    I have had dial up for awhile and I want to switch back to cable. But the main reason is so that I can download music. If I use a program such as Imesh or Kazaalite will they find out ? If you disable the file sharing are you ok ?

    tha govt cant get your stuff unless its in your shared folder, if you turn sharing off and move stuff out of your download folder you are perfectly safe.

    :withstupid:

    kazaalite also has a feature that doesnt allow people to search your shared folder and blocks any IPs known to be related to the RIAA just incase

    so once I download the music, I just need to cut and paste to a new folder. As well as disabling the sharing function ?

    If I use some sort of IP blocker, will that help ?

    Yeah just move your music and movies to another directory that's not shared and you're fine. I still share all my other stuff though... My own music, my old bands music, text files, car videos, weird music that the riaa has no interest in, etc. :)

    An IP blocker doesn't do shit... I don't feel like posting an explanation right now... so if you want to know why:
