I use the iTunes one, works fine for me. It has a few bugs, at times insisting that anything you buy in its store has to be the number of that track even if you want to change it, but 97% of the time it leaves the music alone and you can edit it when you want. You can fight and overcome the issues if you have the time and temperament.

 

I gave up on iTunes and its miserable activation system.  We use a lot of PCs / macs / whatevers around here and I was forever running out of activations on the machine I wanted to use at the time.  Hey Apple, if I log in with my account what do you care which machine it is on?  There must be something in using the name Apple which makes people's thought processes go crazy.

I made my first pie from scratch, sauce, pastry etc (admittedly not the chicken, salt etc as im not God), put it all together, baked it in the oven, ate it, and live to type this post. Woo-hoo. a-hard-days-night-john-1 I'm applying to be the next Nigella Lawson.a-hard-days-night-john-5

I look forward to seeing the DVDs of your show on special at the local video store :)

I hope things get better for you, Linde. Glad your classmates were concerned.

Maybe you'll get the book for Christmas?

Nope, I'll just buy it soon. I can use something to cheer me up and I'll buy the standard edition anyway (with pain in my heart)

@MMM No I haven't, except for the last one. Those Beatles-owl-figurines are very cool. Yeah I don't know why chocolate letters are such a tradition and what exactly it has to do with Sinterklaas, but they're good so that's enough for me.

 

Oh and I always use iTunes too to play music, though lately I've been using Spotify a lot, but I've never paid attention to how songs were labelled. I just use it because it has a lot of songs I don't necessarily want to have on my computer.

For those of us with UK style dates, it will be 11/12/13 in a few days :)

That's "UK style"?  Never hear if it referred to that way…  we use it all the time.  

That's how we write dates down too. Day/month/year also makes much more sense to me than month/day/year for some reason

I have an ipod, one laptop, a PC (for backing-up files only) and no interest in that cloud thingy so those activation thingies have never bothered me but i can see why they would others.

Who says May the 18th, isn't it the 18th of May/June whatever? Falls of the tongue easier. Never got the whole month/day/year thing.

 

Added to save a double post.

What is the point of offering books at reduced priced if the p&p brings the price back up to the original stated?

Sorry for not posting a lot recently, I'm working every weekend until Christmas 11am-7pm for €6.66/$9.12/£5.58 an hour...lovely a-hard-days-night-ringo-13 I also got a sore throat today a day after starting bloody work so I'll be wrecked until the 23rd blue-meanie Going to crawl to bed now a-hard-days-night-paul-7That and if I ever hear Mariah Carey's All I Want For Christmas is you, I'll go mental

Too bad you can't wear earplugs or headphones. Those department store Christmas songs actually make me leave stores before I'm finished looking around.

@ Linde, hope you've gotten rested up this weekend and that your coming week is brighter. How big is that L? Do you have any of it left? a-hard-days-night-george-10 Yum, chocolate.

@trcanberra, mom always called me her backwards baby. I said things like row bibbons (instead of bow ribbons) and key cars (instead of car keys). So, does that mean I would have had an easier time learning dates the way the rest of the world does them outside the US?

@meanmistermustard, will we be able to find bootlegs of your cooking shows? Outakes? Will you hoard and protect them as jealously as Apple hides Beatles stuff from the world?

For a monthly payment of $19.95 you will get all the shows, outtakes, links to stores where you can buy the ingredients and cooking equipment. I'll even throw in access to the master tapes so you can make your own programmes for just an extra $4.95 per week. Bargain.

We should all learn from the ways of Apple.

When you make enough $, you can buy the companies that provide the ingredients and start your own cooking equipment line that will be sold in all the top shops. You can get a monopoly going. I'm so looking forward to seeing your methods of advertising. a-hard-days-night-john-3

Oh yippee, I can't wait to buy some overprices merch in MMM's store! I'd be so happy with an MMM cufflink for 19.95! Who cares about the food?

Ah, shucks. Thanks. heart

 

I'm hiring Apple for the advertising. They can sell any old shit for a fortune, would be mad to overlook that ability.

Yesterday was an alright day and so was today, even though it's Friday the 13th. Yesterday I went shopping with a classmate. Had a lot of bad luck with the trains, but we managed to have fun anyway. Today I was free from school early (okay not really, I skipped Sociology because I didn't read any of the theory we were supposed to), the bag I ordered arrived today and the jeweller wanted to fix my watch for free. I am feeling a bit ill though, but I think that's because of stress of school and my friends. They let me down and they did something mean to me so I'm kinda done with one of them. 

 

Yesterday I also went to have dinner with the other volunteers and interns of the company I have an internship at. They gave us Christmas presents: A candle shaped like a Dutch Doughnut (you have to google it if you don't know what it is. It's delicious and us Dutchies always eat it at New Year's Eve) It was made by mentally disabled children, so it's the thought that counts. Then we got a pen tray with a clock and a picture frame on it and last but not least, the best gift, which I absolutely didn't expect:

 

A gift card of 25 euros. You can spend this one everywhere. EVERYWHERE. Totally going to buy All These Years. I saw the standard edition somewhere being discounted to 26 euro's, so with the gift card I'll have it almost for free!

Cool gifts Linde, the doughnut candle thingie sounds delicious. 

Is this it,

 

i did a google image search and tons of donuts come up, all different.

 

Great news on the book. I hope you find it every bit as enjoyable as you think it is and more.

So, it was all just a dream after all? - pity that - the truth about mja is now lost to us all!!

For those who missed it - I could have sworn he said he likes the Rutles more than the Beatles :)

It's like one of those dodgy 'all a dream / timey wimey' things.

I did not! How very dare you!

I said that I didn't like The Beatles at all! That I was drunk when I signed up, just looked at the hairstyles and the trousers, and thought this was a Rutles site, and having been having to pretend ever since so I don't look foolish.

Don't even like The Beatles. Never liked The Beatles. I was drunk and thought it was a Rutles site. Aaaahhh… The genius of the Prefab Four…

Sorry, but I've been faking it, from the banks of the Mississippi…

So - if I use my wife's credit card to buy the US box set, do you think she would notice?  :)
