If you win the lottery and become a multi-multi-millionaire then you could share the wealth with folk here, lets say $100 for each post and only the top ten posters as the cut offa-hard-days-night-paul-7apple01

I certainly would share. Joe could quit his day job and have time to work on his information pages like he wants to (adding to them and creating new ones). I hope you and the other active top posters would come live on the island and help run the museum. I'd have enough money for us all to live on comfortably. We can make the BB house (or complex of houses) big enough for each of us to have our own private space to get away from it all - I remember that request from the BB house thread. But, even if you declined that offer, I wouldn't be able to refrain from sharing some of the wealth with you.

Oh, lord, I just had a thought. If *certain folks*, like some of recent memory, would make lots of posts just to get to a virtual rooftop or to try to get to top poster status, I wonder what they would do if cash-for-posts were implemented!?!? paul-mccartneypaul-mccartneypaul-mccartney No, that ain't happening. I'd have to figure out another scheme for sharing.

Then folk will just change their display names and we will just get lots of people called ZooGang1973. I'd become zzzzzzzzzzzzz99 within a heartbeat.

You wouldn't be thinking of doing that yourself, now would you? I better get to doing screen captures of names as they exist now. Only existing members get in on the first tier payments.

Personally i think your username is just chance and means little but the top posters a) have put the effort in, b) been here for a good while so are loyal to the forum and supporting Joe & c) it should be a scale on the % towards each person on that TP ladder getting higher for each person, the top person naturally deserving more.

That seems fair.

 

I've just discovered you can display your itunes catalogue by year so all my Beatles albums arearranged by year now.

Oh, I have my library arranged by Artist, then year. So it puts all my Beatles stuff together, then arranges chronologically. Only problem is it just puts anything made in the same year alphabetically, so Beatles For Sale is ahead of A Hard Day's NightToo bad you can't put a full date in.

Nice gif.

Does anyone have an iPod classic they'd be interesting in selling? I really need one, my 32GB iPod Touch ran out of space long ago.

I don't want to use iTunes Match, because it reportedly can screw up your music.

Anyway, if anyone has one they'd like to sell, I'd appreciate it.

Never used iTunes match. I have an irrational fear that itunes will be able to see my music collection and inform the authorities.

I wish I had one. I've got an iPod nano which only holds 8GB. It ran out of space years ago. I've had it for about 5 years now and the battery is starting to be a real bitch. 

It surprises me that iPods are still so expensive. One would think the price would go down after all that iPhone success, not to mention all those apps that make free streaming of music possible, like last.fm or Spotify. I do prefer an iPod, instead of a phone though. I like to keep my things seperated. A phone is for phoning and messaging and the occasional interwebssurfing, and an iPod is for the music. It's just getting a bit hard, as my battery runs out of energy so quickly, and I don't really want to spend 300 euros on a thing like that, because of course, I would want the 160GB iPod Classic, otherwise there's no point really.

I have an 8gb iPod and dont want a bigger size. I like chopping and changing things over and it avoids getting the device filled with rubbish i'll never listen to. 

I dont have a mobile but when i did i only had a small handful of tracks on it as i never carried it around with me. I hate an intense hatred of mobile phones.

I want to have all my music though. I'd keep just my favorites on my iPod Touch, then put everything on the Classic.

On my last mobile phone I used to have like what, 5 songs or so? Never played them. I'm not too fond of mobile phones either, even though I do have a smartphone. I only got my first one about two years ago. I had this giant beast before that, you know, the kind of old Samsung phone you can smash someone's head in with. I didn't really know what I was missing before, but it was just time for a new phone. Now I know what I was missing, and even though Whatsapp has saved my ass a couple of times, it's not really good for a lot. Smartphones are addictive.

I especially hate it when you're at a concert or going out and all everyone's doing is looking on their stupid phones.

Last phone i had was a smartphone - had about 30 menus you had to trawl thru to get anywhere so i gave up with it. Any device that takes longer navigating to where you want to go to than doing the task can go to hell in my view.

Same here - I gave my Galaxy S4 phone to my son and use his old one which makes calls and sends text messages and that's about it.  I have a 7" tablet if I want music, games or browsing, but rarely use that nowadays.

Which Beatles songs mention alcohol or something to do with it? In I'm So Tired, John wonders if he should get up and fix himself a drink. I don't think he meant fresh squeezed orange juice.
