No, that's a lie, only some of you.


I couldn't keep up with the constant posting, Rob, so now I just stop in from time to time to give my $0.02 on a subject. Because I know you're all hanging on my every word. Right?

You're only missing a Manchester United game Rob.

That's a good thing, I mean if it was a Manchester City game......

I care even less about Man Utd than I did before, especially given Saints playing in the Championship this forthcoming season...

Wow, hola Miguel! Long time no post (etc).

Good to see you around, too.

They did Pob, thanks - I thought I'd mentioned something to you in my LJ but maybe I didn't - sorry!

Yeah, they arrived. Haven't heard them yet (I have a huge backlog of music to track through) but I'm intrigued to see Powderfinger (got a couple of their albums, I like them), and "Something For Kate" is a great name for a band, so I'm looking forward to giving this a listen. It's very kind of you to send these, so thanks!

Pob - just started importing everything into 'Tunes.

And I noticed that they're whole albums, not songs - cool! I just figured you'd made a couple of mix CDs with 1 song from a bunch of different artists. How cool that you've included the albums...

so now I have a new Powderfinder album, none of which I've heard before.

Neat!

Many thanks!

I was quite upset that I couldn't put everything I wanted to on those cds. Itunes never even gave me a notification that it wouldn't copy certain songs.

Were they tracks you downloaded from the iTunes store? I know that if iTunes thinks you've bought tracks, there are only a certain number of times you can transfer those songs to other places. Were they '.m4p' or '.aa' files - I've had something similar happen to me before.

Anyway, "Internationalist" is a fine album, heard it on continuous repeat maybe 4 or 5 times now. I was a bit surprised to see that the band were taking 2005 off; I do hope they come back next year with a new album.

There's more than enough utilities out there to strip Apple's "encoding" off of your purchased songs, and you can set iTunes to import your mp3 collection (i.e., the songs you've bought) without reencoding it to their format. Apple's format is really just a couple of tags at the end of the mp3 file, and some utilities even let you keep the ident tags but change them to something you choose, so you can remove the copy restrictions Apple imposes while at the same time have a way to prove you did legally purchase these tracks.

Australia still doesn't have an itunes store, wish they'd hurry the hell up.
They were just purchased cds that I imported using itunes. I might have a look around mtdew, thanks.

Thanks Ben. I hadn't even thought about looking for something like that, but it seems obvious (and inevitable) that something like that would exist, now you come to mention it.
