Sounds of Silence Thanks to a little bug in GarageBand, Episode 47 has a section of silence around three and a half minutes in.  I've fixed it and uploaded the corrected version.  I wish I could tell you how to trick iTunes into getting the new version outside of deleting and unsubscribing from the podcast.  Anybody know how to do this easily?  Thanks to Wright for tipping us off on the error!

Cheers,

James

UPDATE:  It seems that if you delete the older Episode #37, unsubscribe from the podcast, and then subscribe again, the new Episode #37 will download.

MacMania 7 Report #2 My wife, Tonya, drops in on the second report aboard the ms Volendam for MacMania 7. While sailing to Aruba, we had a full day of classes yesterday. Today in Aruba, we enjoyed an afternoon of snorkeling. This post is a day late as Libsyn's web-based interface didn't cooperate with our ship's internet connection. I'm now using the terminal and going straight in via FTP. Problem solved!
