New iPod

Well, when I say new, it is relative. It is new relative to me. I got it from a friend, because it isn't working anymore. A 5th generation 30GB iPod which is off the warenty. It broke on him, and I figured I might as well take it. He gave it to me.

I double checked the warranty. No luck, I can't simply replace it. However, it is not completely dead, and it kinda boots up. I am going to hit it a lot and see if I can get it too work. I mean, come on, what is the worse that could happen?

EDIT: I got it to work. This is the second iPod I have managed to get working by hitting it. Hard.

Edit Edit: I gave it back to my friend. Before I had learned that he had gotten a new iPod. I feel jipped. Even though i did the right thing, I feel like I shouldn't have. I feel like he should give it to me. Grrr.... see what happens when you do the right thing?

Installation Issues

Yeah, I tell you. Installation issues. And not the normal program kind. I'm talking about the OS kind. I just installed 3 different OS's so many times, I don't want to see another Boot screen again. Why was it so hard? Because Vista is an Ass. That is why.

I tried install Leopard. Worked fine. Then I would install Vista, and it would boot into Vista. And Leopard wouldn't boot, and so I would stop Vista's bootloader, and that would end up with the computer not booting at all. Then Darwin wouldn't boot into Vista, because Vista is fucked up.

Short story of it all is this. Kubuntu and Grub had to go on the Primary Hard Drive. Vista and Leopard went on the secondary one, and so Grub would boot first. Vista went on, then leopard, then Vista, then Kubuntu, and it is all good. Finally, everything works again. That took way, way to long.

Guild Wars on Mac

Well, I guess I should get back to posting, or else I will drive myself crazy. Besides of course being extremely busy with studying and other work, I have been messing with my computer. Of course, this means that I made it completely unbootable.

I will go over that another time, but let's just leave it at this:
1: Ubuntu Hardy Heron didn't recognize monitor size and graphic cards.
2: Leopard (Hacked) got angry when I tested 4965 wireless card drivers, many kernel panics, didn't respond to me removing the driver.
3: Windows Vista gave me the BSOD.

All that just made me want to reformat my computer. So I did. And now, I am down to only Leopard working, It is temporary, I will get everything back up and running, with many tutorials on how I did so, but in the meantime, hang tight, it will be a bumpy ride.

In the mean time, I wondered if I could get Guild Wars working. Downloaded Crossover Games (not the application version) and tested it out. It is working as I type. Absolutely amazing. I ran the application, and it asked if there were any games I wanted to download. It had Guild Wars available right there. Absolutely wonderful. Guild Wars running on Leopard, this will be a lot of fun!

Well, I found a typo. And it got me thinking, wow, this is a terrible place to have a typo. I mean, the only place worse than this could be the Constitution of the United States. Or the Declaration of Independence. Both of those would be pretty bad too. However, this is kinda funny:

"[School Name]
recognizes the importance of and the significant educational benefits that are derived from providing students and staff member’s access to information technology and the Internet. The Internet is an important educational and communications resource whish provides our students and staff members access to a limitless level of resources and information."

That is a school's Privacy Policy on the internet. Ummm... pretty sure "whish" is
not word. Although, it is rather funny. Got some other good typo's? Tell them in the comments section!
