Hi Robbie,

Didn't listen to that yet.

I tend to listen selectively, as the site covers a really very wide range 
of material.

Rick Harmon's reviews are most informative, and Mary Emerson's are also 
worth a listen.

For excellent music, (not to mention interesting contrasts,) check out:

Magnatune Classical:  Mary Emerson. 

Caribbean Calipso Jazz:  andre Louis.    This recording is absolutely 
amazing, and possibly unique -     I’ve never heard steel drums in a jazz 
setting before.  It opens with a  stunning version of "Broadway."

I'm reminded of the first time I saw Breton harpist  and piper Alan 
Stivelle.  the first half of the concert was acoustic folk, with part two 
being rock in which the pipes featured prominently!

 Well folks, I've just been  royally entertained by the Blind CoolTec 
site. Has anyone listened to the Sirius  Stiletto Demo? I can't believe 
that guy. I laughed out loud to the  puzzlement of my colleagues. Some of 
these contributions have more entertainment  than information value.

Hi  Robbie, 

I've no experience of Linuxx   and don't know if you can run both 
operating systems on the one  machine. 

However, take a look at 

I think Linux features have been posted on  both the Blind Cool Tech and 
main Menu sites. 


Hope this helps. 

Keep the blues coming!

Hi  folks! 
I've never had anything to  do with Linux, but need to get  into it 
somehow. Is there a way of familiarising myself  with Linux,  without 
having to wipe Windows off my machine? What would be the  best way  for a 
beginner to approach Linux?I'd also appreciate infos about Orca.  I'm told 
it's an open source speech output. How effective is  it? 
Thanks,  Robbie
