The facts are, he's either going to call from a python module with
parameters, or use a command line call(whether it's windows, or
linux), or maybe he can type in 'python docs sound' into google, or go
through a ctypes(which I can reference, and find an example of.

Those are the facts.

The assumption is that they're going to use oneof the usual methods,
and I'm giving a VARIETY of factual options available.

What are you doing other than pointing out my comments are out of
context, when they clearly are in context.

All you can do is point out some it's out of context, when it's all in
context, and that is a fact.

Want to help them with how to ask a question...Quit saying give us an
OS, and some short blurb about how I'm answering out of context, and
point them to this link:
