Hello Orcan!

Yeah, hey man! Glad to see you around :)

I don't mind that much, except the BSD style. 
Thinking about it I think we shouldn't try to automatically change it. I'm thinking it could do just as much damage as good..

Er, about coding... ahem... 'style' ?
Ah well, it's just personal taste - I learned from Mr. Borland's manuals !

Hey awesome! Who's the genius? Well, hello Albert ! He he...

Hey ya!

Hey we share the same goals. 'Specially that [yawn] sleep thing...

I should be recording material but so many delays...

BTW what guitar(s) do you have? And do you have an amp or
 do you use software (Guitarix etc) and a regular stereo?

Just a heads up for those reading this:
I'm fixing some long-time stupid midi stuff in MusE.
Like for example...
Having to rec-arm a midi track just to hear anything coming in.
Too much midi-out traffic when adjusting (N)RPN controls.

Can't say too much more for fear of jinxing it, but I'm also working
 on finally getting MusE to accept hi-res controller input (RPN etc.),
 and finally adding midi automation to the strips, just like audio strips.
And much more. Should be soon for some of this stuff... Wish me luck.

Knock on wood! Sounds good Tim, just don't work yourself into an early grave :)
