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.
