    Radio Bumper


    I was really nervous for this assignment–just like the last one–but once I got going it was really easy–also like the last one.  I just used an O.A.R song, “Living in the End,” I had in my iTunes, loaded it directly into Audacity, cut to the beginning (there were …

    Easy week.  Made the new email domain of [email protected]… amusing address.  Haven’t received a single email from it.  I also installed the anti-spam program but hadn’t received any spam before that so I’m not sure how necessary it was.
