is it buy for me (from slovakia) to buy things from e-bay? I am afraid of filling in payment info, i don't want to get my bank account wiped.

someone has experience with internal buying via ebay?

I just can't get my hands on some music elsewhere. Namely things like "Screaming Lord Sutch", "Jerry Lee Lewis", "Little Richard"...

PS: Just in case someone of you has something like this in MP3, i'm pretty sure you woudln't want to upload it somewhere, coz' it's illegal Smile

My experience with eBay has been completely positive. I have bought items ranging from ~$5.00 up to ~$2000.00 and I haven't had a bad transaction yet. If you use something like PayPal to provide payment then you don't have to worry about the seller 'wiping' your account.

Check the sellers feedback if you want to get a feel for how 'safe' they are in terms of whether you will get what you paid for or not. With anything like this there is always risk but in the case of eBay the good outcomes far outweigh the bad outcomes hence it's amazing success.

i don't like p2p clients, and alot of them (like limewire) are coded in java or something. When i want something i either get on aim (or msn for foreign music) or use google. lol

vid, how much slower is you connection after all? and, you have to pay for time of use, for bytes transferred or just a fixed amount per month? I remember when I used morpheus and Kazaa with dial-up 56kbps at night (because I had a plan of my telephone company that was free using internet at night).

Anyway, if you have to not pay extra money to get connected 24/7 then use P2P.

2gigs prepaid with a speed like that? Personally, i'd switch to another company, but i don't know if that's an option for you or not.

ps: thanks for link vasilev, seems there are even "rare" things like this.

Wonder that people have forgotten this extremely (almost most) influential band...
