In reply to

Their main office is in Oakland CA (sadly they are not hiring IT people right now since I live in SF).

I think they are infact looking for someone for their IT Dept., not sure what exact profile, but I remember seeing the information on one of their links. Unfortunately, I wouldn't be able to look for the link now as I am at work and like most of the fun sites, Pandora is blocked too


Curtis:
Thanks a lot for the website man, it rocks! Yeh, like a few others mentioned, it does not have a very extensive classical selection though. But I think it's just a matter of getting the search parameters right - Was a little funny when a search for 'yo yo ma' turned up a hip-hop artist with a penchant for colorful language!

definitely a big thanks for the rec, it's a great site.

I've upgraded my headphones to the Ultimate Ears super.fi 5EB. Bass is definitely pronounced, I can see where others might think too much but I'm OK w/ it. MUCH better soundstaging than my Sony EX71's. I also ordered a pair of Xtrememac FS1's (by Future Sound) so I can have a "headphone off". Should get them soon, I'll post my thoughts.

I heard those Sennheisers were excruciatingly bright. Or are they just accurate?

They actually sound a tad on the warm side to me....which seems to coinside with what I read on some of the headphone forums. They are defiitely warmer than my Ety ER6i's, and more bass too.

I discovered a "limitation" of pandora today while trying to burn through a bunch of tracks to help tune a station to my liking. I just got the following error:

Unfortunately, our music licenses force us to limit the number of times you may skip songs each hour.

I think I skipped 4 or 5, but can't be sure. That seems pretty restrictive.

The FAQ has the explanation, Peter.

Q: Can I skip as many songs as I'd like if I subscribe?

No. Our licenses do not allow unlimited skips per hour. The idea here is that you should not be able to skip ahead to find exactly the song you might be looking for. An unlimited number of skips could effectively provide "track on demand" which is not allowed in a streaming radio product.

I understand it, I just like limits about as much as I like obeying them.

I think there is a way around it by instead of skipping, just select "I don't like it". That seems to let you go to the next song.

The "I don't like it" skips count as regular skips.
