Maybe it's trying to tell us all something about what to listen to.

I could see it not recognising a lot of my Lookout! records stuff, but the Foo Fighters?! Phail. Didn't recognise Linkin Park either. But it knew the soundtrack of "Live Freaky! Die Freaky!"

Unrelated: Have you done a running diary of Let It Be or Let It Be..Naked?

In the railway/public transport world, the US is notorious for shocking provision of public transport, especially outside of the northeast. In the 1950s, the car lobby was extremely powerful, and sure you got all those interstates out of it, but tram networks were ripped up everywhere and passenger trains largely went bankrupt. Australia and New Zealand followed this trend, though not to the same extremes. Melbourne completely resisted and is now blessed with the best public transport in the Southern Hemisphere. It's a big factor in why I live here now.

Oooh, neat. I'd certainly advise you to do your research when you do get a camera, and it's true you get what you pay for. My digital camera's a nice one just for casual use and came at a cheap price, but it's not ideal any more for what I want to do, now that I have a clue about photography. Plusi t's terrible in low light and nighttime.
That's good, I'm glad.

Oh, wow. You know a lot! I sure have been learning a lot these last couple days! That sure does not surprise me out of the US. Not a lot does, anymore. I think I'd prefer to take a train over a bus anyway...I don't drive and I hate buses! Melbourne sounds like a pretty awesome place!

Yeah, I will definitely be doing that. I don't need a camera that isn't good in low light. So I will definitely be checking into it. I'm not looking for some big, expensive, professional like thing, but a relatively nice one, of course.
Then I could do some pic spamming here.

(No, I remember you mentioning you'd made 22,000+ posts elsewhere.)
It's actually closer to 24,000, I know it's above 23,000 but yeah.
It's nothing compared to yours though, even my message board posts put together. But I had been known (and had my rank as on other message board) as a post whore.

I just never really posted a lot on here until recently because it took a long time for me to feel comfortable and even then, I hardly ventured out of familiar areas.

Wow, that's just bizarre. If only I owned physical copies of a lot of my seriously obscure Kiwi stuff. I'd love to see if it recognised that.

And no, I haven't. Want some lulz from my musical blasphemy, eh?

Well, you did give Abbey Road a fair shake. I don't agree with said shake, but you gave it one. Just wondering if you'd done any others.

I can't explain my insane post count. I guess I've just been around on the Superthreads more than other people - despite blitzing my studies and having the most active social life I've ever had! I've now got at least 23,000 from Superthreads alone, and probably another 10,000 from the setlist parties during the Vertigo Tour.

I don't post much elsewhere though - the other forums I do infrequently post on, I just don't really feel part of the community, while I do here. I'm quite comfortable here, so I don't really feel any need to seek out other communities anyway.

If recovery of iTunes files doesn't work, I may be asking for assistance from the ST for a while. I'll let you know.

I've probably had a total of 10,000 odd posts over a few different forums of the same community, since 2003. I actually joined Interference because a guy there joined, too. He's one of the guys I made a Chris Martin fan site with three years ago.

That still leaves a lot of posts from other places. Wow.
You post lots and lots and talk to everyone (which is awesome) and I think that pretty much covers it!

I feel pretty okay here, now. Before, I felt sort of out of place, since I got into U2 (rather BACK into) super late, pretty much missing the Vertigo tour (it ended in December, which is when I joined here. I had been a fan before that, but not but a few months.) because I was having a bout where I was annoyed with them (long story.) and I didn't have internet up until I was 18 anyway. So I don't really know a whole hell of a lot in the realm of like, past stuff, setlists, for example among other things like certain songs I've still never heard and things like that.

I'm one of these people who reads and remembers far too much. Including Pi to 353 decimal places.

Melbourne's my favourite city out of any I've been to. And yeah, I can't stand buses either, and I obviously can't drive due to the legal blindness. Unfortunately, the road lobby of the 1950s touted the bus as a modern replacement to "old" trams, when in reality buses should augment trams where it's not profitable to lay tram infrastructure. Trams operate more efficiently fuelwise, have a far higher carrying capacity, and it's been observed that they enhance property values along their route while buses make no impact whatsoever.

Yeah, I just wanted any camera, since I never expected to be taking lots of photographs - just occasional ones of trams or important things. But the photography bug hit and now this basic camera for occasional use has become a bit of an inconvenience! I don't want anything big and fancy either, but something with some more advanced features and better zoom.

I'll give some more a shot at some point. What's the difference between Let It Be and Naked, anyway? I feel like I do know, it's just not coming to mind right now.
