    Revolutionary shit. I would sit there for hours and hours waiting for stuff to download. Got lots of viruses as well.
    But those were good times

    Dave, do you miss the days of listening to shows like Little Orphan Annie in your radio?

    I'm 47 years old, I have never heard of that show in my life.

    What's it like getting arrested?

    Yes, though I never got a virus. In a very odd choice, I think the first song I borrowed was Adam's Song by Blink-182. Got a bunch of wrestling theme songs/entrance music too. Then a few oldies (60's stuff). Shortly thereafter I borrowed many songs of many varieties.

    I've been staying at a lot of hotels lately. I'm using torrents like crazy. Those hotels are probably getting threatening letters by the dozens.

    I 'didnt get' Napster at it's peak. I had a friend in the dorms who was a huge Napster person. He thought he was Johnny Appleseed passing around burnt copies of Dashboard Confessional to anyone who asked (and others who didn't).

    That sucks. Glad I have never been in that position.

    Do you tell your kids about it?
