Apple sucks, they said that an engineer (read: real person) was going to get back to me with in 72 hours, that was 4 days ago. I have around 750 purchased tracks from iTunes — if I cant play them any more because their software is broken — I expect my money refunded. IN FULL.
Configured a new Debian server at work this evening — its running on a whopping Dell G1. 6.4GB HD, 128MB RAM & 400mhz proc. Damn this thing is FAST!
