Apple’s Makin Me Angry, Help Comes to the Rescue!

Ok, so I’ve been a little frustrated with the new iTunes. I’ve actually reverted back to the previous version. It took some hunting to actually find the old installer. I decided to help others out who also wanted to go back to 4.9 and I posted the instructions that worked for me along with a link to the file I’ve got hosted on my website. Well the powers that be overseeing the Apple discussions sent me a notification that my post had been removed. Then I reposted and it was quitely removed without any notification. What irritates me is that there was no clear reason why it was removed. Well I posted a third time and didn’t include the link to my download site. Not that I’m certain this was why my post was removed. Well I had a good number of people requesting the download link. And I ended up getting on Skype and helped some Canadian woman get her iTunes 4.9 back and running. She’s an artist and sent me a copy of one of her works as a thank you. I was happy to help. I hope that Apple gets this iTunes issue fixed within the next week. As others have pointed out, this is going to go down as one of the huge software blunders for Apple. I sure hope they learn from this mistake. This is the first problem I’ve had with a piece of Apple software. How disappointing.

Well, to recap last night. I had a fun time at Kari’s. It was fun to see some people I haven’t seen in awhile and to meet some new people. Kari’s working to make some salsa but is trying to decide what recipe to use. She had three different kinds out. They were all good. My favorite was probably the one that had all the chunks in it. Personally I like hotter salsa, but it’s her salsa, and not everyone likes the level of hot that I do. We played some Catch Phrase, Mad Gab, and another game that no one really new the actual name for. Basically everyone writes 5 words down in a list. You generally do 3 lists each, but we only did 2 each. Then you put all the lists in a bowl and everyone picks a partner across from them in the circle. The object is to get your partner to guess the 5 words and then recite them back without prompting within 45 seconds. It was pretty fun. I was partners with Maredith and we didn’t do so well. I really don’t know anything about her. She came in as we were playing games so I didn’t really talk to her. I ended up leaving around 10:30-11:00 I think.

Well, I’m a bumb, other than helping that Canadian with a computer problem, I didn’t do anything today. Saturdays get to be my lazy day. I know there are a lot of things I could be doing, oh well. I’ve been in a real anti-social mode for awhile. I guess I can’t be accused of not talking with anyone when you see what I get into on this blog. Well church tomorrow, I’m going to be sure to make it to the fellowship & gathering time before second service. I hope there might be a group for my age that I can go to this year. Well that’s all for now, chow!

  1. Alex, there have been a lot of problems with iTunes 5. I’ve had probably like 20 requests for the 4.9 installer as Apple has removed it from their site. Check out the Apple Discussions. These problems may be more with the Mac version. It may also be with people that subscribe to Podcasts more so too.
