The calm at the center of a pearl

Grrr, Winamp.

So, I un-installed Vista (which came with my laptop and is therefore legal) and installed XP (don’t ask) because Winamp, under Vista, wasn’t displaying my Chinese song names and it was really really really irritating me that I had no idea what was going on with my play list.

It might not seem like a big deal, but I couldn’t enjoy my music properly when I wasn’t sure what had played, what was going to play, and HOW THE HECK am I supposed to organize my playlist when I’m not even sure what’s bloody on it?!

*skips over long epic story of reading through internet posts and etc about language display and whatnot and utterly failing to make it work on Vista*

Anyways, so my boyfriend formatted my computer and installed XP and I DL-ed Winamp —and it doesn’t display!

*skips over more long and agonizing tribulations regarding forum posts and Winamp compatibility and the DL-ing of foobar.*

So, finally, someone said: “Just go to the regional settings and change it to whatever region you need.”

It worked.

Grrr, technology.
