iTunes 7 on Windows--Just Don't

I downloaded the new version 7 of iTunes on Friday, and tried it out yesterday evening. Don't download this software if you're using windows. It cannot accept any additional "real" load on your CPU when playing music. I like to listen to iTunes while playing Master of Orion 2, and 6.0.5 worked fine. 7 just starts crackling and skipping and dropping sections of music and just plain sucks. The downgrade to go back is also very painful. I'd wait on a couple of revisions before I'd touch that POS again.

Update! It looks like downgrading doesn't help either. Now iTunes 6.0.5 just crashes on startup with a GPF after I rebooted my machine. I'm not pleased with this revision of iTunes at all.

NFL Week #2

Here's to hoping for better things this weekend! Falcons, Bears, Bengals, Saints, Colts, Dolphins, Panthers, Eagles, Ravens, Rams, Seahawks, Broncos, Patriots, Chargers, Cowboys, Steelers.

The Master comments: This week's difference: Jaguars. Brave choice in my mind :-)

Stick a Fork in Wikipedia?

On of Wikipedia's founders has decided to fork the project and rename it Citizendium. There will be no anonymous editing and experts will rule the project. It will be interesting to see if it gets as popular as Wikipedia while being more accurate. It will also be interesting to see how big of a hissy fit the rest of the Wikipedia community has. Thanks Slashdot.
