If IBM were to get into search, it would be an expensive enterprise product. They don't do "commodity grade" anything. They just don't get the business concept.
For the longest time I had a fake facebook account, as did an acquaintance. Despite the fact that neither of those accounts were connected to our real lives, and the fake accounts did not follow each other, Facebook was able to suggest I may know my acquaintances brother...
Facebook is a stalker so dedicated to looking in your windows while masturbating in the bushes behind your house that it not only planted the bushes, but also built the house.
Imagine living as a male for 1200 years, and suddenly you are a woman. That would cause... issues...
Seriously. This year has been a non-stop onslaught of "YOU WILL EAT BUGS". It's DeBeers diamonds all over again.
Stop trying to manipulate me you shitbags. I'm eating a goddamned steak wrapped in bacon wrapped in a bigger steak, served between two pork chops. FOADIAF.
1) Burglars like to see where they are going
2) turn off your goddamned lights when not needed
If I were speculating, and I am, it probably involves an exchange of money, an NDA, and enough hassle that unless you were an established publisher you wouldn't want to bother.
The scared masses will do anything to feel safer, for the children, and their children's children. We restrict the ability of the rabid hordes with just laws, rules, and a system that was supposed to make passing laws at the national level a major pain. Unfortunately that system has failed and we are left with mandatory sexual molestation at airports. But hey, if it saves just one life, it's worth it.
What a shock.
Oh hell no. Listening to raw tracks is a bit like seeing a first thing in the morning. Have you actually taken a song from raw tracks to a final mix? It's not exactly an easy task. If you really want to try it, take a look at http://www.shakingthrough.com/stems and have fun with your favorite DAW.
Yes, a difference is noticeable on many recordings, but most of the time it doesn't degrade the listening experience. On the contrary, lossy recordings played on crap speakers in a crap listening space often sound better than those same recordings in lossless format on proper studio monitors in a proper listening space.
Mumble mumble psychoacoustics.

Yeah, like I'm letting that machine onto the public internet. Long uptimes aren't about reliable operating systems. It's all about reliable power.
My unicomp model m born on 11/16/2011 is why I don't fear the never-ending soda.
Porn is almost as bad for the mind as fluoridation. Do you realize that in addition to fluoridating water, why, there are studies underway to fluoridate salt, flour, fruit juices, soup, sugar, milk, ice cream? Ice cream, Mandrake? Children's ice cream!...You know when fluoridation began?...1946. 1946, Mandrake. How does that coincide with your post-war Commie conspiracy, huh? It's incredibly obvious, isn't it? A foreign substance is introduced into our precious bodily fluids without the knowledge of the individual, and certainly without any choice. That's the way your hard-core Commie works. I first became aware of it, Mandrake, during the physical act of love... Yes, a profound sense of fatigue, a feeling of emptiness followed. Luckily I — I was able to interpret these feelings correctly. Loss of essence. I can assure you it has not recurred, Mandrake. Women, er, women sense my power, and they seek the life essence. I do not avoid women, Mandrake...but I do deny them my essence.
Did you seriously say "fewer young people"? I'm seeing the exact opposite on every band except 40m. Even the VE sessions tend to be staffed with mostly under-30-year-olds these days. It's a very different hobby than when I was first licensed, mostly for the better.
Bruce is merely lending his support with a comment. Also, the FCC wants to go that way because it makes the rules simpler. Also, we're already mostly there. Then again, who has actually read all of Part 97?
