oops, forgot to mention, get yourself iPodder software from:
http://www.ipodder.org/directory/4/ipodderSoftware
and subscribe to Podcast feed here:
http://x.msmobiles.com/portal/podcast.xml
.... so you will be getting MP3s automatically.
Podcasting is not is not just about "MP3s" it is about "RSS brought to the
next level"...

No, now I've figured out what the hell you're on about, I much prefer
Simeda's Pocketster for this - it works using Rendezvous protocol, so
rather than subscribing to a feed, you just 'discover' nearby devices
and connect to their music server ;-))

http://www.simeda.com/pocketster.html complete with own
iPod-as-PPC-Disk hacks.

Cheers - Neil

This sounds pretty cool - any ideas of how many people really use it ? Do
the podcasting devices show up as peers with a normal wi-fi scanning
proggie, like wififofum ? I ask because as I was idly wardrving through town
the other day I picked up a peer called "bethanyradio". I thought it might
be one of these sorts of things but didn't try to connect (I never do when
wardriving as politeness requires).

No, it's a different tech : Podcast uses RDF feeds to indicate a
transmission. You need some way to aggregate these feeds, which
normally requires a web server of some sort.

While Pocketster does use a web server to respond to requests for
content, it's not sending RSS. Rather, the protocol itself
("Rendezvous") indicates that a service is available on the network.

Other clients using Rendezvous then 'discover' the service
transparently, so your PPC would 'find' pocketster clients running on
other PPCs which were broadcasting.

In fact, the rendezvous protocol actually puts the PPC's Wifi into
promiscuous mode, which means it's rather acting like an access point
- it will accept connections rather than just be a node on a
pre-defined network.

Probably you're seeing an AP's SSID called bethanyradio, rather than a
specific machine with the Wifi card (peer to peer):

I guess this is going to happen if you set your Configure Wireless
Networks to access 'all available' or 'computer to computer' - if you
set it to access APs only, probably bethanyradio would still be there.
If you set it to computer to computer then bethanyradio would
disappear if it was an Access Point.

Not me. I disable wzc when wardriving to stop wzc connecting me to access
points that aren't mine by accident - and when it is running I only want to
connect to my own AP, hence I don't check "connect to unprefered" if that's
what you mean. It's just wififofum that is showing the hits.

if you

wififom detects either afaik, reported this one as a peer. If I see it again
I'll investigate further (as far as you can do from a distance anyway ;-) )
