I actually don't have a clue what they're sharing. I've never seen
them using it and I've never even heard them playing any music. I'm
just giving them a bicycle of similar quality to the one they've lost:
it's up to their father to make sure they ride it in accordance with
the traffic regulations and don't use it for beating other kids over
the head. :-)

reassurance by inviting people to check the originating IP in my
headers out as being part of a dialup block, or by working myself up
into the mood to produce one of my rants about how dead and chewed I
think lossy compression is...
