    I know this is not the best place but, anyway. I downloaded some podcasts to my cellular but they are “seen” differently from ones to others. SOme looks like podcasts and other like music! I know I am a “bit” out of fashion with bits but is there any chance to fix it so all of them are considered as podcasts?
    Thank you guys!
    I will isten to them anyway, you are my pinhole gurus!!!

    So, I picked up the latest version of Renner’s book after listening.

    “Hmm”, I thought’ “these pictures seem familiar…”
    To the stacks! It seems that I have purchased three different editions of the same book in the last couple years.

    Photography BOOKS! My favorite!

    Thought I’d just mention that your local libraries may be an excellent resource for perusing, easy on the pocketbook, and often have a very large selection (particularly large university libraries).
