Re: A/B listening tests

i hope i haven't stepped on anybody else's toes, too...
mark (and above all: samba) please accept my apologies if i have 
it this time.
i am really glad to be in this list and i appreciate the work and the 
seriousness of the participating members.
the night i wrote my message i had had some really good wine and just 
away for fun.
hence the starting line ending with "please forgive me".

yes, i was mocking, but i didn't mean my words to sting, didn't mean to 
or vibe anybody.
i'll be a little more careful from now on.

peace - tilmann
