    Just checking in to see what's up. Seems quiet these days on Fidonet.

    Seems like everybody do watching till someone other shows up, haha.

    Let's see if this gets any attention (considering that most people are just "listening") LOL

    I put together an audio quiz for Y'ALL:


    The short url = https://tinyurl.com/y3jxndbw

    It is a mashup of 7 intros of tunes, the 8th being a reprise of the 1st
    sample. Total time, 3 minutes.

    Can you name the Artist, and the specific recording? All tunes are from
    the same recording.

    I tried to select "distinctive" opening riffs and cutoff the sample right before the vocal starts. Lyrics would make the quiz way too
    easy and too tempting to cheat with google.

    I'll drop a clue or two later.

    The original 320 kbps .mp3 file is about 7MB.
    I have produced two more versions of the file and generated short urls:

    128 kbps, 2.9MB - https://tinyurl.com/y2d7jj27
    64 kbps, 1.5MB - https://tinyurl.com/y6zzutez

    ...both still in stereo.

    Hope you can give them a listen!
