Good, clean LPs on a decent system can be a more enjoyable listen than the same album on a good, clean CD via a good digital set-up. Duh. Aug 17, 2022 at 5:36 PM

        And older CDs are often better than the re-mastered version

      I don't like the Federation in the Star Trek universe - starting with The Next Generation. And I am a fan of all series through Voyager.

        DS9 has some great takes on the Federation, particularly from Quark.

      I gave up trying to print labels. My handwriting is good, so I’m using fine tip sharpies on white labels. So far, so good.

      CD organization is going well. Doing it on the cheap. Cutting old hanging folders to use as dividers. Issues printing on labels. heeeh...

      I organize by last name, similar to a library. So, The Cure is under C and Frank Zappa would be under Z.

      Organizing CD collection... File artists by first name or last name? e.g. David Bowie - D or B? Frank Zappa - F or Z? #firstworldproblem

        But if it’s a group that started with a group name and then added the singer name in front, like The Supremes to Diana Ross and The Supremes, I keep it all under the band name. :)

      Everything I've read here indicates Unison USB is a big upgrade over Gen 5. I think I'll pull the trigger for my Gungnir MB. $200.

      Gonna smoke 3 racks of ribs tomorrow. I'm too lazy to do home-made rub or glaze.

        I’ve got the smoker “warming up” and will fill it with the ribs and swee tatoes after I get back from my run.

        I've glazed the ribs. A little over 4 hours into the process. 2-3 more hours until those ribs are ready to come off the smoker. I've already tapped my Maker's 46 stash, so all is well.

        Mission accomplished. Thumbs up and accolades from the family. The swee tatoes were cooked to perfection. The ribs were “fall off the bone.”

        @SoupRKnowva At $24.59 on Steam, it might be worth getting the LE and giving ME2 another shot!

      I've read some articles disparaging "long COVID." It took me 5+ months to start ramping up my activity after COVID. Not the normal cold!

        My Polar Flow cardio load reports create a great visual of my experience. A doctor gave me prednisone near the end of April, and I've been feeling great. Out of shape, but at least i can go hard.

        I heard about this on NPR: https://www.survivorcorps.com/pccc

        Honestly, after reading Whitney's story, it broke my heart. So I'm very, very hopeful that an increased focus on long covid can turn into a legitimatization of ME/CFS with more data and real positive outcomes.

      I'm very, VERY disappointed in how Acura handled the 2023 Integra. It looks like a refreshed ILX. ZERO personality.

        @penguins I think it is based on a Civic Si. Same 1.5L and 200HP? From side, looks like Civic. Sad, because original Integra was unique looking! I had a 1997.

        Ya that's what I mean. Why have 2 of the same product? I imagine the average Integra buyer is going to know that this is basically an Si, etc. but this time around it doesn't seem like they are making the Integra "more lux".

        Can't imagine this is for any EPA stuff, homologation, or other miscellaneous reasons we sometimes see cars for either. Guess this is why we are both disappointed.

        Guess this ties into my complaint in the cars thread though - mfgs seem to have lost their way with sedans with the recent "tell me you don't know how to drive without telling me you don't know how to drive" type SUVs that seem to be everywhere now.

        Yes USA and freedom of choice, Amerifats want big cars, on and on, but all annoying none the less.
