SO DEMANDING posted:

the best was fulfilling your piracy needs at LAN parties

at a couple parties there was this one regular who'd always bring his big honkin' multi-TB server (which was crazy in the early 2000s). ftp only, no smb. i think there was a cracked copy of flashfxp in the root directory, so just hop on through a web browser to grab that and then leech all day all night.

yeah, file sharing was such a part of those LAN parties, especially back when internet connections were a lot slower. i was on dialup until like 2004 so the LANs at places with broadband were times when i could get to experience fast web browsing, or even grab movies off of DC or WinMX.


but i definitely remember late night when people started nodding off being the time to just start copying poo poo from each others' SMB shares.

asked for fifteen percent and was told that it seems doable, actual numbers to come. hopefully I'll get at least twelve

the chili peppers chemistry resides in the man love between kiedis and flea. the rest of the whole construct is throwaway

sublime was also terrible.
