Comment Studer, D&R, KRK (Score 1) 236

I have a 2", 24 track Studer A820, which I run through a 32 frame D&R Orion into a Mackie Big Knob, selecting either a pair of KRK Rokit RP10-3s or a pair of tiny Denon speakers, powered by a NAD amp. The problems I still need to solve are mainly hooking up outboard gear: compressors, delays, reverbs.

Wait, that can't be right. I am actually running AdBlock on my machine, so it's not really the end of the discussion. I don't see how their paying for bandwidth is giving them power over my machine. Also: by not requesting their ads I'm saving them bandwidth too. They can do whatever they like on their end, but they choose to still serve me and other freeloaders the video streams we request. Apparently they are interested in our freeloading.

Airplanes are designed for midgets. If I have the window seat in any plane I've ever been in the window is below shoulder height and the seat in front of me is so close that I can't move my head in any way that would allow a view outside. I'm about average height (for a Dutchman). Having looked it up, I guess I'm about 12cm taller than the average Dutch man.

Not really. The early build is probably a lot like the release build that came after. You might see some bugs that were later fixed, but I wouldn't think it comprises any company secret. The code on the other hand is secret. And the early code will also be a lot like later code, so you could now roll your own Windows 8 from this code (if you did your own bug fixing as well).

You'd still need energy. Are you volunteering to hand-crank a trebuchet designed to launch a person at mach 1?

They could use a renewable source of energy, but I wouldn't want to put one too close to a wind farm.

Going the speed of light is bad for your age.
