I remember when you'd get the first five seconds of the song and then three minutes of HORRIBLE SCREECHING SCRAMBLED AUDIO FROM HELL.
Also, are people really starting in with this "00's kids" bullshit already? If you don't remember the aughts then you're at best a toddler, in which case how are you even on the internet.

And if you ponied up for Limewire Premium you got an extra bar on your speedometer so you could think you're downloading this at turbo speed. I don't think any tears were shed when the school net admins shut down limewire access. It was more a sense of relief.

I remember AOL cutting out when getting songs from Napster in the 90s, which resulted in fun 30-90 second versions of songs.
I never had this because I had the sense to check the file size before I downloaded a song. It works out nicely at something like 1 megabyte / minute for most songs at 256kb/s.
Porn is where you really had to be cautious.

I know it took me a few weeks to figure it out, but I eventually did. I was so proud of my teenage self! :D
Never got this with Kazaa or imesh, but it's amusing to see that this was apparantly a thing.
I remember trying to download a yugioh episode and getting this horrible, extremely seedy looking German bondage porn instead.
I saw more Japanese vomit porn than anyone who isn't looking for Japanese vomit porn should have to.
Afraid I have you beat, broheim. I personally knew the original guy who owned the website poopdaddy.com.
Went to one of his LAN parties back in the day. And between the Team Fortress (Classic) matches, he'd show us several videos he found on the internet.
The Japanese Vomit porn were like little breaths of fresh air between the horror shows he had in store.
"HOT BLONDE TEEN BANGED BY TEN DUDES (Filesize: 476kb)"
There was a lot of like "CAR BOMB - STATIC-X, DISTURBED, LIMP BIZKIT & KORN" or whatever in my search results on Kazaa
I call bullshit on the description, because using Limewire never actually involved downloading anything in my experience. All the action was in the configuration window.

Am I behind a proxy? Should I be? Whoa whoa whoa, what are all these empty fields in the "advanced" settings window? Should there be stuff in there?
