Tod Maffin: "I can't believe I'd never heard of these until tonight when I found them at, of all places, Home Depot. They're "CableCuffs" -- little plastic clamps that act like a pair of handcuffs for your cables."

I didn't see exactly which piece of software that Adam was using for his audioblogging, but I would recommend Total Recorder Live for recording audio on a Windows PC.

You can record sound using a special audio driver that can also automatically remove any Windows sound events from the recording. Or you can just set it to record off the speaker out channel. Once you finish recording, you can save to just about any format (including MP3). The Pro version includes more editing/advanced functionality.

Postscript: Actually, I just heard the software (WireTap) described on the August 27 Source Code program.

The 2004 federal elections are underway in Canada. Here's my site that covered the 2000 federal election.

The Globe and Mail has a page of reports about what's happening with the party leaders' campaigns. What's being served for dinner on the plane and other important notes from the hustings.

Paul Wells of Macleans is covering the ineptitude of the Martin team on his weblog: "Oh yeah. Paul Martin had some events today. But you know what? You pull idiotic stunts like this, and Paul Martin gets blown off the top of the news by his hired clowns."

Warren Kinsella a Liberal insider comes up with this on the ambush: "You know, guys, there's something called dying with dignity. This isn't."

BlogsCanada has a good directory of the various election sites...

2/3 of the way... The Windows Media Player 10 technical beta has changed some of the menu labels. "Copy from CD" to Rip. "Copy to CD or Device" to Burn. But "Media Library" is now Library. Where's the Mix?

Jeffrey Veen: "I'm sitting in a usability session for a Web site with streaming audio. The woman at the computer says, "Oh, Real Audio... I don't like that at all."
