I'm off to catch a plane soon. Long-haul flight, so need something to do.

Instead of lugging CDs around (believe it or not this is how I have listened to podcasts while on the road, so sad) I decided to get digital. (!)

Went to the Circuit City and saw one of these...

The Vibrance of Zen MicroPhoto

Got my mitts on a Zen MicroPhoto. Has 8GB that can act as storage for any filetypes. Less than $190. That's a deal. Getting used to the UI but the management software that comes with it works ok. Also syncs Outlook data but don't need it - have Smartphone that takes care of that.

As I write now I realise can't store all the music I have. It manages about two thirds - up to Public Enemy. Had to make a decision - Chopin removed to make space for Euphoria (under Various Artists, see). Oh well, I got what I really wanted now - I can listen to some mindbending stuff from IT Conversations and some API stuff with Niall, Om and Kevin this week.
