1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

My iPod died so now i WTB one...

    Oh it died? How sad. Natural causes or murder? [​IMG] Check out the Toshiba Gigabeat S. I hear good things. [​IMG]

    play nicely. it was the first generation 5 gig one, so i got a good 5, 6 years out of it, so I really cant complain. Never filled it so never upgraded it. Served me well. Died in my duffel bag, took one last whack I guess. PS feel free to let this slide for a while and then give it a bump with something abusive in a day or two [​IMG]

    At least you got some milage out of it before it crapped out. I can't believe you never filled up 5GB. You need to dump your girlfriends and spend some more quality time exploring the arts.

    You need to find podcasting. I only have a 2GB version (I was a giddy idiot and they didn't have an 4GB in store), but I frequently have offload things because I have to much that I want to listen too. You can find tens of thousands of podcasts (most truly horrible), but many excellent. I learn more by walking around then I do by reading textbooks.

    I've found lots of great ones. I'll break them down my category. I've put comments in paraenthsies. To find any of these podcasts simply put the name into the iTunes podcast directory. I like all of these, but I've italicized those which are really great, usually because they are short and teach a lot/make you think (also they carry the added benefit of providing interest tidbits for conversations). This isn't even close to my entire podcast directory [​IMG]. Every night I go to bed with a podcast playing in my ear; usually I get to listen to 30mins below falling asleep which allows me to listen to a large amount per week.

    History
    Matt's Today in History (best history podcast available, only about 7 minutes and always interesting)
    Military History Podcast (Often on ancient battles, but still interesting)
    History According to Bob (Audio versions of lectures so can be dry, but informative)

    Current Events/News
    A World of Possibilities (1hr long features on topics relating to the current world)
    Correspodent's Report (BBC - Reports from foreign correspodents around the world)
    Documentary Archieve (BBC - Documentaries about a variety of subjects)
    From Our Own Correspodent's (ABC - Same as BBC's Correspodent's Report)
    Needs No Introduction (Recordings of live speakers, quality very much dependent on the speaker)
    Perspectives (ABC - Daily 5min essays on a huge variety of topics)
    Slate's Explainer Podcast (Slate - Explaining a topic related to the news)


    Science
    All in the Mind (ABC - About the human brain and pschology)
    Quirks and Quarks (CBC - Science show on a variety of subjects)

    Other
    GQ Audio Podcast (About GQ and its articles)
    NPR: This I Believe (NPR - Personal stories of belief)
    NPR: Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me (NPR - Good break from learning, comedy show about the week's news)

Don't Tell Me (NPR - Good break from learning, comedy show about the week's news) To find other good podcasts look up the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corp.), BBC, CBC, and NPR. Each network has lots of shows and being that they are professionally produced the quality is much higher than others.

    Certainly you can quote me. I think it would be a great thread. Sorry for not responding more quickly; I've been away from civilization (no WiFi *gasp*).
