I spent a good part of this evening working on restoring my iPod, which mysteriously freaked out earlier today. After about twenty restarts, three attempts at restoring the software on it, and three different attempts to reload my music on it, it finally is back to the state it was supposed to be in at 3:30 this afternoon, when I started all this mess.

Presumably there was some random disk partition problem, or something got corrupted. I just hope it’s not a hardware problem. Much as I love the idea of the new iPods, I’m more in love with the idea of not being $400 poorer.

[To the tune of Elton John, “Bennie and the Jets,” from the album “Greatest Hits”.]
