“9 years after the first release of MediaMonkey 4, we’re proud to announce MediaMonkey 5! It’s a complete overhaul of MediaMonkey that includes a foundation for a more modern UI, a framework that allows MediaMonkey better integrate with cloud/music services, and allows MediaMonkey to eventually become cross-platform and support different form factors.”
I fired it up. Album Art isn’t there. I feel like I’m looking at the periodic table. Went to Views and nothing obvious. I shouldn’t have to work for it. Displays just fine in MediaMonkey 4. Uninstalled (at least for now).

Stuff I bookmarked recently. Some off topic, some not:
The Postal Service is running a ‘covert operations program’ that monitors Americans’ social media posts
“The law enforcement arm of the U.S. Postal Service has been quietly running a program that tracks and collects Americans’ social media posts, including those about planned protests, according to a document obtained by Yahoo News.”
There is no legit reason for the guys with ugly shorts to be peeping at posts. I should be mad but, I’m not on social media 😛
China’s government tied to new hack attacks on U.S. government and businesses
“This is the third major cybersecurity breach to hit the U.S. in recent months — including two in March blamed on hackers linked to China’s government: one targeting 30,000 U.S. victims, including small businesses and local governments, the other hitting Microsoft.”
I would like to know what we’ve done about any of this that amounts to anything.
Ice for Sore Muscles? Think Again.
“Icing muscles after strenuous exercise is not just ineffective, it could be counterproductive, a new study in mice suggests.”
I’ve had many an injury that ‘required” icing. I still have a few. I’ve always despised it.
Les McKeown, frontman of 70s teen sensation Bay City Rollers, dies aged 65
“McKeown fronted the Bay City Rollers during their dizzying heyday in the mid-1970s, when their hits “Shang-A-Lang,” “Bye, Bye, Baby,” and “Give a Little Love” catapulted them to acclaim and earned them scores of young fans in Britain, the United States and beyond.
Their poster-boy status and pop-rock bops drew comparisons with The Beatles, who had dominated the sound of the previous decade, and the unassuming Edinburgh teens became one of Scotland’s most renowned post-war cultural exports.
But “Rollermania,” as it was dubbed by music critics, lasted only a few years, and McKeown left the group in 1978. In recent years he has toured again with his former bandmates, fronting a nostalgia tour that visited venues across the United Kingdom and North America.”
Put on them roller skates and get your grove on to my favs!
