Hello, i’ve heard your four tracks at mp3.com and must say that they are
really beautiful. i think that’s the kind of instrumental music i’ve
ever waited for! so are there any more songs of you since today. i
would be very happy! here in germany it is not very easy to get in
contact with smaller bands from the usa. so how can i get releases of
you? best regards,
Names have been omitted to protect the innocent. You gotta love an email like that though. And I know that if I tried to write in German it would most certainly come out a lot funnier than this.
I’ve been seeing lots of talk about the recent release of Amazon.com’s Web Services API. Google released an API a few months back and lots of cool stuff came out as a result. It’ll be interesting to see what people do with these tools.
Apple releases OS X 10.2 (Jaguar), 17″ flat-panel iMac, new iPods, iTunes 3, etc. today.
