I sent the session directory to Paul a few days ago for him to see what
was happening, but haven't heard back.  I don't know if that's a good
sign or not.

Check out the website I've been cobbling together.  It will never be

My blog, with commentary on a variety of things, including audio,

Staat heißt das kälteste aller kalten Ungeheuer.  Kalt lügt es auch;
