MessageI will take snow over rain and ice. Here in buffalo, new York, in 
February, there's so much ice and it sort of sneaks up on you.

  I'll take rain right now because the snow sticks around and just sits there. 
But there is a gentleness to snow as long as it falls in moderation. About 2 
inches is my personal maximum. But in Wisconsin, many storms produce more than 
that. Smile.
  Now I'm catching up on some of the pod casts reviewing some of the machines. 
I got through some of your Olympus 320 m review today. Do you like the newer 
model better than the 200 series? You also mentioned something that I may have 
misunderstood. I thought I heard you say the 320 didn't come with the software 
needed to have your computer recognize it as a drive. Since I was at work, I 
may have misunderstood you.
  Thanks for your help with these questions.

    We've got rain here in the San Jose, California area; not real heavy yet, 
but I've been in and out a few times today and it's wet, regardless of how 
heavy the rain is! Would you rather have that than snow?

    I've spent a fair amount of cash on this podcasting hobby, more than I 
probably should, and it's a relief that the recorders and software don't break 
easily although I've heard of people who, unfortunately, ended up with 
defective machines, through no fault of their own. I'm on pre-retirement leave 
and living on savings for a year, so it's a relief to know the out-flow of cash 
for podcasting is finished, at least I hope so. Once you get your equipment, 
you can settle back and just start learning to use it. There will always be 
features you won't need; that's true with software and equipment, but the 
easiest thing to do is learn what you need as you go, and take time to do it 
enough that it becomes second nature. The neat thing about digital recorders is 
there's no tape and you can just pick up the machine and push record and if 
everything is set up correctly, you can just start. But most of these machines 
don't have extensive editing capability, so for that you have to upload the 
file to the PC and use a sound editor of some type.
