Isn't that a file downloaded from gnutella? No, I'm sorry it was the 
album I bought from a music store.

What every muso wants is a license that says. "You are free to 
distribute this and play it in a commercial setting but if you make any 
money out of it that is taxable then your govt should give me some of 
the revenue because I made it possible for them to make a lot more money 
than they give me."

Unfortunately we can't trust governments to play fair so we will almost 
always loose out.

So now the question is who is willing to pay their taxes? I guess 99% of 
the musos I know don't want to.

Apparently upon the beginning of the barrage, the donkey broke 
discipline and panicked, toppling the cart. At that point, the rockets 
disconnected from the timer, leaving them strewn around the street. 
Tethered to the now toppled cart, the donkey was unable to escape before 
the arrival of U.S. troops.
