18 months is based on an estimated 500 charges, it's only the hardcore who charge their ipods nightly and commute 3+ hours a day, listening to it while they travel and whatnot that will hit that figure, the rest of us mere mortals might see double that in practiceTom said:Really, 18 months for a battery is pretty damn good. You guys don't have to pay 4 * £350 for batteries that will last about 4 years. Think yourselves lucky!
If you're lucky enough to have a Mac on yer desktop then just hook the iPod into a free firewire socket and play the music off it via iTunes... actually thinking about it you don't even need a mac for that now as the 'doze version does it too. Zero power draw on the iPod, and tunes all day - leaving enough battery for the trundle homeClown said:But that was what I was planning on using it for... listen to music as I commute to work and maybe while I'm there too
How weird is weird? hehe. The new vB3 adopts XHTML 1.0 Transitional standards, which is a very positive move. However, Firebird (and all modern Mozilla browsers) use a stricter method of rendering standards compliant pages, which means that below-par CSS and/or XHTML markup can create odd results. The old vB2 boards didn't try to adopt standards in any major way, and so a looser, more fault-tolerant rendering system (known as 'quirks' mode) is applied to such pages. Moving from one system to the other can take a bit of work to refine the code.Xavier said:Is it just me, or does Firebird do something REALLY odd with the quote box in the above post?
But still gonna be draining the battery on the train. I would expect to be able to use these batteries for more than a year before shelling out big money for BATTERIES. Booooooooo!Xavier said:If you're lucky enough to have a Mac on yer desktop then just hook the iPod into a free firewire socket and play the music off it via iTunes... actually thinking about it you don't even need a mac for that now as the 'doze version does it too.

Just make sure that you're actually allowed to listen to music at work first and if you don't have a firewire port in your desktop machine then either get the USB2 lead for the new iPods or stick a PCI firewire card in your system, total cost about £20.
(note, the USB2 lead doesn't trickle charge the iPod in the same way, so you'll notice some power drain using it with that connection...)
