Free bootlegs at DIME

Good old torrent bootlegs website DIME-a-dozen has just started their “freeloader” days today. It goes on until Jan 8th.

For those already registered, it’s a chance to get many R.E.M. bootlegs that were shared during the year, or at least a chance to improve your ratio.

My account got deleted. Sadly no way of recovering. No new registrations at present. :frowning:

I’m sorry for that. And it seems they only open for registration once in a while, after deleting a few accounts.

I’ve gone through account deletion a long time ago. DIME is famously difficult, because it always seems you download what you want, but everyone is faster than you and you can never get a good ratio by uploading in return. So I stopped using my account for a while (around 2007, I think) and it got deleted for bad ratio+inactivity. But of course. I couldn’t upload anything ever!

And then I made a new one and developed a sort of method for at least keeping a decent ratio now and then. And I think later they started doing these freeloader days around holiday time, so now I can download every R.E.M. bootleg during the year and heal my ratio during these two weeks.

One ridiculously overpriced dinner later, here it is:


Grabbed it! Thank you! After 19 years, my memory of the Aerosmith bit (track 07) was pretty darn accurate. It’s so fun to hear this show again!
