Might need to get rich to do that, though.
... and you want to be an academic, right?

You using iTunes? You can get it to display the time in hours, minutes, and seconds just by clicking on it.

Which DOES pay well, though probably not quite that well. Maybe I should write a really controversial book that sells millions!

Not any more. Actually, I could go back to it, cos the song it refused to recognise isn't in my list any more, but then I'd have to rearrange the iTunes list to match what I've got in WMP now... argh.

*lazy*

I was going to pretend to burn them onto a CD to get an exact time for the whole thing. But that would be just as laborious...

And I'll probably have to split it in two if I'm doing this as a two-disc thing...

Blah. Effort sucks.

Atta way. There's a writer's festival on soon... I keep thinking I should go to something and badger someone about how to become an editor. Except I can't be arsed even doing that.

Why do I have to work??

WMP is the music player of ... well, not the devil, more just a pissweak, insipid demon.

And heh, my DI III was nominally two discs, but it wasn't a proper disc split. The second disc was longer than 80 minutes!

Being an editor initially sounds like it wouldn't be so bad. Then you think of the kind of crap people would likely want edited ...

Though a writer's festival may be just what I need. I keep periodically getting back into my writing and then put it by the wayside as soon as uni gets busy or something else comes along and distracts me. LIKE THIS PLACE.

You still haven't 'splained to me WHY WMP sucks so bad. It plays the music, I can make playlists, what's the problem?

Well, as long as I'm allowed to do that Are we supposed to present it in a two-disc or three-cassette or ten-LP set or something?

But the up-side is that you would either get to reject the crap or else improve it immeasurably. I hope.

Damn you, blue crack.

Because everything about it is bad and difficult to use and the WMA format is of the devil?

You can present it however you like! I normally just use straight 160 minute "iPod playlists", but others have used various creative formatting techniques.

Please tell me that "lavash" is a word and you didn't just mean "lavish"...?

*munches on pizza shapes* ... I don't know what you mean.

Ah right...

And I don't really have any songs in wma format... it plays mp3s too, you know.
(I just like watching the little "scope" visualisation... )

Yeah, but you've got to have the patience to sit through the crap in the first place! My patience does not always come in bucketloads ...

Ali, you don't know of lavash bread? It's goodness! Lavash - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pizza shapes sounds good right about now too ...
