The install, anyway. Amanda’s been thinking of ditching all of her CDs and having her music strictly digital, so to enable this, I went out and bought an AirPort Express so that we can stream our music from iTunes to our stereo. 4 hours and a lot of frustration later, I finally had the soft strains of Shakira coming out of our speaker system. The key step seemed to be that I needed to prefix our wireless network’s WEP key with “$” to let the AirPort Express know that it was in hex. The weird thing is, on Amanda’s laptop, where I initially configured the AirPort Express, for a while the system tray icon showing the wireless network status would always say that it was disconnected, even though it wasn’t. This problem persisted between reboots and then later started working again, so who knows what happened there.
Now that we can both stream music wirelessly, I’m in the process of deleting a bunch of crap from my computer to make room for all of my mp3s, which I had moved onto an external drive a couple of months ago.
I also picked up a Griffin iTrip FM transmitter so that I can play my audiobooks stored on my iPod on my car stereo. Sweet!
