Redownloading a Podcast in iTunes

During the Summer months, I am doing a radio show at a local radiostation. The show is also available as podcast. Unfortunately, sometimes iTunes only downloads a part of the show. Until recently, I didn’t know how you could force iTunes to redownload a podcast episode.

Thanks to this website, I learned the trick: first delete the episode that did not download fully. In your podcast library, click the little grey triangle next to the show name to collapse it (so that you cannot see all of the episodes). Now, while holding the option key down on a mac, or the shift key on a pc) click on the triangle again. iTunes will think for a second and then show all of the episodes posted to the current RSS feed and allow any not in your library to be downloaded…including episodes you’ve deleted!


Office 2007 SP1 is out

A few days ago I learned through John C Dvorak’s splendid Tech 5 report that Microsoft published SP1 for Office 2007.

I downloaded SP1 from the Microsoft Download site and installed it. It took about 5 minutes.
I’ll have a look at the details of the Office 2007 SP1 package and let you know about my experiences with it in the next couple of days.

By the way, check out CrankyGeeks with John as well. I admit, I am a fan!
