by pyrex at 30 May, 2006 - 10:38 PM
So um, iTunes just told me it can't read the contents of my iPod and that I should use the software updater to reset it to factory settings. Not even an attempt at fixing it, urgh.

I thought something was wrong when it didn't list the songs I had loaded it with last time, and when one of the playlists had a blank name with blank contents. So, some kind of corruption I suppose.

Now my question is, does anyone know of some kinda magic restoration tool? I have an app to completely back up the music from the pod to the HD, then back again, but god damn what a process to go through.. again.

But on the back I found this odd little switch. What the hell does it do? Do I have to flick the switch if I'm not 'normal'?

ID3 grafitti
by pyrex at 15 April, 2005 - 11:14 AM
So I just got an iPod (wheeeeee) and I'm busy throwing music onto it. But I have a lot of songs that lack ID3 tags, and that works against iTunes. So I'm wondering if anyone knows of any intelligent apps to handle this.

For example, I have an album by Hexstatic. None of the files have tags. I'd like to apply "Hexstatic" to the "Artist" property of the tag in every file, then have an app be smart enough to figure out that whatever comes after " - " which is the usual separator I use between artist name - song title, is indeed the song's title and add that to "Title" property of the tag in every file.

Phew. Hope someone followed that.

Recently the genuine king and queen of Sweden visited Namibia where my mom and dad are at. Dad works at the embassy, where he's the "chancellor". I believe that's the correct title. Highest 'ranking', so pretty much the ambassador.

Anyway, my parents recieved the royal couple before they set out on their own to some hunting lodge to meet the prince of Bavaria.

So, up at 6:45 AM, off to school. Long lecture, crappy lunch, some groupwork. Then a torturously long lecture, about half of which I picked up.

6 PM, finally time to head home, think I'll stop by the tobacconists in the 'galleria'/mall and get some snus. Friend and I do that, go to my busstation.

Friend: "Damn, my bus doesn't come for another 30 minutes, think I'll catch another bus."

So he starts walking back in the mall to the other side where there's more stations. I stand around trying to waste some time, turn my back on the mall.. *BANG! BANG!* I swing around..

I was about to order all the parts today when I noticed they'd raised the price of the 256MB sticks of RAM I was about to order, and it kind of broke my budget (must.. save.. money), but I found out the single 512MB stick costs less than two of the above, so I'm wondering which is better?

Also, should I play it safe at get two 120GB drives or a single 250GB? I've never had an HD crash on me *knocks on wood* but I'm still slightly paranoid, heh.

Very interesting, very interesting indeed. A little quote should sum this up nicely:

"I heard, years ago, about a rule prohibiting the use of the flag in advertising for any means. I committed this to memory, but never looked it up. No one ever believed me when I mentioned it, because I couldn’t cite a reference for it.

I looked this up after seeing a link to this page, which compares the latest updates from Kerry’s and Bush’s blogs side-by-side (ingenious, if you ask me!). It ticked me off that Bush was using the flag, and I decided to find out whether my memory was correct.

It turns out that George W. Bush’s website is in violation of the United States Code, Title 4, Chapter 1, Section 3. He owes $100, or thirty days in jail."

Ok, if you keep up with FARK like I do then you probably know about this guy, but in case you don't: he's been arrested 804 times (and counting). 98%ish percent of those arrests are for being drunk in public. Friggin' classic stuff I tell ya, and check out his 48 mugshots, my favorite of which is below.

Roughly 9½ hours remain of the year that was, at least here in snowy Sweden. Looking back, the year has been kind of.. lukewarm, with the exception of summer which was past boiling point.

The subject of each drawing is the image, or images, that created a popular cultural event.

"My thesis is an attempt to fill in the void in academic work about blogs. Previously in articles and commercial books published about blogs (Rebecca Blood's books and the O'Reilly book, for example), why we blog has been researched using personal experience, with a few indepth interviews, or by analyzing websites. None of these three ways can come close to providing as accurate a depiction of the blogging population - who we all really are, why we blog, and how we're using our blogs - as a survey."
