Still got a few invites left, but from now on if you want one you’ll have to be a bit more imaginitive than just asking. Comment on this post telling me why you should get an invite, and the five most amusing, original, or convincing responses I get by 1200 GMT on Saturday will receive an invite.

I got one bob, and it's cool, but in all honesty there's only so much nat geo and mtv I can watch, so I've not looked a lot.

It kills me that we worked on this stuff over a decade ago and know it is taking off. You know life is unfair, don't you?

no, not really.

I'm more excited about the year long naxos online subscription I got for 20 euros. 5000 classical, world, jazz cds online for a year. Guess I'm a useless beta tester ...

cheers though.

the department I'm in have been doing tests in a local town on a system that looks very similar, for the last 3 years.

big companies have too much inertia to actaully take opportunities, and this happens. It's frustrating sometimes, if you're the kind of person that likes making stuff.

I wouldn't write home about naxos for jazz.

If you are a greedy classical fan, consider Wolfgang-Amadeus-Mozart-Complete-Works/dp/B000BLI3K2

and also the Bach.

naxos jazz catalogue is basically reissues of classic older music which is also available by many other sources. It's not that unusual, but there is lots of good stuff there. Neat to have it available online in the day at work.

a classical url with dp and boobs? I'm there.
