Hi again gents,
I have got Goldwave, and have saved a sound file - but it's 10MB! I can't include that in a route can I!! :mad: How can I compress it, using Goldwave of another program, to get it to a more respectable file size?

Thanks for your help,

Open your file, File > Save As, and select a different format from the Attributes dropdown box. Take backups and use trial and error.

How did I know it would be Tom Beevers to reply to this...:p

Cheers Tom, will try that. :)

EDIT: Done, I managed to get them down to about 50kb! :D

Tell me about it! (I'm in top set for maths, and don't even know what algebra is. What the f*ck is a simletaneous equation...? :mad: )

Simultaneous equations are a piece of excreted fluid once you 'get' them. Just rearranging and jiggling the equations around a bit. But then things always seem that way after you've been doing them for several years. Now the Binomial Theorem...

What school/colege do you go to mate? (I assume you live in Manchester, going of your avatar and name...) ?

There's hardly any maths in AS Physics though... just a bit using the suvat equations.

I am thinking of doing Physics at 6th Form, but I am not doing Maths! However, my Mum's friend who is a Computer Scientist says you can't do A level Physics without Maths.

Depends - if you're thinking of doing one of the sciences at Uni., you *really* need to keep up the maths. On the other hand, at least in my day (pre-Cambrian), you could do A-level Physics on O level maths, so you might be ok. Don't know what they teach you at GCSE these days though.
