Seagate STCG3000200 3TB Central Wireless Hard Driv&hellip by Seagate

Hmmn. Installed this, and initially all seemed well. I then tried to copy my iTunes library to the created public folder, and this at least started, and looked like it would take about 6 hours to transfer my 160GB itunes folder.

So what is it, then?

Simply brilliant, is what it is. it's wonderful, sweet, odd, challenging, charming, beautifully played, beautifully arranged, beautifully sung, beautifully written.

And a tiny bit mad, admirable, odd (have I said that already?), and one of those albums that will bear repeated listening over a long time.

Kaz goes her own individual way (admittedly with some wonderful help… Read more
