Jacques Brel radio station

There is a great all Jacques Brel online radio station from Belgium here:

I don't know how long this has been on. I discovered this station only a few weeks ago.

Jacques Brel

Hi Don. Don't you have the complete Jacques Brel collection yet ? :)

Maybe there are some rare live performances to download on the p2p...

p2p is the way...

but keep encryption enabled, and auto-randomise port [use Átorrent!]

Encrypted p2p

I'm not sure if torrent is the best way to find rare files, I did not try encrypted p2p yet (I only know that it is slower and Ants is really ugly).

I use eMule. It's very slow, but seems to be the only way you can get some files. There are very few high quality DVD images and lossless (flac format) music files available. The vast majority are of low quality avi/mpg movies and mp3 music files.

some more on P2P..

1. to thibault: *enable* encryption, do not *force* encryption [unless you are doing 'private' pre-arranged P2P :) ]. If you force encryption then you will probably get too few peers.

2. P2P: well, until early last year there were no flacs - now there are a few and it will keep growing ;) Also, lots of DVD images - dont you see all those 4.3 GB and 8 GB torrents for *one* film? Just go to http://isohunt.com [for privacy, use https://isohunt.com] and see!

if cue - bin files or .iso files are available you can just play these virtual cd/dvds through daemon-tools or winmount - you need not even burn them!

rare files and torrent...

Well it is like looking for some particular rare thing in 2nd hand shops / fleamarket.. -- you keep trying every 2-3 months, you get some 'quite' rare files over time if you are lucky...

The frustrating thing is when you find a torrent but it is inactive - no one is seeding --- then you can post requests in newsgroups for someone to seed, and hope for the best..

For example, I have 25% of audio of a Chomsky-Foucault debate [I have the transcript - it is very interesting!] - 12 other people have the same 25% and waiting for someone to seed! [for the last 2 years]
