Windows Media Player

Not that anyone cares … (saying this because … I dunno, it’s really inane? O_o)

I don’t like doing dishes. :b *goes to do dishes*

*back* I should go to bed now. Yeah. Almost 10. Oh well.

Anyway. What I wanted to say (that seemed inane) is that a few days after I installed the Windows XP SP Pack 2 I remembered why I didn’t want to install it. :b M88’s computer has Windows Media Player 9. The study comp has WMP 9. Mum and Daddy’s has WMP 9. I used to have WMP XP on my laptop. I Do Not Like version 9. For two main reasons:

1) It doesn’t count the number of times a song has been played … I know it was very pointless … but … I can’t help it, I have this … weird … condition … where everything has to be even. So I got addicted to making all my songs played the same number. >_> It was the main reason I stayed away from WinAmp so long. *so sad* And I didn’t want to just drop that! Kind of like Monk … He was pouring decaf and caffeinated coffee back and forth to “make them even.” XDDD I understood that part of the show completely … rather sad … also the part where he kept walking funny so he wouldn’t step on the spaces between the pavers. ^^;; It took me a long time to drop that habit. But anyway. Reason 2:

2) The columns on the lists keep readjusting so that the whole title/artist is displayed. o_< It gets really annoying when I’m scrolling through the list quickly! And I used to have the columns spaced in very exact widths, so I could read all titles but two, all artists, about half the album titles, times, and genres. And Microsoft (or whoever) had to go and idiot-proof it. Arrrrggghh. Stupid thing. *kicks*

The first thing I got over after a while. ^^;;; Just today I started re-organizing my Favorites playlist, ’cause I didn’t feel like listening to my rock playlist on WinAmp. (Yeah, all my playlists got jumbled up. O_o?) But the second thing I haven’t gotten over yet, in all the time that I’ve ever used WMP 9. *sigh* Ah well.

Last annoying thing, that didn’t have to do specifically with version 9 … I can’t move single files around. I thought I’d figured out how to do it tonight (hold down the mouse button for a second on the one file) but after a while it stopped working and I’d be highlighting all these songs … ugh. So my Favorites playlist is still more than half messed up. Hm. I think I have to update my music list … *adds that to her long to-do list for her site*

Um. Other random things. I want internet access on my cellphone. >_> I just want to be able to sign on aim on it. ^^;; I get bored between classes … especially lately since I don’t go to bed early enough and I’m tired/sleepy and I can’t keep my mind on my work or on a random book I’m reading in the library. I haven’t ready The Pain Nobody Wants in the looongest time. Dang chemistry and its intrusive ways. Oh yeah. Lab tomorrow. One where we mix scary chemicals and see reactions. Horrible. Oh yeah. o_o Gotta print those graphs. *thanks the Lord for remembering* … *thanks her spirit guide for poking her* … yeah.

I still haven’t given a name to my spirit guide. ^^;; I think the only real reason is because I don’t know if this person is male or female, and I don’t want to … erm. Call a guy Marcy or call a girl … I dunno. :b But anyway. I want aim! M88 can sign on aim with his phone. He can’t send or receive messages, but he can sign on. And we’re not supposed to have internet access on these phones … The funny thing is, he’ll sign on, then sign off, but he’ll still show as online until he gets on a computer and signs off. Yes, we tested this thoroughly. XP And Sam apparently has mobile access as well … *jealous* I should get his number, then we could text each other. hehe.

Boingy boingy boingy boingy boingy boingy … says W88.

I dun wanna go to classes. Mainly because I’m always tired and yawning and I can’t really keep my mind on everything. o_o Counterproductive, my staying up, no? Oh well. At least my professors postponed the quizzes until next week. XD

    Maybe you could use a gender-neutral name? :/ ::shrug::

    Actually, it was only $5 a month … when we had one phone, anyway. But Mum says she doesn’t want to deal with AT&T because they’re ebil.

    Wasn’t there something like a device devoted solely to aim? And it had a keyboard pad too? I’d take that. :b

    Hehe, I thought of that, but I don’t like many gender-neutral names. ^^;; I mean, I’ll like it for one gender, but not the other.

    Oy. I would just probably pick a word I like from another language and use that (mainly from Japanese, since a lot of Japanese are rather gender-neutral sounding to me ^_^;;). Heh.
