    Well, as much as I might like being stranded with Marjorie and 
    Anselm, I wouldn't like leaving something like music choices to 
    chance. What about all those terrific pre-CD albums: Stan Hamilton, 
    Berkeley Players, Jimmy Blue, Jim Johnstone, etc...
    
    Problem is, there are sooo many wonderful recordings that it would be 
    easier for me to pick 3 not to bring than to leave all of the rest of 
    my music behind. I would opt for something about the same size as a 
    stack of 3 standard jewel cases--a 60 gigabyte external drive with 
    all my music in mp3 format. The original challenge implicitly assumed 
    that a CD player, amplification and electricity were available, so I 
    would replace the CD player and amplifier with an mmx notebook PC 
    with internal speakers (which could also play your 3 CD's if you got 
    stranded with me).
    
    Happiness is ALL of my music. :)))
    
    Cheers, Oberdan.
