Re: Interview

>Wow, you're fast.  Interesting read !
I offered it, so have to do it.

Well, I like this style of interview.

Well, the problem is that our sound staff didn´t create any nonmusic
sound. So the problem didn´t arise.

We are just doing what the people want. If someone tells me, that he
wants it running on his machine, then there are two possibilities:
He does is on his own (the sourcecode is always included), or he
gives me the hardware, that I can do it.

Well, I didn´t thought about those problems yet. But I think it is
possible to byte-swap it while reading in.
But isn´t this a thing PenguinFile should do?
