nothing purchased, nothing gained

so, nothing bought from itms-c yet. i wanted to go to the mall last night to check some "real" prices before hitting the itms-c for tunes. i got home last night on the bus at around 8pm or so. what a loooong day.

while out after work (xmas shopping), i checked out music world and humvuh (hmv) for prices on the k-os cd featuring the tracks "bboy stace" and "crabbuckit". the disc was $16.99 and $18.99 respectively. on the itms-c the entire disc is $10.99. can't complain about that.

one thing that i want to figure out 100% is the whole "there are limitations as to how many times you can burn, transfer tracks" thing. anyone know the official rules for this?

work is going well. i've started the custom cms for seminars and trade shows. i've got a little form that allows people to upload all of the data to the database but i can't seem to figure out how to create a hyperlink that lets people delete records directly from the table. searching online hasn't really yeilded any reasonably understandible results yet. i'll keep looking. i would prefer not to link to another page because i don't want to go anywhere else to "confirm that it worked". i'd like the table to update automatically (a brief refresh might be in order, no sweat). ideas?

That's freaky... I was thinking of purchasing K-OS' latest single (can't think of the name right now) as my "first iTMS tune". haha!

As for the legalities around the store, this is from AppleInsider's posting:

With the same personal use rights as in the US and Europe, the iTunes Music Store in Canada gives users the ability to play songs on up to five personal computers, burn a single song onto CDs an unlimited number of times, burn the same playlist up to seven times and listen to their music on an unlimited number of iPods. The iTunes Music Store in Canada also offers PC and Mac users the same features including: iMix, Party Shuffle, Artist Alerts, gift certificates, jewel case label printing, a large variety of audiobooks and automatic WMA to AAC conversion.Re: Deleting from the DB... Send me a note with the details. I'll lend a hand!

fm: i will do that. i could really use the help here! hehe. re: the tunes, that's all excellent. i'm trying to get this tho: i can create playlists all i want, but can only burn them 5 times? can't i just rename the list something else and burn it? hmm. not that i do that anyways, but i was just thinking. also frankie, is your amazon account .ca or .com? let me know what to search for there! :)

Renaming the playlist won't get around the 5-time limit, because it's based on order and songs included. You'll have to create a new one with a different order and possibly swap in/out some of the songs.

Still, 5 CDs of one playlist seems strange anyway, doesn't it? Who is burning that many copies of one CD?

yayaya, that is wierd. i have playlists and really only have them organised into "punker", "gangsta", etc. there are too many tracks in there to burn. if i'm burning playlists, it's because they're gifts (i've a griffin itrip for the ipod so cds in the car are obsolete for me). i certainly don't burn a playlist more than 1 time or maybe 2x.
