    Thanks for the podcast, but in particular, thanks for the exposure to Granian. Excellent. Bought his CD after hearing your show.

    Oh My Gosh! That tip about the RCA cable is awesome. I was just wondering about connecting my 20GB color iPod up to the TV to view my photos but I didn’t want to go and by that dumb cable. If you didn’t know yet, I have just confirmed that that tip DOES work with an iPod 20GB Color not only the Fifth Generation iPods. (I think you said it that it was a tip for Fifth Generation iPod.) Well anyways, THANKS SO MUCH! Love the show keep up the GREAT work!

    Interesting comment about radio being free, during your DRM section. Initially it was licensed. In fact, in the early years of the BBC radio stations in the UK, the phonographic industry limited the amount of time any station could play records (called “needletime”), because it was worried that if you could listen to music on the radio you wouldn’t buy records. Sounds familiar, but if it wasn’t for that you wouldn’t have so many “live at the BBC” albums in your record collection (session recordings didn’t count as needletime). Perhaps if it weren’t for DRM, podcasting wouldn’t be so important today?

    Its a sad day for podcasters everywhere as (as featured on DSC) is being closed down. How long will it take for the fat cats to realize all we’re doing is giving them FREE press!

    moving iTunes/iPhoto libraries – this is what I do with iTunes:
    I’ve got all my mp3 files organized in a folder on an external disk. To add these files I drag them to iTunes. This way iTunes stays in its default location with its Library in the default location. The ~/Music/iTunes/iTunes Music folder stays small. Make sure to uncheck ‘Copy files to iTunes Music folder when adding to libray’ in the iTunes prefences ‘Advanced’ tab.
