shareage? are we in a yahoo serious film?

seriously though - while a good idea, the owner/hoster of the rep
would have to police it to make sure copyrighted content wasn't being
uploaded, and if it was they could get hit by the riaa. a solution
could be to have a link to one of the cc sites out there. but letting
a user use any sound file as a ringtone is a fine idea.

i like the suggestion of allowing an offset to be specified as well,
so i can head straight to the chorus of 'baby one more time' when the
phone rings
