The Miracle of the Resurrected iPod

Today I sacrifice three baby goats at the altar for, lo, my iPod hath been deceased yet the gods have miraculously brought it back to life! All this despite my lack of faith and turning toward the Apple Genius Bar heathens.

I left my iPod on long enough for the (main) battery to drain fully and apparently this resets some internal iPod doohickey, which uncorrupts the thingamajig and lets the whatsit run freely. Plug it in again, and we're good to go. And to think that Apple wanted me to erase the whole damn device!
