Bauhaus Covers and eMule

The astute amongst you may have seen that I was listening to a Bauhaus covers CD whilst writing an earlier post. Well, it's certainly an interesting album and has a few good covers on it. Once I finish it I may let you know what's what (I'm only on track 5 now because I stopped and got dinner, spoke to my Mum, and have been pisisng about on eMule....

....what a handy link into....

eMule is a peer-to-peer downloader. Kathryn told me about it on Wednesday and I've been meaning to have a poke about one for a while. I used Kazaar a few years ago but took it off the machine for some reason or other. eMule doesn't download spyware or anything to your computer and is an open source program so it has a couple of advantages over some other software. Now I'm very new to this downloading malarky but it seems a bit slow at the moment. Anyone know how to speed things up? All I've been downloading at present is songs but I wouldn't mind downloading videos at somepoint.

Found a few Sisters tracks that I've been wanting (Comfortably Numb, Confide in Me, Cry Little Sister, etc), several The Bravery tunes, and a host of Nine Inch Nails tracks/covers/duets (including one with Garbage apparently and a duet with Marilyn Manson covering Like a Virgin!). Once they (finally) download I'll let you know if they're any good...... just wish it'd hurry the f**k up.

Anyway, I'm going to leave the old PC running and go and start watching Season One of The Shield as I've had it forvere and still not seen it. I will get round to watching Richard III one day. Honest.
