So you live in Detroit Shane M. It has a great heritage for techno & house, but you must know far more than me (at my desk 10,000 miles away). Anyway - respect!
Know what, usually not. Sometimes they come as a .rar file. But for example, with the Metallica thing, I told it to put it into My Documents. When it finished, I checked it, and there were like 15 folders in there, one for each album. What happens is when you d/l the 'information header file' (.torrent) it allocates the space on your hardrive and sets up the folder/file structure before it ever downloads one byte of the actual file. So it looks right away like you just downloaded a gig of music even though its all just really 'claimed space' at the time.
Yeah, Detroit is great for techno to a point. We have the worlds largest electronic music festival (lovefest would more be strictly techno) but honestly, many clubs here don't play it like they do in the UK or eastern europe either. We get a lot of house and hiphop, whereas I LOVE trance. You can find it if you look though. In 5 years if its still like that I may try to open my own techno club. I think that would make a killing around here.
