That's better...

As a final update to my recently reported computer woes: I got my computer back, complete with new hard-drive, but they weren't able to recover any of the remaining data on the old one. That included all my music files, Safari bookmarks, and all the archived email from my old email program.

Last night, using a third-party shareware hack, I was able to successfully pull all my music files off my iPod, including playlists (no small issue, as the idea of trying to reconstruct 147 playlists wasn't any fun). The program to do it cost me $40, which I figured would be worth every penny if it actually *worked*... and so it did, and so it was. (iPod.iTunes -- I could send a link to anyone interested.) That being the bargain, I can live with the loss of the bookmarks (fairly easily reconstructed) and the email archives (a pity, I did tend to dip into them looking for something particular once in a while, and there are things I'm sorry to have lost, but -- oh well).

Thanks to everyone for the good wishes and offer to help with the music; I'm so glad I didn't have to take anyone up on it! Apologies to anyone I owe a reply to; I'm slowly catching up with my backlog.

Glad your music hadn't been lost forever. Music is a lifesaver :o)
