I can post myself.  Thanks for the offer.  Yes Finale has MIDI.  There 
is a problem with some though as to layers.  If I have an accidental in 
one layer and the next layer uses the same note which carries the 
accidental in the previous layer, in the same measure, then by music 
nomenclature I don't have to repeat the accidental but the note plays 
wrong.  My music is full of that kind of stuff.  So if I post MIDI I 
will have clashing accidentals.  Maybe some don't have this problem and 
I'll start weeding them out.

I also found out last night that I can post in wav. format.  Do most 
people have the ability to hear that?

Bravery?  How could this possibly scare me?  It's just the time.  I've 
got a business and family life.  A little at a time.
