It works! It works! Given all of eternity, and even a couple of years

Chris for getting back to my personal request so soon, for using language I
could understand, and for making the process available to the IRTRAD group.

Subject: Slowing down tunes in Winamp
>Hi folks! Happy Thanksgiving to you all! Now I apologize for posting

>Here's what you need to do:
> First you must have already encoded the tune from CD to MP3 format
