Testing Clementine (audio player)

Despite many a test, I have as of yet to find an audio player that beats Foobar2000. Functionality, lightness, customizability, modularity. I’ve more or less abandoned the proprietary Windows platform, only returning to it for Adobe and Autodesks products and for a small handful of games. Foobar2000 is still my weapon of choice for assaulting my ears with music, despite running it through wine.

iPod, again: Upgrading to 4.02

I’m currently in the process of upgrading my iPod Touch 2nd generation to IOS 4.02. It’s a tiresome process.

First, iTunes 10 works in Virtualbox’ed Windows XP. yay! On the other hand, Apple’s nonstandard USB handling doesn’t work well with it, so once the iPod goes into recovery mode, it can’t be connected. Thus I needed to boot into Win7 to complete the process.
