ditto.

and iTunes is not a "nice car". Maybe its a nice american car that weighs a couple of tons, runs with automatic gears ,doesnt go round corners very well, and guzzles gas like its going out of fashion. Suitable for some people but not for all.

i don't get the analogy. does iTunes run too slow on your computer? which American cars are you referring to?

Re: fucking itunes blew away all my music
if you lost your data because you were too lazy to back up your files, it's not the PC or MAC that fucked up. seriously.

no... its a fucked up program that deleted files with out confirming the move was done.

novice programming mistake. forgive me for thinking crapple developers could write a simple method:

move(src, dest);
if (exists(dest))
delete(src)
else
error

- my mom could write that code!

btw. . . have you ever done a restore of a [real] backup? probably not.

I don't back up my files before using applications. Is that stand. ops. for using crapple products?

"before you click a button in our application back up the file!" What a fucking joke!

I don't backup because I don't have to. . I raid and I don't use programs that delete files before confirming a move.

I know I'll regret investigating this point buuuuut... "A RAID is not a backup."

On an iTunes-related note: I just received an iChoc from the Advent calendar my girlfriend made me. (Yes, she has an iPod and uses iTunes. )

I backup my system data.

my raid has a lower failure threshold than your backup strategy.

My backup has more letters than your RAID (although you have more capitals so I might have to re-evaluate that argument...).





This seems to be running more smoothly than I expected. No regrets so far.
