well you may have noticed I haven't been around much recently. Anyway, thanks crazy energy prices that are the (obvious to anyone except politicians with their snouts in the trough) result of the UKs complete lack of a realistic energy policy I have decided to throw in the towel here.
With a monthly bill approaching £250 (and that's just me living in a small flat) it's getting pretty hard to justify carrying on.

Anyway, if you're in the UK and interested in picking up some much loved crunching gear at bargain prices then please pm me (there's at least couple of watercooled 580s, a 560, i7 970, power supplies, a stack of memory and a mountain mods case)

Farewell for now and hopefully I'll be back as soon as that euromillions win happens.

Hijacking a hijack, but have some pity - this is what rural broadband looks like in the UK...


hmm, is urban UK really that much better compared to the OP?




Is now the time to start the "youngsters, they don't know they've lived" stuff?

My first modem ran at a whopping 300bps, so in 30 years or so only around 125000x speed improvement. They really need to try harder :-p

And I didn't want to start an argument either, I'm sure the ins and outs of all of this are far beyond my comprehension :)

I'm with you there, hence why I said there's a lot of "voodoo" going on in cd players.

I think we're not debating the same thing - both of us are saying that amplifiers, speaker cables, and speakers can affect audio quality; but not the actual CD itself*, which is what I was talking about. Apologies if I've misunderstood, if that's the case then I'll have to have a re-read.

presuming that the cd is in good condition, yes, but as soon as the player has to start correcting any errors then there will be a difference.

I haven't managed to find the article I was thinking of but this is the same guy and touches on some of the same problems with "digital is perfect"

Ah, yes, the analog qualities of digital media.

I once read an article written by a CD player designer. It was a while ago but the basic idea was that it may come off the cd digitally but it's then converted to analog and there appears to be a whole lot of voodoo involved in the process due to any electronic noise upsetting the analog signal.

sorry, I'm a little late to the party but would like to add my thanks to Mike and Jim for their work on their project and Rackspace for their extremely generous donation.

The restore from the back-up will have wiped out the CPU time.

It's been set to "1337" so someone's having a laugh.
