A now defunct file sharing system. Audiogalaxy was somewhat unique in that the user did not download a entire program to transfer files, but rather a small program called the "Satellite." Users went to the Audiogalaxy website and added files they wished to download by clicking on links. The requests were transferred to the "Satellite" for downloading at the earliest possible time. Transfers to and from users were anonymous, and the "Satellite" used very little memory and system resources. It became popular to let the "Satellite" run all night in hopes of getting those rare files that only a few people had.
I downloaded some pretty good stuff off of Audiogalaxy last week, then today I went and bought the CDs.
