Teaching junk is hazardous without lunch

Recently the library came out with this cool new feature to download songs. It's called Freegalmusic dot com, but you want to access that sight thru the library's home page so that you can download your songs for free with just your library account number.

Anyway, it's rather challenging to download entire albums since you must download it 3 songs at a time per week. I use a memory stick Wichita I them transfer to my computer at home since I don't have Internet access at home anymore. I was showing co-worker how it's done.

Problems arose. Horrible, terrible problems that, if one should decide to investigate them, never should they attempt this on an empty stomach. Either that, or simply have whomever is taking notes stop and scoot while expert takes the helm. I'm not saying I'm a computer wizard, but I have already successfully downloaded three CDs since this freegal feature began.

I've got Reign in blood, by Slayer, God hates us all, by Slayer and I'm working on Undisputed attitude, by... I started listening to God hates us all today. I don't know why I waited to start building my Slayer collection of CDs. These songs are awesome badass.

What do you mean problems arose? Problems with the downloading or problems with the coworker?

For starters computer 5 doesn't have the same file structure as 4. So when we accidentally forgot to select the save option and instead ended up just opening the song, we couldn't find the "temp" folder where such files which are dwnlded are kept temporarily. 5 didn't want to cooperate when being prompted to save on usb men stick. While all this is happening, freegal is counting each snafu as a download.

Just a computer glitch, I think. But it seemed worse since co-worker didn't know her way around the Windows file structure.

Is it a City of LA Public Library feature, or (hopefully) is it a LA County Library System feature? I want to give it a try.

LAPL <--city, not county. The good news is, as long as u r a California resident, the annual $50 fee for nonnresidents is waived. U could live in sf, Sacramento, fresno, etc. And still get a library card.
