Ballmer fell, cut head, during Nokia buyout negotiations. Maybe someone just threw a chair at him?

HA!
Or he threw it at himself!

Then I found out that WinAmp has a plugin that can sync to iPods. I still use WinAmp to play music, so I tried it and it worked.

Huh! I didn't know that...and I still use winamp, too. Is that included in the free versions, or one you have to buy (which, since I've used it forever, I guess I shouldn't be averse to)? Can you do custom playlists as well?

Might have to check that out - thank you!

IIRC, Winamp doesn't work with sixth generation of iPod Nanos.

I've never been a huge fan of itunes...I tried media monkey recently, and found that when I synced, it would basically hang on the last step, to the point where I'd have to unplug the phone and hope it worked...

My niece got an iPod shuffle for Xmas a couple of years ago. She brought it to me and a stack of CDs for me to put music on it. I currently have a couple of Sandisk players and just use WMP to sync to them, so I plugged in her iPod and just assumed I could use WMP to sync to it. Fuck apple and their BS only supported syncing to it from iTunes. I refused to put iTunes on my system and have it take over my music collection, so I had to look for an alternative. I already use a couple of Linux distros in Virtual Box, and was about to see if I could do it in Linux. Then I found out that WinAmp has a plugin that can sync to iPods. I still use WinAmp to play music, so I tried it and it worked. The only problem is that the shuffle doesn't have a display, instead it has a button to push and it's supposed to speak the song title and artist. That doesn't work, which I assume because it's something iTunes can only do.
I hate iTunes and QuickTime as well. Do what I use. Use another machine OR VM. Mount a network share's read only to that music location for iTunes. Be done. I also use my free iPod Nano as an USB flash drive too.

Maybe when it's free I'll bite. I don't see why I should pay a 2nd time for a book I already own and bought on Amazon, no matter how much it is discounted
And it requires Kindle.

So, how about Gareth Bale, eh? £86M. That's over $133,000,000 USD.

...

If this was in NFL, you guys would be all over it. Do you even know what a transfer fee is?

We only watch interesting sports here.
Esports?

Watch the miniseries, then the other seasons. The show is good. Sometimes even VERY good.

Fixed it for you. No need to thank me. Best sci-fi series of this millennium, although some episodes are a bit lame.
Ditto. Also, nice signature quote. For me, it was just one: Atari 2600. Does portable Mini arcade, Froger count as a console?

It's pretty old, but still funny.

Care to explain it? I get that they're in Starbucks (although those cigars better not be lit if they're around here) but who are they? Is their name Starbucks? Is one called Star and the other Bucks? Did anyone get my first post "joke"? What's the insignia, Battlestar Gallactica?
Yep, Battlestar Galactica (original/old and 2003 series) actors. You should watch the 2003 one.
