    you guys should pay for your music, 80 albums * $20 each is only $1600, you can afford it :p

    p.s where all the waffles/what users at?

    I just got invited to stmusic.org by a friend whom I invited to Oink. Haven't poked around much yet, but the site seems ugly & slow, a couple of 500 errors, but at least it's something.

    I'm still hoping someone here will link me with an invite to Waffles and What

    I'm now on What.cd & stmusic.org - I think I'll be mostly ignoring stmusic due to the interface issues.
    what.cd has an oink-like interface and with only 20000 users surprisingly good connection speeds.
    they've just closed registration again, but I'll spread some around as soon as they are ready to expand their user base again.

    hey what's your ID on what, SP? I'm mcflash.

    Just got it last night and have been leeching like crazy.

    If anyone needs an invite for what.cd I have two. Just PM me your email address and I'll send em out today so you can have some leech time before freeleech ends.

    Sorry folks, that was a bit premature. They capped the user list at 20000 and while there were spots open last night, they are closed now.

    Rajio and bitchass will get invites if/when they open again.

    i'm not doing anything with music torrents for awhile... i don't trust any of the new 'Oink replacements'... i'm sticking with filelist and filemp3 for now.

    both stmusic & what.cd usernames are the same as for Tribe - feel free to add me & make recommendations; it'll take me awhile to get my torrent client full of 100+ seeds...

    what's not to trust? If it goes down, it's still cost you nothing.

    edit: cool beans, Slippery.

    Looking for an invite to What.cd, especially if I invited you to Oink.

    So What.cd has taken the current throne? Did anyone get on waffles?

    If anyone knows when registration opens again, or gets a invite I'd be very appreciative.

    waffles seems to have the most active house/techno sections of the two. still not near what oink was doing though.

    what/waffles PUHLEASE - will give case of 12 imported beer for invites (your choice)

    you can choose to drink domestic but I will lower my opinion of you.

    What has an disproportionate seeders to leechers ratio making it difficult to up your own ratio. Everyone is going mad with uploads! Which in the long run will be a good thing but with the limited number of users, it also has a lonnnnng way to go to be anywhere near Oink's thoroughness. Hopefully in a year, it'll be solid.

    I don't have a Waffles account so I can't comment.

    i have a long lineup of friends waiting for invites to stmusic and what

    unfortunately neither site ever opens up registrations of new users, so i can never invite anyone

    it's really dumb

    So elite no one can join. Sweet!

    So frustrating! Everything is trying to be too cautious/esoteric/elite whatever, and then all of us oinkers are displaced and all the music/apps/etc. I'm tired of flipping between all the sites. torrents, stmusic, what, etc.

    OINK RIP!

    If any one sent in proof of oink membership to waffles, check your junk folder for your invite. That is where I found mine.
