Technology sucks

Apparently, the good folks at Apple have coded up a way to simulate CD scratches into iTunes 7. Songs which were intact before -- as well as those purchased on iTunes -- are now skipping. <sigh> Or maybe it's a ploy to push me over to Zune.

I'm guessing the Victrola emulator had to be deferred to version 8.

Also, I'm on-call again this weekend. We've reduced the number of folks available for on-call by half, which means the rest of us are now on-call twice as often. Oh, and now we can't do anything -- including rebooting a dead host -- without filling out a bunch of paperwork and getting it approved by a manager. Only 304 days, 2 hours, 23 minutes, 51.25 seconds until I can go to another job...
