Random links 2006-03-16

I was catching up with Justin earlier this morning because he commented in my post “Utilizing tagging with iTunes“. I haven’t talked to him in a long time, just because we’re both pretty busy. Basically, he gave me a couple good links I haven’t seen before:

  • Pear Budget – “a FREE budgeting program, written in Excel. It can be used by almost any [spreadsheet] program (Excel, Word, OpenOffice, etc.). Setting it up is a snap, and it takes less than half an hour a month to maintain it and see how you’re doing. (And—did we mention?—it’s free!)”
  • SmartPlaylists.com – a resource for creating, sharing, and chatting about iTunes Smart Playlists (I’ve heard of this one before, but it’s a good one to mention anyway)
  • Apple Store Student discount – you don’t have to be a full-time student to get this, either

Also, he wanted to know how to merge multiple feeds into a single one. So, I searched and found FeedShake and FeedJumbler.

For me, Pear Budget will be huge once I implement it into my life.

On a side note, I just have to say that it was awesome to catch up with him. It was a 48-minute conversation, and we both got something out of it. We might’ve talked even longer, but I had to get back to work.

Why don’t you do the same? You’ll definitely gain something, even if it’s just the experience. (Thanks Justin!)
