I have made the Mr. Saturn theme from Earthbound my ringtone. But I am deeply disappointed to discover that the new phone has no place to hook my little dangly-charm of Killua from Hunter x Hunter that I got from a vending machine.

I am so much cooler than you.

(Why would Nokia split my cell phone’s manual into 25 separate PDFs and make me download them each individually?)

Blah Apple

Having discovered that the cell phone works fine as an MP3 player, I started up my perennial Get The iTunes DRM Off My New Pornographers Albums Project again. I tried three pieces of DRM-cracking software, none of which worked. It is a triumph for Apple’s software engineers!

Except that I just torrented everything instead.

I just realized that iTunes* went crazy at some point in the past year, and I have two or three copies of about half of my music collection - all in the same folder as the originals, but with different filenames and metadata. The apparently random nature of which files were copied and how many copies I ended up with makes it less than convenient for me to go through and clean the folder up manually.

Is there a program that can search through and identify the duplicate files, even accounting for the differing metadata, and allow me to bulk-delete them? I’ve tried MediaMonkey and Duplicate Music Files Finder, and they both seem to choke on the different-metadata problem.

* I assume this to be iTunes’ fault because it is the only media player/organizer that I have ever used on this computer.
