  1. In the Linux world we use Wine...a Windows emulator.

    Mac is Linux based but proprietary...Flash is open so therefor NO CONTROL!

    Mac is all about total control from hardware peripherals, batteries etc.... all the way to the closed Linux based software (True Irony). I'm amazed that they allow apps, they had to I guess but they all have to be "approved" first.

    I guess they just think everything is just SPAM unless its a nice red Apple....vegetarians maybe???

    ........certainly just as cult like ;)

  2. High frequency SPAM is just like empty calories, they are there but of no use to some....maybe thats why the kids like them.

    ....high frequencies that is ;)

    SPAM anyone?

  3. Ultimately its about what you are using to listen with...

    Crappy Wallyworld earbuds you would never hear the difference. A quality sound system in a designed sound room and it would be night and day.

    ...MP3's are for ear buds and for maybe car stereos.

    Ahhh yessssss......MP3 The SPAM of music quality :D

  4. ...and the Spam continues :D

    MP3 is just a compression format that removes a lot of needless data from a file. First off it removes all the data that has frequencies that we just can't hear...the really highs and lows. Then it removes some of the meat in the middle but only enough that you really don't notice the difference. Think of it like setting your screen colours from thousands to 256 but not as noticeable.

    It truly is a shallow and almost hollow sound depending on the bitrate compared to vinyl.

  5. The first start....!!!

    Nice job guys, let me guess, there were cylinder wire and plug torque issues right? :D

    ....yes Willie, I got the gist but we all never like to admit that we, achem forgot the basics. ;)

  7. Dad likes to keep his shop clean. It does make it easier to work, that's for sure.


    This is a very important statement....

    I found a loss of drive towards my project for a while, always dinking around and fiddling with all different things......getting nothing substantial done. My shop was a mess....tools everywhere, bench loaded and unusable and most importantly THE DUST! I sanded the car down and it layered everything! It wasn't until I cleared my bench, the floor and the dust from sanding that I was able to start getting some real work done again. I even scrubbed the floor as it does have a nice epoxy coating.

    I doubt I will have that showroom garage like your Pop's but I try now to keep it neat to keep it enjoyable.

  8. Not a good day in the garage.

    Keep your chin up and your head down....and remember "Keep on the Sunny-side" :D

  9. Things change...I'm remined of a poster I saw a while back:


    I am unfortunately equipped with the attention span of the common house fly so changing your mind just once on something means to me your waaay ahead of the game.

    Keep moving forward, guys like you push me.
