Feed My Zune!

Ok, I know I've been complaining about my Zune to just about anyone who would listen...The inability to sync content with Windows Media Player, the poor battery life, blah, blah, blah... Well, at least one of my complaints appears to be resolved - the inability to subscribe to podcasts and have the content automatically loaded on my Zune.

In fact, I was just griping about this very fact earlier tonight (while also accepting an offer to trade a chandelier for an iPod mini). Then I come home, my complaint fresh on my mind, and plug in "video podcast zune" (my version of a hail-mary search) in Google and what to my wondering eyes should appear, no, not a miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer, but something called FeedYourZune (interestingly enough at feedyourzune.com, go figure).

Well, I've just downloaded it, but I'm not sure I want it on my laptop, so I think I'll probably try it on my workstation first. (All 300+GB of my MP3s are housed on a dedicated server - for the obvious reason that they don't fit on anything else, duh! - and my Zune is primarily linked to my workstation so it can take advantage of the gigabit network connection when transferring content.)

All I can say at this point, is that I'm so excited that I might actually be able to get some decent video sync'ed to my Zune that I can barely contain myself! In fact, the only reason I'm writing this on my laptop is that due to a power outage earlier this week (thanks DP&L - I appreciate that...) one of my HP NetServers is beeping every second and I haven't had the energy to fix it. I think I've figured out what it is, but I need to reboot it and check some of the bios or NetRaid settings and I don't have a monitor or keyboard hooked up to it at the moment. I know, I really should have a KVM, but I just haven't gotten around to it...(although, someone once did give me a round tuit, but I'm pretty sure I lost it. Anyone know where I can find another?)

That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it...
