Friday, June 10, 2005 Moves

Okay, if you're reading this then the move of to the new host was successful. We now have webmail, MySQL access, and probably some other cool stuff I don't know about (Zane made the decision to change hosts, not me).

I'm still trying to get rid of several old issues of Wired Magazine and several old issues of Linux Journal. If you're interested or know anyone that is, let me know. Otherwise, I guess I'm going to put them up on eBay eventually...

I promised a review of the Creative Nomad Zen Xtra. Pros: It plays my 320k MP3s without hiccuping, it gives me 30 gig for only $200, and I can set bookmarks to come back to later (good for podcasts). Cons: It doesn't play the AAC files I bought from iTMS, there's no really good software for it (nothing even close to iTunes + iPod), and it uses a database for oganizing the music instead of letting you create your own directory hierarchies. Some people like that last one because you browse music by genre, artist, or album (or a flat list of every song) and either queue it up or start it playing. The main thing I don't like is the "list every song" mode doesn't show the artist or album and it's sorted alphabetically by song name.
