Podcast Episode 12 is live, with the usual assortment of insightful and exciting content. In this episode, Dave Bullard and David Braue discuss the Grand Final, Entourage, Google SideWise, MobileMe's looming irrelevance, the $0.43 Mac, and Photo5 winners; Adam Turner and Anthony Caruana share Snow Leopard upgrade war stories; and Keith White digs into his music library for another round of Name That MIDI Tune.

The prize for the music comp is... well... er... we'll all act very impressed. But give it a listen and see if you can pick 'em. Heaven knows I couldn't!

Let's break it down into six - three titles, three artists.
So you've got three out of six with one assist.

And CF today means Compact Flash - which fairly describes Ms Francis. ( Pre baby boomers try YouTube)

K?

I've tried to download the podcast from iTunes and the download starts but ceases almost immediately with the error message shown in the screen shot.

Other podcasts download normally.

The best way to upgrade to a new version of OS X is to erase and install. It does involve more work in that you have to back up everything before you erase and then re-install all your software again, but it also gives you the opportunity to go through your "stuff" and find out what you no longer need.

Such an upgrade strategy is also trouble-free.

I, like you have always done that! In fact, I recommended that procedure to a poster earlier this week.

It wasn't me, but I do find it intriguing how frequently many people do reformat and reinstall their OSes -- is computing really meant to be that complicated? I just put Snow Leopard over Leopard, and perhaps I was lucky but it worked well. I wonder why there is so much variation in upgrade experiences -- perhaps it is the result of many many apps being installed, changed, uninstalled and leaving lots of detritus all over the place?

Or perhaps my reluctance to nuke and pave is because I have so much data that backing it up and reinstalling opens up the potential for all sorts of bother. Dunno. Yet while I'm not against reformatting where necessary, I would suggest people try many options before doing it out of hand - unless, of course, you've figured out an easy way to do it and don't mind at all. In which case, carry on.
