Thanks. I'm a big fan of ancient software, since I value stability very highly. My main Linux Audio laptop is running 0.103 and I haven't reconfigured it since May 2007. I like it like that.

However, I'm setting up a new PC which requires support for new hardware (i.e. Firewire), so now the goal is to get whatever works, working, and then hopefully not change it for many years afterwords :-)
