ok maybe it isn't closing. i'm so confused. i do have to go relatively soon as i told my host mom i'd be home for lunch around 4:30. the meal schedules are pretty weird.
I've heard that in some African countries, they just sit and wait until the vehicle is full and then leave. Melbourne has made me far too used to well-timetabled, very frequent service, heh.

If you've time, how are the meal schedules weird? (Due to my late nights recently, my meals have been so wacky. Lunch at 2-5pm, dinner at 8-10pm.)

OMG ITS PEEFAN

and that has happened to my family once with computer and once with external, both times we were able to pay a hefty sum to a guy who could recover stuff. my external with all my pre-2007 september photos is also kaput at the moment and i haven't had time or money to recover it. but unless it literally exploded, just dying probably means someone can recover most of it.

but you can get it all back - itunes will let you redownload stuff you've bought if you explain. also you can get stuff illicitly from all of us.

but that majorly sucks.

Just in case this computer thing goes south, is there any type of program out there that can rip songs from an iPod back onto a computer?

This also probably ruins my chances of my parents buying me a laptop since now they have to buy my father a new computer.

Yeah, if I were you, I'd go for Saturday as the celebratory day, just for the convenience. Stay up past midnight and it counts as your proper birthday anyway!

Ooh, sorry, I worded that badly. I mean books of my own that I was reading in April, but then in late April and through all of May and June, my reading was occupied with university stuff, and now I'd like to return to those books I'd been reading for leisure. But yeah, I tend to hold onto stuff as much as I can. I have some railway books out on these 90 day loans that are very handy, but I often shoot past the due date because I feel like I've come to own the damn things!

I never fully trust Apple to do anything. I'm wary that they could come up with some bullshit.

Sheesh! I hope they can recover the data!
My hard drive just died back in May and I still have it. I dunno whether or not the data can be retrieved since I know next to nothing about the inner workings of a computer but yeah...black smoke? Damn.

Yes, I have such a program on my iPod. Don't know if I could send it to you - once tried to copy it for my flatmate in Brisbane and it wouldn't work for him. But it means there's definitely software out there (mine's yamiPod) and I'm sure some Googling will find something of use if none of us can help.

yes, i once had to wait in like 95-100 degrees for a van to fill up, and you can't get out cause if people don't see people in it sometimes they'll do other stuff. it's shitty. apparently in albania there's a similar system.

meals - well, they have breakfast and then eat a pretty big meal around 3 or 4. it varies from family to family as it does anywhere. people often also have a snack in between breakfast and the big meal ("lunch") and/or a snack at like 8 or 9pm. but not necessarily. most of us brought sandwiches to school to tide us over until lunch around 4, but last weekw ith my new host mom i didn't, partly cause i was too lazy/polite to ask and partly cause her lunches are so big i'd rather have been hungry for a while than even more overfull in the end.

I still loves you, sis.

I guess it's not as bad as my typo of it. Once someone asked me where I was and I, while sober, typed "Zohio."

Wow. How the fuck does that happen?

Hope the tech people can get your family's data back.

if the computer was a pc, click reveal hidden files and you will literally be able to drag the songs back on. they are stored in 100s of folders on your ipod as files with 4-letter names. i did this when my external died (it had my whole itunes on it) and most songs retained their info when i moved them back to itunes, but some were still 4 letter names (1%?) and i had to listen to figure out what they were. could suck if that happened to bootleg songs, for example.

if you don't want to be a cheapy and do the manual thing, you can pay 5-20 dollars, google it.

Where does this option for revealing hidden files come up?
