Among recent applications to install, I found a typing application. Don't remember the exact name of it (??type) , but it was asian and made it possible to write like on a palm pilot. Unfortunately it did not support accented characters, not even on the keyboard, so I uninstalled it. After that, my ipod keeps rebooting every few minutes. The display only shows the apple logo and the ipod can't be switched off. I can connect with ssh, but not for long at a time. I try to make a backup, but that will be very time consuming, reconnecting over and over and resume copying. What has happened to it. I would rather not start over from scratch and loose everything. t.
