Let me see if I understand what happened here. Tom posted a message with an
attachment. Some members who apparently don't know how to configure their
e-mail program to not follow HTML links and stuff got mad at Tom because
they didn't like the music that was attached. They proceed to take up tons
of bandwidth flaming him because of their ignorance. I guess I messed the
attachment because my sound card is plugged into a box for running RTTY &
PSK. I would have to flip a switch if I wanted to hear it, but if I did
hear it I am sure it would affend me no more that the fancy HTML fonts,
ASCII graphics and paragraph long signature files that many members of the
group use.  Get a grip folks.
