The problem is that filling a support list with these kind of
discussions distracts the users that want to get help/help others on the

Sounder has been created for that purpose. Using the ubuntu-users list
for the sole reason that there's nobody on "the other list" is
convenient for you, but an inconvenience you're happy to contribute for

that's why sounder was created. Please have respect for fellow
ubuntu-users subscribers.
