On a somewhat brighter note though, I managed to fix my iPod and saved all the music! A couple of weeks ago I started up my iPod and it would tell me there was 'No Music' etc, it didn't recognize any of the files... When I plugged it into the computer it did the same, and it told me to reset the ipod to factory settings, meaning everything would be erased. Seeing as most of the music on my iPod is not on my computer (lost most of it when changing computers and when my previous laptop crashed) I wasn't prepared to just throw everything away. For anyone running into this problem (or simply wants to transfer things from their iPod to their computer), there is quite an easy solution:
You download the program Hide & Seek, which will show hidden files on your computer. After you make invisible files visible, you open 'your iPod' and you will see there's a folder iPod_control, with a subfolder called Music. In there are all your mp3s, but with weird titles like ' AHEW' or 'HWSK' etc... However, they still have their original tags when you open them in iTunes. So I transferred everything from there to my harddrive, reset the iPod, copied everything back and I'm back in business.
I don't know if everyone in the world knew this already, but it was new to me so I thought I'd share it.
Also, I keep forcing myself to be creative instead of eating crisps in bed and watching Oprah all day (though I'd like to find a healthy balance between these two). Results:
