Probably not but seems the email I sent to all of the candidates has 
certainly gotten some attention and the person in charge of the HRM 
Libraries is contacting OverDrive to see what can be done. Basically 
OverDrive sees the issue with being able to deliver copy protected WMA 
files and that there is no Linux version of WMP (like thats ever going 
to happen). Far as I know, can't mplayer play .wma files?
