I just replaced my iPod's battery 
Saturday, 1 October, 2005, 00:43
I got the battery from iPodJuice.com. It took literally 15 minutes from start to finish. The part that took the longest was getting the iPod open. Thankfully, iPodJuice supplies a tool that facilitates taking the thing apart, but getting the hang of taking the thing apart takes a minute or two. Now that I've done it once, I'm confident I'd be able to do it again for a non-mini, non-nano iPod.

The advertised battery life is ... well, much longer than 30 to 60 minutes, that's for damn sure :) It's charging right now, and I was glad the thing powered up, spun the hard drive, and showed my songs :D

Anyway, the weekend's coming. I'm glad. I'll be sleeping quite late tomorrow ...

Look at that ... it's the 28th already. That means I will have a nice surprise waiting for me in my checking account Friday night :D I've never had Direct Deposit before.

I'm going to start working with eMbedded Visual Studio C++ 4.0, developing something for my HP iPAQ 4155. I have to get the hang of it ... gotta find some documentation and stuff. I hope the GUI stuff isn't as much of a pain in the ass as it was with Visual C++ 6.0. Hell, it's the reason I used FLTK for all the user interface stuff in CS526.

They're right.

I wrote this post yesterday, but the server was refusing connections for some reason yesterday, so I didn't get around to posting it until now. Anyway ...

The iPod Nano is indeed "impossibly small," as Apple says. You can barely feel the thing in the palm of your hand. It would be nice, though, if more accessories were available for it. Apple's advertising iSkin-like pouches for the Nano, but they're not out yet ... I mean, come on. People want these things when they buy their Nanos, not two weeks from now :rolleyes: That being said, I'll still check in various places to see if they're available.

I'm watching the Brazillian Grand Prix while doing some stuff at the moment. It's not packed with the "drama" of Nascar, but it aslo doesn't suck like Nascar :D Just before the announcer announced it, I noticed that the McLarens appear to have some nasty spots on the front right tire ... I don't particularly care for McLaren Mercedes because, well, I don't care for Mercedes myself :D I wouldn't mind seeing Toyota own everyone left and right, but that isn't gonna happen yet, I guess.

I replaced my video card's fan with a big ol' copper Zalman something-or-other. Now there's an 80mm fan on the video card as well, and it's significantly than the stock fan. Of course, the stock fan was making all sorts of noise anyway so pretty much anything would have been quieter :D The same damn thing happened with my motherboard's chipset fan, though ... I wonder why manufacturers put the crappiest fans in the world on their products.

Anyway, I don't proofread, so I'm just going to click Post now.

Just when I thought ...

... I wasn't going to post due to being extremely pissed off, I post anyway ... but that doesn't change the fact that I am still, indeed, quite pissed off.

I think I'll just leave it at that tonight.
