400gb of live NIN recordings from over 700 sources? And how?

Do you live in a Pacific island nation, burdened by bandwidth caps? Used to be into bootlegs, but couldn't be bothered to keep track of things after Trent went all "Yeah, record whatever you want"? Or do you compulsively collect every single nine inch nails related thing you can get your mitts on? Let me tell you a little bit about The NIN Drive from Reflecting in the Chrome.

For a limited time only (because it's kind of a pain in the ass) Ryan Jonik and a handful of volunteers, who have been collecting audio archives of Nine Inch Nails performances at reflectinginthechrome.com since 2008, have compiled everything they have dug up and are offering copies of their database of archived recordings. The NIN Drive details are here, and if you're interested in getting a copy, just click over to their homepage for instructions. There's stuff on this drive that you haven't heard before, I'm fairly certain of that, and though this helps disseminate this aural history of NIN performances, chances are pretty good that you won't have another opportunity like this for a long time, if ever.

Back to our regularly scheduled peace and quiet.
