I started lurking on harp-l in late 1996, started posting in 1997,
and by mid-1998 -- with a crappy job and not much else to occupy my
time in the office -- I was the top poster. Not something I'm
particularly proud of. It's hard to hear others if you're the one
talking all the time. Still, I managed to learn a lot, and mostly
learned to shut up and play, and when I can't play, listen to others.

I give my XB-40 about 80-85%. Funny, I have an easier time making
all the overbends than just getting a straight 10 hole blow on my XB-
40. I'm spending my time on the former, the XB is spending a lot of
time in the box.
