Limewire's now being a douchebox

    I used to use Morpheus, and then my computer exploded.

    If you're going to use a P2P network like the one in the OP, may I suggest using Frostwire instead? It's soooo much better.

    Agree with all of the above posters on using Acquisition if you own a Mac. I also recently bought a MacBook and its much better than anything I ever used in Windows. Other than, of course, the original free Napster.

    With Limewire, same thing happened to me where I kept getting re-routed to an alternate site (I have a MAC). I just went to the limewire website and downloaded the newest edition. It's worked ever since, though I've noticed if my search results in too many hits, it stalls when I try to download. Not sure if that's a download flaw or just my laptop.

    Bearshare already settled with the RIAA and I've heard nothing good about it since.

    Limewire will end up the same way.

    I had no problem on Limewire today when I downloaded a Beatles song I had had pimped to me.

    Couple weeks later update: Limewire still doesn't work for me, even after upgrading the software. I've also tried using eMule and nothing seems to download on it -- and I checked the port settings to make sure the ports were open, etc.

    I went through my Beatles phase in college. I have every song on my iPod... Can't imagine discovering the Beatles now. So I'm curious, what was the song?

    Careful, the feds have busted people for less than this.

    If you've got a Mac, peep a program called Drumbeat. I'm not sure if it's still around. I used to use a free trial of it, and the 30 days never ticked down so it wasn't really like a trial. It was better than Limewire ever has been, even though that's what I use now on my laptop and desktop.

    eMule still works dandy.
