So now my mp3 player and this journal colour scheme match up. - Vox Audita Perrit, Literra Scripta Manet....

So now my mp3 player and this journal colour scheme match up.
I caved in and got my new iPod this week. It is the 8GB red nano model I linked a few posts back, and I've christened it Cicero (after Arpinum's favourite son and Grumpy Old Man of the Republic, naturally). It even has a neat little phrase in Latin that I had engraved on the back when I ordered it: 'Musica delenit bestiam feram'. Bonus points if you can translate that. The rest of you can google it and easily find an answer.

And as with the last iPod, I spent a good two to three hours putting all my music on it. That was after I had to figure out why it wouldn't update with the new software in iTunes. Annoying? Yes. But still! I am very happy with Cicero and the shininess of the new model, so here's to hoping it'll last longer than the three years I had the mini.

I can tranlate it! It sounds terrific Steph. In other news Steven and I saw Anjuli today -- she looks absolutely amazing.

The AGM also passed off without any hitches. The executive voted in, the museum night is being planned...

Good to hear, I regret not being able to attend. I need to get in touch with Anjuli too. :/

Are you (or anyone else for that matter) going to be on campus next Monday? I know it's the first day of the break, but I'm going in since I'm flying to Melbourne the next day and won't be back until Sunday.

I'm afraid I won't be, and I know Mark has gone on holiday. I'm not sure about anyone else: I'm sorry.

How is everything else going for you? Excited for Saturday's final?

It's ok. :) I need to get in touch with Suze at some point. Dad's wanting a copy of her 'Wagner's Rinse Cycle' CD, and I promised I'd get that out of the way for him.

Not terribly. ;p With St. Kilda not in contention I have the advantage of not being on the edge of my seat for whoever's going to be playing. If Geelong beat Collingwood tomorrow night, I'm supporting them though (owing mostly to the entirely superficial fact that I'm a cat lover).

Educated guess, based on two pretty good-looking cognates and a stab at "feram":

Music hath charms to soothe the savage beast?

Something like that, yes. 'Music soothes the savage beast' is the English translation. :)

Silly me. I went all Shakespeare by accident. Just a tad anachronistic.

I've had my Ipod for years.

Steph,

Going on 3 years now, I've had my 30 GB video Ipod which I'm discovering is near impossible for me to fill. Even with 11 days of audiobooks, all of my favorite arcade games and 14 days of music across 38 genres of music!

That leave me with about 11.4 GB to fill at last count. But I like it non-the-less. :)

Adios!

Chris.

Red iPods are so sexy, aren't they? If I knew they were going to make a red shuffle as well I would have waited.
