Happy New Year! Happy New Year!

We congratulate you on the New Year 2004! We wish you all the luck, happiness, worldwide peace, fresh air, clear sky, hot sun and a whole lot of other goodies, including powerful computers and newest information from all over the world (you know at least one source of it, don’t you? He he :)

We at Digit-Life.com and iXBT.com hope that as our readers you had some good time browsing these pages and want to tell you just one thing – stay tuned people, there’s more to come!

Called "Flute — New Year Jungle Remix 2004", the original track© was created by Grigory Liadov (grigory@ixbt.com), while the New Year Jungle mix© was done by Maxim Liadov (maxim@ixbt.com).

There are three versions — small, normal, and optimal (the latter is naturally recommended). We RARred the tracks to speed up your download):
