With this problem, do you see the AirPort menu item grey out as the connection is lost and recovered?

Spin Control! Why didn't I think of that... Great suggestion Everett: I'll give it a shot.

Also, when I do clean installs, I never restore podcasts or iTunes U media from backups: I re-download them anew.

comment iTunes causes the entire system to crash when downloading some media OS X
Hi Randolph, as I said, I've had this problem for many versions of iTunes and OS X. I've always done clean installs, so essentially, yes to your first question. As for re-creating my library, I have done so from Time Machine backups, but I can't feasibly re-create it from scratch. Disk surface is fine.

comment Hungry Time Machine
Wrong! The only two things I listed that are excluded by default is Safari's cache and system logs, the latter of which is of trivial size on a home computer. Furthermore, almost everything else I listed aside from system logs would be included in the backup, like Firefox's caches, which are not stored in (~)/Library/Caches but in ~/Library/Application Support. Admittedly, that is a pretty cool, so +1 for teaching me something, snark notwithstanding ;)

comment Isolating external hard drive failure?
Thanks alexandru, I totally forgot about DW. I'll give that a shot. And no, I didn't disconnect the drive without unmounting it. I do use the drive a lot though, so it's certainly not inconceivable that I've burnt something out…

Nope, silent save the fan. Should have said that to begin with.

There is no fix for exactly the reason you specify.

Just a comment: "howto" as one word usually means "this is a guide" not "how do I".

comment How to change the default location for the standard File Save dialog in Mac OS X?
Most apps remember the folder that either: 1. Was last accessed by the system's file dialog; or 2. Was last accessed by that application.

comment Cannot delete podcast from iPod Touch
I'm not clear on something: how are you attempting to play it if you can't see it anywhere on the iPod or in iTunes? Where are you playing it from?
