How do I? (in Off-topic)

Ok, I found an mp3 online that I want to save to my computer. How do I do this?

I can't find the website it's from, just the mp3 link:

http://aenima.home.comcast.net/GHSdrumline_TOOL.mp3

It's an old file. I'm curious how I go about downloading it :S If it's possible.

just put the link into your web browser if you are using Firefox, if you are using IE just click the save button...

Doesn't work. I go to the link, and the media opens up. I click Save as (save isn't available) and it wants to save the web page, not the file.

(IE)

if your using a different dowloading program like FlashGet. just put the address in the URL and it should work

look up the url in google (yes the full url)
there should then be a link to it, right click and select save.

My suggestion is to download a shareware version of GetRight (www.Getright.com). With it, you can simply insert that URL and it'll download the file. You can also pause and resume.

Right click and 'Save target as'

My suggestion is that someone with such a large TV should not be asking us, how do I save a mp3 on my computer. But besides that, how have you gotten this far into the internet without knowing how to save a file?

I still can't figure out how to make the built in drink holder on my computer to retract. :P

I've beaten the internet... the boss-guy isn't very hard.

Back in the day, I used to have a 56 thousand dollar internet connection.

but maulaxe, how did you get past level 98billion and four?

A little extra shortcut - if you're using IE and an MP3 or MPEG is playing in the browser, especially if it's playing via Quicktime you'll normally find that you have the file in your temporary internet files folders or the cache files. Then just copy it to the folder you want it in.
