OiNK discussion - aftermath and alternatives

As I'm sure plenty of you know, esteemed private tracker oink.cd got shut down last week. I'm still smarting from the loss, but there may be light at the end of the tunnel yet.

How many OiNKers do we have here on Interference? I know of myself, LMP, Lance, and lmjhitman (wherever the hell she is these days). What are you doing for music now?*

The main alternatives I've found are what.cd and waffles.fm. Both are closed right from their inception and getting invited could prove difficult. As far as waffles goes, you can be placed in a queue to get a membership if you can prove you were a member of OiNK. So Lance or LMP, if you've still got your invite emails, you might want to take a screencap and try to send it to them.


I need music, bitches.









*Please don't respond with "actually buying albums." No one likes a smart ass and I still buy albums anyway.

I'd never even heard of OiNK until this all happened. I used to belong to a site called Dancingmokey.com that had tons of albums, but I didn't upload enough myself to keep my membership active.

I frequent a lot of MP3 blogs and find new music there, but I don't download very many full albums.

(And no, I don't feel bad - I buy a LOT of CDs.)

MP3 blogs or torrents for me. Google blog search works great.

I only got to experience its glory for about a week.


I might try out waffles though.

cori, I remember seeing you on dancingmokey. I got kicked out too.


The second I get into one of these trackers and get some invites, I'll invite the old oinkers here.

MP3 blogs.

Variety and relative safety.

Oh, that's right!

There was a great, long-running thread with loads of U2 bootlegs, many of which I didn't have at the time.

I pay about $10/month for Rhapsody, and get to listen to almost any music I can imagine.

It's super convenient.

The great universal jukebox in the sky.

Pretty much any official release by anyone you can imagine in whatever audio format and quality you want.

Will do, thanks.

I would've been kicked off of OINK soon anyway. Nothing would seed after I finished downloading at like 700 kb/s.
