    iTunes Radio outage?

    Starting last week, I began to see an uptick in chatter about iTunes Radio listings not being available: users would attempt to load a genre (such as Ambient, or Classical), and receive an error message stating, "An error occurred while contacting the radio tuning service". Not everyone was...

    Admins -- drunken Xmas day Forum servers

    'Tis the season for questions from new users...and the servers seemed to have overindulged at the office party. Post submissions are getting lost, load times are glacial. At least here in midwest U.S., on both Comcast and ATT WANs. If anyone at the host is available to give things a kick...

    Non-filepath-dependent exported playlists droplet

    As noted in this thread on exporting iPod playlists, iTunes doesn't actually require filepaths when importing an iTunes-exported playlist; track, artist, and album names that match existing iTunes tracks are good enough. w00t! I wrote a couple of lines of Perl to strip filepath info (and also...

    Windows users -- help me decipher this Apple article

    Came across this Apple article a few days ago; it's still making me scratch my head. Display the info in the "On Windows" link in the article. Then note this sentence in step 2: "By default, the Windows version of iTunes does not copy all of the music you add to your iTunes library to your...

    ::sigh:: Page 2 troubles, redux

    Sorry for flogging this (apparently dead) horse, but this is really irritating. Yes, I've posted about this before, and Bob sez, "Works fine for me," but something is still wrong. The situation: When I click on an orange page number link (in the "vbmenu_control1" section of the dark gray...

    Apple knows about iOS4.3 sharing glitch

    Seems like someone here was having this problem, but I can't find the post.... According to this MacInTouch reader report (look for Ken Hauck), an AppleCare rep said the company is aware of a bug in iOS4.3 that prevents Home Sharing from connecting to multiple libraries that have the same...

    Adios, Zune?

    Bloomberg News is speculating that Microsoft "will cease introducing new versions of the Zune music and video player because of tepid demand." According to an unnamed source "familiar with the decision," Zune software dev work will now be aimed at mobile phones. No word about the fate of the...

    Looking for a good external CD reader

    Wow, this is my lucky day! (You'd laugh if you could see my grimace from these #@%! back spasms ;-) I just inherited about 3,200 CDs, mostly gems -- what looks to be everything ever released by Chandos and Naxos, lottsa Nimbus, Phillips, Decca Classics, etc. Hundreds of film soundtracks, tons...

    Any first impressions of iTunes 10.1.2?

    Any brave (and/or foolish ;-) souls tried out iTunes 10.1.2 yet? Maybe the 64-bit installer is a bit better behaved....

    Still having trouble acessing Page 2...

    Howdy, Bob; Kind of a bump here, in case you thought the original problem was resolved. Still can't easily access page 2 and beyond for multi-page threads. Here's another example...

    Trouble accessing posts beyond 1st page

    Maybe I've been gone too long and missed some critical little bit....but the "page number" links are goin' all funky on me, For instance, take this thread: http://forums.ilounge.com/ipod-touch/262830-does-any-smartlist-update-new-4g-touch.html. Clicking that link brings me to the first page of...

    How to make "How can I sort Forum topics?" stick?

    The AppleScript forum displays only a month's worth of posts at a time. I can scroll down to the "How can I sort Forum topics?" section and use the "From the..." dropdown menu to set a wider time window, but that change never sticks -- when I next go back to the forum the value is reset to the...

    No more dropdown nav menus?

    Whatever they're called these days...swing your mouse up to the "News", "Articles", "Forums" , etc. links in the orange nav bar at top of this page; used to be that submenus appeared, allowing quicker access to other sections of iLounge from the forums. The "menu items" are still in the html...

    Slow ad servers in the EST morning

    Roughly corresponding to the time of the latest board software update, ad servers seem particularly slow in the morning (Michigan, USA; Central time zone); say, from 6am to 10am CST. On a wired broadband connection it's not a problem, but on a high-latency satellite connection it's quite a pain...

    Any F@H-ers here?

    Woo-hoo!! Just passed 4,000,000 points in Folding@Home. Three cheers for multi-core Macs! ;-) Anybody else around here donating their spare cycles to F@H? And that got me thinkin'...has there ever been a move to start an iLounge team? CPUs are a terrible thing to waste, and it's kinda fun. You...
