Goodbye Compact Discs

I've taken another step into the modern era. Last night I bought an iPod. My first ever portable digital music player.

I bought an old school iPod 4th generation 60GB model. Why not just get a new one? Here's my reasoning:
  1. I'm cheap. I didn't want to spend more than $80 or so.
  2. My music collection is currently ~50GB and I wanted to be able to load all of it with room to grow.
  3. I'm a big proponent of FOSS and I want to hit it up with Rockbox.
My new toy should be here in a few days and I can't wait to try it out. The new Rockbox 3.0 has been getting rave reviews thus far and I'm pretty excited. I'll post back a report when I've finished it.
