I’ve created a really enjoyable itunes ‘smart playlist’, which I’m listening to now whilst sorting the garden out.

I’m not a big fan of hammering a tune so this ones ideal. Basically its a playlist of songs I like but don’t listen to much for one reason or another.

Its all songs with 3 stars or more with less than 4 plays.

Its bringing up some great old songs I’d forgotten about (ie. I rated them without listening because I know they’re great) and songs I loved on first listen but forgot about.


Filezilla: My Kind of Update Notification

I was just using Filezilla (a free FTP client – although I don’t think it has anything to do with Mozilla/Firefox) when it prompted me with a note saying a new version was available. The neat thing is, it included the change log as part of the notification. This meant I could see whether it contained any new features that made it worth me downloading.

This is a far cry from Apple where when iTunes has an update available I have to search the web and hope someone has posted the changes in a forum somewhere. When I do then download the latest version it attempts to push Safari and Quicktime on me in the process.
