Weekly Weigh In
Feb 24th, 2009 by Babs

No weight loss this week but I did sc00nch down a smidgen in the body fat: 32.4%. I’m not going to even try to figure out how much exercise I got in this week, other than I only worked out on half the days I had planned. :P I missed yesterday, too, but I plan on making that up tomorrow. It does feel good to be getting back into the routine!

In other news, my Sansa Clip is working again. Not because of the firmware upgrade, however. It turns out that the formatting of the Clip’s drive is different than what is commonly used for mp3 players. When I was having the trouble with transfers freezing (the result of the Rhapsody application becoming corrupted) I formatted my Clip using Rhapsody’s “format device” option. Rhapsody used the common formatting, which caused the Clip to have a conniption as it tried to locate the data. Per instructions from the Sansa forums I formatted my Clip using its own option. Now everything’s hunky dory! Well, except for the fact that I need to do a 600+ track transfer for the fourth time!

A belated Merry Christmas to all of you who celebrated it!

I’ve been spending the past two days loading up my new Sansa Clip. It’s got twice the space than my old Sansa, plus it officially works with Rhapsody to Go. This means I only have to renew the license, instead of reformating and reloading the damn player, each month. Woot! Sadly, it seems everyone and their mother is currently downloading from Rhapsody. I’ve had the occasional glitch where a download would grind to a halt before it was completed before, but this is crazy! In addition to regularly encountering the aforementioned issue, I’m now finding many tunes I want are “currently unavailable,” but if I go back the next day (or even an hour later) the file is available again. It’s frustrating!

For shits and grins I decided to see if Rhapsody had any tunes by Alvin and the Chipmunks (don’t you dare tell you haven’t seen that annoying commercial for their new CD, at least once!). I was disappointed to learn they did not have Ragtime Cowboy Joe, one of my childhood faves. However, and you may want to brace yourselves for this, the Chipmunks have done a cover of The Time Warp. Yes, mini Transylvanians everywhere can now demand a Chipmunk Magenta “fuck that bird!” *headdesk* Scarily, I would welcome a Chipmunk remake of RHPS. At least that would make sense.
