I'm not usually an afficianado of American music, but surfing on Spaceflight Now the other night, I bumped into a link to
folk/folkrock song "Fire in the Sky" from prometheus music.

Brought tears to my eyes, just like it did to Buzz Aldrin.

http://www.prometheus-music.com/

Other mp3s available, too.  Highly recommended, if you like the folk genre.

Care to add to the music recommendation list?

ControlledFarce, bugger off.

Atom, I don't post nonlegal music or other cultural links.  This one is a promo from prometheus music. They have five
downloadable mp3s from their latest CD.  "Fire in the Sky" has been licenced by NASA for something they're doing, can't
remember what.

If it was illegal, I guess Spaceflight Now would be in a pile of it, too, wouldn't they?

controlled, keep it at a fair level please.

And be aware that if a major want to sue you about the Mp3 I could be
obligated to give him your IP.

No one is really hidden on the net.

Ah ? I don't see any ip relaying ?! I can even give you without any search
the town where you live...  

Anyway THIS isn't the main point... I personnaly don't care at all about what you
do with your computer. I just care about what you write on this forum.

And as you post often it would be cool for you and others to register.
post count, private messaging and no side effect.

In any case, that's why you gotta live in a town with 3 million people.

it makes the search just a tad tougher. ;)

and to controlled force, I neither condemn nor condone software "piracy" but bragging about it is just downright
stupid

the fact that we are hidden on the net is a myhte (myte myhte myythhh mhhhytt meet ? ah.. damn word)
in case of serious law problem every host is forced to reveal who is behind an Ip
even with proxy...

Anyway it's true that there is very litle chance to get sued about mp3 here.

What I wanted to say is what told free: do whatewer illegal you want but don't bragg
about it in a public forum.

(he he I learned a new word "bragging" thanks free ;)

dan, the word you're looking for is "myth"

or, to make it easier, "urban legend." :)

And it's just "brag" with one 'g'

but you add another g when you and the "ing"

yes, I'm just too lazy to sign in for one post

This exchange reminds me of a case a number of years ago.  A third party computer consultant did some work for the Bank of
America. He noticed that interest paid out was calculated to the fourth decimal. When they applied it to an account they
truncated to the second decimal.  He placed a program that took the third and fourth decimals and placed them in a private
account.  After several months he had amassed quite an amount.

He withdrew his illgotten gains and bought Russian diamonds for transport to the US.  He then sat and waited for the story to
break.  It didn't. Bank of America never noticed the theft.  After a time he seemed disgusted that his exploit went unnoticed
and told his story to a lawyer, who promptly turned him. I think he's still in prison.

Anyone who brags of illegal exploits, deserves what they get and will in the end.  It's a sign of an immature and amoral
personality.

Note: on this side of the Atlantic, RIAA has started court action against those who have downloaded illegal music.  Seems one
of their best sources is scanning discussion forums ... and copies of such being forwarded to them.  In Canada one young
fellow received a $100,000 fine for downloading just one file.

sure, and it works like a charm on my home pc, but I was at school for most of my posts today. I've been bouncing
from computer to computer. from the PC networks lab, to the electronics workbench lab, and then to the library. I'm
forced into login in each time in that scenario. I just get lazy...

Yeah, I don't care how illegal downloading songs are, though, punishment like that is excessive and abusive. because
of that, I'm no friend of the RIAA, and so I say F*** them  I recall that if not for some court
decisions, making copies of the old cassette tapes by playing them and recording on another one would be illegal and
immoral too. same thing with VCR's, which are also going to the way side.

I've not any interest in the songs being released by them anymore, they just suck. The only songs I ever listen to
anymore are out of their jurisdiction anyway, Which is my way of punching them straight in the face.

RIAA and bro are like an old fat uggly dinosaurs and I expect that soon a meteorite
will fall on their head as the former dinosaurs...
They are totally outdated and deserve the cause they pretend to serve: music and artists.
Time for them to disappear and for a new system to come up.

(notice the subttle reference to "meteorite" wich is totally in-topic ;) )

And back on topic. :) I downloaded the songs last night and they are perfect for orbiter. They'd actually be great to
include in an Orbiter video. I can imagine "Fire In The Sky" playing in the background in a clip of a shuttle launch.

As for legality the ones that are free to download are provided as a sample of the album so they are perfectly legal.
Actually after hearing them I'm tempted to order the album. Just have to see how much I have left over after I get my
video card and a copy of Windows XP for my new computer.

After all that talking, I finally got around to listening to them.

And I must admit, it's won the...



A rare award for english songs these days.

If I wasn't such a poor cheapskate, I'd buy the cd. :)
