Getting a check from Peter Gabriel is pretty f'ing cool.

One thing that is helping in this regard is the Mac build and the
SAE support of it. My son, who is a freshman music major at university
now, is a very typical student. His computer of choice is a MacBook,
and he wants to do a little more with it than Garb^HageBand will
allow him to. His answer, and one he's telling his friends about,
There's plenty of stuff happening with getting some name recognition
out there. It's just not a fast process.
