comment How to easily remove Win7 MBR? (I always boot TrueCrypt loader from a CD-R)
Perhaps it just needs to know where offset on the disk? When time permits I'll come back to this and post a solution here if there is one. This is just a 'nice to have' for me but surely others must really desire it for the extra protection

comment How to easily remove Win7 MBR? (I always boot TrueCrypt loader from a CD-R)
I verified that and see a lot of sites recommending it. The command ran as root from terminal on a USB Booted Ubuntu, but Windows could still boot from the hard drive so it cannot have worked. After searching and searching I decided to just zap the MBR partition and see what happens. It was a bad idea. The Trucrypt rescue disc could nothing but decrypt the drive. Decrypting took many hours and left the drive with one partition the size of the whole drive, but the data was there. Neither Windows 7 install CD or the TrueCrypt rescue disc could make it boot. I ended up re-installing Windows.

comment iTunes on OS X fails to read some ID3 tags
As a follow up to help anyone else with the same problem: Jaikoz cost $24 and did an impressive good job but has messed up some of the albums. It appeared to ignore my original ID3 tags and the same song is on multiple albums by an artist it will 'randomly' assign an album. It fairly easy to correct but will take me some time

comment iTunes on OS X fails to read some ID3 tags
This a useful comment but does not address the real issue so I'll leave it unanswered. A test run of Jaikoz went well so I guess I'll run it against all the files as I don't have time to resolve the original issue. I'll keep a backup of the MP3s just in case because I don't want to rip all those CDs again!

comment iTunes on OS X fails to read some ID3 tags
iTunes in OS X says all the tags are v2.3. I uninstalled iTunes from my Win7 machine (runs fast again!) so I do not know what it said, but it read them fine At this point I'll probably just run Jaikoz against them and keep a back of the original MP3s for a year in case it trashed anything

comment iTunes on OS X fails to read some ID3 tags
not sure but probably v1.1. VLC and Songbird reads the data fine but does not indicate the version. Do you know a tool that will indicate which version of id3 without me having to deconstruct the data? I used Notepad++ and it looks like v1 or 1.1 because the data is plain text at the end of the file

Could have been DVDs left in the drive. Also it started up when charging an iPod. I sync the iPod with a different machine but we tend to charge things off the htpc because it is always on

I just played with the settings and found it possible to zoom the task bar + finder icons. That's all I've found so far

Hulu and XMBC (plays DVDs too) work well on a TV too. FrontRow seemed a little lame to me. Last night I was using ctrl + scroll wheel to zoom in on Safari
