iTunes has so many problems. I remember using the 'remove duplicates' function a while back and it deleted half my library because the dopes who wrote the algorithm apparently never thought to check more than basic label data for what constitutes a 'duplicate'. Bye bye live albums. angry.gif

Also, on someone else's iTunes I noticed she didn't have the 'Add Folder' function (she had a newer version). I never upgrade my iTunes so I got to keep it. When she reformats her computer now she needs to add her entire library by selecting the files in every individual folder.

I've been using Foobar lately and I'm fairly happy with it. I was using vlc for a long time and I still use it for movies, but some music formats, .flac in particular, get distorted in VLC.

That's how it works when the alternative is reburning every CD in her collection. She rightfully doesn't pay Apple to provide a service she doesn't need or a product she already owns.

I guess I forget some folks have never managed people and assume they know how to handle business.

To me, the big issue was more about the pressure play by the direct. Or, a manufactured emergency, if you prefer. If your direct is presenting things that won't stand up to scrutiny, that signals either carelessness or a personal agenda.

I used to like iTunes, until this most recent version. The new version is completely counter-intuitive.

Actually, when I reformatted my laptop I installed a clean version of ITunes, which scanned the drive for all the music I'd restored. It found music I didn't know I had.

(but the interface still sucks)

iTunes is SUCH a piece of shit.

Apple makes great hardware, and pretty good operating systems. Their user software is almost exclusively garbage though.

Skeuomorphism, anyone?

The T is closed. Driving is still banned until 4 PM today. No cabs in sight. Practically everything is closed.

I'm trapped frown.gif

This sucks. Maybe I'll have to raid the mini bar.

fines and jail time for the driving ban seem nonsensical to me. not the driving ban itself, which makes perfect sense, but the fact that we have to threaten to fine people for something they should do as a matter of self-preservation is such a uniquely American thing

what i would do as governor is to say, there will be no emergency services, tow trucks or National Guard to come rescue your shit if you are stupid enough to go out there. if you want to go out there and die, that's your choice, but we're not endangering anyone else to come after you. this should also apply to people who want to cross the Atlantic in a dinghy or some shit like that

There is a theory that you could eliminate all dangerous driving by replacing airbags with a 6 inch spike. People would be so terrified of a bloody and instant death that they would drive with due cre and attention.

It's kind of a psychopathic way to fix a problem, but I'm all for it.

When I said 'reformat' I was talking about a wiped drive. Also, iTunes does a horrible job of finding actual music and it's much easier to just select a few pre-organized folders to add to the library than to have to remove random non-music or unwanted files found by iTunes.

Until a wire arcs and sets it off while your cruising down the road..
