP3 on my server gets hammered 24/7 by the same blocks of IPs, over and over again. Is it just their haywire search bots? Is it proxy requests from very shy Chinese Brad Sucks fans? I don't know!

So for now you're blocked, go sit in the corner and think about what you've done.
