So Tweet It Is

Daily tweets? Or tweets all day long?

As an experiment, I'm unfriending people at Twitter if they use LoudTwitter to post their daily tweets here.  I actually like seeing their daily tweets on my friends page better than seeing individual tweets in my feed reader all day long.

Some people tweet way too much.  (Here's a one-day LoudTwitter aggregation from Ben Templesmith.)


Hypothetically Speaking...

Suppose one wanted to move their MP3 of Koda Kumi's "Anytime" onto their iPod.  So, they drag it over to iTunes, but nothing happens.  They even select File->Add File To Library.., but Anytime just won't get imported.  But the song plays just fine in Windows Media Player.

Augh!  That someone would be pretty frustrated.

That someone would then probably open Anytime in Mp3tag and notice that the Codec wasn't MPEG 1 or 2 Layer III.  They'd wonder why iTunes is so picky.

Then they'd open Anytime in Audacity (with the LAME MP3 Codec) and transcode it to another file.  They'd have to trim it in a little bit to remove some popping, and they'd have to manually move the cover art from the old MP3 to the new one.

But then, they'd be able to get Anytime onto their iPod.

Hypothetically speaking.

And this is here for anybody who Googles for iTunes and "won't import" "can't import", MP3 file.

    I "Searched" some of your archive looking for the fluorescent bulb post, but couldn't find it through 2009-02-06, and before that, LiveJournal no longer offers pages of your feed, just daily access,…

    Ha ha! How coincidental, I was thinking about light bulbs yesterday myself. One of my Instagram contacts mentioned that the EU regulates the types of light bulbs people can use in their homes in…
