Morning Mary,
At work we still have an older version of the Windows Media Player and whenever 
I would load up a podcast, it would start out at the wrong pitch and then 
gradually speed up.  I'd never had that problem before so it took me quite by 
surprise.  Now, I simply wait for it to get itself together.  

Things should be a lot better, though, because we're in the process of 
upgrading the classroom to Windows XP and Windows Media Player 10.  

Way cool about your perfect pitch.

We also had a munchy Christmas.  Too much of everything left, though.  Will 
definitley have to do more walking.  <smile>

  I'm glad I'm not imagining this crazy speed up and slow down stuff. I assume 
you have perfect pitch or something close to it; me too, and it drives me crazy 
when something like that happens. Funny though, I can turn off my perfect pitch 
and listen to something and have no idea what key it's in, or what chords are 
being played. Some people are stuck with it though, like it or not, and can't 
control it. I entertain myself when attending some long boring thing (company 
luncheons, for example, or even high school band concerts where the choir had 
only one song to sing) and pay attention to the chord sequences, just to see if 
they'd change the key in the middle of something, or if some instrument would 
goof up really bad. It was one way of staying awake.
