Having Trouble with your iPod?

Well, techinically, it wasn't my iPod. My dad recently got a third generation nano (which is sexy), and gave his old 4th generation iPod to my sister. Now, my sister is not the most technilogically literate person out there, and within a few weeks had managed to break her iPod. Great. So, after a little fiddling around with it, I realized what was probably the problem. Whenever I turned the iPod on, I could hear the hard drive inside wurr up, and then die. It continued this cycle as it spouted out the error message: So, after listening to this for a bit, I decided to try and fix it.

I hit it. I hit it firmly on the sides, and then on the front. And, lo and behold, after a few firm hits, the iPod worked again. Perfectly. So, if you feel as though hardware is an issue, and not software, then try firmly (but not insanely hard) hitting the iPod. Perhaps that will gar the Hard drive back into a workable state. If you break your iPod, not my fault.

I just recently obtained a version of OS X86 made from Kalyway, however, what I did not realize is that in order to unzip the package I have to have OS X already. I own a legal copy of OS X, but that doesn't count, I don't have it up and running. Which means I have a very worthless copy of OS X86 with me. However, not all is lost. I'm meeting up with a friend who should be able to unzip the file for me, and allow me to burn the ISO inside. With tons of luck, this version will be the one to get me past the dreaded "still waiting for root device" error.

Epic Fail

I have updated this in ages. Mainly because I have been bogged down by school work. However, I have done quite a bit of work with computers, and quiet a bit more to come I am sure. Christmas was an exciting time for me, I got many items which will be very useful, and I have even done some other wild stuff. Like install Kubuntu on my new 4 GB flash drive. That was fun. So, I will start updating this as I continue my quest through the computer world, burning and pillaging until I conquer it all. Which will require a laptop. My birthday is coming up....
