Do I want to download the Limewire stuff?

Remember, I'm old and scared. The whole torrent thing went terribly awry. I want to download live songs, but I want to keep it simple. Does Limewire just involve mp3s, or is it the dreaded torrent shit again?

I don't really know a lot about Limewire but this this is where I do go to a lot these days:

http://hype.non-standard.net/


From there I find a lot of great mp3s and a lot of great blogs where people talk about great music. New and old.

Limewire is mp3s, no torrents involved. Since you're on a Mac, you shouldn't have to worry about getting any crazy viruses that PCs can get from Peer to Peer file sharing.

And, the link that Westport gave you to The Hype Machine is excellent

Yeah, if you had a PC, based on the computers I've worked on lately, I'd say Limewire is one of the LAST things you'd ever want to use. Is SoulSeek available for Macs? I've been using it for years and never had any instances of viruses or mal/spy/ad-ware.

Thanks guys. I bookmarked Hype Machine, and I'll give Limewire a shot later. I'm especially looking for the live U2 mp3s that everyone else but me can find.

I'm more of a complete album freak instead of downloading individual singles, but I suppose regular p2p stuff like Limewire is okay for the latter.

Soulseek is probably one of the few good experiences I've had with P2P programs other than Bittorrent, since there are chat rooms full of people with lots of good music libraries.

Limewire is safe.

My mate got a porn virus from it once , every time he opened up his web browser it would direct him to a porn site.

Limewire is good - really it is - but if live U2 is what you're after, your best bet would be to download from the u2bloodredsky hub. It's got mp3s of pretty much every show U2 has ever performed.
