Finally, a tip if you own a video iPod...if you haven't already discovered that the iPod is a cool piece of technology that can breath new life into all those bootleg DVDs you own that have just ok video quality but nice stereo audio tracks - there you go!  I have edited a bunch of Zeppelin clips downloaded from Bit Torrent sites and exctracted/edited another dozen vids and converted them to mpeg-4 to play on the video iPod and it's really a fun compilation you can make for yourself.  The smaller resolution of course helps those marginal videos out quite a bit.  Ever been to a record show where those dealers are playing their bootleg videotapes and DVDs on the 8-inch TV screen?  They sure looked good there and then you get them home and view on your 42 inch TV or 17 inch Computer monitor and it's a different and disappointing story - same concept but in reverse, this time in your favor.  Give it a shot if you haven't experimented yet, you'll be surprised! 

Thanks for stopping by for the latest, it was short but lots of sweet stuff here to seek out.  Have yourself a great week.
