    That's because you need to beware the tank drivers in China, not the cops, per se...

    :lol:

    I'm Zach, huuurrrrrrrrr... I like dudes.

    Anyway, yeah, this is Jeff from Zach's computer. I made it all the way to Seattle, and Ken had to one-up that by going to fucking CHINA. How's it going over there?

    I'm flying to Montreal in August for their album release show. Should be epic.

    And Jeff, I'd show up at the LA Mantic Ritual show...but I have to work. :erk:

    ummm, I think perhaps not... :p

    Aha! This very morning I in fact had my hair cut. It's certainly doesn't get in the way now and takes a lot less time to wash... :OMG:

    yeah thanks fellas, it certainly has a lot of benefits, and so many opportunities with various departments and for advancement. I don't really want to be a traffic cop though, I'd like to get into a specialist area of some description eventually. :cool:

    Being an Aussie cop would probably be pretty cool...

    Has anybody ever upgraded their iPod's hard drive or battery, particularly through Apricorn? Successful?

    Interesting Mark... If I had an Ipod I'd do this because 30GB is simply not enough. 120 is about right.

    For those of you who didn't get my message... I changed my phone number.

    Yeah, I actually have the same problem with my 30 gig Iriver- too small of a hard drive!

    I think it all depends on what generation Ipod you have. If it is old, most places can't get a hold of the right parts. My first MP3 player was an Ipod and, by the time the battery wore out, Best Buy just gave me a refund and I put it towards a new one because it was outdated.

    And, to be honest, I fucking hate Ipods. Doing even a little bit of research, it becomes noticeable quickly that other brands are cheaper and function just as well. They also don't require Itunes.:puke:

    It's not that there is anything seriously wrong with them, it's just that there are cheaper and more efficient products for less. And U2 gets none of your money!

    I hate the iPod as well, particularly due to iTunes. I bought it because it has the most accessories groomed specifically toward it. I'm pretty sick of trying to manage songs just to keep under 27.8 GB on the darn thing.

    But I think a new 120-GB Video iPod is about the same price as the upgrade these days. I may need to look into it further.

    I'm home!

    In Phoenix, I ran into Rudy, SX's old sound guy. Got to thank him for running sound at some of my first concerts, haha.

    Now I can start wasting time on the forum again!
