I don't ride while listening to MP3s. It's dangerous. I like to hear
traffic. Why must we continue this, again?

I said I had to go to Windows to install stuff on a Palmtop. I'm barely
using Windows. It's sort of on topic, I guess, but it's really a

No. I'm just trying to stop these tit for tats before they get out of
control. There's no point in discussing a decision I've made and won't
change my mind on.

I didn't think anything of it when I mentioned it. I saw it as an aside.
It wasn't in the subject line. It wasn't the object of discussion. It was
just a side fact.

No guilt here. I use the right tool for the right job. So I'm happy and
don't need to justify why I bought what I bought.

But that wasn't the question. It was just something I shouldn't have
thrown in, apparently.

But it's kind of pointless when I already have the device in hand and am
only asking about encoding.

"Going on"? I just mentioned as an aside that that's what I ended up with.
I think the main reason I mentioned it was to say that I got a device that
can play MP3s, thus now I'd like to start recording these streams. Nothing

I did investigate. And I chose Pocket PC.
