You know, I don't think I've been on here enough to be considered much of a member; sorry about that.
Anyways, I got my frist Real paycheck today!! (I'm only 17, btw) I am getting the 60Gb iPod ASAP --everything is ordered and such. The only problem is that all of the computers I own or have general access to are WAY too (poopy) to run iTunes, which sucks. I have Musicmatch, but when it rips .mp3's, it is almost disgustingly bassy. DBPowerAMP is just the oposite; almost no bass at all, and there is an annoying squeal that goes with the songs, as if I were streaming them. If I have to, I will simply hack away at computers and software (not that I'm some great hax0r or anything) until I can either fake iTunes out or just make it not care, but I would really like some other, non-malicious form of getting decent .mp3s working. Oh; I have, on my home computer, Rioport's Audio Manager, but as far as I can tell, they don't exist anymore, and I can't download it anymore and the version I have is screwed up or something. It was good while it lasted...
Sorry; getting off topic. I do that a lot --kinda like Patrick McMantis, though I don't think that's how he spells his last name. I could be wrong. It's kinda surprising how often I think that i am wrong, but I'm not...crap. I'm doing it again.
Okay. .mp3's. Uhh... I want some decent thing to rip them so I can put them on my iPod. Perhaps an older version of iTunes would be nice if I could find a mirror or something (my processor is only 400 MHz on this here laptop, which is the fastest I have), but whatever the case I am most likely going to put Linux on it when they finish that project ( http://www.ipodlinux.org/
for those not in the know; it's cool ). Yeah... I think I'm yapping again, so I'm just going to pray that you all got what I'm asking for ( a decent ripper for .mp3's or apple formats) and shut up now, awaiting a reply. Thanks a bundle!
