For some reason, I am having two problems with MP3 files, and I suspect they
are all the fault of my computer.  First, the song will be interrupted by
silent spaces, which is very frustrating.  I can't get the song to play
continuously.  Second, if I get your song in MP3 off a website page, my MP3
player pops up in the middle of it and knocks me back into my Outlook
Express List.  I can't seem to run the song, minimize it, and get back to
the page in any smooth way.  I've heard you sing before, Steg, and I love
your voice.  I just wish I could hear it uninterrupted!

Does anybody have a clue what's wrong with my system?  (It's the MP3 that
comes automatically with
What download would you suggest I get?  How do get a program that will both
record and play MP3 files?
