I also have a large collection of CDs. A large advantage I've found
having my own downloaded collection though is that when I feel like
listening to music I can organise a "Playlist" in the likes of Winamp
etc. featuring many different Performers with various musical items.
Have you transferred then to your digital media? some of my
collection consists of music recorded to cassette recorded from FM
radio stations that were primarily commercial free broadcast from
collages in the Boston area. I have a huge jazz library which is what
I mostly listen to now. Also some blues from several decades ago or
should I say a half century.
I've been downloading binaries off and on since 1992, although I've only
been with Astraweb since 2007.

Currently I have 38.7GB of music which in addition to the already
mentioned, my collection also includes country music & folk music
largely dominated by the likes of Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Odetta, Pete &
Mike Seeger, Willie Nelson etc, etc.


Not now I'm on Cable a 30GB Broadband Plan, their cheapest plan.
In the past when on dial-up I had to pay extra for excessive downloads.
I will definitely have to start that myself. I rarely have more then
a few minutes to get online these days so I would have to setup some
sort of remote operation. I tried downloading from some of the groups
at one time but somehow I got a lot of unwanted trash so I never kept
it up.

Not sure what you mean by the above. They are on my hard disk E:\drive
which is dedicated to music, as they were when I downloaded them.

Using Astraweb or similar will stop receiving unwanted trash, though I
can't see how a completely remote operation could be implemented.

You would need to go online and download headers of music newsgroups.
Then marking headers for download of music that you think you'll want.
Once that has been done you can walk away and your computer will
continue downloading the files without you having to be in attendance.

Wish you luck with it and hope it works out for you.

Sorry for the misspell. I meant have you transferred them to your
hard drive. Have you put all your CDs in your digital library?

That's it. I can start downloading at night and be done in the
morning. I remember trying that once and that was when I got some
surprises when I looked at what I had.

Thanks.

You should probably take this to: alt.usenet.offline-reader.forte-agent

Its not a Windows issue, the folks at the Forte group are best to ask
methinks.
You are right. Thanks.
