  1. Thx B, But iPod>Enable Disk Use doesn't appear when I reconnoiter to Edit>Preferences. Perhaps I have a newer & more nefarious edition of software that quashes that. Ian
  2. Um, let's see, if you plug it in, doesn't iTunes open on you Win 7 machine? Oh yes it does. And I object. The hard drive contained within my pod should behave like one. I should be able to access my files as I see fit. They should not be sequestered to a proprietary piece of software . I shouldn't have to to perform guerrilla warfare to listen to a song or two. I
  3. I don't even want to transfer music files from my iPod touch onto my Win7 machine. I just want to plug the bloody thing in & listen to some tuneage once in a while, as if it were just another storage device, which it is. Apple is no better than MS: A pack of robber barons conniving to monopolize the market. They just have more fetching make-up & slinkier lingerie. Tips & tricks would be appreciated. Thx, Ian
  4. That's the usual method so long as you have nothing to lose and you know how to regenerate a working system. I
  5. Yes. Recovering the windows partition will take some minor Linux/Unix tuition, but viewing it should be pretty much automatic. I
  6. Pick up a Knoppix LiveCD and boot from that and make your modifications from there. I
  7. For Father's Day my kids just bought me the new Wolfmother CD and I haven't stopped grinning since. Pure1971 with minimal signal adjustment. It's just killer, straight out of the amp. One part Sab, one part Deep Puurple, one part Zep -- it's the real thing. These guys don't care, they just smoke. I
  8. Matis Yahu, the rappin' reggae rabbi. Take it from me: This guy is killer and his band just smokes. I
  9. You gotta take a grain of salt. I used to fire up meth intravenously thirty-five years ago as an adolescent. I :filtered:ed up madly. It's an ugly business Nevertheless, I recovered somewhat. Being a citizen requires you to conjure some form of imagination and that's what saved me -- I do and have always believed in the paramount value of the combination of collective and individual rights. I
  10. I wouldn't be too happy to meet any of you pissant buggars.But I suspect you'd cherish similar sentiment. I'd hope at least. I
  11. ? Have you noticed, lad? Turkey and Iraq are neighbours. They are involved. I
  12. OK, It's not only reason, but I suggest it does loom large in US foreign policy in the region. Do you honestly think the Yankees care about Aussie sentiments? I
  13. I agree. The only reason the American military is still there is to prevent the establsihment of a Kurdistani state that would euchre their deal with the Turks. I
