That's the last time I download stuff from iTunes...

So, I really like Dr Horrible of course. I decided I liked it so much that I should pay for the downloads for two reasons:

1) I can rewatch them at will, even past the free viewing time.
2) I am supporting a model that I think is much more internet appropriate, and I'd like to see more of in the future.

So, the only way to download the episodes was with iTunes. Well, that's been a big fat annoyance so far.

First of all, iTunes didn't apparently have the season pass for all three eps when the first Act was up (I seriously searched for it), but now they do. Thanks guys, I would really have liked this earlier. And, of course, there's no way to upgrade the one ep to a full season pass.

Second of all, and this is much more of a problem, iTunes has this system of registration of computers to watch the content, cept it's broken. I registered my workstation (which does the original downloading) and my laptop when I set up the first episode. Well, I downloaded the second episode from my workstation (an iMac with a static IP and domain name btw), then went to watch it.... and I was told to register the machine? I figured maybe it was ep specific, so I did so again... and was told, "You are now using 3 of 5 of your registrations."

So, I guess by the time I'm done with the series, I'll be out of registrations. What the hell? So much for the iTunes store and my using it after this series is done.

Edit later: after calling Apple, I got it fixed.
