There is a way to completely rest your iPod (pressing the middle button in combination with the Menu button?).  This resets your iPod and will delete everyting on your hard drive, which allows you then to re-install your Itunes library.

There is also an iPod Installer program that does this for you too.  Check out the iTunes website to download the program.

San Antonio has yet to go above 95 degrees this year, and we are finally drying out after a very wet first half of the year.  San Antonio has had over 30" of rain so far, which is the equivalent for a year's worth of rain in San Antonio.

I remember MisterKenobi boasting that he got some Lava Reflection Vaders before they were actually available and was going to put them on ebay shortly after making that post so he could make money to buy other items coming out for ROTS.  As I recall, nothing happened to him.

Nothing ever happens to that guy, no matter what he says.  And he arrogantly says nothing will ever happen to him.  I just ignore all of his comments now.

I'll probably pick it up eventually. I am still too busy listening to the chinese democracy demo leaks.

You still got a working link to download these songs, EVENFLOW??

The latest additions to GNR's page on Wiki:

  • In April 2007, ex-lead guitarist Slash said, on the Brazilian format of MTV, that he was open to a reunion of the "old" Guns N' Roses: "And I'm not saying never. I would say it would be a good idea to get, just for a couple of shows, to get the original STP (Stone Temple Pilots) and the original Guns N' Roses just to do a couple of shows for the fun of it".

    In July 2007, it was revealed that Steven Adler, Izzy Stradlin, Duff McKagan and Slash would reunite for a one-off performance in Los Angeles to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Appetite for Destruction. Adler's band Adler's Appetite and the Tracii Guns band LA Guns will also play the July 28th Key Club show. That same month, Rolling Stone Magazine featured the 1987 lineup of the band on its cover to mark the occasion.

    In an interview regarding Axl Rose's absence from the one-off reunion, Steven Adler remained optimistic of a full reunion by stating: "Axl and I spoke to each other in Las Vegas recently, and I know there's a chance. It's just too big. Whatever the Stones make when they play, we'd triple it. It'd be ridiculous not to do it. He can't be that goofy."

Seems like the best chance for the original lineup to reunite in a looooooong time.  Lots of reports on the net as well about tomorrow.  Anybody near the the Key Club??

And in celebration of AFD in 2007, here is a link to a guy who has the entire GNR concert at the Ritz in '88 on YouTube:

Let me know how that one works.  That's the next piece I'm after for is the FM transmitter to hook into the car.  I need to upgrade the speakers in the car as well, so maybe upgrading the deck isn't such a bad idea either, but I'd rather put the money into the speakers if I can get a decent FM transmitter. 

Hey MORGBUG, I've finally got my Kensington FM Transmitter.  My first impression is that it is very good.  I had a Belkin transmitter for my video iPod (a piece of crap) and a Griffin iTrip for my iPod Mini (not bad, but not great either), but this Kensington model is terrific.  I like the fact that it plugs into 12v adaptor, drawing power from there instead of the iPod, which is what the iTrip and Belkin models do.  I had to find an empty station that gave the best quality, but I was impressed with the clarity and volume.  The digital tuner also allows for easier programming, and it allows up to three preset settings in case the sound isn't the best on the default station.

These are just my first impressions, so I'll post more as I spend more time with it.  Overall impression is favorable.  This transmitter may prevent me from spending the big bucks to replace two car stereos.

EDIT 8/3/2007 - I'll just edit my last post since I was the last person to post here.  in short, I've have the transmitter for a while now, and it is exactly what I would hope for.  No need to buy a new stereo with an input jack, since this transmitter works perfectly.  The sound is clear and I can blast my speakers without any static.  For some reason the transmitter does not tune to any FM frequency of 87 FM.  These stations are ideal in most area.  However, I read online that there is an "easter egg" in tuning that frequency.  I haven't had to use the 87 FM freq yet, but it's good info to know for trips and such.  HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!  It will work with any iPod that uses the bottom input female plug, like the mini, Nano, and Video iPods.

And there's a few swear words and a little discussion about masturbation. 

"Happy time!"  ;D

I'm sorry, I know that part wasn't appropriate for kids, but that had me laughing.  Very remincant of "American Pie" back in the day!

TRACY, as for the rest of the movie, lots of action and transformer violence, but there are scenes that will fly over your kid's head.  Megan Fox is "eye candy", so her scenes are sugestive.  I've read that some images of the Decepticons are 'scary' for younger kids, but the movie is generally free of anything gory.

So is the 20gb coming down as well?

That price break is for the 60GB version.  Sony no longer makes the 20GB version since retailers only carried the 60GB version.

More brilliance, from me this time.

I ran my Shuffle through the wash (gym shorts pocket), TWICE.

And after a night to air dry (caught it before it went into the dryer) it works.

The Shuffle (old style and new style) are fantastic innovation, but I wonder how many new versions will end up in the trash, washing machine, or dropped without their owners knowing about it!?

I'm very happy with my new 30GB 5th Gen Video iPod.  I have all 6 SW films on there, as well as some basic music videos.  Also was able download some YouTube videos (which look a lot better on the iPod than the computer).  I have even added the Clone Wars animated series.  I have about 20 photos on there as well, and over 1500+ songs.

I just purchased one final FM transmitter:



iLounge.com recommended this as the premier FM transmitter.  I've tried other trasnmitters with varying success, but if this doesn't work, then I'll have to look into replacing the car stereoes in both of my vehicles.  :-\

Here's my current Mustang - 2006 Ford Mustang V-6



The gas mileage is OK, but considering my drive to work is 6 miles round trip with 10,000+ traffic lights, my mileage can't be too good.  :P

So I'm thinking about buying an ipod dock stereo and I'm leaning towards the Bose:

Bose Ipod Stereo

But I'm open to cheaper alternatives that have excellent sound quality.  Does anyone own or have experience with the Bose (or other brands)?

If so, I'd love to hear your insights.

Well, Bose is usually considered the best.  There are so many stereo/iPod docks it's insane.  Any time I have an iPod question, I usually check out iLounge.com.  They have reviews of iPod accessories.  I've always wanted the iHome, tho.

I wanted a AM/FM/CD/Radio/iPod compatibale unit for my desk at work.  After deciding I didn't want to spend $100+ for a radio at work, I went with the simple alarm clock.  Most alarm radio clocks have input jacks for MP3/iPods.  The speakers are, of course, basic, but the sound is good enough for my office.  I don't need to rattle everybody's desk at work with my speakers anyway... ;)



My other diliemna is trying find a way to hear my iPod in my car.  I got a free (after mainl-in rebate) Belkin FM transmitter, but it stinks.  I've read that the FM transmitters are weaker now than a couple of years ago b/c of some new FCC regulations.  I want to install a simple plug-in jack into my car, but the dealership has quoted me $250-300.

On a sidenote, I finally got my 30gb 5th Gen Video iPod.  I am very impressed with quality of photos on the screen.  I have also been able to rip the Star Wars PT onto my iPod.  The sound is alo very good considering the iPod's capabilities.  The sound effects sound great with my regular in-ear headphones and especially with some better quality behind the ear headphoens.  Still need to add the OT now...
