turn your firewall off when you try to use limewire, though with the amount of viruses limewire contains, its not recommended

  1. You’ll have to use direct downloads.

    Places to start:

    Music: http://www.sipifi.com/mp3/

    Games, no idea. I recommend you get a rapidshare.com account too. It’s cheap (even for a student 😉 ) and you’ll need it for direct downloads.

  2. I don’t think there’s any way around it. You can try to use a proxy, it might work, their also a real pain to get setup.

    As for songs off of limewire. Don’t use it if you can’t get to it. Download your music off of here:

    http://skreemr.com/

    Yes, they don’t have all the music in the world, but it isn’t a bad selection 😛

    To save the file after you’ve searched, simple right file the link labeled ‘File:’ and ‘save as..’ to wherever on your computer.
