What 2 or 3 Tunes Best Characterize You? June 6, 2006
That's a tough question to answer. Even more importantly to many who want to know you through your music: How do you introduce people to your "best" tunes when each listener has his/her own musical tastes? Of my stuff I'd say Why You, Alien Voiceunder and What Exit. Descriptions below. But that doesn't touch the acoustic side of my life, which is hardly documented here. Anyway, here's a description of uploads and my best description of what might appeal to you... whoever you are! NEXT STEP: Tell me what of YOURS to listen to... if you dare try. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Converting 24-bit WAVs into 16-bit for GB use March 6, 2006
Forget Audacity, use QuickTime to get 24-track WAVs into 16-bit GarageBand. This problem took longer than I care to admitto solve, maybe it'll help someone else shortcut the process.

My first stab at iWeb February 13, 2006
http://web.mac.com/bob6stringer/iWeb/B6s ... is my first stab at using iWeb from iLife '06. Note: March 20 2006 edit/update: I've fixed the link above. I've had this above page for several weeks and haven't been publicizing it much because iComps' Artist page does this well enough. I may in the future add music from my old band. If so I'll add an iComps blog entry to let you know.
