Do any of you guys know a website where you can get free downloads? I used Kazaa a couple of times but am not very pleased with it. Any help is appreciated.

Don't give in to piracy. :Pirate: There's plenty of legal ways to obtain your songs.

I like to own albums, not songs on my computer.
There are 2 main reasons I download:
1. To preview an album before I decide if I want to actually spend my hard earned money and buy it. This has saved me tons of money on crappy albums that have only 1 or 2 decent tracks.
2. Live music or music that is not available for purchase anywhere.

I've used and have been really pleased with WinMX and I've also used Limewire but it's not as good as WinMX IMO.

You don't have to justify anythin' to me, Rocketboy. I understand where you are coming from. I just don't get those who use the file share programs to get large music/movie libraries without spending money. But I won't turn this thread into a debate on these ethics.

Maybe in the Rancor Pit? :evil:

Pay no mind to JBFF. He's a Metallica fan and because of that, Lars Ulrich has brainwashed him into thinking DL random tunes is bad. Poor Poor, JBFF. :crazed:

Ares lite works very well and Direct Connect (DC++) is awesome too. It was the bomb here at OU for a few years and still is. I think JBFF can comment on DC++ and OSU. ;)

DC ++ and OSU? No, I think my beef came from kazaa. Not so much a copyright issue, as it was "abusing the bandwidth" and "a security issue."

Jack***es at the OIT, I tell ya! :crazed:

Like I said, I don't care about the random download thing. But I think we all know some people who really abuse these things to get 1000+ mp3's that can easily be purchased. I say, damn that's got to stop!

I mean, I got 200 some odd DVD's I want to own, but I'm not out there using bit torrent to get dvd rips.

Understood, but I also wanted to clarify my stand on it, and not start a debate or anything.

Try the BitTorrent sites, they are the new wave of downloading and it is nothing like Kazaa or Napster. (oh wow, didn't realize you mentioned it JBFF):D
http://bittorrent.com/

What you do after you download the software you look for the media on websites in a search engine that are torrent sites. I missed half of Enterprise:Storm Front II so I went on GOOGLE typed in ENTERPRISE STORM FRONT 2 TORRENT. And came up with this site.
http://torrent.youceff.com/
Or you can try this Russian website which the songs are like 2 cents each and they have full licencsed rights to them. You pay through paypal.
