Lava Lamps make music better. Proven fact. The question is which colors combos have the greatest impact. May 25, 2018

        Is "gooey" bass a commonly used audiophile term?

        I had a blue/green one once, somehow I lost track of it before my curiosity got the best of me and I popped that bottle cap

      Micro SD cards...I assume most people go with the usual suspects? The cheap ones are temping, but I'm sure I'll regret it...

        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...

        I think it's healthy to step away for a while every so often to break the "addiction" cycle. And also to run calculators to see how much you're giving up in retirement by consistently wasting money on hobbies like this. I still want to upgrade stuff, but it takes years instead of days or months now.

        How old are we talking? I was like 20 when my dad suddenly realized I had no idea how to ride a bike yet and unceremoniously plopped my butt on a borrowed one then told me to start pedalling :P

        She told me later that it feels strange not needing me as much any more. Then she gave me a hug and said, "I always want to need you, Daddy".

        Seriously? Way to go for the gut punch, kid.

        I have a teaching certificate although I don't teach, I did complete the training. And teachers carrying guns is not only a bad idea, it is a stupid one. Let's move on. We don't have the answers and let's admit the solution will not be a simple one. Just sit back and listen to the kids for once and let us hear what they have to say about it.

        JK, are you a teacher?

        I realize there are dissenting voices.

        We do have a police officer in our building which should be mandated across the country. I'm a bit shocked to realize that every school does not have the same. That makes 1 gun in our building and it's the only one I'd trust.

        Security in our schools is terrible and definitely something can be done about that. I feel this is the real conversation that needs to be had.
