Obsessed with music, Outlook list

By Mark Gibbs, Network World, 10/24/05

This week we take a break from our current VoIP obsession and instead 
focus on some of our other obsessions.

Music, for example. We have a large collection of digitized music and 
we'd like to preserve the context of an album's context. It's irritating 
to listen to an album we've ripped where the tracks on the original 
flowed from one to the next and the player pauses between each track 
because they were ripped into separate files.

Of course you could rip the album to a single file but then you would 
not be able to easily find the start of any particular track. In short, 
your choices are imperfect playback or unmanageable content.

If you, like us, have theorized about a standard to fix this, theorize 
no longer. A group called ID3 is working on a proposal to add table of 
contents and chapter data to any file that uses the ID3 tag.
