Week 26, and we had a problem...

Lest we forget, the whole point of this blog is to record my efforts to listen to 52 full length Librivox audiobooks in a year. This is week 26, and I am in the middle of my 26th audiobook. All seemed to be going to plan, until, today, my iPod cut out in the middle of Hugh McGuire's heartfelt reading of section 10 of Ulysses, and gave me a sad face. And refused to reboot. I was torn between annoyance, and delight that I would have a perfect excuse to buy a new one.
I tried everything Apple suggested, but noticed that the hard disk was not spinning. Seemed bad. So I googled it. Led me here. Basically told me to whack it.
Worked like a charm.
I wonder if there is a name for the emotion: 'Yay! it works!' blending seamlessly with 'Aw! No new iPod!'

Ahh, but "This is only a TEMPORARY solution to fixing an iPod, and the problem may come back (experiences vary)."

You might get lucky ;-)

Yes - next time I'll use a hammer just to be sure...
