    LAPTOP OWNERS - don't buy Sony DualDisc CDs

    I picked up the new Ben Folds today. It's in a new format called DualDisc, and it's remarkably thicker than normal CDs or DVDs, resulting in the fact that it did not fit in the drive of my 1.5 month-old Powerbook. I will, as you can imagine, have to take it back to the store tomorrow. Thing is...

    databse ID is not constant

    I discovered this while working on a script for someone else- they have an app that grabs the database ID along with other track data and makes an xml of it; my script grabs the xml and updates iTunes. The interesting thing I noticed is that unless one updates iTunes immediately, one runs the...

    iTMS Link-maker

    This is beyond my ken, but I was wondering if any scripters out there had any idea on how to automate linking to songs in the ITMS? I'm sure that someone clever enough scripting Safari could pull it off; Apple's provided all the backend with the iTunes Music Store Link-Maker, and the url...

    What I did with "Remove n Characters"

    This script deletes a speicified number of characters from the front of the track's name. This morning I needed it to get rid of stuff in front of an artist name (I wanted to get "Bob Marley W/" off the front of every track's artist name in Chant Down Babylon.) So I initially modified the script...

    If there's copy protection on it, as was rumored, iTunes isn't affected. The packaging for the Limted edition is lovely.
