Howling Bells - Howling Bells 
I somehow came across this band the other day completely by accident. What I mean by that is that I wasn't looking for any music at that time, I was just aimlessly surfing the net trying to focus my mind from pain etc. I found a page where someone had uploaded a couple of tracks and was going on about how great this band was. I couldn't read that and then just go off without trying them for myself now could I?
Am I glad I did!
I now have them in my playlist on Winamp more than anything else (for now).
I love it!
Think 'Nick cave' meets 'PJ Harvey' meets Transvision Vamp (yes seriously) meets Siouxsie Sioux(get this - I have just been informed that they used to be a couple and I knew nothing of it!!)... meets that 90's UK Grunge sound.
I can't tell you enough times YOU MUST hear this.

Unfortunately I discover today that the so far brilliant and fast, unlimited file hosting service MEDIAFIRE.com, has now announced it will no longer be accepting password protected rar files.
Fair enough, bad news and all that but the most annoying thing is that they didn't actually fuckin' announce it; I uploaded a huge file there and when it had finally finished uploading the page refreshed with the message informing me of the new rule and saying the file would not be hosted there.
Might they consider just telling us BEFORE we upload something?
On a lighter note, I just spent about a whole days worth of hours removing the worst virus I have even encountered. Ever.
It consisted of lots of separate files which all helped each other to stay active and stop me removing or deleting any of them. It is a horrible thing when you delete a file and it reappears right there in front of you.
Even more horrifying is when you try to run any of lots of security programs, even the registry editor and windows throws up an error saying the file cannot be found...when you are looking right at the file and it is definitely there!
I learned a lot today.
I learned about 'Image File Execution Options' which, you would hope you never have to. This part of your loving XP registry is where you can enter a file name and an alias which basically means, if I enter notepad and give it the alias iexplore.exe(the Internet explorer program file) then, any time anyone tries to run notepad internet explorer will open.
now, imagine if you have a huge list of every known antivirus program file written into there with the alias file all being redirected to the actual virus! Causing it to be executed multiple times any time you try to do anything! Then add to that the ability, whenever I open ANY explorer window, for a pair of files to be instantly created which are another part of the virus...I could go on.
One more thing, this seems to be a very new or little known about virus too.
A Google or any other search only brought back pages from China...and not many either.
I like a challenge though.
For any of you not savvy in the area of computing generally: You have NOTHING to fear from any mp3 files or anything I upload!! The virus infects EXE files and DLL files only. Plus, you should scan everything you download anyway, not like me...I learned that much today: To stop being a twat and thinking I had an invincible PC!
