I didn't drop off the face of the planet, my laptop died last Monday (in the middle of doing my law project no less). Thankfully my friend has a spare laptop which she loaned me so I could complete the rest of my college work but the internet was rather wonky on it. I spent money I don't really have on a shiny new laptop (a loverly dell one from the outlet store so wasn't as expensive as it should be)but I've needed a new one for a long time now. My old laptop was a random east european one, over ten years old with a nice few cracks in it from where I dropped it. It had been acting up for the past year or so. Its just a matter of seeing what can be recovered from that hard drive (all my photos sob!!)

So this new baby (it needs a name, any suggestions?) has windows vista which seems ....ok for the most part. Am sure I'll become more familiar with it. Now to figure out how to install itunes (if I have my itunes login will I be able to access all my music or is it a case of trying to recover it from laptop 1.0?)

How have all you been?

*waves* Hellooooo! I hate Vista, see if you can switch back to 'classice windows' set up, it helps a lot in the transition.

You can rip your music off your ipod/iphone--I don't think you can get it back thru the iTunes store. I did this successfully when my laptop was stolen, just search on the Mac forums and there will be instructions.

I got a new laptop too! We are shiny computer twins :)

Well maybe shiny/matt sisters. My lovely laptop is a dull black finish which is tres swanky but prone to finger prints :(

Welcome back!
Hope you are able to get your music back without re-ripping it all.
