Download Hardmoon's MP3 tracks

But in a somewhat unconventional way

"The music may be heard, but some effort has to be put in"

What, no links?

Some music is free to download as MP3 from this server, just by using the telnet protocol.

Funny thing is that hardmoon.net also hosts a Bulletin Board System. Dialing with a phone to computers around the world running such a BBS was very popular in the 80's and early 90's (anyone remember the movie Wargames?). Communities on the BBS'es were strong, people unreachable by phone and the phonebills very high.

For mere nostalgic reasons I decided not to offer direct links to the MP3 files, but invite you to relive those days of dialing in. Luckily, this can now be done using the Telnet protocol on the internet, so it's completely free;)

So what to do?

Download the excellent terminal application SyncTERM to get access via Telnet. When SyncTERM is started, you can create a new 'phonebook' and add a new entry with the following data:

Servername: hardmoon.net
Portname: 23
Protocol: Telnet

When connected, follow the on-screen instructions by registering a username/password, leave some nice oneliner and go straight for the File areas.

Good luck and happy BBS'ing!!
