So now what do you do? If I drop completely to Linux - something like this would become a rather annoying event. As someone that has five iPads (in use), four iPods and two iPhones, that could get damn right perturbing.
Stop using Apple products would be my answer. Though you seem to be in too deep already.
That doesn't make sense though - Scott is a HUGE apple fan, and he's on Linux now too.
I tend to agree with Scott's comment earlier, if this is a problem, borrow a friends computer.
So - take @scottalanmiller and the fact that he is now over seas - how practical is borrowing a friends computer?
I can borrow my daughter's.
