Thank you very much for featuring and supporting my music!
You have a great show going on, I’m a mac user as well, so I’ll definitely be stopping by again to hear about the latest apps and tips.
Good luck and thanks again,

Thank you for making the tracks available to podcasters. I found your stuff and loved it. I bought the EP from iTunes immediately and have been enjoying it for the past few days. I also know Ariel from Twitter and Facebook so that was a nice connection too.
FYI, the iMove HD 6.0.3 link that a user sent to you is just the updater that takes version 6.0.2 to 6.0.3, not the whole installer. I’ve scoured the Apple site, and it looks like iMovie HD 6 is really gone for good.
Add me to the list of Apple TV lovers who didn’t see that survey. For my 2cents, I get all my content for Apple TV from Elgato TV over the air digital. Sending this comment from Windooze PC so I can’t create my cool Apple icon.
Thanks Steve, I’m gonna check my version of iMovie HD to see if it is up to 6.0.3. Or should I say, every version that I backed up on every harddrive I could find.
You are right. I’m totally wasn’t paying attention. I will need to correct that on the next podcast. Thanks for the comment.
You fixed my Finder quitting issue with that Stuff It Expander trick! Thank You!!!
Adam, am also sad about iMovie HD because your recent podcasts had gotten my hopes up that it was still available. We recently converted my sister-in-law to the Mac universe by purchasing an old 12″ Powerbook G4 for her at Christmas, and even installed Leopard on it, so it feels brand new and she’s quite happy….unfortunately the Leopard Install from Tiger didn’t upgrade her software to iMovie ’08 because the G4 is not an intel processor. Therefore she’s been stuck with iMovie 5.0.2 and I feel that’s a bit unfair unless she can at least bump it up to iMovie HD, which runs on MY Powerbook just fine (12″ Powerbook is the best laptop ever BTW). Anyway I feel bad that we cannot help her with this injustice. Do we need to start a petition or something to bring it back? Hasn’t helped get Apple to update the Apple TV or Mac Mini has it? :-) Any further help your podcast can offer on this matter is greatly appreciated. -Ken in Washington DC
Adam… The superdrive on my desktop Dual 2.5Ghz G5 Mac stopped writing to disks quite a while ago, even though I could read from DVDs, CDs, etc. As I was riding my mountain bike and listening to your podcast, you mentioned a solution to rearrange the languages in the universal preferences. After my ride, I tried your tip, and presto, my drive could once again write to the disk!! Thanks for the tip, keep up the good work.
