This looks neat.

How much space will it take up once on an iPod—more than a music CD or less?  Anyone know?

I downloaded it and installed. It takes up about 1.2 meg. Not large at all. It’s very cool actually! I’m not sure how long I’ll leave them on my pod but it will be nice to get familiar with the sonnets again.

It only takes up 186 kb. I’d say that’s pretty managable.

Yep. You’re right. I was looking at the ‘get info’ size on my desktop. Stupid Mac reports it as 1.2 meg due to block size wasted space. The actual size seems to be 191kb. Not exactly sure how much space it takes up on the pod though.

It would be amazing if they provided an index file for those using a main.linx file, but its free so i’m not complaining!

I put it on…...and it’s free!

I love to hear her speak, yet

That music hath a far more
pleasing sound

I downloaded mine on a 20G.  I’m thrilled with the small size of the file, but there does seem to be something weird.  Now when I click Extras, then Notes, it takes about 15 seconds for the iPod to load the notes.  I can hear the hard drive spinning and growling.  Is it normal for the iPod to have more trouble with Notes than music?  (Mine loads each song lickety-split).
