Hi Wayne,

The hard work is not the big problem, since after all job is done, I should
have a system that can work for years.
But... let me know if importing audio data really works fine.
I have some 60GB of audio data but I don't bother to start a new database
from scratch. My Rivendell 2.10.3 works fine, but working on a netbook with
1024x600 is just like watching the world through a submarine hatch. xD
