downloading on mac

Hold the control button and click the mouse, or you can hold 2 fingers on mouse pad and click the bar on the mouse pad for a laptop. Both are the same as right clicking. When the choices pop up click download as. I just put it on my desktop and make sure it opens with iTunes. It should autimaticaly put it in your library. Hope this helps...

Re: downloading on a mac

Heynow! ejvongher,
If you do not have a two button mouse or Apple Mighty Mouse, hold down the "control" key to activate the contextual menu and select "Save Link As..." That should do it. You can also just click on the link, wait till the browser loads the song and then go to the "File" menu and select "Save Page As.." Either way, your golden :)
Happy listening!!

Naming the songs and putting them into an album in iTunes

Last year the 30 Days of Dead automatically downloaded into an album Titled 30 Days of Dead. This year, they just randomly drop into downloaded songs without an album. The titles are severely abbreviated. Is there a way to group them into an album, (not a play list), and rename the songs in iTunes?

i-tunes

Right click on the song in your library.
Left click on "get info".
Everything you ever wanted to change is there. You can put the song name instead of the one that down loaded, name the album what you want. Put track x of x, etc...It's a breeze. I take the shows date and venue and put it into the comments section 'cause I'll never remember it on my own!!

re: cover art?

i must admit, i have no talent, either (c:

i just did the same as last year ... which was creating a new folder, labelling it '30 days of dead' (this year, adding 'volume 2') and saving the music there. (i should mention that i use windows media player.)

the artwork i got by right-clicking on the '30 days of dead' logo, and then pasting the album art to my folder's icon.

i like the logos, and they're just different enough from each other. also, for whatever reason, the background colour for last year's logo was black, and the background colour for this year's logo is off-white ,,. which is a real bonus, in my humble opinion.

i hope this helps :)

winners

i guess they don't post the winners this time around, seems like they did last year, but maybe for privacy reasons? not that it really matters but it would add to the fun to see who won, if only just to say woohoo! look at you! nobody has logged in to rub our noses in it yet (in a fun and friendly way of course) and declare their victory, perhaps afraid of someone tracking them down and trying to take their cheeseboard. maybe the winner could post their sweet success so they could collect the glory and some congrats from fellow contestants.?? well at least thats what i was thinking at this moment.

Date guess

After doing some digging around im going to guess its a concert in 1985. Not going to say month or day cause I want others to enjoy this awesome game. So if you find the concert im talking about, you will probably agree. My other hint is if your a fan of the Broncos its in the city of one of our rivals, and I don't mean Oakland. They didn't play many the music never stopped Good luck hunting and have fun! Even found a gem when I was digging around in the early 1980's check it out its an interview/concert http://www.archive.org/details/gd1981-00-00.interview.90795.flac16

Guess

Im just making a general guess here, the keys indicate something of the early 80's or mid 80's like 85 in particular. Jerry's voice is still pretty decent at this point in time so im going to have to guess in the early 80's not so much 85 but then again 85 held many gems so I could be wrong.

What fun indeed!

Thanks for the great music and dandy prizes! I recently saw Furthur in Monterey (first time they played the Fairgrounds since Monterey Pop Fest!) and I was completely blown away! I'm looking forward to the next west coast tour! Have fun all you east coasters - it's sure to be a good time! Peace.

got it too

This one was a bit cryptic since this combo occurred regularly. But the combo is what makes it easier. If I had to pick out just one of the songs I dont know if I could've done it. There was another combo played that night--much rarer.

Nice prize too. Those photos are not cheap. So much for "sweeping out the attic' type prizes.

Hold down the control key

at the same time that you click on the download link. This will give you choices as to what to do with it. I chose to save it, then dragged it into my iTunes window.

I don't have a mac, so I can't help there. I would be willing to send them to you. I can either try email or wait until the end and send you all of them on a flash drive.

30 years of the Dead!!

I'm loving the 30 Days of Dead once again. Good fun playing the game with my handy Deadbase and comparing note for note the different versions through the years to narrow down my guess. I'm sure I'm doing well. Good luck to all. Thanks to the team for everything running so smoothly this year. I wonder if we'll be treated to a few "A" and "B" versions of some of the songs this year again, maybe even "C" for the Children who would not be good, goodnight, goodnight goodnight!!

These 30days just run soooo smoothly!

I have to compliment the crew that set this second coming of 30 days up for doing it so well. I remember the horrors of the first installement - all the trouble we had to go through to get that sweet music. Now everthing is working "absolutely perfect" and I´ve had no problems whatsoever....Bless you people!

very nice

not a real fan of the shows from this year in particular, but its a pretty hot show. there are actually more pairings of these 2 songs than I expected. maybe there was something about "The Music Never Stopped" that made Jerry want to rock out a "Don't Ease Me In."

thanks David, another fine choice.
