I need to get a charger for it, one I can plug into my computer. Would future shop be a good place to look, or go to the apple store nearest me?

Next, once I get it plugged into my machine, to load music on it do I need to use itunes, or can I copy files from my machine straight to it? The settings on the machine are for windows, I checked before the battery died.

When it comes to apple products and ipods I am out of the loop so to speak.
Wow lucky you. The person who lost it will have learned a hard lesson on how to secure there stuff.

You will need to D/L i tunes its free, get a cable to transfer, it dose charge through the cable as well but dose not pack as big of a punch as a wall charger. Cable is available at the places you mentioned.
Transfer your music from your confuser to i tunes then sync good to go (what’s on there now will be removed) done. Repeat.
Cheers

Mitch the bike looks great i like that chain it's a 1/8 right? On a 3/32 ring? How’s that working out?
I was thinking about putting on one of the colored KMC BMX chains. My ring & cog are 3/32
Cheers

Cool, thanks. I'll PM you about that.

Found it in a bus shelter last week on Pape. Stopped in to light a smoke around midnight on my home and there it was. Posted a few signs but no replies. All kinds of music on it. No name, no contacts listed, no engraved email on the back, nothing. SOL to whoever lost it. I want to keep some of the tunes, but most I want to ditch.

So if I download Itunes and plug it in transfering songs is no problem, same as any mp3? And can I delete music then? If only they had left the operating manual as well, how rude not to.

The hard copy manual is not very in depth. You can find out what you need to know on Apples site. To charge it you must have a USB 2.0 connection. Putting all yer music in I-tunes is a time consuming bee-atch (it took me nearly a month to get it all sorted) but once there it is really easy. If you want to move music from the I-pod to yer computers hard-drive you will need a program called sharepod (thanks Shammy!) I also think you don't want to synch it up for some reason...Sham can fill you in on that one. If you are coming for safety tonite we can sort you out here. LOL...8 weeks ago I knew nothing. Heading out to get a Nano for the G.F. for her B-day...anyone know the cheapest place downtown?

my wife got a new computer and went to load her itunes library with what was on her ipod and it wiped her ipod clean. she had to start fresh. She got a warning saying that she was using a different library and she would lose everything if she continued. fortunately, that is what she wanted. others may know otherwise but that's her experience. she doesn't read the manuals, just usually wings it and is usually right (so she thinks). i'm sure apple has the user guides on line.

i like being crafty, just a matter of getting everything together. there's a pretty good description on the icebike website.

as for me; the back is the same, the drugs are the same (well, running low atm) and the knee has eased up a bit. if all goes well by monday i might have two new jobs...

happy friday everyone!

how late do these meetings go? i'll try to drop by after work (8-ish) with some condiments.
keith: i'll bring the wheels for you to look at if i show up. about your ipod: worst-buy has factory refurbished units for considerably less money $180 vs. $220 for a new 4gb. that being said, i bought one and plugged it in at home to find out it didn't work. returned it the next day, walked 5 minutes to the apple store and got a new one at full price.#$(*&@* couldn't be bothered with shopping around. ipod prices are pretty much fixed wherever you go. canada computers (college/bathurst) might have it for a bit less but their selection is not so good.

Operator: It is a 3ttt stem with Pinarello stamped on it, it came into Cycle Solutions on an old Pinarrello that was being stripped to sell the frame so I snatched the stem up.

Sweep: Nope 1/8 chain on 1/8 chainring, but when I was running the Elvish fixed it had a 1/8 chain on a 3/32 chainring and it worked perfectly fine, wasn't louder than usual or anything.

Jeremy: My brother is upgrading his wheelset to some Mavic Elipses, so he let me have his old ones.

2wheelsgood: Thanks! It took me like two hours to wrap them the first time I did it, I'm getting faster at it though.

A 1/8 chain on a 3/32 chainring should work fine. A 3/32 cog on the other hand will not work.

Looks great though.

How do you find it? I think it's kind of loud.

It's no louder than any other chain I've had, I actually think its a bit lighter than the KMC chain that I was running before, which surprised me.
