i could lose my computer. it's doing weird things. first it prompted me to update itunes and i did then it froze, then i totaly had to reinstall but it took a few tries, then (with some help from someone) i looked in task manager and found there were 22 programs running on my com that starts automaticly when i start my computer. then after i got my itunes fixed a week later my com seem to froze up so i had to do an emergency shutdown meaning i had to pust the power button off while i could not get the "Start menu" up and shut down from there. and then i restarted my com it had to do a CHKDSK thing but it froze in the middle of that so i rebooted again, this time i skipped the CHKDSK  and it started but my enire itunes library and playlists were erased (i still had my music file, at least) but i had to start all over again. (it wasn't hard this time because i had the itunes playlists and library exported to a portable drive)

but then my internet kept running slow. i have to use an internet booster because my wifi antenna is weak. most time my com will not automaticly connect to the booster like it should. that makes my internet connection weak. It used to did not matter which connection it used. the internet box is connected to the booster so regardles it works from the booster BUT it is stronger if my com is connected to the booster name (brutus) which is connected to (cablmas) if it says it is connected its connected to "brutus" it is stronger but if the connection is "cablmas" then it's weaker. But my com keeps wanting to go to "cablmas" and at times gets disconnected. plus theres other stuff going on i can not explain. in the meantime, everytime i start my com, it wants to CHKDSK, but i bypass because if i let it CHKDSK, it'll freeze in the middle of it.

So i guess i'm just warning you, if i do not come back on for sometime. you'll know why. i just hope and pray my com is not on it's last leg.

iTunes has been hell for me the past few weeks. I finally got it to sync everything, though the Abbey Road/Venus And Mars cover thing is still screwed up.

No idea. I think its a an ipod 4, its white and has 4 lines for the apps whereas nowadays the new ones have five. A sync will probably sort it out.
