Re: What gigs have you just been to?

Couple of shows in the last week. I took all my children to see The Damned at Leeds O2 Academy last week. That was a thrill in itself but they all loved it, but how could they not?

Re: High capacity mp3 players

So with Fiio Players Simon... What software do you use for uploads, play lists etc? Is there a non-iTunes equivalent?
