Searching for HTTP and FTP Music Files: The Quest for Billy Idol
One day, for no apparent good reason, I had an urge to hear Billy Idol singing, "Dancing with Myself." I didn't know why, and I couldn't find my CD, last seen in the vicinity of the black maw under the driver's seat. Still, some urges are not to be denied. Surely on the Internet I can find one song by one has-been glam-punk rocker. Because any two searches for the same song or artist can produce different, overlapping results, the consummate MP3 hunter must master more than one way to search for MP3s. Follow me as I look at using online search engines, a metasearch programMP3 Fiendand Outlook Express to search newsgroups.
