Pay and buy mp3

In another step to be a "honest" music lover, I decided to purchase songs online and use them, rather than scrapping around the net for hours (sometimes days) for a dismal 64kbps audio dump.

http://gomusic.ru is a russian site for pay and download english songs in mp3 format.

It works out something like this. You first deposit some money into your "account" in the website (using your credit card). Now, you have money in your "wallet". Most songs cost between $0.10 to $0.15. If purchased as a full album, then you get a 10% discount.

I was very skeptical about the usage of credit cards, as the internet-word was that most russian sites were fraudulant and misuse the credit card details submitted online. But, so far nothing untoward dip in balance has happened to the credit card. I initially deposited $20 to my wallet, in may last year (2006). So far, I am able to download all songs, the account is properly getting debited and my credit card is safe.

You get most songs in 192kbps bit rate and the download speed is pretty good (approx 70kbps). One thing though is that you cannot use any download accelerator with the site (with that speed, it shouldnt be much of an issue).

But, if you still feel that I can live with a ripped-off 64kbps stuff, check out this link for a step-by-step tutorial to becoming a unassuming heartless brain-challenged nitwit. (hehehehahaha...)
