    hello oldie but newbie

    I'm really sorry about you personal tragedy. The annoying loss of some data is noting compared to the great personal losses you've suffered and no dogs and birds you may have can replace a daughter! Just hope that visting this forum you may find some sane distraction keeping your thoughts free of sorrow while here. Welcome!

    Great magazine site

    An absolutely great magazine site. Has got among all, more computer tech magazines then I can ever read. Only should update the URL, to avoid some wait while it is redirectioned. https://downmagaz.com Just should note that novafile.com hoster returns a server error: second link is to turbobit, which somehow, each time I try to get a download, makes me to wait 10 minutes notifying me that "You have reached the limit of connections from your IP range" After I wait the 10 minute countdown... I get the same note again... and again... So after waiting 30 minutes, I got nothing but the same warning again. Actually last time I'd connected succesfully to turbobit was about a week ago and I doubt that there are so much eventual turbobit downloaders from my DNS IP range... so looks this is a particular issue of turbobit is with my ISP.

    Best fake emailer I have ever seen

    Great FAKER; after at least 10 years, stll works and it got actually through gmail's spam control; at least, for the test I made. Any idea what's the meaning of those codes for Bitcoin Address and Litecoin addres. Characters are not URL address...
  4. Well, I don't understand why I became a "Newbie".  I recognize that I'm not a prolific poster. Made about 300 in 9 years, since I'm member of this forum. But somehow, they disappeared!...

      Thanks for your reply. SOMEHOW I SUSPECTED IT... Well, I'm also member of another forum, since about 2006. They've changed board software several times and postcount was never affected. But well, I presume you have more important issues to check than postcounts... At least profile view count was not reset. It's currently on 18,146 profile views.:wub: Quiete a lot, for a Newbie.

      Funnily enough it is just 3 members that don't start topics like yourself that have this fixation for numbers. None of the uploaders seem to care and the staff certainly don't. If we had it our way those numbers would reflect only live posts and other statistics would only be visible to staff.

      It's not a "fixation for numbers". As already stated, I can't care less about postcount. I find more important for my own statistics the views of my original posts and "community reputation". I simply find funny to be qualified as a "Newbie" just because the topics where I posted were deleted.

      Also, I only reply when I have something really useful to coment. If you are looking for members with "fixation" for postcounts, look for those who still REPLY "Thank you" or similar, and don't use the "button" without any significative content in their post.

  7. What makes a song considered to be included in the list of "the worst"? A piece of music needs to have been notable, popular, or memorable to be deemed the "worst ever", or it would be unlikely to top all-time public polls a few years after it was released. As such, a piece usually needs to have had a high-profile at the time of its release, such as an unexpected hit that was highly disliked outside of its fanbase, albums with poor material or songs that are most disappointing by artists. Scholarly accounts of the "worst music ever" are rare. Most polls or critical lists are light-hearted in nature, especially in pop music. Magazines reflect the preferences of their readers, and if polls are influenced by too small a group of readers or critics, they provide unreliable results. Most "worst ever" lists do not aim to take into account all music ever created, but are limited to certain time periods, styles of music, and geographical areas. Furthermore, individual tastes can vary widely, to the point where very little consensus on a worst song can be achieved; the winning song in a CNN e-mail poll received less than 5 percent of the total votes cast. You might agree or not with the items listed on "Not in Hall of Fame" - www.notinhalloffame.com - 100 Worst Songs of Modern Pop Culture: I guess that the only "problem" with many of those "blacklisted" songs is some stupid lyrics which might annoy people. I must confess that I don't care much about how deep or intellectual might be the lyrics of a song. I even realized that some of the song listed were not in my discography and found them interesting and worth enough to download. So, I feel it will be fun to browse this webpage: http://www.notinhalloffame.com/rock-and-roll/100-worst-songs-of-modern-pop-culture Definitively it's well documented "worst..." listings. For each song you have the comment of the poster, the link to the YouTube video and comments of registered followers of the website. You even can vote without signing in, selecting if you agree or not with the classification.

    Turbobit - troubled bit?

    Looks they are OK if you PAY a premium account. Real-Debrid looked an interesting option but I registered there and when try to use it says that as a FREE USER I only can dowload at "happy hours". So, I'm not really happy. Any idea WHEN they have a happy hour? As for Alldebrid, they "cheated" at register indicating that I had a FREE option and also cheated me to give them a "like" on Facebook. After I validated, it returns that I can't liberate links without a premium account. So, what use can I give to my "free" account except deleting the "Iike" I gave them on Facebook?

    Turbobit - troubled bit?

    PD: I checked trying to download with Google Chrome and using Windows 7 and get the same negative result. Turbobit keeps fooling me. So most probably they are blocking my ISP with the whole range of my IP. If most users don't have any important issue with Turbobit,,no way. As for rapidgator, my problem is that they give posters the option to restrict downloads to "only Premium" which should be a particular claim for a given case. Lately, Filefactory had been giving me good download results. Years ago it was a fairly popular hoster but currently has a somewhat reduced number of users.

    Turbobit - troubled bit?

    I'm using mostly Firexfox directly with Windows XP, without proxy and no VPN. I don't believe my ISP is messing with hosters. Most probably it's Turbobit "blocking" downloads from my ISP. Anyway, I'll try Google Chrome on Windows 7, to check if there is any difference.
  11. I'm afraid that current teen generation WORLDWIDE really doesn't care about Classic Rock and not even for the 80s and 90s.. If you browse '10s and even the '00s decade's top listings you find less and less rock and get mostly pop and hip-hop. 20th Century music is for the Contermporary Adult or even the Oldie category. Do you follow "Pawn Stars"? Corey and Chumlee show a total lack of minimal knowledge abour classic rock and even make fun about Rick when theme arises. This is real, not just a catch. I'm sure those two guys really don't have the least interest about rock music.. By the way, my answer is not a "joke". Actually I have some pesonal experience with youngsters learning good English understanding by following the songs with the lyrics.

    Turbobit - troubled bit?

    I'm not sure where to post this, guess this is the most appropriate section. The idea is just to share my dislike to this "funny" host site called Turbobit. While many hosters are "tricky", hiding the proper download link or delaying times, this TURBOBIT is most annoying, at least for me. I ALWAYS get this message when trying to download: "You've reached the limit of connections from your IP. Try to download again"... and starts a 9 minute countdown. Obviously, I haven't downloaded anything previously from Turbobit and I really don't believe that my IP is so compromised with Turbobit as to be connected and downloading ALL the time from there. The most annoying issue is that when I try to download after this 9 minute countdown, without giving even a second of additional delay, I get the same note and the same countdown again... and again. I don't know if other users have the same issue but if this is a generalized practice I suggest to Forum Administration to BAN links to this hoster. I don't mind to "suffer" some waiting time; I understand that hosters’ real business is to have premium users; but they shouldn't disguise the "only for premium" option as a fake option for "free download". As a side-note, I don't know what is current politics of the forum about posts that only have "ONLY FOR PREMIUM" links, which obviously is against the spirit of real file-sharing.
  13. Best way to teach Third World kids English is by providing them the lyrics of most recent songs of Justin Bieber!
  14. Please take note of the photo titled: 15 Year Old Erika Kornelia Szeles a Hungarian Resistance member who fought against the Soviets during the 1956 revolution Now, see the epilogue of that photo...

  15. A funny detal of "The Martian" is his playlist for the eternity: 1 Turn the Beat Around by Vicki Sue Robinson 2 Hot Stuff by Donna Summer 3 Rock the Boat by The Hues Corporation 4 Don't Leave Me This Way (Single Version) by Thelma Houston 5 Starman (2012 Remastered Version) by David Bowie 6 Waterloo by ABBA 7 Love Train by The O'Jays 8 I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor Not much, considering the playlist you can have even currently on an audio player with the size of a credit card and 128 Gb of stroring space. If you are prepared to spend the rest of your life out of this world, you can carry with you quite a lot of music on this device. Well, he had no choice. So I started to think about this. Let's presume I actually had the choice to select 8 tracks, what would be my choice? May I tell you, choice is not easy. As much a you may like a tune, would you like to listen it the rest of yout life? So I made this list. Maybe tomorrow I would change my mind but today is: Jailhouse Rock by Elvis Presley Pretty Woman by Roy Orbinson White House by Eric Claptom & Cream The Hustle by Van McCoy Heart of Glass by Blondie Hands Up by Ottawan California Girls by David Lee Roth The Fear by Lily Allen What would be YOUR choice if you were limited just to 8 tracks, as Astronaut Mark Watney?
