1/10    I tried iTunes when the first windows version came out, and the one
        thing that made it useless is that for the 3000 or so of my songs
        that lacked ID3 tags, it would only identify them as 'Unknown Artist'
        and made it impossible to identify the song by the file path, which
        was /Artist/Album/01 - Song.mp3   Have they fixed this problem or are
        people without proper ID3 tags still up shit creek?
        \_ This doesn't answer your stated question, but: Tag&Rename.
           Good tool for multi tag editing and getting tags from filenames.
           Free for 30 days.  -niloc
        \_ If you don't want to add id3 tags you can tell iTunes not to move
           your mp3s which helps some, but it still pretty much sucks.  There
           are lots of tools out there to quickly add id3 tags though, it
           really doesn't take that long.  And if you ever get an ipod you
           will be glad you did.
           \_ "really doesn't take that long"?  Did you read the part where I
              said 3000 songs?  Unless you know of a tool which does filesystem
              to ID3 generation, it will take several hours at least.
              \_ You can try something like - it didn't
                 work for all of my songs, but enough that the remaining set was
                 trivial.  The tagging tools in foobar2000 are also really good
                 for generating tags for files with regular names.
              \_ If you use a consistent naming scheme for your MP3 files,
                 writing a script to do this is pretty trivial; it wouldn't
                 surprise me if there were one readily available. I wrote one
                 some time ago; if I still had it, I'd post it. -gm

11/6    I downloaded some free and paid apps that are ummmm questionable and
        I don't really want my wife to see it, how do I remove it from the
        iTunes download history? I can't seem to do that anymore after
        upgrading to iOS6 (I used to be able to "hide" it).

2/25    iTunes has two job openings for production support engineers. It's
        mostly chasing production issues so that the engineers don't have to.
        Lots of SQL, some scripting, no actual coding. Pager required. Sorry
        if I'm not selling it. Check the website or email me if you're
        interested. -abe
        \_ can we do this remotely?

2/5     I like Adobe Flash. When written correctly, it scales along
        with your browser size. It looks consistent on every single
        browser. It is predictable. On the other hand, I'm not a big
        fan of CSS/HTML, which for the most part, look wildly different
        between browsers, and don't even work consistently or
        correctly at times. So why do so many people (like Steve Jobs)

        Replace sister with "women in general." I can't believe how
        true this is.

7/21    Erin Andrews (
        Is that her nipple showing through the jacket?
        \_ This is what you really wanted to see:
           To me it seems contrived that she would be curling her hair

MusicBrainz is a community music metadatabase that attempts to create a comprehensive music information site. You can use the MusicBrainz data either by browsing this web site, or you can access the data from a client program -- for example, a CD player program can use MusicBrainz to identify CDs and provide information about the CD, about the artist or about related information. You can also use the MusicBrainz Tagger to automatically identify and clean up the metadata tags in your MP3 collections. introduction Use MusicBrainz You can use Musicbrainz right now to automatically identify and label your music files -- all you have to do is download and run the MusicBrainz Tagger.
