iced tea

I'm a packrat. And I've moved ten times since settling in Austin for University. Among all of my repeatedly lugged and unused goods are two bulk boxes of iced tea bags — the proper kind, meant for brewing — which I've held on to since quite possibly freshman year. One package remains unopened.

Yesterday, I risked personal health and decided to give the tea a try. What does tea stored for multiple years taste like?


I consider myself an iced tea connoisseur, if there is such a thing, having been practically raised on the stuff. As a result, caffeine in the quantities found in iced tea doesn't usually phase me. Not the case here; something in those bags goes straight to the heart.

itunes drag and drop feature

Found a new feature in Apple iTunes today, that I imagine has existed since day one — Apple is incredibly intuitive with drag-and-drop functionality:

Dragging media files to an empty area in the Source List (on the left-hand side of the program) creates a new playlist populated with the files. A serious improvement over my previous multi-click process of locating files for every album copied to the library.

Update 2006-06-03 04:37: Something else I've just noticed: music dropped on blank space in the Source List does not play automatically. Music dropped into the main window plays automatically, on the other hand, against my wishes.
