A couple of Podcast domain names for sale

Back in 2004 when podcasting was starting I bought a couple domain names that I was hoping to build in to a community project. But it never really took off and plenty of others quickly filled the web. I since pretty much forgotten that I even had the domains until I was looking through my Dotster account recently. I have no need for the domains but believe they have some value, so I’m looking at selling them. I’m not setting a price, but would like to hear offers.

If you have any interest in the domain names, please contact me and let’s see if we can work out a fair price.

A podcast that reboots my iPod

Yesterday I subscribed to a new podcast in iTunes. I synced up overnight and allowed the iPod to fully charge. This morning I undocked and wanted to listen to the new podcast, but every time I try to play one the the podcasts, my iPod reboots. It happens on every one of the shows I downloaded all episodes from this podcast(about 9) that were available. If I choose a different podcast, everything works normally. Weird. The podcast in question is The Linux Action Show which I learned about through digg yesterday. The show does release in ogg and mp3 format and I verified that the files downloaded are the mp3 ones. Anyone experience this? Or better yet, know why it is happening?

Update 1: Found this. It might not be a problem with podcast, but it is the first podcast I subscribed to since I updated to iTunes 7.02

Update 2: Seems to have something to do with the EQ. Read the comments
