        Thanks all. I'll give him this list tomorrow. He likes to "stand out", so I wouldn't be surprised if he went for the portapros simply because there is NOBODY else in high school walking around with those things :P

        Yeah, I think a lot of the Massdrop stuff is very good value. Like the NuForce EDC collaborations. Tell him to check there

        I'm thinking of getting some cheap Beyer closed backs Tyll recommended. $70 on Amazon

      Posted a for sale item, but when I click on the link it gives a 403 error. Any ideas? I can see all other sale items fine.

        The last two Republican presidents who were called stupid won second terms. So, Democrats need a candidate who can retake the Rust Belt. A native son (Brown, Biden); someone who can drive black turnout (Patrick, Booker). Preferably both.

      I already know the answer, but I'm asking anyway: anyone have any tips for Blu Ray playback on Windows 10?

        Cyberlink power DVD is what I use for bluray playback. It's the only software I've found that can correctly load up and display menus. My bluray drive included a free copy but you could always easily download a keygen to create yourself a product key. Otherwise it is kind of an expensive product. Works great though. $80 and I believe the license does not expire.

        I feel that in general, while episodic long-form content on Netflix/HBO/Amazon/Showtime is ultimately more satisfying due to deep character/plot development, today's big-budget movie releases are meh. That said, taking the kids to Incredibles 2 today.

        I typically prefer more cerebral indie flicks. But, when I see movies like Marvel, Star Wars, etc., I shut that part of my brain down, take my daughter with me, and enjoy it for what it is. Life's too short to nitpick a superhero film or space opera.

      Lava Lamps make music better. Proven fact. The question is which colors combos have the greatest impact.

        I can go to a marketplace here and order SD cards that register as, say, 64GB but in reality are only 16GB cards.

        Yeah, that is why I use H2testw. It writes data to the whole card and then reads it back for errors or mismatches. There might be more modern ways to test, but it is still my go to.

        Practical point: for music, it doesn't matter a damn how fast you can write to the card, because you only do it when you add new songs, and minutes don't matter. So keep the high-performance cards for writing video to, and stuff like that. Not necessary to top out on performance for audio... Mind you, somebody will complain that they don't like waiting 750 miliseconds for the album art to show!

        ... The Browns realize their mistake and pick Darnold at 4, and frantically try to trade Mayfield for Miami's head coach, Adam Gase. Gase agrees to sign, then backs out Josh McDaniel's style, because who the hell would want to coach the Browns...
