Time Line 2011/12
Technical News and Views from a hole in the ground: 2011 and 2012
February 7th '11:
Repeated from 2011 is
some stuff about enabling a
Sony USB turntable under Windows 7 Ultimate.
March 3rd '11: iPod and Win 7 SP1. What a mess that has
proved to be, when the SP1 was added to Gallowglass as an update, to the XW8200 HP workstation.
Hanging, fatal errors, both on this particular computer and also on Oxford
(where 'working last' was invoked to return it to Win 7 Ult without the
SP1). I had to install iTunes, QuickTime, Office 2010, etc., all over
again. The iTunes software would not let me import all of the music. Still
not cured, and it's to do with licencing. That does not matter with me,
since every CD/LP that I had previously imported were my own purchases.
That iTunes downloaded my purchases is fine, but not to allow me to
import, from the iPod, the tracks from LPs and CDs is pathetically poor.
