Wikipedia: Podcatchers A podcatcher, or podcast client, is a computer program used to download various media via an RSS or XML feed.[1][1][2] While podcatchers are most known for downloading podcasts (generally audio files in MP3 format), many are also capable of downloading video, newsfeeds, text, and pictures. Some podcatchers can also automate the transfer of received audio files to a portable media player. Although many include a directory of high-profile podcasts, they generally allow users to manually subscribe directly to a feed by providing the URL. Although the core concepts had been developing since 2000, the first podcast client software was developed in late 2003,[3] and became popular in 2004.[4] When Apple added podcatching to its iTunes software in June 2005, it almost immediately became the most popular client.[5][6] Podcatchers[edit] The following is a list of noteworthy podcatchers or software with podcatching capability.

Genealogy With Valerie We have all seen or at least heard of the reality TV series “Hoarder”. It is about people who have an obsession to keep everything they have ever owned and then they continue to add to it. They do this for various reasons but the results are the same: a home filled to overflowing with stuff. This is how I feel sometimes with all the documents, notes, photos and books pertaining to Genealogy that I have accumulated over the years. I do try desperately to stay organized but sometimes it gets away from me. I have limited space and the piles seem to keep growing. Case in point: While I was organizing my Death Certificates’ I found I had 5 copies of my Great Grandmothers Death Certificate. I do the same thing with most of my documents and ALL of my photos. Okay, I will, from this day forward just start calling it Antique Paper and Photo Collecting! I am a professional genealogist, writer, photographer, crafter, reader, wife, mother, and grandma.
