Sometimes I hate it when I'm right.

I frequently postpone projects because I have a sense that they're going to be NIGHTMARES once I get into them. I mean, stuff that SHOULD BE trivial that's going to explode into hours and hours of trying to make it work.

And tonight I slogged into to one of them.

As I believe that I've mentioned, I recently put together a Ning site that will be pulling together all the various bits and pieces out there on the web, and tonight I went to add the various "poetry reading" audio files that I'd done some time back and assaulted y'all with in this space.

Well, those files live over on and I went over to try to do something with them and all I could get is a screen with a Quicktime logo and a question mark! These are .wav files, so I should be able to play them in other things, but all I get is a damn Quicktime thing. I've probably spent two hours fucking around with this now, and am totally frustrated.

I can't seem to download the files, since that motherfucking Apple program wants to PLAY them, and once Quicktime has its clutches on 'em I can't do anything else with them either. I hate, hate, hate Apple and wish to hell so many things on the web didn't depend on Quicktime or I would scrub that piece of shit off my comptuer.

Anybody have any ideas of how to get around this?

I knew this was going to be a fucking nightmare!
