Friday Random 10: getting the Project out of neutral edition

I was able to take a day off today—much needed. Didn’t do much of anything really—though I did move forward on The Great CD Project. (Incidentally, I ended up following a combination of the two approaches I outlined in my prior post. I made the new drive a standalone concatenated RAID array using the diskutil command, told iTunes to move the music files there (using the Advanced tab of the Preferences, then using Advanced | Consolidate Music Library to move all the files there), and then used diskutil to add the old external drive to the RAID array. I had to unmount both external drives first before diskutil would allow me to join the second disk to the RAID array. The final result: one 744.5 GB logical disk. Yeah.) Current Project status: 12,858 songs; 286.52 GB; 38 days, 22 hours, 22 minutes, and 23 seconds of music.

So today’s list is from the iTunes library…
