Round 1 is done.

Well I got my iPod back yesterday afternoon, replaced, re-custom-engraved, and re-asonably quickly, too. I haven't loaded it with songs again yet, since I've been STUDYING AS IF PHARMACOLOGY WERE BREASTASES for days now. I just got out of my first pharm comprehensive which runs from 10-4:30. I finished at 1:45, so I am reasonably confident (much moreso than I thought I would have been). It was all done on WinWord so nobody would know anyone's handwriting. We all had to choose a word to link us to the test without using our names. Mine was, of course, triangle. (well, you try to be fancy after exuding pharmacokinetics all night)

So I've got a shoutcast streamripper running 24/7 now (holy hell I wish I'd found that sooner) and with any luck I'll have that 30 Gig iPod filled up with music very quickly. I was actually kind of hoping that they would notice the pry marks on the cover and not honor my warranty, so I could have an excuse to buy one of those shmancy iRivers I've been drooling over. But, oh well. Unless someone (who's a "toxicologist, biker, skunk") wants to buy an iPod?

And I've got a welding class coming up this weekend in Houston. I'm going to have to get up early to go to that one.

streamripper? What's that?

It's a program that continuously rips a shoutcast stream (internet radio) and saves all the songs as .mp3 files. It's dubious morality is balanced against its complete anonymity and ability to rip many streams simultaneously at any bitrate continuously until the hdd fills up.

I use one called StationRipper (http://www.ratajik.com/StationRipper/) and it's pretty simple, pretty low-tech. Pretty much any genre has dozens of stations running for it. It's been running for almost 24 hours straight and I'm at 4.1 gigs. I've got over 200 gigs open to store on if I were so inclined, but.. even I couldn't listen to that much.

Happy listening!

non ferrous or ferrous please?
welding is cool! conquer stick welding and then any other kind of welding is easy. I own with an old buzz box welder!
