Out of the Blue

Sigh. I went against the old adage about not fixing something that was not broken yesterday, and tried to uninstall one of the multiple versions of Java installed on my computer and, naturally enough, broke something really badly. Now the odd behavior I am not able to shake is a memory leak with FrontPage (which I have used for years as an easy HTML editor). It's a little spooky... even saving a blank page immediately triggers the leak, which continues straight on until the system crashes. Sorry about the late update and over-aged news. This has been a real nightmare, I've transferred everything to a different machine now, and I'm really beginning to suspect my aging hardware may just need to be put out to pasture at this point (hey, this may be turn into a sponsorship opportunity for some hardware type!).

Vynil Records with large artwork are worth every penny.

I could not imagine having a CD collection any longer. I am surprised music CDs have lasted this long, with all the cheap burners and 100gb HDs availble.
A rich mans 8-Track tape indeed.

I wonder why people still buy CDs? While CD sound quality is OK, the sound quality of analog records is better* (as long as they are cared for and played on a GOOD Hi-Fi stereo). CDs have failed as a collectable medium.

MP3s sound even worse (10-1 compression) than CDs, but (ahmmm), they're free*.
MP3s are like a demo of what could found in real media.
And with laptops, iPods and such, portability of tunes
free from scratching and smudging is like a dream.

I don't think many people can hear the difference anymore, or they just do not care to hear the true warmth of music offered on those OLD records.

analog music makes me happy.
