View Full Version : what is up with napster these days?
i don't really like kazaa too much.....and napster seems like it doesnt stay connected.
in other news, mojo is looking for some stuff by angelfish, and is getting crappy download speeds on kazaa. anyone have another source? like....an ftp site?

I get good results on Limewire (Gnutella), not that I support any of that stuff....
...it's BAD, don't do it!

audiogalaxy is great....its just like the old scour exchange if anyone remembers that....ahhh the days of ftps, scour exchange 2.0, winamp 1.x, with my 33.6 modem, and my 233 Mhz computer...wow that was like what 3 years ago?
AudioGalaxy is great if you want to find soem really rare songs, but it totally SUCKS that you can't stop some people from uploading. I would recommend Morpheus, that is what I use. You can get it at musiccity.com. It shares movies, music, software, pictures. So it's a lot more robust. I can find any song I want on it too.

Yep.. AudioGalaxy is all I use nowadays. I have never not found a song yet. If you don't want people to download from you simply have no files in your shared directory.

ahh Scour was the best. They were one of the first to jump on the mp3 distrobution bandwagon. If you ask me Napster was too user-friendly for its own good. If they just made it a bit harder to use it would still be around today.
i have audiogalaxy at work...and oddly enough, even recommended it here. i guess i was just lazy and wanted someone to say that they had them (angelfish) on their ftp server. sorry :(
anyhow...i got the goods. i dunno if i am being stupid here...but i actually like the stuff (angelfish) a lot. maybe it's just the withdrawals from lack of new stuff from garbage...but i think it's excellent material.

I dunno i use imesh and gnucleus

Another vote for LimeWire. It's a 100% java client and you can control the uploads. Napster is and was a joke. By the way the FTP scene is still alive and kicking (my Dreamcast wouldnt have been half as much without it).
limewire....coo. i should be able to use it on my linux box then. thanks for the tip. i'll try it right now....er....i'm at work, so i hypothetically would try it now.....i will try it when i get home ;)

I've been using Aimster. Works just as good as napster did.

NAPSTER IN HAITUS DURING 'CHANGES'
The "love it or hate it" on-line music swapping service
Napster is "off the air" for a while during a retooling by
managers. The action comes in the wake of court cases and
charges of copyright infringement. Published reports
indicate that Napster is changing itself into a copyright
observing pay-for-use service. The main group hit by the
company's decision to play by the rules is college students,
among Napster's biggest fans.
