      Twitch Audible Magic is ruining VODs.

        Is that the service that Mutes VOD's, in 5min chunks, for using copyrighted songs?

        I thought there was some way to bypass it w/ VLC & Livestreamer?

        Edit: Oh nevermind. Dang, apparently it's Muted at the Source now. :\

        30 minutes chunks. 5 minutes would have been reasonable, which seems to not be the direction most companies are going into.

        Singapore! Audio heaven! In fact, no need for drugs there: get high on shopping. Gets a bit expensive.

        I guess there are people in the world that actually need what Prozac does, and I guess it must be available on prescription? Like, erm... Aspirin?

        Drug laws in different countries are weird. IIRC, ibuprofen is not available over the counter in Singapore, but one can still buy more than enough paracetamol to kill onseself as well as the headache.

      MG6pro + GO450 = Woofer engaged. MG6pro + Jotunheim = Subwoofers engaged. That grip it has on the MG6pro's balls.

        @Scott Kramer A stiff C shaped black cardstock I trimmed into shape curling around the 6.3mm jack. Don't like using electrical tape and the gummy residue it leaves when it's there over time + Jot heat.

        Audio wise or just in general?

        Franklin BBQ is probably great but has a long line. Try going to LA BBQ instead. If you live in a place where you don't have access to Mexican food then definitely hit up some Mexican spots.

        Also there's a local chain called Whataburger which I love and consider superior to In N Out. I don't know if they have a Shipley's donuts in Austin but stop by if you see one

        Hopefully there'd still be local folks around when I'm there to show me around for the better food places, but I'll make note of those you guys mentioned, perhaps I'll just queue on the weekends.

        I'm interested in mainly audio and food, since I have a (still increasing) backlog of books I need to catch up with before adding more stuff to the collection.

        King Crimson, "21st Century Schizoid Man" and do not complain if a lot of music does not excite you in the next 24 hours. That is what that song can do. Be warned.

        If you want heavy and intense a bit longer go for Beethoven's 5th Symphony.

      Given how hard it is to find Schiit where I am, tempted by a Yggy + Raggy deal that works out approx USD3500. Weighing the money.

        that's not an amazing deal, but if that includes shipping it's not horrible. I'd worry about warranty not transferring.

        The good thing is it includes 4 more years of local warranty and no shipping costs, which is the only reason why I'm looking hard at it.

        Connery was the best Bond. I didn't like Roger Moore as Bond at all. He was great in The Saint!

        It doesn't do justice to your link, but I'll post it anyway. A guy I used to work with and I were at opposite ends of the political spectrum. He liked arguing and I didn't see any point in that. Twice he really got on my nerves and I went ahead and backed him into a corner. Both times he ended the argument with "I know it's not true, I just like believing it!" then he walked away. I was pretty amazed.
