MessageI also recall that in earlier versions of Winamp, you could skip through 
section by section by hitting B to skip forward and Z to skip backward. I 
wonder what happened to that nifty little feature. Really came in handy!

  Hi Neal:
  I sure would like to have the mystery sound in a separate piece.  I have to 
keep fast forwarding through the whole pod cast to get to it and hear it again. 
 Really, I think your idea is a good one.  Jonathan Mosen has done this with 
his Bloggy Bits feed, allowing us to download individual parts of the show so 
we can choose the ones in which we are interested.

    Larry and list.  I have noticed that some of the last podcasts contain a 
number of different podcasts all combined into 1 giant one.  For myself, I 
would like to see individual ones instead of a bunch of them together.

    Two reasons follow.

    1.  If they were individual files, you would only have to download the one 
you want to hear rather than a much larger file containing things that might 
not be of interest to you.

    2.  In a larger file, there is not a really good way to easily get from one 
subset of the podcast to another.  True, you can skim through the file with the 
bookport and place a bookmark at the beginning of each part, but that takes a 
lot of time.

    Those are just my opinions.  I would like it if people on the list had the 
podcasts presented in the way most people want to hear them.  So, If this is 
what people want, I'll come along for the ride, but I thought I would bring up 
the issue to see what people thought.

    Thanks all.
