Where were you the day Audiogalaxy was shot?

I was at work, I browsed the site as usual to find everything was copyrighted.

It ranks as one of the saddest days of my life.

Later that day I was using Kazaa, what a complete load of bollox.

LOL!!! If I was up Mount Everest I'd have thrown myself off. It was difficult enough walking home over the longbridge (without spontaneously plunging into the river).

SoulSeek's different.

Not a whiff of spyware at all. Adaware has decreed so....

Yet it does remain a bloody pain to get a single album downloaded if that's all you're after at the moment.

Maybe god doesn't want you to have said album? Could it be destiny?? Nope - just sod's law.

Soulseek's been good to me this week. I haven't got everything on the list, but enough to satisfy my materialistic greed.

I can get almost everything I want using kazaa lite.
Maybe you're one of those who get scratchy mp3 files and are mad because of it?

SoulSeek does the job for me. Everytime that I want something, I just pop it open and find what I need.

But Audioglaxy.. I had just gotten home from school and got on and found the site screwed.. I panicked, man.

audiogalaxy went down? theres still mp3.com...though i heard the RIAA bought it so you might want to avoid that...I used to use K++ but its getting harder and herder to find decent stuff on it. DC++ all the way...

EDIT: MP3.com is down and will soon go legit...

mp3.com always was legit. All the tunes on it were there because the bands wanted them there.

I respect your judgement marvin, but I can't get on with emule/donkey... Perhaps it didn't like my face. I received about 0.3kb of stuff in a whole afternoon (about 30 .tmp files) - that's not gonna satisfy my needs.

Now, can anyone tell me what is Audiogalaxi?

All pop music is good music but all good music isn't pop music
Wanna know more about pop music or my boy-bands?

Shareaza, man

You know it makes sense!



http://www.shareaza.com

Gnutella 1&2 eDonkey and BitTorrent, completely sh!teware free!

(until all the mugs on there configure it to strangle their upload bandwidth, whereupon those who aren't like that sort, me for instance, get leeched on bigtime )

Triton4, now there is someone I can agree with.
And also Bittorrent is good to me. I have got a lot of awsome live shows from it.

In the very beginning, I believe it was. But for a very long while, tt was a way for independent bands to get their stuff online and heard. CNet was the one who came along and crushed it.
