Yeah but it's a real problem to listen to them in the car. :-)

A-MEN. I have CDs that are 10 years old that hold all kinds of weird stuff that 
I've grabbed off the Internet because I was concerned they'd be gone. Sure 
enough, they are, but a lot of it I don't even know I have... It's amazing 
what you find super-important at one instant in time has fallen into obscurity 
the next.
