Like installing software from a 3rd party repo?
Seriously? Look at how bloated the average "modern" base install is. Look how many background daemons there are. Efficiency went out the window along time ago. The linux of Slackware, or even Gentoo, has largely ceased to be. It has become what it once reviled.
Someone dropped the ball big time on the name. There is already a software company called ORBX...they make flight sim addons.
Consider me jealous.
Not sure I could afford to run one of those though...
Don't forget that US Gallons != Imperial gallons.
54mpg imperial is only 45mpg US.
Get back to me when you can haul 3 friends and luggage for a long weekend.
My diesel VW Golf as 140HP, 240ft-lbs of torque, and gets 45MPG on the highway.
Yea sounds about right.
Standard course at Bonneville for high speed runs is something like 6 miles to accelerate, 1 mile for the timed portion (the speed quoted for the record is the AVERAGE speed over this mile), and then several miles to stop.
Look at video from the autobahn sometime - it is far from EMPTY.
Your complaint is illogical.
It's like complaining to the front desk at a hotel that you didn't get your wake up call...after you unplugged the phone.
Anyone who understands how security works would consider phpMyAdmin's very existence on a server to be a security hole.
Local GUI client + ssh tunnel ftw.
I didn't figure the slashdot crowd would have a clue as to such stuff.
I run a Nagaoka MP-110. Retails for around $120-$150. It's not super high-end but it's a definite upgrade over the basic entry level stuff. I'm also running a Groovetracer acrylic platter.
Audiophile stuff doesn't have to be expensive, and it doen't have to involve lots of fancy cabling and the like either.
My home setup, most of which I bought used, I put togther for under $1k.
$200 Kenwood receiver, old enough to have a good phono preamp, new enough to have an SP/DIF connector
Polk RT800i speakers, bought used off a coworker for like $150 (Original retail was low 4 figures)
$400 Rega RP-1 turntable
Digital sound comes from the PC
It sounds pretty good. Not super super highend but it's good.
Honestly, just having a decent clue about setup can make a world of difference - putting speakers in corners or right up against walls is usually bad, properly angling things so your primary listening position in the sweet spot - not rocket science.
I'd wager that my system sounds better than the system 99% of music fans listen on.
Here's a much more in-depth explanation of why Nyquist is very very easy to get wrong.
Nyquist-Shannon only holds in theory, with "perfect" components.
Real-world DACs and ADCs are FAR FAR from perfect, and the low-pass filters used to prevent aliasing are imperfect also. That's why you need well above 40k sample rate to accurately reproduce the range of what humans can hear.
