My World Tuesday - Boarding House


Here is another view into life in the 1860's in Harper Ferry. The boarding house occupies the upper floors of the building with shops on the ground floor. The second floor rooms are a nice size, though the upper floor rooms (not on display) were not so well appointed. The next two images are the parlor and parlor front window. The last shot is looking through the doors to the balcony.

Dear friends!

Is it a deal to change iTunes to mp3? I say NI :) Its really puzzling not being able to play iTunes tracks with my $300 iriver!
Digging for a solution brings certain results. To [url=http://drm-removal.com/features/iTunestoMP3/convert_iTunes_to_MP3.htm]convert iTunes to MP3[/url] I used this tool drm removal (drm-removal.com or something like this, please ask me - will find that web again). I don't care what is drm - what I read, its something dealing with protection and nothing about iTunes.
But this tool really works for me and it converted quickly my iTuines entire library, including video files!.

What is your way of doing it? Why itunes makes this shit? I didn't like ipods at all! They simple stuck and suck!
What is that drm that I loose converting my itunes to mp3?

thanks in advance!

Just to share an expirience:
I digg a way to grab Youtube videos. Some of are sites where you put the url from YouTube and it gives you file with strange extension and small size. Some are really complicated.
My way was to use moviesherlock (moviesherlock.com or sm like this - please ask me - will rememeber). Really simple utility, that just works, and only 1 button in software.

I downloaded even HD movies!

But it looks too easy, has no player, but just works. It downloaded ~12 concurrent movies for me and actually slows down my system. Its possible to do search in [url=http://moviesherlock.com]moviesherlock[/url] and search results differs from what you see in YouTube. Thats strange.
Who knows - youTube results are same for same text? I likes cat (Simons cat / dog).
Why doesn't youtube allows to download its movies without external tools?!! It actually sucks!

Thanks in advance!

Sharing my own experience, hope it helps someone.
I'm an iTunes user and there are gigabites of m4p files on my hard drive. Of course I enjoyed them on iPod. But last month my iPod was broken (sh*t!) and I've got a new zune player on St Valentine's day! Obviously I couldn't transfer my M4P collection to it because these file had iTunes DRM protection. Luckily I found [url=http://mp4-converter.info]M4P converter[/url] and converted all my iTunes library just in few clicks!So I would recommend this [url=www.mp4-converter.info]M4P converter[/url] if you have any problems with protected files - it will convert them to unprotected MP3 or any other format so you can use them on any player or PC.
The url is mp4-converter.info or something like this. Tell me if you need exact will go thru my mail
