Ray,

This looks interesting and some of the skins are great.  I love the Vintage Radio one.

Can you explain something to me?  Assuming as I am that the software is free, what\'s in it for the developer?  I don\'t see any adverts on the site, as far as I\'ve looked anyway.  Are these people in it for the challenge or do they wear the cloak of altruism, or both?

Maybe they\'re like K and do it because they are nice...hard to believe, but there are still some out there :)

Nice and community minded eh! Jan. I understand this \"share-ware\" concept offers all sorts of possibilities to parties involved. Not unlike couch-surfing perhaps?

Yup, it\'s freeware.  The developer makes money by licensing the audio library he built (BASS) for commercial projects.
I\'ve been using XMPlay for years and it\'s the best audio player ever since Winamp became all bloated.

Be sure to try the update to the WMA plugin I listed above as it allows you to listen to \"Listen Again\" streams with seeking.

Whoop-ee-do! The other day, I got the option to upgrade my VLC, to cure a problem. I now no longer have to copy to clip board and open VLC from there. Now, I can clip on the links in Beebotron 3 Lite. It tries to open the WMPlayer, but then opens VLC and starts to play - just like the old days!

Well I\'ll be darned! I believe the little guy worked, Ive!  

My husband discovered our next-door neighbor has an illegal antenna on the corner of his house which is about thirty-feet from my window. This has been causing severe interference with B*stards wireless card (which is pretty old). So we took a trip to Radio Shack and picked up some CAT5 Ethernet cable and hooked me up directly to the router. So far so good! I haven\'t had any dropped programs since he plugged it in. So the problems on my side are solved....I think :)

Hey, you should save Mr. Wizard for future needs....or maybe go drop a C Note ($100) on a horse named Wizard at Santa Anita (or your equivalent) :)

Thanks Buddy! ;)

Doesn\'t the Second Amendment give you the right to target practice on illegal antennae?

I\'ll ask Della.

\"Hey, Honey, Is this my page?\"

Apparently, it is.

\"While you\'re up, would you get me a mug of java?\"

I suppose I could, but buying the cord was much easier. I\'m a lousy shot. I can open a can of whup-a*s with my cane though! B)-  
(I got serious Old Lady Ken-do skills!)

No Java. Paul Drake forgot to bring home the goods ;)
