Thanks for offering to help, but I actually managed to fix it myself!

I figured out the last error by going deep into the scary spaces of the iTunes program files. The MPlugin the error was referring to was 0 bytes. Therefore, it wasn't anything. I found another MPlugin with someodd bytes on it in the iTunes folder, and switched them out. It worked!

For the other error, I searched for "unknown error 4450" on the iTunes discussion forums. It turns out that lots of people had the same problem. I read what people suggested, and if the suggestion worked or not. Many were suggesting to change the write speed to 8X or lower. I changed the write speed to 6X, and now I'll be listening to GH on the way home!!!!! :cackle:

Sorry :blush: I just feel overly proud of myself.

I've been to ...

A St.Monica's day picnic. May the 4th be with you.

So, there I was, at this picnic, dressed in a surcoat with a lute on it. Like you do. And I've been growing my beard a bit recently. then somebody puts a circlet on me.

So, tell me the truth. Do I look like a Morris dancer in this?

No, but it does make me think of that episode of the original Star Trek where the Enterprise encounters the Greek god Apollo. :lol:

I've been to...the Georgia Renaissance Festival. A few people I know participate in the entertainment there.

Tonight I went to that local Chattanooga Web site forum for independent artists.
A site where I often plug the studios web & graphic design services.
A site where I often feel the need to drown myself in bleach to get the stench of that site off of me when I leave.

I found one "rival" (?, HA!) designer annoyed with me for not posting all my design clients
stating "you're only as good as your last client"

I took great delight in pointing out to them that my

[most recent design client]
is playing Carnegie Hall and has taught music theory at Penn State.
How do you get to Carnegie Hall? :D

While there most recent client has played "prestigious" venues such as the Local and Fathom in Chattanooga.

Place grumpy care bear image here and find me a snob care bear in that test on that site. :D

However, I did manage to sneak a plug for Glass Hammer into the rebutal too since they are featured in something I designed, as well.

When you comin' home now, son, this world is not for you

Well, I've been to Nice and the Isle of Greece, but...

OK, it's rather a gender mismatch but I can't pass up the opportunity to post a terrible terrible song.

You know, I could be uncouth and point out that we've done that one earlier but, looking at those lyrics I'm happy to have it again just because it's so ferkin' awful :lol:

Isle of Greece? Is that in, like, Greekland? :roll:

Nope, though I was taught well as a kid. People who don't wash after they do their business should be publicly flogged! :x

This rang a bell in my head somewhere, but for a week or so there wasn't anyone home to answer it. Eventually I latched onto what was tickling the memory. From Lewis Grizzard's "Shoot Low, Boys--They're Ridin' Shetland Ponies"...

I was standing at a urinal beside two fellows at a Georgia-Auburn football game once. The Georgia fan, dressed in red and black from head to toe, finished his business, zipped his pants and headed for the door.
"Hey, Bulldog," shouted the Auburn fan, "don't they teach you guys at Georgia to wash after using the bathroom?"
"No," said the Bulldog fan, "they teach us not to piss on our hands."

Zing.

RIP, Lewis.
