Randy,
Look, everyone else either just types their own new message first before 
including the quote to which they're replying or, if they're as methodical 
as you seem to prefer to be, they do the snippet thing, which I think is 
sometimes helpful. But I don't think there's any discussion about the basic 
thing. Just read your messages, and you'll immediately see that everyone 
types their own new message first. Nobody starts a post by reproducing the 
message to which they're replying. You may enjoy that ordering better, and 
so please, just go ahead and do what you like to do. But it's your trip, 
here, not a common alternative, please realize. I'm not talking about the 
wider world of mailing list etiquette, where these things do vary, somewhat,

although actually I'm on a bunch of lists and no one ordinarily puts the 
quoted message first. But whatever, as/like theysay.

As for the Quinn, JB and PBB, no, that may explain who your personal Quinn 
is, and what PBB stands for, although I have no idea what that is unless 
it's about guide dogs for the incarcerated blind-- is it?-- and it doesn't 
explain anything at all about Jeb, unless you're friends with the former 
governor of Florida.

Anyway, carry on. I am glad to hear there have been so many covers of Quinn 
the Eskimo, but all I wanted to do was check my memory that it was a Dylan 
song originally, and so it is. If you still listen to Dylan at this stage of

your life and his career, may I recommend Modern Times. Lots of good stuff 
on there.

Jeb? Incarcerated guide dogs?

system. You don't say whether it's connected to a
serious audio system, or
if you just use the computer like a sort of boom box?
This is stuff I'm

** I have a reasonable speaker system but I've taken
to using Wireless headsets and a Blue Tooth keyboard
such that I can listen/work throughout my home as I do
various tasks.  I find this particularly useful for
listening to tutorials as well as enjoying my music.

Anyway, I hope you post whatever you discover about
whether or not to
upgrade, so I'll know more about all this.

**  I try to share as appropriate but there is no
substitute  for folks making their own research so the
learning and decisions best match their individual
situations.

**  As for the choice to include your portion of the
reply above, I snipped it to be efficient but wished
to ensure the list had a reference for the reply since
the topic has various questions.  There's many forms
of quoted reply and many varied opinions.  I hope I
snipped enough to trouble you less and still retain
the clarity I prefer.

topic aspects ***

heard, but don't I remember that it's a Dylan tune,
actually? Maybe it's on
one of the basement tape collections? Always liked
that song. What's this
Jeb and PB thing?

** Dylan did originate the tune on the basement tapes
and roughly 50 other folks did versions including the
Manford Mann hit you recall.  Quinn is my Guide from
Guiding Eyes for the Blind and he was raised in the
Puppies Behind Bars Program which explains  both GEB
and PBB.  Fame?  Well I sure can wish that he's gonna
live forever... ;-)

Also, is it at all possible for you to fix your email
program so that your
own new message can appear first, above the one to
which you're responding?
It's a bit of a hassle having to arrow down through my
own quoted message
and headers and stuff to finally find what it is
you've written.

Thanks.

But that's me, and I'm really not skilled with this
stuff. What about you?
How come you wouldn't just switch to WMP 11 in order
to learn  more skills
using this guide? Because you've heard it's awful, or
because you have some
kinds of settings that involved a lot of time and
labor to make, and they
won't transfer to the upgrade? Or..?


Good questions and I'm certainly very interested on
the topic.  I upgraded several months  previously and
found the new version scrambled  my Library and was
generally harder for me to use.  I didn't invest a lot
of time because the upgrade was actually an
inadvertent  upgrade which after a limitted amount of
exploration was one I rolled back.  There are several
things I'd like to add to my abilities with WMP 10 but
having not seen anything sufficiently enticing about
WMP 11 I stayed with the comfort and function I had
with WMP 10.

Now I've toured the guide in a very limitted fashion
and while I find it has promise I want to study it a
bit further before I decide whether or not I might
upgrade again.  Presently what I most want is enhanced
library manipulation skills for my reasonably large
collection of CDs now entirely stored on the computer.
