These were the times where it was common during one's late teens to suddenly stop and freeze mid coitus.

What are you doing she would say?

Buffering kids, buffering. You will never know our pain.

Limewire was like a 40 yr old Brooklyn hooker in the mid 80s who didn’t insist on condoms.

It was literally riddled with severe viruses. It busted my pc so violently once that the RUC came to the door and asked if we had been nail bombed.

Audiogalaxy was great, a weird client but always reliable.

These fuckers as well as Kazaa, Bearshare and the like are the reason for YouTube videos with titles like this.

I'll go one better.
A guy I knew in the states during the 90s circumvented a porn sites security and gained access to their FTP server.
For about 3 years into the early 2000s we had access to about 30GB of online space where we shared files, until the site went offline.

Used to love limewire. Was the only place I could find WWE Theme Music back in the day. Used to practically live in an internet cafe downloading everything in sight.
