3URLs 10/03/04 - in three parts

I split the 10/03/04 show into three parts. One file for each URL I talk about.
AudioActivism.org 3URLs 10/03/04
thememoryhole.org 7m 38s 7.3MB
fsrn.org 9m 30s 8.7MB
freewayblogger.com 7m 46s 7.1MB

I've been listening to allot of Podcasts. Many of them are around thirty minutes long. Turns out I haven't been able to listen to a whole show in one sitting. When I listen to the shows on my iPod (During lunch, driving in the car, walking around, etc.) I only have 10 to 15 minutes to spare. So I've decided to split the show(s) into parts. This way you have more digestible chunks to consume. :-) Hopefully this will be more convenient.

Also i've read about AppleScripts that can provide bookmarks in iTunes. Here is one by Graham Nelson. I hope to try it soon.

This was very interesting listening. I do have one suggestion: if you do more multiple-file Podcasts, add a number either in the filename or track number field for each file, so that they will be added--and play back--in the same order you intend them to be listened to. I point this out because you did say at the beginning of each, "this is URL number x".

Great work.

Oh, I'm an idiot, I just noticed that you also did one file with all three in it. iPodderX downloaded all four.

Thanks for the kind words and the suggestion Oscar. In the future I will upload several smaller (as in MB and time) files that are labeled more accurately. Plus I won't upload duplicates. Sorry for the confusion. :-)
