hate the kazaa
Posted by MrSmiley [send private reply] at May 08, 2003, 08:08:56 PM ok...i have to be the dumbass who says this especially (i cant spell that im going to hell i should stress the word dumbass)on a programming server, and here im going to be hipocritical for you i use kazaa to get stuff i need. but what im saying is we get a group of ppl who hates kazaa that have great hacking skills and litterally bring it down and make it byte the dust (i love queen), but anyways get rid of this post if you like or ignore it but soon enought there isnt going to be new music bands anymore because it.
Posted by ItinitI [send private reply] at May 08, 2003, 08:50:31 PM Why the heck do you want to kill KaZaA?! You just admitted you use it to get stuff you need, I would say nearly everyone on this BBS has used it at one time or another [for legitamit or otherwise purposes].
Believe me, there will be more bands. KaZaA might screw the recording studios [and lets hope they do...], but there will always be muscians. IF the muscians aren't willing to give back to their fans who put them where they are a bit, I say screw them too. Besides, Jobs has come out with a very nice system that I think will work well.
Posted by gian [send private reply] at May 09, 2003, 03:37:17 AM There's no good reason to damage other people's property. By "making Kazaa byte the dust", you are doing the same thing as if you threw a brick through somebody's window. It's unnecessary and silly.
Posted by RedX [send private reply] at May 09, 2003, 06:39:56 AM MrSmiley, do you happen to be the mytical RIAA fan? Bringing down Kazaa is one of their wet dreams.
Beside cracking does horrible things to your karma.
Posted by MrSmiley [send private reply] at May 09, 2003, 07:51:13 AM hey i wanted to see peoples responces thats all i was j/k... i expected more and a lot of ppl to hate me.
Posted by RedX [send private reply] at May 09, 2003, 09:17:12 AM Why would we hate you? Laugh at you, perhaps. But hate? no. Hate is bad for karma.

I haven't used KaZaa. I use Morpheus instead for music. Right now I play all my music from iTunes but the iTunes music store is really crappy.
Posted by ItinitI [send private reply] at May 11, 2003, 03:24:15 PM It is?! Previously, I had heard all good things about it.
Posted by ken [send private reply] at May 11, 2003, 08:10:09 PM From Mac users right? ;)
I guess the looks are pretty good. Sales are going fine but alot of the things I've searched they don't have or they only have part of a CD.
And I would rather jog over to 711 to buy a $1.00 Oh Henry or Snikers Candy Bar than pay for a song over the internet that I could easily get free, though I don't anymore since I rarely listen to music compared to audiophiles. Their is a good amount of load time too (everywhere you click), but I'm using Broadband so it's pretty quick. I just feel sorry for Phoneline connections.
It debuted the same time around as their iPod right? Believe it or not, alot of Apple users aren't impressed by the new iPods either because they expected more. I expected more from the store too.
Posted by stilldo [send private reply] at May 12, 2003, 12:44:01 AM i have a phoneline, but its not too bad... just talk to my brother, who only has 33.6 cuz telstra (his phoneline provider) phucked up his line, so he gets noise. hes getting broadband as a result.
dont use iTunes for music. use something free that searches servers, like acquisition. i could name a few, but they dont search many servers, just a few thousand. oh well.
oh yeah, iTunes The Player is good, though. i use it exclusively. just dont use their library.
Posted by unknown_lamer [send private reply] at May 13, 2003, 03:41:38 PM Why do I get the feeling that I'm the only one around here that pays for his music...(I'm up to 63 albums and four singles right now, getting a few more soon)
I'm going to be getting a 200GB hard drive soon and will re-rip my music as Ogg Flac files. I love hard drives only being $1 a GB. I can remember back when I only had five cds and I couldn't fit all of them as mp3s on my hard drive, or even back before it was realistic at all for me to play music on my machine (ah, that good old Powermac 7100/66 with its 250MB hard drive). And now I'm going to be storing my music lossesly!
But anyway, I think I'd pay for music online if I could get it in something like Ogg Flac. This way I could grab a few tracks from an album to see how it sounded (e.g. if it was from an artist I hadn't had a chance to hear yet). It would be nice if I could get a discount on purchasing the full album (in physical form) if I paid for electronic versions of some of the tracks (since all they cost are a little bit of bandwidth and disk space). Then I would pay for lossy versions.
Posted by mop [send private reply] at May 13, 2003, 07:17:42 PM My whole music collection is CDs that I (or another family member) owns that I've ripped onto my computer in 128kb/s ogg files. Well, okay, 2-3 of my albums I took out from the library and ripped.
I have downloaded music in the past, and I think it really helped the recording industry because I found which music I liked and bought it.
Posted by unknown_lamer [send private reply] at May 13, 2003, 08:11:21 PM Yes. At least one friend has told me "go and download these songs by this artist" and as a result I now own a few of their albums (or all of them because I'm a bit obsessive at times). Of course, I could have done the same thing by just borrowing the album or listening to it with them. E.g. A guy I work with, Ross, came by Quiznos yesterday and played some Death By Stereo for me so I think I may purchase some of their work.
Posted by ItinitI [send private reply] at May 13, 2003, 10:41:30 PM lol...the recording study could just go back to LPs...that would probly be one of the best anti-piracy techniques [i.e., how do you rip an LP?! there is some way to get it digitized, btu still. LOL, then companies come out with portable LP players the size of a pizza box. :P ]. (^_^)
Posted by CViper [send private reply] at May 14, 2003, 05:54:21 AM Ripping a LP? You just record the music by patching the output from the LP player into your computer..
Posted by unknown_lamer [send private reply] at May 14, 2003, 09:57:29 AM The united record press lists not being able to easily rip records as a reason to use them.
Posted by CodeRed [send private reply] at May 15, 2003, 12:43:53 AM I love kazaa, where else would I get episodes of Cowboy Beebop, Golden Boy, Hellsing, and all the other quality animes that I love so dearly?
not to mention porno, gigs and gigs of porno
Posted by stilldo [send private reply] at May 15, 2003, 12:49:50 AM my brother has 3 gig of pronno.
he also has 35 gigs of mp3s, which equates to three weeks of music (assuming sleep is necessary)
