Re: Bookmarks in Winamp

Thanks much Alan.
i'll test on my school laptop now. I try to create some time markers
now in my talking books and explore my laws settings afterwards to
locate winamp time markers. I'll copy on my flash drive to test on my
home pc after school.

thanks again for your patience with me.
