Breaking a duck

I broke a duck today and paid for a music download :-0.

As I imagined, the nasty nasty copyright software then stopped me doing what I wanted with MY download, i.e., committing the mortal sin of putting it on my mp3 player AND saving a backup copy to the p.c.!

I also had a noodle around napster, who seemed to be even worse, and wanted to charge me 79p every time I did anything with the file. So much for the '30 days free trial' - my advice is don't bother.

This sort of crass nonsense is why people persist in illegal file sharing. Gosh, wouldn't it be terrible if I had 2 copies for my 69p!
