      alot of kids use free downloading sites such as Limewire. I know my girls were

      using it every chance they got. I would uninstall it from the computer, they’d

      put it back on until I finally banned them from using the computer at all. These

      sites are a hotbed for viruses. I’ve been without my home computer over a month

      now due to it crashing from a virus. I finally get it tomorrow. They guy who

      fixed it said he’s pretty sure it was Limewire or something like it that left us

      vulnerable.

      I’m not computer saavy enough to understand all the details, but I already told

      my girls if anyone uses one of these sites, they will be banned from the

      computer except for school projects (and under my supervision) for well into the

      future.

      but, it is true about cds, i don’t know hardly any kids who purchase them

      anymore. they all download.

      But don’t you have to pay to download songs onto an

      MP3 player? And have a computer at home to do that? I

      want to make sure not to give a gift that requires

      resources they might not have.
