the dreaded 'sad ipod'

my iPod is broken. last night i sat here staring at my iTunes window as each song slowly, S L O W L Y loaded, and my poor purple iPod whirred and clicked way more than normal.

NOT OK.

this would be my FOURTH ipod. battery problems, hard drive problems, and the dreaded 'sad ipod'. and of course now i am out of warranty, so there will be no new, crappy refurbed ipod. I don't think one of them lasted more than six months.

i paid $400 for this thing!! I take good care of it, i don't drop it... it should last AT LEAST 2 years. and now i am hoping i can get it to load my library and that will be it. becasue it plays music just fine, but it wouldn't load. Then stupid me had to reformat so it might load my few new cd's.

anyway, as it was loading last night, and going fine, my computer randomly rebooted. also NOT OK, but that is a whole different story. Anyway, in the hopes of getting most of my music on the ipod, i've decided to clean house. I started out with almost 11,000 songs (and there are a few that need to be loaded into itunes). That is just too much music!! so i am cleaning house, deleting songs. it's liberating, deleting stuff i've gotten from friends that i jsut don't like! but it's hard - there are a lot of songs on here that are good, but will i really listen to them? can i bring myself to delete them? i'm not sure.

i figure i can back up some stuff i'm not sure about, and 'uncheck' some that i don't want on my ipod, but i'd like to get my library down to a manageable level. whatever that means. ;-)
