I was looking at joining a music club that cost .99 a song, but my questions is more about my Computer, I have the regular phone connection so does anyone have any idea how long it would take to download say a 4 or 5 minute song? Any help is greatly appreciated!

The length of the DL would depend on your modem speed. A 4.5Mb file will take approximately 11 minutes on 56k modem. You can calculate DL times here:
www.martindalecenter.com/AATimeCalc.html

As for the Bit Torrent file sharing, it is just as illegal to DL music using that software as it is any other type of peer-to-peer file sharing network. If you want to have completely legal music on your computer, any of the various $0.99 per DL sites are a good deal.

i thought that site was being shut down. something to do with copyright infringment with movies. i thought i read somewhere that they were shuting it down so they didn't get fined. movies unlike music are carrying huge fines, i heard up to 150k.

They shut down the biggest tracker suprnova.com but its gonna take a while to shut em all down.

just this easy

To help simplify things, download Azureus it's a bittorrent client on of many, my favorite.
get it here:

http://azureus.sourceforge.net/

then go to many bittorrent search sites, one of the biggest just got shut down like CartmansPnus pointed out. Then download movies, full albums, individual songs, software, and whatever else, really illegal though, so don't follow these easy steps to start DL'ing
like these:
http://isohunt.com/
http://torrentsearch.bounceme.net/

as for the time it takes, depends on your available bandwidth of both you and the seed, and the file size. Bittorrent works like this, while your getting, your giving at the same time, even though the file has not completed. So share, you leech! :)

Agreed. Torrents are the only way to fly. If you're on a mac, Tomato Torrent is kick ass. You can download multiple files from multiple sites at the same time.

Upgrade your lame dial up first. No reason to even try to start downloading huge files on dial up unless your middle name is patience.

Crap, I don't like to wait two minutes to microwave a burrito and some of the larger downloads still take up to 3 days with an expanded cable connection. That would take you until retirement with dial up.
