    Napster was the best. I am pretty sure I should be in jail for all the illegal songs that I downloaded. Oh well. Those were the days of the internet.

    I can't believe strangesearch didn't make the top 18. Anyone who was at ISU in the late 90's knows that I am talking about.

    Strangesearch was around in 2002-2003 when I was a Freshman. I think it got shut down sometime around 2003-2004ish...

    I am shocked at the following:

    "Speaking of search – One THIRD of all Internet searches are specifically for pornography. It is estimated that 80% of all images on the Internet are of naked women."

    Al Gore may have invented it, but it took Bill Clinton to put it to use.

    Strangesearch was indeed awesome and formed the foundation to my music collection to this day. Only downside is that it seemed people couldn't stay away from the kiddie porn on there. See Randy Brown.
