Wow. It's been over a year. Lots has happened, lots has changed. The blog community sort of went underground and it's very difficult to find sites that will share music.
Even the bit torrent community "disappeared". If you didn't know the blog moderator on a first name basis, you were toast. (I guess I would classify as a "leech").
Not sure how to progess from this point on. guess we'll just take it one post at a time.
