Crapple

When I plug in my iPod, iTunes crashes.

Update: The iPod lost all the music, but still had the podcasts.  So I tried resetting it - whereupon it lost everything and wouldn't even start up.  Which left me with an hour's commute each way, no iPod, and a notebook with a 20-minute battery life. sad

Update: Reset, reboot, restore, and Unagi-tan is back to life, albeit very empty.  And now it thinks it's syncing.  Ah, there we go.  It's just worked out that it's a 160GB iPod and I have nearly 500GB of stuff in iTunes, so it's selected some unspecified subset for me...

A Terrible Thought

If Hidamari were to return for a fourth season, then Sae-san would graduate and have to leave the show.

Nooooooo!

Though...  Come to think of it, she was a second-year in season one, and only moved up to third year in season three, so we're safe for now.

If Hidamari were to return for a fourth fifth season, then Sae-san would graduate and have to leave the show.

Nooooooo!

Oh, and: Kimi ni Todoke continues as the heir apparent to Gurren Lagann in terms of pure awesome, and K-On Goes to War Sora no Woto ain't half bad either, as it turns out.

Book 5 of Charlie Stross's The Merchant Princes.  The initial adventure story has, at this point, devolved into a seven-sided war spanning which is just the way I like it.

Update: One problem with this series is that Stross appears to have let his political views colour the story, and his political views are asinine.  If those aren't his actual views, he's still badly mismanaged that part of the story.

Pixy, You're Getting A Dell?

But it's shiny!

But it's a Dell!

But the only other option is to buy a 27" iMac and a compatible DisplayPort video card, and the only compatible DisplayPort video cards are the Radeon 4890, which has pretty much been discontinued, and the 5970, which costs as much as this monitor by itself, so the total cost comes out to three times as much.

But...  Three times?  Okay, Dell it is.

Because It Bears Repeating

Stephen Conroy and the Rudd Labour Government are the enemies of free speech and of human rights in general.  They are ignorant and dishonest in equal measure, and their only saving grace is that they are neither competent enough nor popular enough to get their abominable legislation passed through the Senate.

K-On Goes To War, a.k.a. Sora no Woto.

Not bad so far.

Update: I wasn't expecting that (ep 6) but truthfully, it's the only thing in the show so far that survives the refrigerator test.  Of course there'd be something like that.

Update: Odd little show, very uneven, but worth a look.  What is with that clock, though?

Update: Only two episodes left to go?  That might work out just right.

Update: I haven't found the original that they modeled the clock on, but:

Yeah, it's real.  Yeesh, the places people choose to live.

Ow Owwie Ow!

Okay, my auditory frequency response isn't shot.  I can still hear up to about 17.5kHz, which is not much short of the 19kHz or so I could hear as a teenager.

Next time I test my hearing, though, I'll turn the volume down first.
