Listening to music as I run used to not be that important, but in the past year it has become an integral part of my workout, but lately the computer has been giving me attitude and I'm having music issues. I wanted to download some new stuff because I've been listening to the same music for some months now and have grown bored with it. Anyhoo, I have Musicmatch on my computer, and it usually lets me connect to the "On Demand" site no problem to download songs, but the past couple of weeks it has been saying that the Internet connection can't be found.
This is bullshit. I'm connected to the Internet right now, no problem, cable connection -- super speeds. Why can't Musicmatch connect? So after weeks of being denied, last night I got down to business on the computer and tried my best to figure it out: Which mostly meant wandering around in my computer settings and asking the Lord "Why?" (I also cursed some.) I figure one of two things must be done: Either this is Musicmatch's way of bullying me into upgrading to Jukebox Plus, or our computer has some sort of virus.
I lean toward the former because it has given me other problems as well (it wouldn't let me burn a CD a friend gave me and so forth). This is really bugging me because once I get it into my head that I want new music, or new anything for that matter, I grow very frustrated when I can't immediately have it. And running just feels lackluster lately and I need a pick me up -- new tunes would be perfect. Are there any computer geeks out there who can offer any advice?
