Send Me

With the death of the Pope last Sunday, I've been watching CNN quite regularly. And with all the images of the priests, cardinals and bishops, I couldn't help but remember this from bash.org.

[jeebus] the "bishop" came to our church today
[jeebus] he was a ****** impostor
[jeebus] never once moved diagonally

Last time I used to get most of my music from MIRC. I forgot which channel I would to go, but I would always log on in the morning because traffic was low and there was no need to wait in queue.

But ever since some authority started to clamp down and IRC started dying, I have no more source for my music. And what it made it worse was that my laptop died some time last year, and along with it, my 1200+ songs. So after I got my laptop back, the only way I could get music was from my friends. The only problem with this method is that it's very troublesome. Your friend has to be online at the same time, you have to check with him if he/she has the songs that you want.. etc.

And while everyone has moved on to cable and broadband, I'm still using a lousy 56K connection. So even if I did find someone who was willing to send me songs, it would be painstakingly slow for both sides. What's more, I heard recently that the authorities are starting to monitor internet traffic as well to catch more people to share files online.

Howver, my friend suggested a new way of sending songs. Via Gmail. It's a good way of making use of the 1GB space they provide and it's more convenient as both you can upload and download the song in your own time. I don't think you'll be caught too, as long as you zip up the files that you send over.

So if anybody has any good songs from any genre, please send it to zenithsequence@gmail.com . I need some good music to listen to as I blog. =)

You are not alone, and you'll be surprised to know that one of my senior engineers is still using mysingtel (free internet - only need to pay toll charges)!
