This morning, I somehow managed to download a text file containing the http addresses of a series of files that made up an out-of-print guitar course I had been looking for for many years. Lo and behold, the links were all good, and I've got my hands on a virtual copy of this old, old course.

Now I've got no idea how it happened. I don't know how I found the text file, and I haven't been able to find it again since this morning.

So, I've been trying to figure out how anyone ever finds anything from RapidShare.

I understand that they don't have their own search engine, because of all the problems it could entail.

But I can't find a decent search engine for it at all--at least one that isn't trying to get money and can actually provide results.

What's the best way to find things in RapidShare?

Yeah, I tried Googling, but you don't know what to believe with those results.

I just wanted to hear what was worthwhile from a real human being, you know?

So, is that a good search engine?

By the by, I think I got those txt files from EBOOK30.com somehow.

Well, I have used it to find Rapidshare items I need. As to if it is good or not, I do not have a comparison to draw on. I suppose it is good if it delivers what you need and it is crap if not!

Of course I should add that downloading copyrighted materials without the express written permission of the copyright holder is naughty and I do not condone this behavior!

Of course, I'm sure he's only using rapid share to download linux distros :wink:

Question asked and answered. I'm locking the thread before anyone gets themselves into trouble.
