    It’s two, two, two shows in one!! Hey Dave, no biggie, just wanted to let you know you should listen to this show again. It’s like there’s two of you, and your both chasing me! Voices . . . I’m hearing voices!

    It’s all good man. That’s what makes this stuff so much fun. Keep up the good work.

    dave – i haven’t listened to the entire program yet – but from the first 30 seconds i hear that you did an edit – but did you mean to step on the intro too – or is that an mp3 glitch?

    Thanks for the quick heads up, guys. There was a torturous path to that screwup. First I edited out a big chunk out of the original entry. I then recorded some replacement material and then decided not to use that. I wanted to maybe use it tomorrow, but didn’t want to put it in this one. I thought that muting that track meant that it wouldn’t be used. Every time I played via Audacity it wasn’t there, but apparently that control doesn’t apply to the export. That was an unpleasant surprise to me, since all the other controls apply and I had no reason to believe that one was different.

    Sorry to the 10 folks who got the screwed up verswion of it. It’s fixed now, and I’m verifiying that right now. Again, thanks for the heads up. I appreciate it greatly.

  4. Thanks for the plug!

    I’ve fixed up parts of the script as per Adam’s comments (and fixed the launch issue) in 1.0.2 and am now working on some of your suggestions (check HEAD of RSS before downloading) to ease server/bw load

    As for the out of order thing? I’m just as confused as you are — which doesn’t bold well as I wrote the damn thing. I use sets to do the compare against the previous rss file and the newly downloaded one. At some point it gets out of order when I parse through the set. Since it only effects really the first use, Its lower on my list of things to fix – but its good to know (or bad?) that someone else noticed the problem.

    Again thanks for the plug

    Hi Dave,

    Java version of iPodder is under dev. on:

    Not fully featured, like: wma, aac support or HEAD check. Also adding tracks in iTunes is still under dev. Still it’s a working version and you could go through the .java in the \src directory just for the fun of it.

    Anyway, I will continue developping it. (Just started 1 week ago) Cheers / Christophe
