Order Here

Posted by Thoughts and Ramblings on Sunday, November 9, 2003

Well, the entire order is finally here. The problem: the iPod has failed. I took it out, downloaded music to it, and let it charge until it said it was done. Then I took the thing jogging. After playing one song, the thing froze, so, I reset it. Play another song, freeze, reset. After about 5 resets, it only started showing a folder icon with an exclamation point on it. I took that to mean that it was a broken file system. I tried doing a reset on the thing, only to notice that I can hear things rattling around inside. I think the HD arm is broken. Going through the return procedure on the web site was no help because it said that the serial number is invalid. I had to wait the next day to call them to let me try to return the thing. What a pain. I predict at least 2 weeks before I get one back.

On a lighter note, I have realized that I have taken an interest in a certain girl. I don’t want to mention who, because I have not acted on this yet. The issue is that I don’t really know her much, nor does she know me, and I don’t want to ask out someone that I do not know very well. Now it would seem that the answer to this it to get to know her better, but therein lies the issue. I only get the chance to see her about once a week now and she is always busy talking to some of her friends. By the time that she is done with them, she is ready to go home. It seems the perpetual problem is that I can’t even get to the just friends stage but stuck at the just acquaintances stage. I may talk to some others concerning this, but I get the feeling that their advice will be for me to just ask her out. In that case, it may be best for me to wait until the beginning of next semester as this one is starting to wind up with tests around every corner. Did I say lighter note?

Oh well, time will tell with both issues. I have a test tomorrow, and I should likely study for the thing. Until next time.
