The last computer reload of Windows must have been over a year ago. I had never bothered since with a new program for downloading music. I lost interest with music after I accidentally deleted a heap of music from my hard drive. It was all in terrible mess anyway.
Then I heard a track that I just had to have. I might stick it up next week.
Right, I used to use Kazaa Light and WinMX for music. Both were horrid to use and I always had to turn the firewall off. I mustn't had given them permission originally and they never asked again. Well, Kazaa Light would not work. I don't know why. I tried the full flight Kazza and boy did that set off some fireworks, virus checker did not like it, nor did the spyware program or the ad blocking program. It was all giving me a headache. Forget about it.
But a week later I thought of the song again. Let me have a look on the net and see what modern young people are using to steal music. WinMX is still around and very popular in Japan. I am not in Japan and I never liked it much.
I have heard of this Gnutella. I thought it was something ghastly from overseas that you spread on bread. I still don't know what it is, but you can access Gnutella music with a program called Limewire. I downloaded a copy but it would not install. Idiot, that is the Mac one. I want the one for the evil operating system. Ok, done. Limewire is brilliant compared to what I had used. It is so simple and easy and everything I want seems to be out there.
Now I must put in a leave request at work so that I can download heaps of music and have them sensibly sorted and burnt onto cds that do not have a Blondie track, followed by Madame Butterfly, followed by Noel Coward, followed by T Rex.
I thought I would like to hear Sk_yhook_s Ly_gon St Li_mbo but instead of it playing as a music file, the pc asked me if I wanted to run this .exe file. I don't think so! Then another track I downloaded was also an .exe file. Music never used to come as an .exe file, does it now? How would you know if it was music or something bad anyway? I think I have told Limewire to block .exe files in the future.
Ah, there is another track from my youth. Smu_t Good fun song.
The singer is Red Symons (pictured), now an almost respectable ABC radio presenter, the one Jayne spoke to a couple of weeks ago. He hasn't aged too badly, but he was quite pretty in the clip.
The deliciously smooth and bare topped singer Shirley Strachan, was killed in a helicopter crash.
So enjoy a bit of S-mut
