Interesting coming from you Roy Schestowitz considering that you wouldn't
even proof read an OSS submission without charging money.
How come it is always the unemployed do nothings that are against other
people getting compensated for their work? I do a lot of studio work and I
am certainly thankful I don't depend upon it to put food on my table
because it is no way to get rich. It's also very difficult, high pressure
work. I do it to keep my chops up and as a favor to some of my friends.
Are you stupid? The musicians and studio techs all got paid for their
work years ago. Don't blur the issue.
