Mediafire and local files

I went looking for an old track by a favourite artist of mine - Teen Daze. I'm rewinding 10 years, back to the release of Everywhere / Cold House. I was surprised to find, after having no luck finding these tracks on spotify, that the mediafire links are still up, 12 years later.

I downloaded both tracks and opened them locally.

Imagine that? Finding music on blogs and sharing individual files on hosting sites. The nostalgia is kicking in.

These tracks still smash, so go give them a listen before the bit-rot settles in, and they disappear into the ether.

In a similar vein, maybe sometime this month I'll re-dowload the oldest version of Reason and see if it still runs on my machine (later: Reason 10 still works!)
