fuck off, Jamie Bulger's murderers were out after 8.
Seriously. You get less for fucking babies.
it's relevant for those who still use DVD for home theatre.
Thank you, come again.
I had an A77! It was a Mk.III given to me by my old French teacher, stood me in good stead for six years until I lost it in a move. They're apparently making a bit of a comeback as retro audio gear goes, I wouldn't go out of my way to find one tho... I like my minidisc too much..
I have a dozen minidisc recorders and a case of blanks, so I'm good until they stop making AA batteries. You can't get media anymore, they stopped making blanks about two and a half years ago.
Are vinyl records still "hip"? Still got loads of those and spare cartridges for my player. As far as I know you can still get vinyl.
BTW, I still run my home automatics (lights and socket timers) on an Epson HX-40, which also happens to have been my first Z80-based computer (yep, got that one even before my first ZX81). My home webserver runs on a Dell Latitude CP, which is a Pentium II with a battery that lasts for frickin' ever. What more could you possibly need for a media portal?
and the Starbucks, and the McDonalds, and the Subways, and the ASDAs, and the Aldis...
the Duchy of Lancaster was worth something like £320million in rents last year. Most of the public spending on the Royals is actually the Duke of Edinburgh's stipend, who is the only one since 2012 to actually get a stipend.
I'm not an audiophile (hate labels) but my idea of recording live is a stereo microphone on a boom made from a ten foot fishing whip, fed into the line input of a minidisc recorder. For the win.
I made my own. Solid-core RG58 to BNC or RCA for the win. 600-foot maximum run length per segment.
yep, the one weakness on ethernet: those fucking tags.
The number of times I've sent cables back because they didn't have tagboots on...
the differences between music and data CDRs:
1. the MAFIAA get the $2 per unit price difference
2. there is subchannel data on audio CDRs that if missing, will not permit standalone audio CD recorders to burn to them. For PCs this makes absolutely no difference whatsoever, since PCs simply ignore the subchannel data.
3. dye technology on audio CDRs limit the write speed to (last time I checked which was admittedly half a dozen years ago) 8x as opposed to data CDRs capable of 56x write speed. This is applicable to standalone as well as PC burners. It's the disc. Speaking of which, is Ritek purple still the go-to dye for DVDR?
4. Some stack players won't read data CDRs. If they don't find that ACDR subchannel data they won't read the rest of the disc.
is there a "+1 Irony" mod? Because the Arctic Monkeys sound like shit anyway.
the really weird thing is, Virgin used to (I don't know if they still do) have default locks on adult content too, thing is you have to be over 18 here to consent to contract. Don't they think someone who is old enough to sign a fucking broadband contract is *legally* old enough to view/purchase/STAR IN porn?
I remember that, you go from plodding along to holy fucking shit! You never saw a computer crash so fast...!
