So looked around google for a way to split mp3s into smaller chunks and found
This is how I load up the mp3 player with podcasts now:
Copy those 'casts I want to a tmp directory and then:
mp3splt -f -a -t 5.0 *.mp3
Which splits all the mp3s in the current directory into 5 minute chunks.
Then copy those chunks to the player mounted on /mnt:
find . -name "*00.mp3" -printf 'cp -v "%p" /mnt n' | sh
Off to the competition!
[update: Griffin got 3rd and Trevor 6th in novice Epee 12 and under while
Spencer came in 4th for 13 and older]
