Gone now are the days where everything is a mp3. The damn files were in m4b format, something that iTunes came out with that can only be played on their player and has a DRM built in. Luckily, there are people out there who have hacked that and I'm in the process of trying to convert each file to a usable format. It's not hard now that I have the software needed but it takes forever. Dozens of files and each one will take 5 minutes or so to process. There's no way to schedule them ahead of time so I have to cue up each one as the previous finishes.
Oh well. It's not like I have something more important to do.
