For those of you who categorize according to subject, how do you define the=
 actual subject? Most of my recordings can fit into at least several easily=
 identifiable subject categories, i.e. birds, rain forest ambience, insects=
, water, etc, simultaneously. Thus far my folders are arranged by location,=
 but that requires a lot of memory on my part. So if someone asks if I have=
 any train sounds I need to know to look in the Australia, Germany, France =
& Massachusetts folders. I try to name WAV files with meaningful descriptiv=
e titles, & I wonder if perhaps appending some additional relevant sorting =
tags to the titles would be all that is needed for good OSX searches. So in=
stead of "Stream-Zakopane-Poland" it would be "Stream-Zakopane-Poland-Alpin=
e Forest Ambience-Birds BG" or some such.
