Hah, wow. I, uh, think I'd change my identification if I were one of them.

Apparently.

It is an old, second-hand computer. Bah, it had been working fine until a couple of weeks ago. The Internet still vaguely works - I'm successfully submitting tracks to Last.FM from it! But websites won't work.

One suggestion is that I wipe the hard drive and do a clean install. Not something I really desire to do ...

Well It cant be too hard to do a format on a Mac right?

You can always back up everything you need onto an external drive.

I need an external drive first! The one I have was formatted for a Windows, so although I can use files on it via the Mac, I can't edit them or add new files. (And that external drive has stupidly stopped working on my Windows, ugh.)

Almost finished listening to the fourth link now. They're alright, listenable. I'm not about to load BitTornado to get their albums but I don't hate them like I do The White Stripes.

Well If I got my 500GB for $170 bucks, how much stuff do you need to back up?...You should be able to pick up something small like 80GB for less than $100?

Holy crap, they're real? There's a drink named after them, but, y'know, I thought they were fictitious.

Dear Axver,

When did a significant majority of the girls at uni suddenly become quite attractive?

Yours sincerely,

Yeah, but that could still feed me for 3 weeks or so!

Ugh. I hope to find a solution that does not involve needing to wipe everything.

They only have one album. its 10 tracks.

Though as brilliant as they are on the album, they own live.

Edit: Good, I didn't. If I had, shame on you all.

Being a fan of both bands, means I can never be Bored. Jack White keeps my music fix going nicely, with an Album every year for the past 4 years now.
