    Maybe it was a tune or a great screensaver or some free shareware to manage some stuff for you, I'm curious.

    My son and I just joined the over 4 million seti@home.com users and in the process from the Canadian site learned that Kazaa is corrupted and Kazaalite.com is clean.

    Neat stuff out there. What was your last down load?

    Well, I use IMesh. It's not as big, but I can't use Kazaa (something on my computer went funky, and it won't let me use it, or Morpheus anymore...:confused: )

    Last thing I downloaded? D&D 3e "Quintessential Fighter" manual.
  5. My most recent download was LindowsOS 3 (click here), it's a Linux-based OS with the simplicity of Windows. Very user friendly and suitable for the standard user. More information available on LindowsOS Site.

    Why i downloaded it? I like to testdrive new OS alternatives. Im only 19, but i have been using computers since i was 4 years, yep! my father was a real geek when i was a kid, now, it's just an averange human being. My PC has multiboot with different OS, like RedHat 8, WindowsXP SP1 and FreeBSD 4.5. This one it's a new one to my list.

    sounds to me like maybe kazaalite is corrupted and they are just trying to lure u into using it instead of kazaa. :eek: :shrugs:

    no kazaa IS full of junk. trust me - if you have it on your computer, uninstall it and go get kazaa lite.

    i work at the university of wisconsin - madison help desk, so you can imagine that we have a lot of file sharing program users we have to support. and almost every single instance of people not being able to connect to the internet or computer crashing at odd times is due to kazaa.

    get rid of it!!!

    anyways - last thing i downloaded was....hmm....

    either a keygen for opera 7 (i'm not gonna pay for the beta, but i'm surely going to buy it when it's released if they fix everything)

    or amplitube - a vsti amp/effect simulation plugin. and it didn't work.

    i try not to download too much stuff though. its stealing just like downloading music is stealing. (even worse, some of these programs cost hundreds of dollars!)

  9. Well I don't know if it counts but I spent the last three days going through every single picture on www.steakandcheese.com.

    The last thing I actually downloaded that wasn't just a picture was the song "Only You" by the Flying Pickets.
