Somehow I can just picture your eyes alight in ecstasy

Could these audio files be doctored to include uniques

"Could" is most likely not the right word ;o)

Anyway, think you get my drift. Just something else to
ponder and maybe a design consideration for this type

incorporated to limit access until after the submittal
period? Then how would computer crashes or "gaps in
the tape" situations be adjudicated?

Ahhhh, the sweet smell of technology!
