Glad I could be of help

5 years ago now I pressed a record, called the "Future Farmers EP" for my label CornWarning. Apparently the label art confused someone in France, because they list the artist as "Grant Wood"

The picture in question was one taken by John Barry in Stone City, Iowa, of Grant Wood and John Steuart Curry. Melissa and I bought the print at a gallery in Cedar Rapids right after Barry died, and it's been on our wall for years. I thought it was an awesome thing to put on a record label, so my boy Matt scanned it -- through the glass, still in the frame, and incorporated it into the label.

Anyway it's awesome that Grant Wood has a career in techno after all these years.

Wood and Curry -- not my picture, but 2 others by John Barry

Computer Questions for which Google has failed me

1. Is Windows Vista capable of using Windows XP drivers?
2. Is there a list of devices supported by Windows Vista Beta 1 out of the box?
3. Is their a list of hardware manufacturers who have Vista drivers available?
4. Is there any advantage or disadvantage to having both a wired and wireless network connection active at the same time -- on Windows??

Believe me, someone must be trying to hide the answers -- I spend a lot of time searching the web and I thought I had it down.
