FLAC in Toast... and housecleaning.
Somehow, I'm very surprised that Titanium Toast (7.0.2) plays FLAC. It's one application I really ought to purchase. Someday. I really shouldn't be surprised though - Toast does almost everything, and has continued to surprise me, from time to time. Like DVD vob support, compression of said vobs... handling bin/cue files...

Yeah, anyhow. Completely cleaned the bathroom today, as well as the stove. The bathroom itself wasn't too bad - there was a very large random quantity of dirt in the mini-carpet thing we keep in there, and there was a decent layer of accumulated dust in the corners. Someone bought and left a tile/basin foaming (teeheehee~ foam!! It's just like shaving cream that we used to play in elementary school. Anyone remember?) cleaner, so I used that. So the tub's been completely and throughly cleaned. Floor... mostly. I wiped down parts of the toilet as well, at least behind the seat... and also the sink. I had done the mirror the second or third night after I got back, so that was still pretty clean.

The stove... was pretty nasty. While I had usually covered the things under the heating coils with aluminum, to avoid having to clean those, and the area below it... the subleasees didn't do that. So there was a thick puddle of oil-stuff below the two front stove things. That took a while. But now the stove is all shiny and clean again. =^^=v Once the... things-under-the-heating-coils dry, I'll wrap them in aluminum, and install them again. Microwave's been wiped down as well.

But question to those who have your own apartments/places:
How often do you clean? What are your limits? (As in, how dirty will you let things get before you go on a cleaning frenzy / or do you keep a schedule and clean, say, once every two weeks?) And how much does the little things bother you, like piles of crumbs in the corner, or number of sauce drips around the stove?

i clean when i feel things are getting too messy; i used to clean on a schedule but it was a little unnecessary since i've become rather obsessive. i keep my personal space clean - it's usually pretty spotless. the little things do bother me - when the floor feels dirty, i swiffer it; when the stove looks bad, i clean it. my limits are unusually high, because i live w/ 2 roommates and i am very conscientous and paranoid about getting so dirty that they are unhappy about it too. good luck! post pictures of your apt :)

I clean on an almost-weekly basis, but it's mostly just tidying up and wiping down any spills that have occurred in the past few days. I like a semi-neat environment, but I don't have the time or energy to keep it tidy. Therefore, controlled chaos works very well. As long as it's been cleaned within a month, it's clean enough.
