Comment Audio equipment (Score 1) 338

A few years ago I decided that all I wanted from my old audio gear was my turntable that I got in 1993. So I found a nice pre-amp online (DJ-Pre II) and connected it to my computer. Now I can still listen to records, but taking up 1/4 the space. Also nice since places like Amazon have been stocking new and older titles for a couple of years now.

Thanks for everything Rob, and best of luck to your future endeavours! I stumbled upon this site in 1998 and am still a daily reader. I would have to say half of my geek vocabulary was developed through this site, and other phrases as they came into being. I've moved around and lived in 3 different countries for IT work and showed everyone I met Slashdot, so it's been a nice constant companion on the crazy web. Slashdot just got a bit smaller today. Take care Rob!

Comment My Reason - Loudness War (Score 3, Informative) 405

I recently ordered a copy of 'Them Crooked Vultures' on Vinyl, sounds fantastic! With the Loudness Wars [ ] going on for the last while, music is becoming harder to listen to with all the compression, you lose the dynamics of the recording. I've recently gotten back into vinyl because of this. My ears have been thanking me ever since!

I also remember in 1993 you could get a WWW 'phonebook' which listed all the available websites in known existence. I would mainly log on to find more door games/apps for the BBS I was still running at the time. heh.
