I was playing around with /bin/cat on my FreeBSD laptop and I typed cat file1.mp3 > file2.mp3 and now when I play the file, and it finishes a song it goes on to the next song in the same file! This is pretty cool, But you can not seek on to the next song, you have to wait for it to come up. You could use this to concatenate a whole album into one file, although that would create a huge mp3 file.

And I have updated my links page.

I highly recommend Avdshare Video Converter to convert MP3 to other audio formats, like converting MP3 to OGG, converting MP3 to WMA, converting MP3 to M4A, to WAV, FLAC, DTS, AIFF, etc.
