I should know by know if I am having a problem figuring something on my Mac out, it's usually because I am trying too hard.

I wanted to print an album list from iTunes, so I could figure out which CDs I haven't loaded yet, so I went through this whole several hours long process where I exported the library list and then tried to open the resulting xml file in various applications to print it. This was a miserable failure.

Never mind the fact that if I had just looked under File->Print there is the option to do exactly what I wanted, in the very format I was looking for, easy as that. Sigh. A job of about 20 seconds.

Double sigh. Well, at least I have my list!

Too many years of wrestling with Windows clearly broke my brain.
