Re: Napster Times
- Well, the bare Napster program as such connects
to an arbitrary napster.com server determined by
their central server (as I understand it).<br><br>In
order to connect to a specific server, such as
gold.napster.com (which is what the earlier message was referring
to), you need something like Napigator, or better yet
IMHO, AudioGnome.<br><br>Napigator lets you connect to
any specific server it can find, then switches over
to Napster. This also means you can use "unofficial"
servers, of which there are many.<br><br>AudioGnome is
self-contained, so you connect and download in a single
program.<br><br>In addition, the Gnome allows you to connect to an
arbitrary number of servers (default is 32) at once, and
search them en masse.<br><br>And that's not all!
<G><br><br>Though I've only just started to experiment with it,
there is a P2P facility (called PNN) built into
AudioGnome. So far, I've downloaded using it, and it works
well! Still waiting for someone to download one of my
shares so I can see how well it works
outbound.<br><br>The interface is different. It took me a couple of
sessions to get used to it, but now there's no going back.
- As a winner of one of those disks, I too want to offer my THANKS to

Five years ago today on Oct 21, 2001, Sipseywilderness offered "OTR
Vol. 1 Free CD":
He has continued giving away a disc every week for all this time. That
is some real dedication to helping out the OTR community. I would like
to thank Sipseywilderness for all he does for those who like OTR and
especially for what he does to help the newcomers.
