Heck, I learned THAT lesson from using Windows!!  Of course, I was
reminded of that even with Linux after FINALLY getting my Wifi card
working AND reliable audio (without an RT kernel) using the same
configuration.  It's the main reason I'm still using FC 7.  It works
really well, and I just know that an upgrade is going to cause more
problems than it's worth.


Check out the website I've been cobbling together.  It will never be done, but it's a start: 

My blog, with commentary on a variety of things, including audio, mixing, equipment, etc, is at:

Staat heißt das kälteste aller kalten Ungeheuer.  Kalt lügt es auch;
und diese Lüge kriecht aus seinem Munde: 'Ich, der Staat, bin das Volk.'
