Fight fire with fire!

I would urge everyone to download this if you use P2P...

Dark Tip: Block the RIAA

PeerGuardian is a free program that hides your file sharing from known RIAA informants.

Keep RIAA informants off your case


Each time you launch PeerGuardian, it downloads the latest list of known RIAA informants and blocks them from connecting to your computer. The list contains hundreds of known IP-address ranges the RIAA has used to catch file swappers.


Does PeerGuardian offer 100 percent protection? No. If an unknown RIAA informant sneaks through, you're still busted.


Remember, the best way to not get caught is to not share pirated files. Support the musicians or movies you love and pick up a CD or DVD. Then share it. (Just kidding.)

PeerGuardian does work like it claims to.
And -- bonus! -- no ad/spyware!

It can be a little resource-heavy, so keep that in mind if you've got an older machine.

MA....
You are such a butthead.


We never said we actually *use* the above program or any others like it, or that we download music of an illegal nature. Infact, I outright deny it!
I just don't want anyone poking around in my computer. Aside from 38 firewalls and a dozen routers, I also keep my whole computer encased in a steel box.
No mp3s here.

God gave us USB external hard drives for a reason.

It is a nice little piece of software.

The music companies are crazy to be going after people like this anyway. I hope they fail.

Once connected- you are still vulnerable to them searching your hard drive... unless you just have a dedicated computer that is not connected to the net to store your mp3s.
What I would like to know is, could the RIAA mistake the legal mp3s you have on your hard drive for illegal ones?
I store my music digitally.. no way I am going to go back to using a CD carousel.

Congrats on your new avatar TWYT!

Hope it wasn't too painful.

Meanwhile, this Topic is rife with excellent ideas and critiques.

Q. How big a hard drive do I need to store 4000 music CDs digitally as mp3's?

What's RIAA? And should I be scared of it.

It's the recording industry... (Can't remember the exact name)


If you don't share or download mp3's online, then you don't have to...

Or if you live in a country where it would not be possible for them to sue you or anything like that...

About 2 terrabytes, assuming the aveage CD holds 10 songs, and each song is 5 megs in size

How much does a 2-Terabyte HDD cost?

You can't quite get a terabyte drive to drop in yet.
You could get two of these:
www.evertech.com...
and shell out $4000US plus shipping & handling.

Interested?

That's a server
(and a damned good one at that)
but I think MA just wanted the drive itself. Unless he's got $14K to throw around, that is.

Hmmmm

Applying law of diminishing returns against price matrices for new technology:

I would be nett better off getting a 20-Terabyte HDD to store my 6000 CDs in twenty-seven months.

How much electricity does that server use?

With a USB drive, I build a small playlist, store it locally then unplug the drive. If you are trying to find a song that you know you've already paid for but lost the cd then i suggest you gather what you need, logoff and move the songs to hd. USB is very useful if you have a laptop.

As far as converting CD libraries...I usually just convert those CD's that i'm most interested in. It simply isn't feasible to rip cds at high rate and store them in mp3 if you have them on cd's.
