Ah, those were the days.

A random search got me to a Bulgarian website. I'll explain later. A friend of mine used to have this program that he bought from a Bulgarian software company through the Internet that let him efficiently and ruthlessly download software and music and video from anywhere on the net. It's sole purpose was to coordinate many downloads at the same time so that you didn't have to keep windows open or anything. Plus, it would try to download using two or more slots if possible AND it was able to stop downloads and then start them up again without any interruption. It was a miracle program for low priced music and software enthusiasts. My friend bought it off the internet no problem; the Bulgarian company was honest and didn't do anything with his credit card. Just sold him a kick ass program for pirating all sorts of content.

Well, those wistful days of 1998 are no more, I guess. I found the same Bulgarian software company that my friend bought the software from and now it only sells a pop-up blocker. Oh well, I guess that's what Bit Torrent software is for now.

By the way, I had Bulgaria on my mind because I'd looked it up on Wiki and the page looked like it'd been worked over pretty well by the Bulgarian Tourist Board. It was streamlined in content so perfectly that it didn't look like a Wiki entry but instead like a brochure. Look it up your self, you can do it. Then for comparison I went to Belarus' Wiki page. Not so good.

Well, then there are the poor ex-Soviet administrative districts, or independent Republics, that try to sell themselves on Wikipedia.

But I'm tired and am going to go to bed.
