Manage your iPod Shuffle using an 18Kb python script. Can’t get lower weight than that! I’m using the script to pop extra mp3 tracks onto my shuffle. I listen to (creative commons licenced) mp3s on this laptop using the terminal based mpg321 which has its own decoder.

Kyle Gann is allowing us a preview of her Planets suite. Enjoy.

I’d forgotten how slow a USB 1.1 connection is, 10 minutes to back up my iPod Shuffle g2 silver.
