    You have to remember that you have to be a powerful female executive that aggravates the male species to be brought to justice. Just ask Martha Stewart.

    I used to use Kazaa, but found that lots of times the songs downloaded badly and sounded like static. Now i just buy legit, gotta show some luv for your fav bands somehow...

    I always buy the artists I like. Sometimes downloading mp3's turned me on to them and I bought their CD'S after. Evanescence is a good example.

    I used to use Napster. Then they shut down and I went to Morpheus. Then that shut down and I went to Kazaa.

    Then a ton of people got sued and I moved to iTunes.

    I don't mind paying for songs, but I'm sick of buying a complete CD for a single song.

    I've used probably every single decent filesharing program out there (Started back when early gnu versions were released), and while the enhanced version of Kazaa has the most features, I'd have to say my personal favorite is WinMX. THere can be long lines at times(You can always talk to the person about bumping), but it's been the most solid program. You can not only find just about anything you can think of(gbusters.mid? :p), but also successfully complete the download more than any other program.

    There is a new program which I downloaded a little while ago, but it's about as easy to config as sysreset, so I'd rather stick with the extrmely user-friendly format of MX =)

    I like to download new music from the Internet.
    I usually download it from www.delit.net and www.audiofind.ru servers. It's FREE!! I recommend!

    You can Pass any type file on a Newsgroup, what about that issue? I use Morpheus ocassionally, but it's like Nyxan was saying it's mostly to find an old song that's not posted on the net. I pretty much find .mp3's on these sites (ie. Morpheus) to learn the song on my guitar, then I try to find the Midi file for it or already have It, so I can run it through my keyboards and drum machine and Jam to It. Rock On..........
