WinToFlash to transfer your install CD/DVD to your USB pendrive (it also makes it bootable).
PLUS Virtual CloneDrive (Freeware) IF you have the Windows/Install CD/DVD stored as an ISO or IMG on your PC.
And before you know it... Bob's your uncle. Fanny's your aunt. And you're one confused but happy little camper.

But you don't have to if you don't want to, but I'd highly recommend it if you enjoy the music. It's a full on Acid House, Techno, Electric phat beat / bass (bit like puffboy) album with 16 tracks, 1 hour 30 minutes, and SO worth the download, even if you have to spend all weekend downloading it over 3G on your mobile phone. (Like I did!)

Also blogger have a new dashboard, and posting style, very minimalist, with stats and things, much more like a copy of wordpress but slightly more basic looking. (if you're interested). Oh and it looks like me posting this has applied a different template to the blog. (so there).

"Most Significant" Gadgets: Wired.com - Apparently! 3 of them were phones, 2 were tablets (3 if you include the kindle), others: Macbook Air, MS Xbox Kinect, a Canon Powershot S95, and you know, something actually important / significant, that can actually change people's lives: the bionic legs that help people WALK again.

"Album Cover Art Downloader" (unrealvoodoo)
This one seems the most automatic, and will just get on with it when you "select all" and then click "download missing..." but has less sources (walmart, best buy, yahoo, but not amazon), and seems slower.
"Album Art Downloader" (sourceforge.net)
This one likes you to select and double click the image you want to be your album art, and seems quicker (but also depends on you responding to the prompts) and possibly more up to date than the top program, it also has more sources for album art including google images. You can also click "auto download and select artwork" which speeds up the process. It also lets you know how many albums you have without artwork, and then you can select them, and find artwork for them. Good stuff.

I've been tidying up on line and deleted a couple of blogs, being a blogger seams so retro now? (Where's the spell check button?) But more to the point who reads blogs these days any way?
I was amused to see that Dad is still doing seti, and is well over half way to catching me up.
There we go thats a post

The keyboard is a little poor. Space bar is in the wrong place. The keyboard works a little better and quicker when you use it liked a crackberry and type with your opposable thumbs (holding the phone rather than putting it down on the desk) but the spacing feels a little too wide when compared to a blackberry and the feeling is very ZX81. Where is the Psion 5 keyboard when you need it?
The screen seems much more responsive than the Sony Satio and is usable with just your fingers.
I guess its not too bad - perhaps quicker and more usable than having to use a normal phone - but nothing yet has convinced me that any phone is a suitable (perfect) blogging tool. The only thing they are really good at is photo blogging and posting short twitter style updates.

20 best episodes ever: here at nelsoncolne
Would be interesting to compare the results, but I don't have time now. (Maybe later)
