things have reached a tipping point and the DMCA, DRM junk has pretty
much destroyed the net.
I was looking today for some African Jungle sounds for my Parrot to
listen to. You can't find anything any more. Just a few years ago,
this would have been an easy junt into some educational archive. The
addition of hollywood witch hunting has left nothing but $29.95 block
buster DVD sound effects on the web.
I can't find information on nearly anything any more.
It's just a disaster. I know every university under the sun has sound
tracts like this from the 1940's on, sitting in their archives. You
can't even find recordings of crickets in your garage any more...
It's such a waste.
