Computers
 
Hey everyone! Does anybody know if we will get our Drew computers at orientation, or if they will be shipped to us over the summer? And which did everyone pick, anyway? I got the upgrade one, but I don't think there's a lot of difference.

You will recieve your computer during Orientation. Usually they are given out on the Saturday of Orientation. It will most likely remain that way, though it is not set in stone yet.

ooh thanks for asking, I was wondering about that! I got the cheaper one cause I didn't see a difference except for their weights... there's prob. something else of a difference though...

07-25-2005 10:44 PM

I dunno about you all but I cant F-ing wait to get my comp. because my desktop at home is literally on the verge of exploding its so loaded with viruses:eek:

avg has a free antivirus program if you don't have one installed.

If you do, scan with it!

The weight and size is really the only difference. The R52 (the bigger one) also has a FireWire port where the T43 (the smaller one) does not. Otherwise, they're exactly compatible.

the commercial version of the T43 also has fingerprint log-on. i was wondering if the drew version would as well.

It does not, but the fingerprint scanner does not work with the Novell Client login GINA anyway.

You can copy songs from one computer to another, you just have to authorize the new computer to play the songs. If you are talking about the software instead of the songs, you can just redownload that from apple.com

You can't rip the songs off your ipod, though.

at least not with iTunes. I think there might be various third-party programs that will let you do that, although they're probably against all sorts of EULAs you accepted for iTunes and the iPod.

Not SO. ROb and I discovered that all the music on the Ipod is available in m4a's that you can grab off of it. You need to enable it as a disk storage device and make it so your comp can view hidden files and folders. Under ([X]:\iPod_Control\Music), you can find a bunch of folders with all the music. There seems to be no meta data or any real order to the music, but its there.

As a side note, I hate Ipods.

I cried when I saw this:



That is all.

07-27-2005 11:09 AM

well, kegan, when you bring that up, I remember seeing the files on my ipod. that's pretty funny, that they say you can't upload them, but all you have to do is view hidden files. it reminds me of pressing shift to stop autoplay of copyright-protected cds.

and ipods have become kinda big for djs, because they're a lot easier to carry around than a bunch of cds or vinyl. and if you put them into a machine like the one you posted, golly, they can be used much like regular dj equipment.

Heh, that reminds me when people would give the "advice" of pressing alt-f4 to fix random computer problems or to speed up the net.

07-27-2005 01:23 PM

You mean that doesn't work?!? Okay, plan B. Ctrl-Alt-Delete.



....Dammit!....

:p

07-27-2005 02:13 PM

ctrl-W.

and the best part of that one is that most people don't know it. well, at least fewer people know that then ctrl-alt-del or alt-F4

But wouldnt it be better if more people knew about Ctrl+Alt+Del, tragically 1337?s

Of course you could always tell people to hit Win + U and then strike s quickly. Wont work (or it shouldnt unless they're total idiot) if they see the Dialogue box tho.

That's exactly what I'm saying.



'Tis a sad, sad day.

There are also programs that do it without losing the meta data. I've never actually used any of them so I can't attest for how great they are but I hear about them occasionally

mmm, precious precious metadata.

kegan knows my addiction.

07-28-2005 04:59 PM

cant you just download the i-tunes software and then plug in your ipod, and it comes up with "do you want to transfer all your data" blah blah blah, and you just click ok right? and your playlist comes up?

07-28-2005 07:21 PM

I thought the songs don't transfer, even if the playlist itself does.
