Updating podcasts without subscribing!

I heard about this tip on the Tekzilla show (from Revision3) and it was so great that I wanted to post about it here. I often subscribe to two version of the same show (a small and a HD version) because I usually watch the HD version, but if I know I am leaving on a trip, I'll download the iPod compatible version. I usually leave many version unsubscribed and subscribe when I want the latest episode in that version. The only problem is that the latest episode is not always out when I do so. A great way to update the feed is to hold down "Option" and click on the triangle at the left of the name of the podcast. It will update the feed, but it won't download anything. The episodes that are not downloaded will appear grayed out. You can then choose which episode you want to download. Thanks to Tekzilla and Veronica Belmont for the tip!

A great tip to be sure, but it also comes with one updates the WHOLE feed, so it will also bring back any previous episodes that you may have already deleted out of your library. At least that's what happened to me. It still didn't download 'em, just made them re-appear with the "GET" button.
