Do it the mortal way

As I was playing on Donkey Konga last night (with Paul's bongos and Stefan's Gamecube - there's sharing for you) I was half listening in to a conversation between John and our friend Sean. I heard John say something like "Do you have broadband?.... right, well, I can't send you MP3s... hmm... I don't see any way I can get the music to you then". He put the phone down, and joined me playing Donkey Konga, which I used to think was called Donkey Bongos - a much better name for it I think.

Anyhow, I digress... About an hour later, John had a brainwave. How did people send other people music in the olden days? I remember! They used the Royal Mail to send things made out of paper called envelopes and they actually put things in them. Like CDs. How quaint. John phoned Sean back to inform him he was going to send the music on a CD the Mortal Way. Karen answered the phone to give the address and such and such, so I hope Sean isn't too shocked to receive non-electronic correspondance. Apparantly it can take upwards of 24 hours for a parcel to get delivered. The olden days were hell - I really don't know how we put up with it.
