How to create a ring tone in iTunes

Turns out this feature used to be built into iTunes, but Apple got greedy so they took it out so most people would just buy ring tones.  While this is dumb, it's perfectly legal to create a ring tone for your iPhone using a song you've already purchased or an mp3 you already have in your library.  It uses the 'fair use' clause of copyright law.  Fair use is the same clause that allows you to use your DVR or make a mix tape all while 'copying' copyrighted content.  It's totally legal.

Best Hurricane Tracking Information

Living in the south and being involved in several hurricane clean up projects, i've acquired several useful links that i monitor during hurricane season to make sure i'm up to date on the current status of anything that may be headed our way.  I figured i'd share this information with the world.

There are usually a couple others that i use, i'm still looking for them.
