    His name is Steven Horowitz, and he's a former Napster user.
    Step one on the path to recovery is, of course, confession.
    "I probably had about 400 files or so on my computer," he said. "I wasn't an everyday user; for me it was more of a convenient service than anything. I was able to get songs you couldn't get anywhere else. I didn't think much at that time on the moral implications, more just the copyright argument, such as whether I had rights to music that can't be purchased elsewhere."

This Week in Temple History
September 13, 1973

    The Temple Times reported that the University will have a Center City address. The building at 1619 Walnut St., which formerly housed the KYW television and radio stations, was given to Temple and was already in use.
The Law School, the colleges of Liberal Arts, Education and Music and the School of Business Administration began exploring and developing courses at the new campus.
    In May 2001, William E. Parshall, the new director of Temple University Center City, announced that the campus was moving to 1515 Market St. Parshall said the decision to move was made because the campus needed more modern classroom space.
    He also said the technological capabilities of the new location would be much better than what was available at 1616 Walnut St.
