You need to subscribe to a news server. Alot of ISPs have a news server but they don't really advertise it (like mine). Over 400 songs posted in three days!

I'll send you a CD-ROM of them.

PM me your address.

Gotta love the good old-skool UseNet!

Any chance of me scoring a copy?
If so, are you attending "Luau By
The Lake"? I wanted to attend last
year but ended up having to work.
I am thinking of attending this
year. Maybe we could hook up there.
I'll be the one wearing the Hawai-
ian print shirt.

Seeing how I missed this thread the first time around, I'd love a copy of the CD-ROM as well. And if someone will mail me one, I'd be happy to copy it and mail it to someone else who requests it.

can anyone who has downloaded them in their entirety please post an archive somewhere other than usenet?... my ISP has discontinued all usenet access unfortunately (i've spent the past day-an-a-half searching unsuccessfully for a workaround). i'll most certainly post 'em to my ftp server for everyone and anyone given the opportunity!

I just put 53MB worth on my server that you're more than welcome to download
here. Pappy's entire flood takes up more than 750MB, which is quite a bit more than I care to make available at one time.

MrBaliHai--Kudos for making those songs available! The Louis Armstrong tune is especially cool! I'm a Louis fan, but I didn't have that track.

I'm interested in the other songs you have. If you want to make those available sometime I'd be forever grateful. Maybe call it volume two?

I'd be glad to. I'm in London on business this week, so I'll try to get to it when I return to the US. Send me an e-mail reminder if you don't see it in a week or so.
