    Feel free to help yourself to my bootlegs, mixtapes etc whilst they're still online, lest Microsoft work out what they're doing:

    It'll all change soon

    I thought that kumo was going to be the new live. New look every week, same poor results. I only used it cos they bribed me....didn't win anything....poor results....went back to google

    Nice to see that www.kumo.com(96.17.77.193) is registered to Microsoft and running Linux (according to netcraft). Ports 22,80,443 and 500 are open if anyone wants a crack at it.
