SyntaxPolice: If dragging a folder just passes a directory handle, as opposed to a sorted list of files, that would explain the ordering issues. If I were a betting man (which I'm not), I'd bet the songs were getting played in order of creation/last modification when you drag a folder.

dmerrill: Not to worry. If some hoser snatches the linuxdoc.org domain, all that has to be done is to make it not worth his while to own it. One just has to make it more expensive than he/she/they can afford. ISP costs can become very high when a site is getting hammered with enough traffic to flood a few OC-3s.

Not too much to say about my end of things (whatever those things may be). Still job hunting. The game is scarce and the hunters are many.

Went to Barnes & Noble the other day. Noticed, for the first time in a long time, a copy of Fahrenheit 451 on the shelves that did not have to phrase "The temperature at which books burn" on the cover. Hallelujah! Almost bought it (I've been waiting a long time to get a new copy, just to avoid that bloody insult on the cover), but I don't have a whole lot of money and it came down to Fahrenheit 451 and a book of poetry by Seamus Heaney, Seeing Things. As I've read Fahrenheit 451 many times, but had never seen the Heaney book before, I'll have to wait a bit for Fahrenheit 451.

Right now, I'm reading Excession, by Iain M. Banks. As I've come to expect from Iain Banks, it's awesome (in many senses of the word). One of his many "Culture" novels.
