That's music to my ears...;-)

I can replace the spaces with '_' and upload the files 
again but my connection isn't very fast. It's probably 
easier to just rename the files in the /music dir. This will 
have to be corrected by someone with full rights on the 
ftp site however.

Ogg is indeed better suited for those low bandwidth 
rates, better than MP3. I can probably do a lowend 
version of the files in 64Kbps later in the week. That 
would reduce the size by a factor of 3 (10Mb).
