Well as you say, Fred, to each his own. That's an interesting way to
structure your collection.

The whole CD-driven music market left a bad flavor in my mouth after I
bought five or six hundred of them. I still buy CDs, but they're immediately
ripped into artist folders and live in a box thereafter.

I guess the point is the difference between how you and I see our
collections. Track numbers are how you navigate and know where you're at.
The song title is the important navigational bit to me. Interesting.

Even so, the track number based approach wouldn't work for me, as my 30GB of
mp3 files live on my in-house server, which gets used by the other five
adults living here. They don't know track numbers any better than I do, but
they can snag a song by name now and then.

But I guess we're way off course. Fun to see a different way, though.
