I’ve been using iTunes for a while now. The music is good enough for me, and I don’t have to deal with the huge amount of jewel cases anymore. Price is OK, and buying music Sunday morning with all shops closed, it’s just ‘fun’.
- iTunes Germany is .. in German only. Really, I don’t have the chance to choose the language, I’m just considered to understand everything.
- I’m Belgian, so I want to buy Belgian music: no can do. (This is not really problem of Apple’s iTunes services..) This is the EU though! So I don’t see the problem. I travel to Belgium and buy music there. Why wouldn’t I be allowed to shop on the Belgian iTunes store, or the French one? Stupid.
- TV offerings on iTunes. ARE THEY NUTS? 2,49 EUR for 1 -ONE- episode!!!? It’s not even full quality, not even comparable with the DVD box (which is like half the price).
- TV offerings continued: Only dubbed in German? One of the best reasons one would buy on iTunes is to have the original version, and not the dubbed one. I have no chance on TV for that.
This is maybe an old idea, but still great to do! Thanks to Ronald‘s tip I could make the cube you see here. Just pure fun!
Check out how to do on Ned Batchelder’s site!
(Also thanks to Ronald Bradford, I can walk the earth with my good walking shoes! )
A bit of early Sunday morning rhymes at work.. picking up a support shift (not all you read is true: I do not hug cups!):
The struggle to wake up,
rubbing eyes and hugging the cup
Picking up the shift,
reading email and hoping for no drift
Reminders better be spam,
this morning I wish it remain calm
Oh little hangover
Why are you here
Oh little fever
It must have been the beer
Still dawn outside,
soon customers awake, and I can’t hide
If it all stays online,
all will be good, I’ll have a great time,
But something will have failed,
and we’ll save folks badly bunkered
Oh five hours of sleep
Why wasn’t it longer
Oh in bottles I looked deep
Eight hours, I hope not to linger

Well, we don’t have a policy on what to do with them, so I went creative. Not as creative as Harrison did (where is that picture???), but I like it. It’s hanging next to my MySQL certificates. Yes, I’m proud on these things, maybe I’m a bit vain.. But it does look good on the wall of my storage room.
(btw, this flickr to Google blogging is great!)
