Yes, I am quite familiar with Audacity.  I use it to do occasional
podcasts (I even used it for doing voice-overs of a TV show's intro
for a group project - it was amazingly simple) for my college and I
think that their work is excellent. I look eagerly forward to their
1.3 final release.

It was also noted in Computer Shopper (maybe the mag you're thinking
of?) and there was nothing but glowing praise for it.  Again, another
testimony to their superior work.

I will keep that in mind, but fortunately the work of integrating
Mozilla with wxWidgets has mostly been accomplished by a few fine
gentlemen (their work can be found at http://wxmozilla.sourceforge.net
) - the problem for me has always been the process of building
Mozilla/Firefox itself on a Windows box.  The building process allows
but does not encourage MinGW builds.  They don't officially seem to
support the build, thus using their Gecko for other open-source
products becomes difficult.  But, thanks to Jason Turner I have
managed to, maybe, compile against a version of mozilla that he has
provided on the wxMozilla website.  Thanks for the pointers, though!
