So, last night I did in fact discover I could download my corrupted songs again for free. Nice Apple. And I still got my two free credits, so I did that, and then plugged in my iPod to sync. BUZZ. No such luck. I've been getting an error message, which I Googled, and found that many people with the Classic 160-Gig iPod have the same error, and when it's out of warranty (i.e., over a year old), then the easiest way to fix it is to have the computer "scan and fix" it. Alas, I didn't discover I was having the problem AGAIN (it's happened before) until iTunes had wiped everything off my iPod. SO. I had to try again, but the scan itself takes over an hour, and then it has to sync my nearly 12,000 songs (plus a few videos and podcasts) and photos. This it has been doing now for another hour, and it's on song 7,500.

So I had to dig my little shuffle out of my gym bag so I would have tunes at work today.

Then I came home and Tivo wasn't talking to the network, so I had to reset THAT, too.

And alas, these are simply things I cannot live without...

I have to work tomorrow, but I'm only going in for the minimum 4 hours -- that way I get some overtime and still have my Saturday. But I am tired, very tired; I couldn't get out of bed this morning, and now I seem to have a headache.

I want my brain to start working.

I need some names for my Geek story. I know my main characters, but they have their game characters and then there's the villain of the piece...

There are a number of babyname websites. And genealogical websites might also be useful.

Oh, I've got baby name books all over the place. I need fantasy names for the characters in the game (Tom is a Warrior, Matt plays a Wizard, Cody is a Bard, etc.).

Then I suggest looking up Medieval European names.

oh god. well I hope the thing gets fixed at the end of all this.

hmmm tell me more about the geek story. I'm not that good at naming anything but i do know when I see a crap name (saw one today on goodreads, thinking I just know if i read this book all I'd think about is the name Kizzy for my heroine...)

It finished all right, but I'm having some trouble with the photos. Should probably just take that option off (and there's something weird about the "other" stuff filling up space -- usually it's only 3 or 4 gig of the junk Apple puts on them, the clock, calendar, etc.; now it's 45 gig of "other").

Let's see -- They're playing a "World of Warcraft" type game, so I'll need a name of the game (to prevent being sued), a name for the lands it's set in, a name for Tom's Warrior character, a name for Matt's Wizard character (I'm thinking Ryodan for that one), and a name for Cody's bard (possible Alonzo -- she's the non-geek of the group, and only played once to see what Matt was all excited about); my villain is likely named Greg in the real world and Falcon in the game, but I'm not married to either.

Kizzy? All I'd think about is Roots.

well at least you got the music? No clue about the other stuff. My mp3 player was something I won at the casino...

hmm yes definitely will need to find another name Lands of....something or other.

i'll think about the names. Wasn't Ryodan the name in Hickman and Wiess's dragonlance series/ or was that Riordan... Hmmm been too many decades

judging by the cover art no where near that ethnic group

I got the music. That is what concerns me!

I started plugging -- Elesstar is what I'm using now, unless something else jumps to mind, in case that sounds too much like someone else's world.

I've used the name Riordan numerous times over the years; I initially thought I created it, but I've run across it in several places. Bear in mind these are guys playing an online game, their character names may not be completely original!

Odd. That's the one and only place I've EVER heard the name Kizzy (played by Leslie Uggams).
Jan. 14th, 2012 03:24 am (UTC)
i'm sure

that works

yeah Riordan is Irish and true they surely do not have to be original names

I didn't even remember it from Roots then outside of Levar Burton I don't remember much period about that. I haven't rewatched it in eons
Jan. 14th, 2012 03:30 am (UTC)
I always remember pointless stuff like that. I haven't seen Roots in years (seriously, maybe since high school), and I still remember big chunks of it really clearly, including dialogue. And I read it, too.

I remember geeky stuff like that. Other things not so much
Jan. 14th, 2012 01:15 pm (UTC)
[hugs for overtime and headaches]

Hugs! Have a great weekend!
