hurray! iTunes 5 lost my podcast subscriptions…gnaarrr!!!


“Cool a new iTunes version!” I thought and downloaded it…but after the system restart and the first start-up of the new iTunes this came up:




“this iTunes library is damaged….”

And guess what: all my podcast subscriptions are gone. Damn! What the hell do you think you’re doing Apple?!

The “Update-Mania” on the Macs I am using is quite impressive: After a fresh Panther Installation you are forced to download more than 400 Megabyte of Updates…and at the moment around 200 Megabyte of Updates for a fresh installed Tiger…

Who is complaining about the 180 Megabytes of Windows XP!?!

    Please consider that the updates you download for X.4 or X.3 not only include system components, but also additional software like PHP, Apache, maybe OpenLDAP. I think you should be rather happy with having your system keeping track of the versions of the less-important components so you don’t have to update them yourself. And now please, update PHP to 4.4.0 with Windows Update 😉

    No trolling, just clarification 🙂

    actually I don’t care what they are updating: I am not using Apache: So why are they updating it? Iam not using PHP so why are they updating it? The point is: nevertheless iam using the stuff they are updating it. And the point is that I was not talking about what Apple is updating anyway. I am talking about the size of the updates and the many reboots I had to do over the months… – 200-400 Megabyte updates is quite much…
