yeah.  even if you don't play any games, winex is *worth* 5 bucks a
month because:

a) it's a worthy cause
b) it *really* dumbs down configuring wine.  i'm happy being dumb about

yeah, that's a good point.

tell you what.  the guy who answered my question wasn't REALLY clear
about it.  maybe you can glean some info which i glossed over.

i had posted a message about the "cd stomper pro".  i was able to design
CD jewel case covers and CD artwork, but i couldn't get it to print.  i
posted a message in one of the forums about it, and got one or two
responses.   it should still be there.  i don't remember what their
search utility is like, but hopefully they'll have something which will
allow you to find my post and peoples' responses.

look for +cd +stomp +printer in the support forum.  it was about ....

let me know about your progress.  i'm interested.
