	the only non-"legal" mp3s i keep are the tracks so rare i CAN'T 
buy the cd. if the RIAA wants on me for that, they'd better start 
reprinting long-recalled & limited edition discs.

	but i've been wondering: if you own a cassette, is it legal to 
download the tracks from it in mp3? is it the music, or the quality of the 
music/ease of playing it?

	well, because my laptop is a win98 machine i use maybe twice a 
year. but you're right, i could record it straight from cd into the box; 
i'm not sure why i thought the extra cassette step would be necessary. i 
suppose because that's how i did it the last time i recorded a track 
manually... which was in 1996.

	i'll keep everyone informed if i find a way.
