I’m a douchebag

I dropped my Archos this morning and about halfway through my walk to work this morning it stopped playing… I took out my earphones and hear the ever-so-familiar “marbles-on-sheet-metal” sound of a failing hard disk…

So perhaps I will pick up an iPod today… I hate unplanned purchases, but I also have grown very accustomed to having lots of music available for my 30 minute walk to and from work each day…

      See, that’s the trouble: It APPEARS that it is solely a hard disk fault, but it was a pretty high drop and I would hate to lay out money on a replacement disk to find out that there are problems elsewhere.

      I tried to buy an iPod at the apple store on lunch break but they only had the 5GB ones and I was looking for a 10, so that mission failed.. Perhaps I will buy a replacement disk for the Archos, I don’t know…

            well, it’d be a pain in the butt to yank it (and subsequently re-format) but it might be worth it to see if the archos is still usable…

            or just use this opportunity to buy an iPod as you originally planned. ;)

        1. heh, but I didn’t end up getting one… As I said, I think I am going to wait until I am sure I have a job past december before I lay out that kind of cash… Things are looking promising at work, but until I hear a firm “yes” or “no” I am keeping my money in the bank. :)
