The bad news: Alanis Morrisette has broken up with her fiance.
The good news: She might, once again, produce a good angsty album like Jagged Little Pill.

Now is when being an open source geek bites me in the ass...

Before I accidently erase all the tracks on on my iPod, hopefully one of you can help.

At home, I run linux and use gtkpod. It will let me look at the ipods current track listings and then add tracks as I see fit without overwriting everything.

I cursory look at iTunes makes me think it that if I try to add a song from work it might overwrite/erase all the songs on the iPod.

Is iTunes really this stupid, or can I add tracks/videos safely?

A glossary of blogging terms:

Am I the only one to hate the term "blog"? It just doesn't sound right. I think of a mix of a "log" and "blob". So I get this mental image of a dead tree covered in slime when I hear the word "blog".

I think we need to come up with a replacement term. One that sounds fitting for peoples logorheaic tendencies in the virtual space.

Personally, I'm leaning toward the term "espew". Like email, but pwoplw spewing forth random brain farts online. I've often thought of online journalling pages and forums as blank walls which people tag with varying qualities of virtual grafitti, from the loser tags like, "U SUXOR!!1!!1!" to murals of epic scope and beauty. Maybe a term that reflects that quality.

Either way, "blog" sucks.

Let's hear your ideas.
