Lyle Serious BS: HFA/NMPA Round 2 (135* d) RE: Serious BS: HFA/NMPA Round 2 08 Nov 99

I hate to look at worst case scenarios until it is absolutely necessary, so this is (I hope) premature. But possibly the worst case is not as bad as it seems. The only thing that they could make mudcat do is remove the lyric archive from the current format of mudcat. That could be inconvenient, but not fatal. Most of us who use the mudcat have large enough machines to download all of the archived lyrics, and still have lots of room to spare. Then if someone wants the lyrics to a particular song, all that person has to do is start a thread asking if anyone knows the lyrics, and those of us who have downloaded the file could email it to the person requesting it. There is NOTHING wrong with sending lyrics to a friend! We could even simplify that by having one person be responsible for the As, one for the Bs, etc. Is it ideal? No, but it is certainly better than no mudcat at all.
