iPod Softwares, Anyone?

Charlie's iPod
To date, I've only rarely put anything at all on my iPod. It was originally Marilyn's mistressmarilyn -- an iPod Nano G2, which I adore.

I don't know if I've mentioned it before, but this iPod sat in the original box unopened for a year -- so it wasn't Marilyn's in actual use for long. (smile) Anyway, she passed it on to me when she got her iTouch for her bday. Very generous of her, I have to say!

Marilyn is the expert around here about the use of iTunes. But because I didn't want to mess up what already loaded on my iPod (from when she had it), I was nervous to try iTunes on my own computer. The whole music syncing thing confuses the hell out of me...

So I downloaded and used Floola -- a free software that allows you to manage music on your iPod without using iTunes.

Have any of the rest of you tried it? (I know a number of my friends also have iPods, so...)

I think I'll donate to the site, considering the ease of downloading and using it! Very impressive.

So I added some music, anyway. Of course, I did put the "Paint Your Wagon" soundtrack on both Marilyn's iTouch and my iPod -- and that required me to actually give every song a name and designate the album. So I have done a little bit with iTunes (over on Marilyn's computer).

Having embraced the iPod at long last, I do love my sweet new toy. Even if it's not the Nano 3G, I'm quite happy with it. (I tend to wear it around my neck like a necklace, even when I'm not playing it. And when not wearing it I pack it around with me. Just in case! Music can be so soothing when the need arises.)

There are a couple other softwares out there that are highly recommended that I'd like to check out at some point. There's also one that's $25 and has caught my interest in the past, but I might skip it if the free ones prove okay. (Why spend the $$$ unless I really need to, after all?)

We went to the St. Johns Parade today (it's in St. Johns and starts at noon). We ran into Mitch, saw Rich and the Street Team (which we'd decided not to join this year), and stood with Jessica and Mandy (and Jeff, at one point).

I got my usual 'hat salute' from the Royal Rosarians (a must for me), we saw the court and Leslie and Mark and others. And ran into Lucy (the curator from Pittock Mansion) and her husband. Very social day!

And Marilyn got her hair done, while I stayed home and did dishes and some laundry.

On the coding front, is anyone else amused by the fact that you have to use 'title' to get the 'alt' to display in Firefox? I'm now so much in the habit of using both, that I don't tend to give it a second thought! I frequently will also use the title code for links (which is what it's really for), too. I guess now that I do so damn much hand coding, I don't think much about it these days...

Well, more about my 'busy life' soon... It's time to head to bed! (Well past it, actually.)
