Re: For Beatles maniacs (you know who you are) ;-)

<r>More goodies, yum!<br/> When George in "While My Guitar ..." says "Sorry, I tried to do a Smokey, but I just aren't Smokey".<br/> I think maybe he means attempting a high-pitched voice, like Smokey Robinson?<br/> <br/> There are Beatles maniacs, for sure, and they are all Beatles fans <E>:)</E><b...

Re: audio files from youtube

<r>Hi Jay,<br/> <br/> Maybe "Audo Recorder for Free" could be what you're looking for to create mp3 files of the sound that is playing on your computer.<br/> I've used an older version for years now, hopefully the current one is just as practical.<br/> <br/> <URL url="http://audio-tool.net/">http://...
