I have an iTrip but could rarely get it to work right. I got so frustrated with it, I just stopped even trying to use it.

For what it's worth Screwtape, and to play devil's advocate for a moment, I do think LM is fudging the rules a bit in this case. But this is the nature of the beast these days with people making digital music in so many different forms.

I do think though, that your taking it a bit too seriously. Personally, I don't see why there should be any rules at all. Make a 160 minute set, bring it, and let the chips fall where they may. I think that the effort you put into your own would probably stand out in the end.

Just my thoughts on it all. It really isn't worth getting upset over it.


Off to pick up my daughter from basketball practice. Back in a bit

I knew you'd all come back if I waited around long enough I need to get a new AIM account. I deleted it from my computer when I switched over to Yahoo a few years ago.

Holy Mother of....

Do you not see the cycle that you're in? People mock you, and you sit there and take it because "you see the good in people". Perhaps if you stood up for yourself once in a while, people would RESPECT you more, because honestly, RESPECT is earned, not given. Similarly, if you would admit you're wrong once in a while instead of saying everyone else is wrong, you would earn RESPECT this way as well.

Perhaps if you try hard to break this cycle, you'd find people less cruel towards you.Gawd.

I agree that sometimes you don't get treated very well, and I don't like it. But you have to admit that you come off as abrasive in your opinions sometimes. When you don't agree with someone, you need to listen to what they say and respect their thoughts, and if you do that in your replies, they will respect your views more. They won't necessarily agree with you, but they will respect your position. I know you have previously said that it is something you are working on, and I encourage you to continue to do so. It will help you in the long run.

I know you are a good person and mean well.

I've never owned one, but I have friends who do, and I've seen them in action, and they truly do suck.

I'm gonna make sure that when I have to get a new car, it has an auxiliary jack for the iPod to go straight into. That's the way to go.

Well, uh, looks like I've missed a lot. Goes to show what happens when you let a lazy rainy morning in bed somehow turn into a staggering-up-at-1pm kind of day.

I hated my iTrip. It was useless on long trips, because the available stations would change every few miles. I gave up on it after a few tries.

The DLO Transpod is pretty nice. It's an FM tuner and it charges the iPod, too.

BIMM, you made it!

Got to confess I don't even know what an iTrip is. Sad, I'm sure.

I'm still half-asleep and read this as "Trainspod" and thought "awesoooome".

That's cool. Anything is better than the iTrip, I would think.
