I've got 6 copies of Jay-Z's H.O.V.A

I've got a ton of MP3's, I've finally got (most) of them tagged correctly, but now I need to weed out the dupes. Some albums I have fully duplicated, some albums only one or two songs, but I've got lots of duplicates and I need a good way to get rid of them. I'm on Windows, and would really not like to install iTunes if I don't have to. Help!

How do I stop my iPhone creating multiple calendars and merge them into one?

For some reason my iPhone's on-board calendar comprises no fewer than eight calendars. My appointments are strewn across the calendars quite randomly. When I add a new appointment, sometimes yet another calendar is created. The only way for me to view my appointments in a comprehensible fashion is to view "All". How do I bring an end to this preposterous state of affairs? Is there a way to merge all my calendars into one? I am a Mobile Me subscriber.

Looking for a tool that can take multiple RSS feeds, strip duplicate entries and output a single feed. None of the RSS meshing tools I'm seeing seem to offer the duplicate removal.

Searching for duplicates in iTunes

I wish the Find Duplicate Songs feature in iTunes was a little fuzzier in its matching capabilities. The way it works now is that the artist and the song title have to match exactly for it to count it as a match, which works well enough, but over the years I've had some files sneak in with (or without) a 'the' at the beginning of the song title. iTunes will not match those.
