And sometimes I try to get through things quicker by skipping tracks that never have snippets, or just going to points in songs where the snippets usually appear (e.g. on a JT boot, I'll skip to the end of ISHFWILF to see if it's got Exodus). I try to avoid doing things like that, but sometimes you just want to get the show out of the way and when you've worked on hundreds of sets, you do start to get a reasonable idea of where a snippet's likely to appear.

I would say, however, that the Vertigo Tour is incredibly close to complete. I don't doubt there's probably a handful of snippets missing, but for the most part, we nailed that - the audio feeds really helped.
Have you ever considered having people help you out on that? You know, you send them a bootleg, they review it for snippetry, they get to keep it? Everyone wins, your list becomes more accurate, they get a bootleg.

That's not such a bad idea. I've often taken the input of people here before who've pointed out mistakes and omissions. But yeah, maybe I should introduce that, get a few people I trust onboard. Indeed, there are a few snippets that I've identified that I really want another pair of ears to check ...

I'll help down the road when I have a better computer and you can send links to whole shows.

The most played song on my iTunes is Pain by Blackfield, at 105 plays. That's the iTunes on my Mac, and I've been using it for probably about eight or nine months as my primary music player. My last.fm probably tells the story better, I've been using it since mid-2005 and the most played song there is Cloudy Now by Blackfield on 276, closely followed by Porcupine Tree's Piano Lessons on 273.

The only U2 in my last.fm top fifty tracks is One Tree Hill, equal eleventh with Dream Theater's Pull Me Under on 237 plays.

Can we change the "could" to "pretty much"?
