Happy Anniversary Napster

June 1999, Napster launches. Yes, this is the 10th anniversary of the greatest peer-to-peer software. Unlike most people I never used Napster to dowload albums and very rarely to download new songs. I used it to download hard to find singles, mostly things that at that time never showed up on CD. I still have a bunch of those Napster-made CD's.
Then the suits got all upset. Lars, the RIAA and they thought when they killed Napster they killed the beast. But now other sites continue to pop up. They killed nothing.
