Well, it's been a while. Where have I been? Well, for 10 days, I was travelling in Turkey. For the past several days, I've been trying to get over a bad case of jet lag. Add to that the last couple of weeks of class and a misbehaving iPod, and you've got one busy Scott.
Ah yeah. The iPod. Man, if there's someone out there in blogland who can help me with this, I'd be much obliged. For the past several days I've been trying to get the iPod to synch up with my Windows XP machine, but to no avail. They've simply stopped talking to one another. They won't even be seen in the same room together. I'm contemplating very expensive therapy, but if anyone else has a solution, I'd be happy to hear.
On another note, and this isn't what I meant by therapy, I've finally decided to convert. That's right -- I'm switching from Windows to Mac. Truth be told, I've always been a Mac person at heart. My first real computer was a Mac. But like a fool I took the easy path in the 1990s and bought Windows machines, and then got so caught up I didn't think I could go back. But the truth is, I'm must tired of Windows. Let's face it, Mac is easier to use, and it's a cooler machine with better system architecture and a more creative interface. I'm saving box tops as we speak, and expect to be fully Mac-friendly by the end of the summer.
Maybe this will be the therapy that gets my iPod up and running again, but who knows. That's a separate issue.
Ok, back to real blogging in the morning.
