What did he do?

I guess the thing about all of FZ's band members - especially in the original Mothers - they weren't just sidemembers. They had huge personalities and played such a big part in the early Zappa mythology. It's really sad. Poor Jimmy.

this is really cool
it is part 1 of a CBC radio show

it's REALLY wonderful with extended bits of Ruth and her emotional connection and Gail and her emotional connection. Intense. Delightful to hear these old women talk like teenagers.:P

Vista is on this machine B and it snapped it right up and loaded it automatically in winamp.
I don't know where the system put it .. .:freak:
but I can listen to it. Can't you override the protocol somehow?

Maybe you've got something disabled that we have enabled. But our PC gives us much problems with downloading. It's why I can't upgrade this place.

unfortunately this was sold to me used and 'worked on'. The bugs were worked out supposedly but it allows some things and doesn't others. So I don't know what all it can do. I didn't make it.
As far as the radio show, I'll see if I have a cassette tape and can get it give decent playback.
I can't find the file but can play it. The cassette recorder I have is old and may give a distorted or hissy tape when played back. I'll see.

Oh you really have to take care with secondhanders. I have one. The previous owner left some sensitive information on it.
Vista's security is especially annoying when playing PC games. I spent two days figuring out how to navigate around the password bug in Leisure Suit Larry 5. It never really played Phantasmagoria properly. Ugh.

It also gave me serious problems with college: some teachers publish their text through Internet, and then I couldn't download them with IE, so I needed to use Opera, and then I'd only be able to see the first page...

Firefox works real bad on our PC. We barely use it as it would rend some programs unusable.

I used to use Firefox. It worked just great until - all of a sudden - it stopped working completely. I tried reinstalling; uninstalling; everything short of lighting the computer on fire. All I get is that stupid "We're sorry" window.

So now I use Safari. It's kind of gray and kludgy, but it works.

I live there!
Yeah I'm very excited about it! When they just started out with that You Can't Fit On Stage Anymore stuff, I posted in a reply on their YouTube vid that they could play Effenaar. And they DO!!! Can you believe it? I'll also go to the Amsterdam show with my sister. Not sure about the other date yet, don't know where it is.

Wouldn't that be cool if we could all go to the same show together? Man if I won the Lottery I would at least invite you guys and buy plane tickets. Weather you made it or not would be up to you of course. That would be fun.

Oh yeah... though I have been to the same concerts as other forum members before, and failed to meet them. We'd arranged a Zappa Forum Meeting just before the 2006 Amsterdam show, and every single person who was supposed to be there, forgot about that. I lost track of time when I was talking to a very nice Dweezil fan in the VIP box.
