Apple has dropped firewire support in the new iPods.
If I plug the USB cable into the front of feige, plug the other end into the dock, and drop Meson II into the dock, Feige reboots instantly. If I plug Meson II directly into the cable, no reboot.
I'm rather annoyed about the dropping of firewire. It /is/ noticably slower copying files.
I'm REALLY annoyed about the rebooting. I'm hoping now that I've gotten it thru all the reformatting and updates and whatnot it need to work with windows that that won't happen anymore, but I'm going to wait until I finish syncing before testing it out. If I can't use the dock, I'm going to be quite irritated.
Still to do: video transcoding. Gotta rip me a movie and stick it on there, as well as more useful things, like some of my TV shows. Ooh, daily show clips!
Also: she's still a sexy bitch.
Meeting Jonathan Coulton rocked my little socks.
Harry Potter 4 is a long-ass film, but Damned Good, of course.
So, I'm gonna say, on balance, a good day, with some work needed to clean up the messes.
