you only get viruses if you download the crappy files that are like "Horseporn here" and are 192.7kb in size.

And even if you do get a virus, Virus Scanner ftw?
#3
if you have a pretty good antivirus/spyware, you should be good to go. Ive had it for a couple months and no problems. Especially if all you're downloading is music. Most viruses are in the programs.

90% of all the music on Limewire is mislabeled. Hell, I've seen Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb" labeled as "Distant Ship on the Horizon" by Def Leppard.

Oh Lord

I remember when I was in that same situation.

At least it made you appreciate music more...
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

Limewire sucks, you search for music and you end up with 5 links saying:"Lolzza hot Child porn". Torrents are so much better.

use frostwire if you insist on a gnutella client. it doesn't come with spyware and it filters out a lot of the viruses and crap you normally find on limewire. But really unless you listen to very mainstream music your chances of finding anything good on limewire are pretty slim.

I use torrents now, I used to use Limewire. It works well if you have a GOOD anti-virus and spyware (NOT Norton). I have McAfee and it worked well for me.

But yeah, use torrents.

Torrents download depending on how many are seeding.
That's why i hate torrents.. the stuff i want. no one has heard of, therefore no one seeds.

Haha, that is truth. I found this torrent with a bunch of kick ass 90s emo that no one has ever heard of. Only one seed, so it would take like 4 days to download.
I'm the same as I was when I was six years old
And oh my god I feel so damn old

I DL a lot of obscure stuff with torrents. Of course it depends on what you are looking for but chances are whatever you're into theres a torrent community out there for it.

In addition to seeing how many seeds there are, if you are behind a router make sure you have port forwarding set up.

www.megadownload.net

It's a search engine for Rapidshare and MegaUpload links which are extremely fast compared to torrents.

Just search "BAND NAME ALBUM NAME" and bingo, your resuls turn up.

Most of the albums are in the RAR format, for which I would reccomend using www.extractnow.com to extract the archive.

Have fun fellow Pirates
