wow, that tops my "stupid idea" (which wasn't really stupid, considering it's working out good for me so far) as you could go to jail (assuming you are caught) for robbing a bank.

Should have stayed in the Navy until the private sector improved.

Seriously, it's the best job security in the world at this point. Considering applying and seeing if I still qualified for O.C.S at Annapolis.

You can always turn to Super-Villainy.

Lots of openings left in that field.

not really.


what do you think is probably #2 on Obamas list to cut spending once he prints another trillion dollars, which he seems incredibly sure is just the thing to do, so much he had to keep me from watching house last night.

we spend more than every other nation combined on our military and there's plenty of areas within the defense budget that can be fixed so that we can maintain the same size/quality military.

areas like giving billions to defense contractors so they can piss it all away

had a dream last night i went into a cave and there was a bear sleeping in the shadows, i had a rifle, and suddenly felt adrenaline and charged at the bear, missed the shot, and was mauled to death.

love those kinds of dreams!

This could be good for backup purposes, but I'd want to use a very standard format so my data does not become obsolete. I could just use wav files, but the size would be...ridiculous.
I just read an article in the latest issue of PC World on how to rip audiophile quality compressed files.

I haven't been able to find the article online yet... but basically it says to use Exact Audio Copy with the Accurate Rip plugin, and rip to the FLAC codec.

There's a lot of specific settings he goes into... so I would recommend picking up the issue if you are interested.

These articles usually end up online eventually. I'll try to provide a link when it does.

The article claims FLAC is currently the best sounding codec... though support is less than universal (but growing.)

Just thought I'd put it out there...

Thanks.

You know, though, even FLAC isn't going to get you much better than 2:1. Maybe it's better to just stick with wav.

I'll have to think about it.

Yeah... by dream is to have a couple of very large external drives networked, with all my CDs backed-up as .wavs on them, that I can access from any room in the house.

Expensive... but if you want it done right, that's the only way to really go.

true.

except all thats controlled by lobbyists who the defense contractors pay big bucks too

so the soldier will suffer the most cuz they have no lobbyist


because our system is severly broken.

like how EVERY public opinion poll was against the bail out 2-1, but it passed anyways

I would think one external drive for the network and another one for backup that is not normally connected to anything, so if anything happens that one will be OK. And keep it near the door so you can grab it on the way out in case of fire

NAS raid edlib.......

FreeNAS should work well enough to serve music.....

or get WHS and do a MMS server so you have your own broadcasted interradio in your house serving off a file server

with a big USB drive for backup

she was not a guy, very nice lady. Not too sharp tho.

I don't think it will work out, conversations seemed to revolve around our pets. And she didn't seem to be interested in Curling at all. Didn't even MENTION being a gamer

That's exactly what I found with the one I saw last year. We just weren't very compatible. I'm sure she saw the same thing. I know it would have eventually fell apart in the long run.

I probably would have tried to make it work a bit longer if she hadn't obviously cooled on the whole idea first, though. But it was probably for the best.

Oh well... keep looking dude.

I'm surprised more at the non-gamer thing, with things like RB2 and the music games kinda as a gateway game into the larger gaming world.

'course, they are not advertised as games, so they kinda get lost under the radar there...
