New site info

10 January 2011 1,017 views No Comment

This new web site is launching on 1-11-11 along with the announcement of 9 new releases. Coding this site is far above my level of expertise and I hope the glitches are few. I’ve done what I could to test for them, but they’re bound to come up. I hope there are no challenges in the order process, but please bare with me in such a case.

Here are a few mechanical details of note…

Shipping: there is a total order shipping fee of $2 for US, $4 for the rest of North America, and $6 elsewhere in the World. Since most CDs and cassettes are $1 to ship in North America and $2 to ship Worldwide, this makes the shipping $3 for the first item and $1 each additional in the U.S.; $5 for the first item and $1 each additional in Canada and Mexico; and $8 for the first item and $2 each additional worldwide. This means the shipping costs haven’t changed, but the process is more streamlined, allowing adjustments for LPs, oversized and heavier items.

Cabal integration: Cabal and Cathartic Process will become fully integrated on this site, making for a streamlined experience. As soon as the site is confirmed to be bug free, the old sites will be deleted.

I’m glad to be using a blog format that will allow for commenting and other interaction. I hope people will take advantage of it. I miss the days of mailorder, both as a customer and as someone who releases and distributes records. The interaction has seemed to decrease with the increase in convenience. It makes such a rewarding and vibrant part of doing these things fall by the wayside. I don’t expect the technology that has helped create the problem to create the solution – it has to come from a concerted effort from the people to work around the impediments the technology has created. That means we have to make an effort. I hope you will.

Cheers,

Ben
