I started sharing files back when Napster first started.
I had over 12,000 files at one time and after switching from Windows 98 SE to Windows ME(what a mistake that one was! and having to reinstall my O.S. I lost everything.............well some of the blame goes to me for bad back-up habits.(I still blame Bill for that piece of shi* O.S. Windows ME.)
I however use Windows XP and Linux on another partition(that's another story).
I love XP as far as Windows O.S. ,I haven't had a bit of a problem with XP after running it since it came out.
I was set about getting my collection back to it's old self(size)
When it hit me about how small my mindset was.
I spent lot's of hours dl into the late of night....any and everything.
I had a huge collection......but what did it all mean to me?
I enjoyed the hours on the net searching and finding this file ,this one song I just had to have.
I t all most become an obsession.
Now I realise how importain the music(or whatever the file) is.
I am going to dl like always but It's just not that consuming for me to have this gigantic collection of mish-mash this and that.
I am going to slow down and enjoy the music for a change.
I mean how many of us have songs on our HD that we haven't even listened to?
I think it's time to stop counting post(so to speak) and dl at a frantic pace and enjoy the music.
That's what I enjoy about this site ,there's not the snobbery and ego's about file sharing as on others(well a few people...not mentioning names)
