Boo hoo. What a shame. I is so so sad. [dabbing teary eyes]. Breaks my heart. Oh dear, whatever shall I do with my old Liquid Audio player now? (File it alongside my old 8-track tapes and RCA CED laserdiscs I guess). "Thtwweerrrpppp!" [blowing nose] Sure am glad I wasn't one of their shareholders. Actually, this ought to serve as a wakeup call to all the purveyors and makers of DRM-inhibited music-files, including those by M$. L.A. : R.I.P. -- Mike --
