My family and I will be travelling until Labor Day; you should not expect any new posts on FmH until I am back home. Enjoy the last week of summer!

This is something I’ve been curious about and don’t really know where to ask. I like to update my music collection with the little thumbnails of the album art that iTunes displays in the lower left corner. I notice that the songs to which I have added art are updated on my iPod the next time I synchronize. Could there possibly be a hidden mode on the iPod that would display (lo-res) images of the album art, given that the data is there, or do I have to wait for the next-generation machine? Any iPod aficionados out there who might know?
For the President, Special Setup Is Planned at Convention
“When Mr. Bush accepted the party’s nomination in Philadelphia in 2000, he stepped up to a typical battleship-style stage, with multiple video screens and a sweep of stairs leading up to a lectern.
