    @cvu @snipergirl In my own file staging utility I can select a retention period of a day, a week, a month or permanent. I can also elect to zip the file(s). These were features no one else appeared to offer, but I wanted them so I rolled my own.

      @snipergirl @pittman @cacotopos I didn't implement the scrobbler or LastFM integration. It was based on the Bass audio library and had features I particularly wanted and couldn't find in other players.

        @snipergirl @pittman @cacotopos I wrote my own music player some years back and still use it alongside Foobar2000.

          I'm into the final 48 hours of ADN. I'm somewhat wistful about leaving, but not enough to continue.

            @snipergirl @pittman @cacotopos I'm with you. iTunes is a bugger to get rid of on Windows too. I hate it.

              @scottnesbitt I have just a couple of Windows applications I don't have Linux alternatives for. Otherwise I agree.

                @rwoeber Special use case: a partner who gets grumpy if I get up too early. I often like there, awake and ready to go, for up to forty minutes before I feel I can (quietly) get up.

                  @scottnesbitt Well, if I had something like the Asus Transformer I might occasionally find it useful.

                    @aurynn I love it. It brings out my inner Sys Admin.

                      @aurynn I've found that any reasonable Android hardware is vastly improved by rooting and installing Cyanogenmod. Then it doesn't matter whether it was originally a Nexus or not.

                            @thestopbutton I've had a few, and nothing comes close to going the whole hog and buying a NAS. Better performance and reliability, more features.

                                  Returned to my completely sealed home after four very hot days away, and walked into an oven. I suppose there's nothing an hour of open doors and windows - and perhaps a cold beer - won't fix.

                                      @lvcifer I suppose a party for masochists has to be run by a sadist. But if I follow you, will I be called an Ambulance Chaser?
