Thomas, 

You should post this hear, as it's just as relevant ;)

Hey guys, how do you feel now that you all owe Thompson $2k per year?
Vorbis look more interesting now :)

It's really disgusting how the technology is now worth more than the
music.

jack.

My comment is that the licensecharge isnt frighting compared
to what we broadcaster pays in musicroyalties allready. Is this
what you feared jack? :)

I'D LIKE TO BE BURIED INDIAN-STYLE, where they put you up on a high rack,
above the ground.  That way, you could get hit by meteorites and not even
feel it.
