I wouldn't unless it didn't exist.  OTOH, the last time I went shopping for 
a better sound card than the SoundBlaster 16 I had at the time, I wasn't 
even aware of that site.  So I bought an Audigy2 Value, with a 24 bit 
dynamic range, muchly improved over the SB16.  Nothing compared to some 
that is available, usually winders only drivers though, if you bring enough 
sheckles to the register today.

See, it does pay to advertise a URL such as that occasionally.  Its the 
first time I've heard of it since 5 or so years.  And that mention is the 
sort of advertising I tolerate very well indeed.

Cheers, Gene
