An unnamed person of my acquaintance downloads all music in such a way as to avoid paying anybody anything, then, if he likes the music, he make a real effort to buy tickets to go and see the band live.
Speaking as a performing musician, I can't help but sympathise with this approach. It is very difficult for musicians to get a good deal from record companies etc., despite the efforts of the musician's union. At least my unnamed acquaintance shows practical support for the bands he likes by attending their gigs.

Feck. Try logging in again Delph mate. It might give you the login window, then when you've logged in, it may say you've still to login again. Try that. It normally lets members in second time around under their login name. Unless you're working from another pc and it doesn't have a cookie for here stored. Still should allow you in second time around though.
