A GREAT source for programs and music etc.

Hi friends
Just thought I would share an url where I have found almost every program or music CD I have ever wanted :D
I am sure many of us old timers already know of it - the noobies might gain something though.
As a word of caution - the site does contain a lot of files which are actually porn, however you can right click on the progress bar (when it changes colour to blue) and check under the "details" tab, if it is the correct or bogus file :wink: - you will soon see :lol:
Most of the audio CDs are zipped up as .rar files - download Winrar and crack code from the site and they you have it.
enjoy

No version for Mac? But will check on my kitchen pc though...
Using Limewire, but don't download much. Miss those Napster days, so perhaps I should check it out.

thanks bajaman

Hi Modman - what, no PC :lol: :lol: :lol:
Even a shitty old 386 or 486 wll allow you to use emule :wink:
I have a friend who uses a Mac - but he is on big money, so actually BUYS CDs :lol:
Napster was great, but emule is much better in my humble opinion - what would you like :?:
Cheers

to check emails and recipes while cooking!
to do downloads and play music

mac for recording music being online while being virus free

yeah will install e-mule and have a look, but don't don't like these little internet add-ons that emule and others use. might be spyware...

http://www.warez-bb.org
but it'll make you want a rapidshare account however,
when using a peer to peer sharing software application you upload at the same time as downloading which is when the movie and record companies go after you,
emule is great tho it was my choice till I found warez-bb
might edit this and delete the link after a few days, just in case it causes trouble with the IP police, enjoy

Demonoid has a Mac section, complete with sub-sections, ad quite a lot of Mac software!
BTW, I'm a strict Mac user :mrgreen:

Just get a good Torrent program for Mac (I use one called Transmission), and away you go!

If you understand/know how to use torrent's, IMHO it's 1000% better and safer than P2P software like Limewire or anything else...

Just did a quick search and after a quick browse this one seems pretty good :

http://www.nowplayinglyrics.com/torrents.html

One tip though is to view the files inside the torrent before you download it, just to make sure you can open the filetypes and what files are there etc, this can be done any almost every torrent site :)

Also, be sure to check comments on a torrent to see if people are having trouble or anything 8)

Hope it goes well :)

There are trackers far more private than demonoid, if you have the right friends. However, they also tend to have extremely strict rules for invitations.

everything I've wanted to find lately I've found posted on blogspot. there is so much free music linked to filsharing sites it's ridiculous- much of which is quite rare. a quick google search can usually get me there, and I don't need to mess with any outside programs. I find this truly the easiest possible way to go these days.
