  • Chockasunday,

    Huh, those amazon mp3s sure don't work anymore!

    I also use and happily recommend
    7digital
    a UK store which sells MP3s. They have about as big a range as Amazon.
    They would be a bit more expensive though; usually 99p per track which is more expensive than US$0.99
    They take paypal too.

    Playlouder is supposed to be good too, though I haven't used it yet.

    Bevan.

  • stephen clover,

    Oh, while fans wait for the album to drop, here's a list of live versions of nearly all the album tracks available

    Hmmm.. listening now, and not too wowed. Might flag that LP/CD box order I was planning for this afternoon.

    Much more fun is this, especially for folk -- of whom I understand there were plenty -- who didn't much like the recent Dylan concerts in NZ.

  • Russell Brown,

    This just in ...

    Seems the rugby really does look better on Freeview.

    TV3 is using its own satellite capacity to deliver the signal via Freeview -- pretty much all of it.

    Meanwhile, Sky's stream of TV3 is its usual squeezed-up self.

    You are Paul Campbell, and I claim my prize ...

    Cunning plan: I make minor technical errors, thus forcing geeks to register with my website and correct me.

    Everyone knows that the most authoritative comments on the interwebs come from real experts correcting bloggers :-D

  • Paul Campbell,

    Well given their current claims of "broadcasting to all the pacific including NZ" so they can get around the advertising blue laws I can imagine they are doing this - certainly they have to have an unencrypted signal up there now for freeview - last time I checked (many months ago) Sky was using TVNZ's streams (they probably pay them for the use) but had TV3 encrypted - I bet as Freeview channels migrate to unencrypted transponders Sky will start using the unencrypted freeview streams and pick up some more space to add a few extra channels on their transponders

    In the mean time I remember hearing that TVNZ was merging some of their advertising markets - they used to run 3 streams for TV1 (identical except for the ads) on OPTUS, I bet they've dropped that down so they have more room for TV6 etc transponder space is always a pain (look at the problems the US sat providors have with the FCCs 'must carry' rule)
