SLider Related Synchronicity

For the past few weeks, I've been experiencing some odd electronic glitches. Nothing like the SLiders Karyn wrote about recently, but similar. For example, I've tried three different MP3 players that, according to the people who know these things, insisted would work with my Mac. But they didn't. So I decide to break down and buy an iPod from eBay, and it didn't work. Ended up with an iPod shuffle, but the CD drive in my lap top keeps ejecting and won't read CDs and the other computers are too old to use the iPods.

The computer at work has been coming on by itself in the mornings the past few days. According to our tech guy, it seems the computer now thinks it has a timer and comes on automatically. I'm the only one who uses that computer, and I didn't change a thing.

Last night I tuned in to our local station that carries C2C, and instead, they had on the bombastically ignorant Glen Beck. What was odd (odder than Beck that is) was that every so often, commercials would come on suddenly, over Beck; you could hear both. Or the news would come on in the middle of a commerical and/or Beck, then stop in the middle. Two or three different things would come on at the same time. I turned the station, went back to see if they cleared it up and if C2C was finally on, but nothing, just dead air. That lasted for awhile, I finally turned it off and went to sleep.

Today I turned on the classic station, and there was nthing for about ten minutes but a steady high pitched "beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep. . . ." When I went back, a few hours later, it was back to normal.

Other things too I meant to make note of when they happened, but didn't, and now here we are.

Sounds like you are having a spurt of activity like I have from time to time. It will continue for a while and then totally go away for weeks or months.

Doesn't mean you will ever get your I-pod to work though. Normally most things that go out during one of these times never go back to normal, at least not for me.
