How wonderful!

But in general, we on this list do not post our (lengthy) projects
to each other. A simple (short) example of a solution to a problem =

someone has asked about - that's OK.  But complete patchers such =

as yours are usually dealt with in the following fashion:

- make an annnouncement of what is is; then provide a means of
downloading it, i.e.
        a) your website
        b) uploading it to an appropriate directory at IRCAM

Imagine if I should just choose to suddenly broadcast my latest
4mb Max project, which plays back exactly Marilyn Manson's entire
last album, except with taste added and in reverse/retrograde, =

to everyone on the list.

Make an announcement; provide a means to get it. If people are
interested, they will download it.  Otherwise, you are wasting
our time and bandwidth by sending many hundreds of people your
project which they expressed no interest in receiving.

I beg y'all's pardon for thoughtlessly shoving my entire project TWICE
onto the newsletter.

Stephen Kay gently reproached me, and I certainly see his point.

Markov was, if I recall correctly, Orm Finnendahl's work. I don't know
that he's had much time to hack Max recently, so 68k may be the only
option. I would send you his e-mail, but I see that the entry in my
address book is out of date. You can probably find it by looking for his
current affiliation (Institut f=FCr Neue Musik, Hochschule der K=FCnste
Berlin) in Alta Vista.

Hope this is of some help,
