Ha, no, that's probably a good thing. I really wish that in the very first edition, I'd thought ahead and held a couple of tracks that would have come in handy on subsequent lists.

It's addictive though, isn't it?

Er, yes. I've always liked putting together mix tapes and stuff, and what with the addictive personality I have going on...


Is there much transfer of songs from one person's playlist in one game to someone else's in the next? I'd imagine that listening to a lot of playlists with songs you weren't familiar with, would give people a chance to find songs they really like and would want to then use themselves... not that there's anything wrong with that. Idle curiosity

And WHY can't I use two songs by the same artist on different discs of the playlist...

And furthermore, WHY does both WMP and iTunes insist on putting the total time of a playlist in "2.8 hours" format?? That tells me nothing! Who can be bothered figuring out what 0.8 of an hour is?



(And yes, I know 2.8 hours is too long. I just don't know by how much.)

Yeah, after DI III ... I made three sequels to that tracklist.

I think there has been a bit of that, but more in terms of introducing people to artists in general. Like I think it was PFan(?) who took to God Is An Astronaut after phanan and I used GIAA tracks in our entries. Can't recall if he's used a GIAA track in DI V, though.

And I'm guessing the use of Porcupine Tree by phanan and I has influenced the inclusion of more PT with every passing tournament.

If you click the number in iTunes, it changes to hours and minutes.

Yep. You're not familiar with the Desert Island tournaments over on B&C, I take it?
